    Sana nga asap magkaroon na sila for signature plans nila. I have my Globe Esim installed, and a smart physical sim. I went to Japan last december and used esim to have a cellular data plan only for 8 days.

    Have the same setup. I hope Smart will consider eSIM technology in the coming days (or months).

    Does anybody have any updates on Smart's rollout of eSIM?

    It is very frustrating not to have esim on Smart while it’s been a year since Globe implemented it.û

    Smart needs to dial in on what's actually useful and important. Instead of eSim they launched 5G sim cards. What a joke. This is why Globe is assisting 3x more customers in their business centers

    Don’t worry Globe just started rolling out Volte VoWiFi for select handset devices and areas. Unlike you guys already enjoying it for quite a while.

    I wouldn't be surprised if DITO beat Smart in esim implementation.

    I have a feeling that eSIM is coming soon to Smart. Here's an excerpt from their 5G minisite:

    With Globe's eSim, you can scan up to 10 times your QR Code.

    Good thing iniba na nila ang provisioning, kasi dati nung nasa Globe Platinum pa ako, 1nce lang pwede iscan ang QR after that wala na, you need to get another copy of QR para ilipat nila profile ko sa new QR.

    You can reuse Globe eSIM QR on the same device ever since it launched.

    Not if you have to reset the iPhone or had a new iPhone. Yan yung experience ko dati unless if you had the entire backup. Naka move on nako and mas importante ang VoLTE/VoWIFI ng Smart ngaun plus mas okay ang coverage ng Smart kesa Globe, in most areas I've been to.

    Yes. My comment is that you can use it with the SAME device up to 10 times. And yes, of course I always have a back up of my phone.

    I don't see the relevance of your VoLTE with e-sim. What do you mean?

    eSIM survives a reset in settings (as long as you select the correct option) and even a factory restore on iTunes on the same device. You don't even need to backup.

    Wow SMART waited for 5G to be implemented before they adapt eSIM technology. At least we have option.
