What’s special about vSIM?
vSIM is a virtual SIM technology, pre-installed on Star 5. When activated successfully, vSIM will be identified by the carrier by a certain number of subscribers like a normal SIM.
After purchasing the Star 5, customers need to activate this promotion package by bringing the device to the nearest VinaPhone service center to get help from the staff with a few simple steps on the vSIM app. such as: issuing OTP, taking a photo of identity card (citizen’s identity) and taking portrait photos are done. Then, the customer switches the button “mobile data” to the “on” mode to access online applications, surf the web, go to Facebook, Zalo …
In addition to using the data service according to VinSmart’s limit, customers also have the right to listen / call / text using vSIM as a normal physical SIM if the customer’s vSIM account has enough money (how to top up money for vSIM is similar to regular SIM).
When vSIM’s data package expires, the user will continue to use vSIM. In the case of a warranty machine, a genuine VinSmart warranty center will repair and return the machine customer to a previously registered vSIM subscriber. In case of a “1: 1 exchange and return” warranty, the system will assign the subscriber number and package from the old device to the new one.

This is a creative and somewhat daring step of VinSmart in creating a network community for residents, especially people in remote areas who are still confused with using data on smartphones.
