The Chinese company has unveiled a brand-new SIM-free data service dubbed OnePlus Roaming with the most recent Oxygen OS Open Beta 7 update for the OnePlus 6.
This service will let you access cellular data without having to go through the hassle of purchasing a local SIM card abroad, according to the official changelog from the OnePlus Forums. This significantly minimises labour since you can now choose a suitable data pack from the app’s settings. Anyone who has utilised Project Fi from Google ought to be very familiar with this.
It s like a virtual SIM and should work globally in most of the countries or regions
It’s vital to remember that OnePlus Roaming does not support voice calls; only data services. For voice calls over the internet, you can rely on well-known messaging services like WhatsApp, Telegram, or even Facebook Messenger.
You can activate OnePlus Roaming by following the instructions described below if you’ve already installed the most recent Oxygen OS Open Beta 7 on your OnePlus 6:
