Configure ASUS Zenfone Dual-SIM smartphone for GigSky SIM

This article describes how to get started with GigSky on an ASUS Zenfone dual-SIM smartphone.

1. Turn off the power to your phone.

2. Take off the back cover.

3. If there is a SIM in SIM position 1, remove it, and either place it in SIM position 2, or store it safely.

4. Pop out the matching sized GigSky SIM, install it into SIM position 1 of your Zenfone (this is the position that supports 2G/3G/4G LTE).


5. Replace the back cover.

6. Power up the phone.

7. Open Settings / Dual SIM card settings

8. Ensure that SIM 1 is checked and available. You can rename it if you wish:


9. Open Settings / More... / Cellular networks.

10. Ensure that Data enabled and Data roaming are both ON.

11. Ensure that Preferred network type is set to 2G/3G/4G.


12. Open Access Point Names.


13. Tap the + symbol at the top of the screen to create a new APN.

14. Tap the Name field and enter GigSky, or any other name you'd like to use for this setting. Tap OK.

15. Tap the APN field and enter "gigsky" (without quotation marks). Tap OK.

16. Tap the APN type field and enter "default" (without quotation marks). Tap OK.

17. Tap the menu icon at the top of the screen and select Save.

18. Make sure that the GigSky APN is selected.


Your Zenfone is now configured to use GigSky for mobile data. You may have to wait up to 30 minutes for the SIM card, local network and the GigSky service provider to update each other to allow you to use local data for the first time in a new country. Also, it's a good idea to check any smartphone apps you have running for those that are using push notifications or mobile data, turning off any that are unnecessary. This will reduce the amount of mobile data you'll be using. Email and social media apps often use data in the background.
