    the thing with this esim thing is, I'm worry if I should buy an AW AC now with my iPhone XS max this christmas or should I buy it when then esim service is up now?

    I guess I should buy now the AW Aluminum and then, when the esim is now available, I'll just buy the AW SS gold. I really want that ti pair with an iPhone XS max. :p

    It's a software thing. eSim has been around since the iPad Pro 9.7" as well as Apple Watch Series 3.

    I'm glad eSim is "unlocked" for network locked devices as per Verizon. Hopefully, adoption is fast. As in when you arrive at your destination country you can just scan a barcode, pay for the data plan and activate eSim at the airport telco kiosk.

    hey guys, any update on this? I saw a random picture in Facebook where the user was able to enjoy the Dual Sim ( reg sim + esim) "Globe + Smart", is that a China version or is it already possible to enjoy this feature with Globe? Thanks a lot

    No update. That phone you saw is probably a china unit.

    Got an eSIM earlier from BGC High Street. Uptown Mall also has eSIM, that’s where I first asked.

    Oh guess I was wrong. They did make it before 2019! Haha. I wonder why there was no announcement from them. That’s weird.
