 Frequently Asked Questions
You can find all answers here if you need them

Data roaming occurs when you use a data connection outside of your carrier’s coverage zone.

The GigSky Data SIM card is a convenient and affordable way to have data connectivity for your phone, tablet, laptop, or any other mobile device when traveling away from home.

The most obvious way to minimize or eliminate data roaming fees is to use only Wi-Fi. Keep in mind because our phones or tablets are often needed most while we are on the move, and not sitting in an Internet café or a hotel lobby. It is important to mention that public Internet access is not secure, leaving you susceptible to identity theft. Cellular data connections, such as GigSky, are much more secure.

First, you need to download the GigSky App for iOS devices on iTunes or Android on the Google Play Store. The App download is also available on the GigSky Data SIM page. Second, you need to install the GigSky SIM into your unlocked mobile device and configure it to use the GigSky service:

  1. Ensure that the power is turned off on your device.
  2. Remove the old SIM (if one is installed), pop out the matching sized GigSky SIM, and install it in your device.
  3. Power up your device.
  4. Menu options vary between devices. You need to ensure that the following configuration settings are made:
    Cellular Data -> ON
    Data Roaming -> ON
    APN -> “gigsky” (without quotation marks)
  5. Activate the GigSky SIM using the GigSky App by following the steps. You will need to enter, or scan with the camera, the Activation Code that is printed on the SIM card holder.
  6. Once the Activation Code is successfully entered, and the mobile device is properly configured, the GigSky SIM will be automatically activated.
  7. You may now follow the steps in the app to add a data plan. GigSky data plans now allow data to be used in multiple countries. Data plans include groups of countries usually by geographic regions. Users may now use data in all included countries of the purchased regional data plan.

Your device is now configured to use GigSky for mobile data. You may have to wait a few minutes for the SIM card, local network and the GigSky service provider to update each other to allow you to use local data for the first time in a new country. Also, it’s a good idea to check any apps you have running for those that are using push notifications or mobile data, turning off any that are unnecessary. This will reduce the amount of mobile data you’ll be using. Email and social media apps often use data in the background.

You can easily test the service before departure. Simply activate your SIM and use a browser to open https://app.gigsky.com. You will have to ensure that your device settings are correct (see “How do I get started with the GigSky Data SIM card?” above).

Your package will include:

  • Universal SIM card in Standard (Mini), Micro, and Nano sized
  • Instructions on how to get started

No, the SIM cannot be used with a locked phone. However, if you contact your carrier, you may have the option to unlock your phone or mobile device. Some carriers also may offer to unlock the mobile device temporarily which will allow use to use GigSky data.

Tethering (Internet sharing) is supported with GigSky Data SIM on Android mobile devices.

If you have the GigSky app installed, there are data alerts you can turn on to manage your data usage. Also in the app, viewing the active data plan dashboard will show you the remaining data, and time left on the data plan. You can also manage your data usage on your Android or iOS device by accessing the device settings.

GigSky is a data-only service. You can make voice calls with popular VoIP apps such as Skype, Viber, Facetime, iMessage, Facebook Messenger, and Google Hangouts. You will not be able to make regular phone calls or send/receive SMS text messages.

The easiest way is to use the GigSky app to recharge or add more data. You can quickly add more data by simply adding another plan and completing the purchase using the secure GigSky app.

GigSky currently offers over 180 countries/territories for the GigSky Data SIM. The latest coverage, and data plan pricing in on the GigSky Data SIM page .

GigSky currently offers regional data plans for: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America/Caribbean, And Middle East/Africa. A GigSky regional data plan will allow cellular data to be used in all the included countries of the region purchased.

GigSky works with major carriers worldwide to make sure that you receive the best connection. Most largely populated areas have great cellular signal and your mobile device will work without any disruptions. However, there are a number of factors that can prevent you from getting good mobile coverage, just like when you are in your home country. You may receive weak or no signal due to topography, the location of the cellular tower, and/or congestion on the network. If you are concerned with the coverage for your travel or have connectivity issues you may want to contact GigSky Customer Support.

If you’re having problems with using cellular data with your GigSky Data SIM card, please check the following before contacting us for help.

  1. Check to see if your mobile device is turned on.
  2. Verify the data SIM card is installed correctly.
  3. See if your mobile device is receiving a mobile network signal.
  4. Verify the Cellular data settings for your device are correct:
    • Cellular Data set to ON
    • Data Roaming set to ON
    • APN set to “gigsky” (without quotation marks)
  5. Power your mobile device off and back on.
  6. Test your connection by opening a web browser on your device and attempting to open www.gigsky.com. If you can open our web page, your data connection is working correctly.

If you still have no Internet connection using our SIM card, please contact us as soon as possible with the following information:
Your location

  • The make and model of your device
  • Email address of your GigSky account
  • Signal strength displayed on your device
  • Cellular data settings on your device
