Hi Rogers,

 

Do you have any plans to support esim on samsung devices. Its 2021 and still no light on this issue from Rogers.

 

Thanks

I just purchased a brand new note 20 a tmobile version and has esim enabled as I can see the sim card manager. I have not had time to test the esim yet.

I cancelled my order for the fold 3 because Samsung North America has decided to not allow dual sim. It is a greed decision so if you are not happy with Samsung's decision, don't buy another Samsung phone. I have been with them since S2 and just purchased the iPhone 12 Max and yes it does support dual sim. No more carrying two phones for me.

Hi Rogers,

 

I got the Samsung s21 Ultra back in March based on it's esim capability. I travel a lot so have the option of a dual sim phone is important to me when I travel so I don't need to carry two phones. By the time I figured out the esim had been disable by Rogers it was too late to return the phone and I had already sold my old dual sim phone. 

I think Rogers owes us an explanation to why the esim has been disable.

 

Thank you,

I hear that android 12 ui 4 has esim enabled in beta version for American S21 series. If that's the case Canada will hopefully get it too with the stable release by end of this year, fingers crossed.

Iam currently enjoying my esim enabled s20 note

Re: esim support for samsung devices

@thatguyisrite Hi! What do you mean by the eSIM has been disabled by Rogers? Did it use to work and then it stopped?
Because, as far as I know, Samsung don’t support eSIMs on the Canadian market (I’m not saying their devices aren’t eSIM capable).

It does not matter whether samsung supports it or not. As long as you have an esim enabled phone you can get the QR code from any carrier and have the esim working.

@Sukut It does matter, since Samsung disabled the eSIM on their Canadian devices.

I was talking about devices from Samsung outside Canada. I have a usa note 20 and the rogers esim worksflawlessly.

Oh that’s cool! Does it have pretty much all the same bands?

Re: esim support for samsung devices

Sukut

Yes the 5g bands available that are used in canada are N41 and N71. Also has n258 n260 and n261 of which not used in canada. I get my 5g with rogers when I am not using wifi. And no wifi calling as it is not a rogers phone Well I can live with it

Have a talk with tech support, they can make Wifi Calling work (I think you have to select Rogers’ CSC though).

Once you do that your esim will be wiped out I have spoken to tech tier 2 at rogers and they confirmed it told me not flasvthe canadian firmware for the sake of wifi calling. Esi is big for me than wifi calling

Rogers is the one not supporting esim on samsung phones, but dont know why?

Re: esim support for samsung devices

I dont know specifics, but Rogers doesn't offer esim for samsung phones in part they told me because they cannot guarantee full functionality with voicemail, and all features on your monthly plan. This sounds like a small company.
