What do I need to know when using Pocketalk in China?

If using Pocketalk in China, you may not be able to connect to the internet using local WiFi networks or prepaid SIMs sold in China. If you have a Pocketalk with built-in data, we recommend you switch to data mode. If you’re using our Soracom Global SIM (sold separately) use this in data mode to connect to the internet.

If you do not have Pocketalk with build-in data or a Soracom Global SIM, you can still connect to the internet by switching ON the “China Mode” from the “Region of Use” in the Menu screen.

Note that the number of supported languages will be limited while using “China Mode.”

Translations may not work properly when connecting via WiFi in China due to strict regional regulations.

Once you are outside of China, you can go to the “Region Settings” and select “Global Mode” to get the maximum languages support.
