What customers say about our eSIMs
The most daring travelers have already tried Chinaesim.com. Will you?
I have to say I was dubious about this but asked a few questions via Facebook and had great replies from Chinaesim. In Thailand 72 hours and since I switched to my China eSIM, the signal and data has been brilliant! Really really pleased so far! Thank you.
Esim did not work immediately but has been quickly activated by friendly and helpful customer service via WhatsApp service. Would definitely recommend the eSIM to my friends.
I bought esim from Chinaesim.com for 30 days although I just traveled less than 30 days but more than 7 days. When I switched the line on, I got no cellular data. I contacted Chinaesim support through Whatsapp and got response within a few minutes. So fast. They listed everything I should do. Actually, I did everything except for turning the data roaming on. After turning it on, I got data in Beijing and Hong Kong.
