Fellow MIUIers,

During the MIUI 7, one of the highlights is the Virtual SIM feature in MIUI 7, many people started asking "What's the Virtual SIM?". The answer to it is:
The Virtual SIM feature is a paid service that allows for access to internet while roaming internationally, without the need to pay the expensive bills of roaming as well as the need to switch out SIM cards. Users pay a daily fee for up to 15 days, and they get to use the data services similar to while roaming, without the fear of incurring roaming charges as the system will lock the SIM card(s) within from accessing mobile internet. You can still make and receive calls or messages.

Currently, Virtual SIM supports phone models as follow:
Mi 3 WCDMA/CDMA, Mi 4 (3G) TD/WCDMA/CDMA, Mi Note and Mi Note Pro. It will be made compatible for other devices later on. All these phones will have to be running on MIUI China Developer ROM to have the feature.

Currently, the Virtual SIM feature can receive payment from only Chinese payment platforms, so if you're having a Chinese credit card with a Zhifubao or Mi Wallet account you can try out this feature if you want.


Activating, Purchasing and Using the Service

Now, on to activating the feature. Different from MIUI 6, Virtual SIM is no longer an individual app in MIUI 7, and is placed under Network category in Settings with the label of "International Mobile Data". You need to go through an agreement to the terms and conditions of using it, before you're brought to the catalogue for puchase. Let's see the process in animation.

Alternatively, you can access Virtual SIM from Settings > System Apps > Virtual SIM

After a successful purchase, a new page will show up showing the details of purchase. Notice the roaming sign while you're using the feature?

Currently, MIUI Virtual SIM supports networks in Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, , Italy, Australia, Germany, United States of America, Russia, Japan, England, Denmark, Ireland, Sweden, Austria, France, United Arab Emirates, and will proceed to support these countries: Canada, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Holland, Egypt, South Afrida, Greek and Finland.
