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!
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!

I seriously want to know if Rogers will support eSIM for Phones in the short term, or its something postponed to a further notice?
I bought the new phone to have more than one number on it. Now I can't. Good that Bell is offering it currently
So, I am at stake now to take a decision. Should I wait you guys to activate it soon, or explore other options?
I need an answer ASAP, and if you didn't, I will consider it, You don't have a plan for eSIM
I don't understand why Rogers is Radio Silent on this topic.
On the Apple website it says Rogers supports esims, on the Rogers website there is not a word about esims or the timing of introducing esims.
I bought an iPhone Xs in order to use esim technology while traveling and I never thought, nine-months in that Rogers would still have not introduced the technology or would be so unwilling to even address the topic.
I expect more as a consumer, please let your customers know what's happening.
