First things first.. eSIM Activation

Important information: If you purchased the eSIM before the 26th of May 2023 you will need to follow the instructions below.

Please do not install the eSIM before your activation date as this will cause the SIM not to work when needed. Please only install on the date nominated and when you have arrived at your destination!

The eSIM will be activated on the nominated activation date by the supplier, you will then need to install the eSIM on your phone by clicking the below:

Make sure you land in Europe first then follow the steps below.




Important information: If you purchased the eSIM on or after the 26th of May, please follow the following instructions. (These eSIMs do not require an activation date and will activate once you land in one of the countries below and it connects to a network)

Make sure you land in Europe first then follow the steps below.




If you receive the following message:

You can ignore it as it is an automated message and is not required for 30 days of use!

❗️Note: With these particular eSIM's, you can actually delete and reinstall them (ONLY up to THREE times)❗️

If you're having trouble initially; please try deleting the eSIM, ensure your devices software is up to date and that you have data roaming switched on or are connected to a stable WiFi network, then reinstall the eSIM 👍

My data isn't working...

  1. Check that you have Data Roaming & Mobile Data turned on in your Settings.
  2. Make sure that you have changed your APN settings to match the following:
    Name: Bouygues Telecom
    Proxy, Port, Username & Password: do not enter anything.
    MMS proxy:
    MMS Port: 8080
    MCC: 208
    MNC: 20
    Authentication Type: None

Choose "APN Type", enter "default, supl, MMS", then choose "OK" or check "MMS, default and supl" and choose "OK".

Register the new APN, reboot your phone and enjoy your internet and MMS services.

  1. Restart your phone
If you've been using your eSIM but suddenly your data has stopped working

Sometimes the SIM can stop working. When this happens:

  1. Turn on Airplane Mode for 1 minute
  2. Turn off Airplane Mode - this should reboot the connection!
  3. If your phone says it's connected to LTE or 4G but the data isn't working, try to manually turn off LTE/4G to connect to 4G/3G.


Settings > Mobile > Mobile data options > Disable LTE > Restart


Settings > Connections > Mobile Networks > Network Mode > Switch to 3G/2G > Restart

It might look different depending on your device! If these instructions don't match exactly, explore your settings until you find Network Mode

I've tried everything and it's still not working

How do I find my number?

Once the QR code has been scanned and the eSIM is activated, you will receive a text from Bouygues with the phone number. The number is a french number +33 🇫🇷

How do I check my balance?

Option 1:

  • Login to “My Customer Area” on and select your Prepaid SIM Card or eSIM
  • Go to “Manage My Consumption”
  • The remaining data credit on your selected eSIM will be displayed.

Option 2:

  • You can call 630 from your smartphone and follow the instructions to receive the information about your remaining data credit. (French)
  • You can call 634 to speak directly with the customer support agents and inquire the information about the remaining data credit on your eSIM (English)

Option 3:

  • You can send the text message “conso” to 680 to check your remaining data credit.

How do I recharge?

As described on the website, the eSIM is non-rechargeable. The only way around this is to buy multiple eSIMs and swap them out as you go.

Can I call USA or Australia with this SIM?

Unfortunately, this SIM doesn't come with calls/texts to USA or Australian numbers!

We'd highly recommend using data applications like FaceTime, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, iMessages, Viber or Skype to make calls and texts instead. This'll use the 10GB of data you have allocated to you.

Read this neat little article about ways to call home!

For example: Calling a Italian number from Italy or France
