KnowRoaming is a pre-paid service, so credit in your account is required in order to use your KnowRoaming service abroad.
Tap the balance icon ($) on the home screen of the App.
Select the top up amount from the available options and tap 'Continue' to proceed to payment.
Now you're ready to use KnowRoaming with your iPad while abroad!
You will automatically switch to the KnowRoaming network after you turn on your iPad after arriving abroad. On the home screen of your iPad it will read "KnowRoaming Active" at the top of the screen.
If for some reason, the automatic switch did not occur, perform a manual switch to KnowRoaming.
*This portion only pertains to the use of the KnowRoaming Gobal SIM Sticker.
Go to your iPad Settings > Cellular Data > SIM Applications > Manual Switch > select the first letter of the country > then the country name. Wait a couple minutes to connect to the network.
