What's the difference between Nano SIM and eSIM?
A Nano SIM is a small physical card that fits into your device identifies what type of plan it's using based on a profile. An embedded SIM (eSIM) is embedded on your device's motherboard or part of the processor—there's nothing to insert and nothing to remove.
How do I connect my device once the SIM is ready?
Select the "Network" icon on the lower right of the taskbar, and then select the cellular network in the list. If the "Let Windows manage this connection" checkbox is cleared, select "Connect". If the checkbox is selected, you'll get connected to cellular data automatically when you're not connected to another type of network, such as Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
I'd like to use eSIM. How does it work?
If you don't have a specific LTE carrier, or don't plan on using your existing Nano SIM, you can select the eSIM provided with your Surface Pro (5th Gen) with LTE Advanced.
How do I know if I'm getting LTE?
Your device will display a banner at the top of the screen to notify you of your network coverage. A network indicator will be displayed based on network coverage and device type, and switches between Wi-Fi and LTE networks automatically almost anywhere.
