(Operation example of the first embodiment)
Next, an operation example of the first embodiment will be described. In the following description, at the start of the operation, the terminal device 10 is in the communication area of the first communication network 20A, and the eSIM 111 has a profile (first profile for using the first communication network 20A). Suppose that the IMSI (including the IMSI (A) given to the user by the communication carrier operating one communication network 20A) is stored, and the IMSI of the user of the terminal device 10 is not stored in the server device 40. An example of operation will be described.

  First, when the user turns on the terminal device 10, the positioning unit 110 starts positioning the position of the terminal device 10. The control unit 101 acquires the position information generated by the positioning unit 110 at a predetermined cycle, and stores the acquired data in the storage unit 102. Further, the control unit 101 starts a process of uploading the data stored in the storage unit 102 to the server device 40 at a predetermined time.

  Specifically, first, the control unit 101 acquires IMSI (A) included in the profile stored in the eSIM 111. The control unit 101 transmits a request that includes the acquired IMSI (A) and requests connection permission to the server device 40 by controlling the communication unit 105 (step S1).

  The request transmitted in step S1 is sent to the server device 40 via the first communication network 20A. When the communication unit 405 receives the request transmitted in step S1, the control unit 401 determines permission of connection (step S2). Specifically, the control unit 401 acquires the IMSI (A) included in the received request, and determines whether the acquired IMSI (A) is stored in the storage unit 402. In this operation example, since the IMSI (A) is not stored in the storage unit 402, the control unit 401 does not permit connection. When the control unit 401 determines that the connection is not permitted, the control unit 401 controls the communication unit 405 to transmit a message notifying that the connection is not permitted to the terminal device 10 (step S3).

  When the communication unit 105 receives the message transmitted in step S3, the control unit 101 transmits a request for requesting the profile including the IMSI (A) in the profile of the eSIM 111 to the management device 50 (step S4). The request transmitted in step S4 is sent to the management device 50 via the first communication network 20A. When the communication unit 505 receives the request transmitted in step S4, the control unit 501 acquires the IMSI (A) included in the request.

  Next, the control unit 501 searches the profile table TB2 in which the acquired IMSI (A) is stored (step S5). When the acquired profile table TB2 storing the acquired IMSI (A) is hit, the control unit 501 includes a profile including an IMSI having a mobile network code (MNC) different from the IMSI (A) (in this operation example, IMSI ( The profile including B) is acquired from the profile table TB2, and the acquired profile is transmitted to the terminal device 10 by controlling the communication unit 505 (step S6).

  When the communication unit 105 receives the profile transmitted in step S6, the control unit 101 first writes the IMSI (A) included in the profile stored in the eSIM 111 to the storage unit 102 (step S7). Next, the control unit 101 rewrites the profile stored in the eSIM 111 with the received profile (step S8).
