Re: Iphone xs/xr/max esim support

So Rogers supports the esim, according to Apple's website.

 

When will we actually see it at Rogers?

Hey @Felipetoronto & @john99999

Apple never actually announced Rogers supported it. Someone just added them 2 under the a list however not the actual carrier list. It could change and be removed or Rogers will be officially added soon. From the link that was posted on the above post

" Someone may have accidentally updated these pages prematurely. Apple’s support page for customers to “Find wireless carriers that offer eSIM service” still only lists Bell and Virgin"

Hello @Felipetoronto

Yes its coming but it could be in a few weeks or next month. Usually Bell always as a 90 days exclusive rights for many features / services and then the rest get it.

We shall see. Until then they may not share a ETA.

Yesterday apple updated their website it says rogers and fido are supporting e-sim. I think it will take couple of weeks for rogers to implement it . I just had a chat with rogers representative he said e sim is coming for iphones but they don’t know the specific date.

Any news as to when we could do the switch o esim? I plan to travel next week and it would be super convenient if I could have a Rogers esim and put another physical sim on my phone Smiley Happy

Hello @Qubit!

 

At this time, you can only use a physical SIM card for your Rogers or Fido line and the eSIM can be used for another plan with another carrier.

Hello Corey!

 

But isn't this precisely what's going to change when Rogers implements what apple arealdy annouced here? https://www.iphoneincanada.ca/carriers/rogers/rogers-fido-esim-apple/

 

According to this I should be able to have an eSIM for Rogers and then a physical SIM card for another foreign carrier.

 

Am I understanding this wrong?
