Re: Iphone xs/xr/max esim support

As it appears that Rogers is not providing any helpful insight into esim support, does anyone here have any recommendations on how I can add a second phone number to my iphone xs max? The whole reason I bought it was to be able to have a second phone line for business through esim, but thats looking like it probably wont happen

We all do have the same purpose. Unfortunately, Bell is the only Telco that stood up so far for their customers, and enabled eSIM on all of the eSIM supported phones (iPhone and others).

I decided to move to Rogers from Bell, cause I always hear Rogers are forerunners in enabling new features compared to the rest of the other Telcos, and that's why I loved them (LTE, Wi-Fi Calling, Visual VM...etc), but I am not sure why they stopped being ahead of the game recently. Looks like Bell is picking up, and I have to revise my decision to keep staying with Rogers!

I'm not 100% sure but Bell might also have exclusive rights to these new Apple features for a set period of time.  I don't think Telus offers esim support either.

 

If you recall, Bell was the only carrier to support the LTE Apple Watch for a few months until Telus jumped on board (and then Rogers jumped on board after that).

Correct. for 3 months, which ended the 31st of January. Telus has it, but not publicly announcing it for some reason. I saw friends with Google Pixel using the eSIM on Telus. Its only Rogers who doesn't speak at all on even the ETA to support it!

Hello @hatemkamal,

 

We appreciate you taking the time to post your concern in our Community.

 

I love new technology and the Esim is a pretty huge step forward so I am excited to hear more information about when it will be available at Rogers. Regrettably, we do not have an update to share at this time. Once we do have a specific timeframe as to when it will be available we will ensure the Community is updated.

 

I hope it is soon!

Thanks for the reply! I was wondering if there’s perhaps any way to let know the corresponding decision making bodies in Rogers that there is definitely a lot of interest in seeing Rogers adopt this technology. Does discussing it on this forum count as that?
