i am wondering if Fido is supporting esim on iPhone xs. If not when it will be possible for them to support.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just wanted to take a moment to share some good news today
Fido customers can now activate eSIM on their iPhone Xr, Xs, Xs Max, Google Pixel 3a or Pixel 3a XL!
The activation of the eSIM on these devices must be done in a corporate Fido store. Our customer care can also activate, as long as it's for a BYOP line.
Also, keep in mind that eSIM activations are only available on no-term activations at this time.
One last thing to note is that the iPhone on which you're trying to activate the eSIM must have an Internet connection, either through WiFi or through the primary SIM. The connection is used to download the SIM profile to the eSIM.
We hope this helps!
***Update*** As of 06/06/2019 you can now activate an eSIM with an iPhone Xr, Xs, or Xs Max on a 2 year term.
***Update*** As of 10/17/2019 eSIM can be activated in any Fido Corporate store. Check out our store locator to find the nearest one.
***Update*** eSIMs are available in all retail stores except Best Buy.
I have data only plan with 2 yrs contract but currently using that sim on my iphone 8. (from alpple store)
now i am thinking to buy iphone se 2020 (from apple as well) I would like to use my plan with esim on new iphone. is this possible? I do not have phone line plan with you, just data only. thank you!
Thank you for following up. My question is data only plan sim can switch to eSim on iPhone SE 2020?
Looking forward to hear from you again!
Stay safe and healthy!
I need to swap my SIM for eSIM, as I got a new Iphone Xr and there is no stores open nearby, the closest one is 80Km away.
Is it possible to get it solved online?
You guys are far behind competition in adaptation of the esim . The suggestion to use standard SIM card from Fido and go looking the esim from someone else is useless and ridiculous.
I need the inverse. Use SIM card from work + esim from Fido.
You are just pushing existing customers to transfer their lines to those who offer it (Virgin and Bell). You will lose us guys.
We should just all vote with our feet and go to Bell. Apple announces Fido now has ESim with the release of IOS12.1.1 but NOBODY at Fido knows they now support ESim.... How great is a company that has NO clue what's going on with it's services.... Clueless doesn't begin to describe Rogers/Fido.
