    • Does iPhone Hotspot work with OneSimCard?

      There are a few settings to make sure for this to function properly on your iPhone:
      1. Settings - Cellular - Cellular Data - ON
      2. Settings - Cellular - Data Roaming - ON
      3. Settings - Cellular - Cellular Data Network - Cellular Data - APN=send.ee for Plus SIM and APN=apn                                                                                                             for Expedition (formerly Data & Roam SIM)
      4. Settings - Wi-Fi - ON
      5. Settings - Personal Hotspot - ON. 
      After turning the Hotspot on, you should stay on the Personal Hotspot screen of your iPhone for SSID of your phone to show up on other Wi-Fi devices, so you can get connected.

You can make these changes from the settings of your phone at any time. In short - eSIM offers greater flexibility to your eSIM compatible phone. It allows you to use the service provider of your choice - wether you are traveling or staying home.
