What people are saying about Jammu and Kashmir

Had a lot of trouble scanning the QR code - in the end i opened the original emailed QR code on my laptop and scanned my phone off that. I'm being pretty careful to make sure I've totally turned off my home SIM as I got caught out with roaming charges last time I used an e-sim.

Ordered it and got it in 10 minutes! Very easy to setup! Only disadvantage is that you can't see your remaining data to know if you need to buy more or if you have enough!

Very easy to install on an iPhone 14, just scanned the QR code to install before I left the UK and as soon as I landed in Goa the ESim started to work. No issues at all

Chip worked everywhere but it is not possible to route the internet.
