    I’m getting tired of having to go to globe the past two years to get new e SIM cards to scan for my new iPhone. Probably will get the 12 and apple has help online showing that you can transfer the e sim wirelessly using the same log in provided the telcos allow it.

    so do our telcos allow transferring the e sim without having to get a new card?

    As of now, no. You'll have to get a new SIM or eSIM card.

    They could even implement it directly to their mobile apps (e.g. GlobeOne app). Other carriers overseas have already done it, so I'm surprised they haven't found a way to automate it since it's all digital anyway.

    Mm...should be rushed. I dont understand the pussyfooting. ESIM is just another channel for them to exploit to sell their services. Granted that not a lot of smartphone owners possess phones with eSim, it is still a wasted opportunity for them to push eSIM electronically or online instead of forcing subscribers to one of their tiny stores.

    Yup! and they'll reduce marketing, and commission costs pa, increasing their margin.
