    Mm..dual sim (nano/nano sim iPhone) = no compatibility problems. Dual sim (eSIM/Nano sim) = Globe is now rolling out support. Call Globe for details or backread Globe threads. Smart is not yet ready to support eSIM.

    Ill read on Globe, so if this is true then one can use Globe esim and Smart nano sim? I assume that in order to do this you will have to buy an openline phone from local authorized resellers right? Thanks!

    Benefited from the dual physical-sim function of the XS Max recently... went on holiday abroad and prior to departure I purchased a travel SIM (prepaid data roaming SIM). When I got to my destination, just popped in the travel SIM and set it to function as/provide cellular data only so all my communication lines still use my Smart number (regular call/SMS, iMessage and Viber). Didn't have to "adopt" a non-PH number while on holiday plus the convenience of not having to lug around a rental pocket wifi

    This one... AIS Sim2fly Asia & Australia 8 Days Unlimited Data for PhP 800

    The folks there at Travel SIM PH were easy to talk to. I guess they haven't had much experience using their SIMs with the newer dual-SIM iPhones that they couldn't provide me exact instructions as to how to set it up on my XS Max so I just had to wing it. Fortunately, it was very simple and straightforward to set it up: upon detecting the new SIM, i was just asked what function you wanted it to do and one of the options available was to use it for cellular data only. So i picked that, turn on data roaming on that SIM's settings and didn't have to do anything else after except use my XS Max as I normally would

    Connection speed wasn't really blazing fast I neither did I expect it to be anyway. But it was fast enough to use for navigation, web browsing, communication and... Pokemon Go :LOL: (tried a little YouTube as well and it was also ok but didn't use it on that extensively as not to use up the initial 4GB allowance for LTE connection)

    I think as long as its the same Model Code released here in PH they will honor warranty based on the serial number. That’s what some have experienced since the iPX.
