Device & Usage Details

Dataroam's European Dataroam product is a data-only solution and will not allow cellular calls nor cellular texts. You can however place calls and send texts over data-applications such as WhatsApp, FaceTime and Skype. Dataroam recommends these apps be downloaded to your device(s) prior to travel.
No registration or activation is required with this SIM. Simply insert the SIM into your device, then change the APN settings on your device per the included instructions to start using the Internet. Please note: you must change the APN settings on your device in order for our SIM card to work properly, this change should be done once you insert the Dataroam SIM into your device.
Yes, you must change the APN setting on your device to the following (all case sensitive):
  • APN: internet
  • Username: web
  • Password: web (Please make sure Data Roaming is set to ON)
The settings are likely to be in the Cellular Data section of your device. See your device user manual for instructions, or contact Dataroam Support at 1-214-509-5745, option 2 for assistance. When you return to the U.S. simply insert your U.S. SIM into your device and the APN settings will automatically default back to your U.S. network setting.
Please make sure your device is not locked to your current cellular provider. If you aren't sure, an easy way to check this is to put a SIM card from a different operator into your device and see if it still works. If this works your device is not locked. If your device is locked you can get it unlocked by contacting your current cellular provider.
Please note: this is a data only solution so your Dataroam SIM will not work outside of Europe, even in an unlocked device.
Devices must be GSM/LTE capable and must be unlocked and not tied (locked) to any cellular network. The SIM works with all data devices and tablets - if inserted into a USB dongle or MiFi mobile hotspot device, you can also connect your laptop computer to receive data.
Data Roaming should be 'On' if the Dataroam SIM is in your device. If the Prepaid data SIM is being used in an external device, i.e., a MiFi, Data Roaming should be Off on your device. The device containing the Dataroam SIM must have Data Roaming set to “On”.
The Dataroam Prepaid data SIM is a three-part SIM which means that it can be punched out of the card holder to meet any size requirement - Standard, Micro or Nano.
No, SIM cards do not need to be returned. Dataroam will disconnect your SIM card on the date you requested when you placed your order, please destroy the SIM when you have completed your trip. Should you wish to retain the SIM for future activation please notify Dataroam you wish to do so and store the SIM in a safe place. When you’re ready to travel again simply notify Dataroam and the SIM will be reactivated.

Plan Details

Yes, the data bundle is valid for 30 days from activation date. The disconnect date will be the date provided by the user at time of order, the SIM will be automatically disconnected on this date – you will not need to notify Dataroam in advance.
Should you run through your 10GB of high-speed data prior to either the disconnect date you provided, or the end of your 30-day activation period, you will be charged an overage rate of $5USD per GB. The line will continue to work until either the disconnect date you provided or the end of the 30 day billing cycle.
Yes. Should you discover you will need the SIM card beyond the disconnect date you provided at the time you placed your order, simply contact Dataroam at support.dataroam.com, or call us at +1-214-509-5745, select option 1, and we will process your request. Additional months can be purchased at the same price as your original purchase: $39 per month for 10GBs of high-speed data, $5 per GB overage.
No, the bundle is fixed at 10GBs, overage at $5/GB afterward. The bundle renews at the start of each 30 day period.
Usage can be tracked on your device under Settings. If you received a Mobile Hotspot device from Dataroam the data total will have been reset to zero prior to dispatch, this total automatically resets at the start of each calendar month so if your usage period crosses between months please make note of your usage prior to the 1st of the next month.
