    Courier delivered my phone a few hours ago. Was surprised that they deliver on weekends. The hotline told me it was Mon-Fri only.

    Mm...Globe and Smart have not officially launched eSIM support. But best info as of this moment:

    eSIM iPhones from Globe will be Globe-locked. Same with Smart, making the eSIM useless here. If you require your eSIM to be network interoperable, go for the factory-unlocked eSIM iPhones. Most likely, once the eSIMs are locally supported, the FU eSIM iPhones can be used with both.

    To be prudent, don’t buy yet and let them launch it first.

    Here is the text:
