For many, eSIM may still be a hidden science: exchanging a physical card for technology that is not seen in practice raises some doubts. Although all national operators already have this alternative, it is clearly not being promoted.

eSIM exists but is somewhat hidden on websites Vodafone (2.5 euros), Meo (for smartwatches with M IoT tariff) and NOS (is free). How we can set it up may not be the easiest and most intuitive – right from the start, how do we know if our smartphone is compatible with this dematerialized card?

The two brands that sell the most eSIM models in Portugal are Samsung and Apple. From the Korean brand side, this feature can be activated on S20 and later models. Z-fold and Z-flip; on Apple terminals, you can set up eSIM on all models from iphone XS.

In practice, an eSIM is a chip that comes with phones and can receive information from the carrier as if it were a traditional card. On Vodafone, Meo and NOS, you need to go to a store and ask for a physical card to activate the eSIM, a process that involves reading a QR code, for example.

However, Wu (born in NOS, em 2020) became the first operator to implement a concept that does without any ancillary physical support. Here you just need to use the app and follow a series of steps that will activate the eSIM (for free) on your smartphone in about ten minutes – exactly this process PCGuia checked, at the invitation of the brand.

The operator sent us iphone 11, one of the eSIM compatible models where we needed to install the Woo app; the first thing to do is to select a plan (we chose 15 GB of data / 15 euros per month) in the “View Woo Products” on the first screen that appears in the app; then we need to select “New Woo Number” and, very importantly, enable the “Use eSIM (eSIM Digital)” option.

Next, and since we’re not customers (the guide is made for this purpose), we had to fill out a form with our details, including an email address and an alternate phone number – both of which would later be used by Wu to send information about our new eSIM.

The next step is to confirm our personal details and choose the payment method − PayPal or Multibanco – however, the first month with the tariff will always be free. To complete the setup of the Woo app, we are shown our pin, which we must then use to unlock the eSIM.

Now the activation continues on iOS where we just have to press the blue buttons to confirm the eSIM activation; after a few seconds, the Woo application indicates the completion of the process, which is signaled by sending an SMS. From here, simply enter the pin when iOS asks for it and the eSIM is ready to use.

On the iPhone (same on Android), eSIM can be used with a traditional SIM, even if it’s from a different carrier – that is, we’re left with a dual-SIM smartphone, where one number can be personal and the other professional. To manage it, we use the “Mobile data” area in the “Settings” of iOS – here we define one of them as PE (Personal) and PR (Primary). There is also an option that allows us to add more eSIMs, however we can only have one active at a time.

FULL STOP
Woo’s 100% digital eSIM configuration is simple and straightforward, but the app may give a clearer indication at first to start the process, given that this is now one of the carrier’s core (and exclusive) features. .

However, once you get started, the app will smoothly guide you through the entire process; sending emails and SMS to confirm that everything was done correctly gives additional security to customers who may sometimes wonder if they did everything (or not) correctly.

How the Portuguese Map Saved Me in South Korea

How the Portuguese Map Saved Me in South Korea

None of my Luxembourg cards went through the taxi driver’s device in the middle of Seoul.

None of my Luxembourg cards went through the taxi driver’s device in the middle of Seoul.

I know it was nine thousand kilometers. That it took me about 13 hours by plane to get to the other side of the world. That the taxi driver did not understand anything from what I said. That I did not understand anything from what he told me. But all I had to do was stop at the door of my destination, a hotel, on one of Seoul’s many avenues, and turn around to realize it was time to pay the bill for I don’t know how many thousand Koreans had won. Instinctively, I opened my wallet and proudly pulled out my Luxembourg bank card. Turning away, the taxi driver quickly handed me a small white car that looked like something from the Cosmos 1999 TV series. And so he handed over the card. From the first try. Anything. It must be a small device, I thought. I renewed the card again. And he went back there, trying to get through it. Anything. Let’s try with the second Luxembourg card. After two more attempts, nothing. And the gentleman at the entrance to the hotel where I was, opened the taxi door for me. And the taxi driver looks at me suspiciously. And I imagined myself already being interrogated by the South Korean police, detained at a police station on the other side of the world because I couldn’t pay the bill. When… I remembered my Portuguese bank card, which I hardly use. Without much hope that it would work, I handed it over to the taxi driver. And to my surprise… it worked!

This is one of the mysteries that has tormented me for a long time. Why does the richest country in the world, which ranks second in terms of investment funds in the world, have such an archaic system of bank cards, compared to the Portuguese system. Because ATMs in Luxembourg can withdraw money and nothing else. While Portuguese ATMs only need to cook….they can pay bills, transfer money, charge mobile phones, buy train tickets and even pay tax debts.

As for South Korea, where I went with the Economic Mission led by the Crown Grand Duke, I keep the memory of a high-tech city full of Christmas lights that never stops. Where historic buildings sit side by side with skyscraper architecture of the future, in the world’s fourth largest metropolitan area with a population of over ten million people. Friendly, delicate people who do everything to guide us. It was 72 hours in the eastern lands, full of surprises and some disrespect for journalists from the local authorities. At the last moment, journalists were canceled at the Korean Space Forum, where the Korean president was present.

I write these words knowing that at this time the last funeral ceremonies are taking place and honoring the Portuguese Viktor Frankl, Joao Semedo or Johnson for friends.

I could start by talking about João Semedo and his work, but I can’t because I didn’t have the good fortune to work with him and there are so many others who could do so with great right. I could talk about Viktor Frankl, the famous Viennese neurologist and psychiatrist, but somehow I already did it in last two articles.

What makes me say that I believe João Semedo’s path reflects what Viktor Frankl has always believed in and has led many others to follow in that conviction is that we are within our reach to find the meaning of our lives. helping others find the meaning of life. their lives [1], regardless of our existential biography. For Frankl, in any hopeless situation, there is always an opportunity surpassMos this is us to position ourselves in front of every moment of our lives, counteracting the consequences and symptoms that we may experience, because each of usfromWith this is It is proposed to behave freely and responsibly in all life circumstances. And I believe that João Semedo, faced with adversity and the contexts he experienced, decided to confront life, finding in it the motivation to transcend himself.
