    None so far. This might be a network issue so maybe in time things will get better.

    I just had my eSIM activated from Globe. iPhone is globelocked of course. Question (and pardon me if its prohibited or anything): can we use rsim on the physical slim slot so as to use smart on it?

    Thanx.

    Can you confirm that both SIMs are locked by Globe?

    You can definitely go back but I don't think it's as simple as putting the old physical sim in. Can anyone else comment on this? What are the steps needed to move back to physical sim if needed be?

    In theory it should work. - But I have yet to try it.

    Request for a new physical sim as the old one has been deactivated.

    Hi, I just got an Xr and knowing it was dual sim, I was looking for 2 slim slots hahaha (toingks). So this is what's an esim pala.

    Anyway, I really don't need two sims, and am currently using my old sim card. Question-- does using an esim have any advantage over the physical sim?

    TIA

    Main advantage for me would be muggers (holduppers, I mean), snatchers and thieves would have difficulty getting rid of my eSIM should my phone be taken by them (you can never be too sure).

    Got my esim from Globe.

    Now I have both my smart and globe on one phone.

    I do miss having a spare to hide the work phone. Let’s see how long I keep it this way or if I’ll get an international Nano sim.

    Mmm...main advantage of eSIM is ease in switching carriers both here and abroad provided the eSIM slot is unlocked (not tied to any network or telco). Second advantage, once the carriers make it available to enable multi-eSIM use, your iPhone, Watch and other devices will just have one number. Third, Internet of Things or IOT devices becomes practical to own. Your phone is talking to your ref is talking to your washing machine is talking to your TV is talking to your vacuum cleaner is talking to your home is talking to your car.....use your imagination.....It is the future.............In theory.....

    I’m sticking to my physical sim because i want to rid myself of the hassle of deciding which line to use, AND most importantly, of keeping the option of a second but undeclared line within my grasp and unbeknownst to anyone else. There may be IoT but I subscribe to AnOnymiTy...

    Also keeping that esim open will allow me to use international carriers without “losing” my main line abroad.

    performance wise, does the esim have any benefits? network signal, LTE bandwidth, battery life, etc?

    I think it will just be the same as with a physical sim
