Hello @hhhiii

Unfortunately Canada and US will not be supporting Dual Sim. DUAL sim is only for China.

That's actually incorrect.  All the new iPhones will be dual SIM.  In China, it'll be two nano SIM cards.  In the US & Canada (and other territories) it will be one eSIM and one nano SIM.  At launch, Bell is the only carrier supporting eSIM, but hopefully, it won't take Rogers as long to get up to speed as it did with Apple Watch support!

Hello @Salinger1

If you look at the post above yours, you will see I corrected my self after I read into it more and checked it out..

Wrong also. Telus is also supporting ESIM for the new iPhones. I spoke to a executive manager ( that's nearly a OOP with Rogers) and they said they are also going to support it at launch next week. Rogers is now the only one out of the top 3 that hasn't said anything about the ESIM in the phone yet.

My bet is that they will try it out with the watch and the activate it later on, on the phones. Unless they do both at the same time.

If you look at the timing of the posts, you'll see that I posted 1 minute (or less) after your update.  Your update wasn't there when I started typing, but was afterward.  Phil made it quite clear during the keynote that all iPhones would be dual SIM.

As for TELUS, no sorry, I don't consider myself wrong.  I am going by what has been officially announced by Apple.  Look at the keynote screen for the eSIM section.  Apple says only Bell at launch.  If TELUS is also supporting it, it is not official yet and your source may well be right, but they have also been wrong in the past.

Small Business account holder here!

This is my first time reserving a phone through this particular online reservation system and I'm wondering where I have to go/what steps I have to take? 

Also, what time does pre-order start at for Small Business accounts?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hello @inferno129

How will anyone know if no carrier in Canada has releases that information..... 😂

To be fair, I believe it will start at $750. There is no way that it will be less then $750-$800. This is the bigger and more expensive model. It's $1,519 outright (64GB). So that half of that and it becomes $750-$800

Re: Apple iPhone Xs / Xr & Xs Max Questions / Reservation numbers!

When you go to device reservation in Business Self Serve I have been told it is supposed to take you to rogersdirect and automatically sign you in - although I haven't seen this in action yet.

 

On that topic - does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade on a small business account at the apple store?? That would make it alot easier for me, i'm upgrading 3 lines this year 2 on my personal account and my 1 small business line all to iPhone Xs Max.

 

Also is there a limit to how many iPhones one can reserve to pickup on launch day from the apple site? I won't be using Rogers reservation system as even though i've got up early to reserve i've never actually gotten my phone day 1 with them always problems. Last 2 years I did apple reservation at 3am and got a reserved device(s) on launch.
