Pause Your Data Usage with Firsty's eSIM - Credit That Never Expires

June 14, 2024

Introducing Pause Functionality to Firsty's eSIM – Your Credit Never Expires!

Firsty is excited to announce a new feature that enhances the flexibility and convenience of our eSIM services: the ability to pause your data. With this new functionality, Firsty users can now save their data credit for future use, ensuring that it never expires. We have built this out of frustrations that we see people experience far too much with traditional data bundles!

Part of the problem we have seen is that too many people today buy too large of a data bundle and end up not using up all of their data. Traditionally, you had to make an estimate about how much you will end up using, but with Firsty Fast that isn’t the case anymore. Also, the more days you buy the more you end up saving, bringing the price down to €1.98 per day!

How does it work?

When you buy more than one day of Firsty Fast, you'll be able to pause your data for the remainder of the days that you have bought Firsty Fast. For example, if you buy 10 days and pause it on the 4th, you are still on Firsty Fast for the remainder of that 4th day. On the 5th day your data will be paused and you'll still be able to use Firsty Free. Those remaining days of Firsty Fast you can save up and use for your next trip!

Here are some of the advantages of the pause feature:

  • Maximize Data Usage: Only use data when you need it. Pause your plan when you don’t, and resume when you’re ready.
  • Cost Efficiency: Save money by not wasting unused data. Use your purchased data over multiple trips without worrying about expiration.
  • Flexibility: Adapt your data usage based on your travel schedule and needs without any hassle.
  • Seamless Experience: Easy to manage through the Firsty app, with just a few taps to pause and resume your data plan.

To understand it better, we are roleplaying a scenario in which someone might want to use the pause functionality and save their credit for a future trip.

Imagine you're traveling to a scenic destination for a 10-day vacation. You’ve opted for Firsty Fast to ensure you have fast and reliable internet throughout your trip. However, you plan to spend three of those days hiking in remote areas where you won’t need high-speed data. Instead of letting those three days of Firsty Fast go to waste, you use the new pause functionality.

Here’s how it plays out:

  • Before the Hike: You're using Firsty Fast to stay connected, sharing photos, navigating new places, and keeping up with emails.
  • Starting the Hike: As you prepare for three days in the mountains, you switch to Firsty Free, adequate for basic messaging and navigation. You pause your Firsty Fast service through the app, saving the data for later.
  • During the Hike: With Firsty Free, you remain reachable. You send updates to your family and use GPS without tapping into your Firsty Fast data.
  • Post-Hike: Once you return from the hike, you resume Firsty Fast with the remaining data, enjoying high-speed internet for the rest of your trip.

This scenario highlights the practicality of Firsty’s new pause functionality, perfectly aligning with the needs of modern travelers who require flexibility in their connectivity options. With Firsty, your travel tech needs are smarter, not harder, making your adventures more enjoyable and worry-free.
