Embedded SIM supported?

I am recently considering to buy iPhone Xs unlocked phone which supports dual SIM system, the one is physical and the other is eSIM.

I wonder if Fido is able to support eSIM for iPhone instead of physical nano SIM.

If so, how could I use it and am I able to use current plan after changing SIM from nano SIM to eSIM?

Hey @shadow8282 and thanks for posting! Very Happy

 

You will be able to use your Fido SIM with the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max models. At this time we do not have more information on eSIM but if anything changes we'll be updating Fido.ca

Hey @nomadmtl! Congrats on you first post. Smiley

 

As much as I'd love to be able to answer your question, at this at the time it would be a hypothetical since we currently don't support it. If that changes, it may be a possibility, but no guaranties.

According to Apple, Fido / Rogers supports esim.

 

So when will Fido roll it out?

Hey @john992

 

No news on that for now, we only support physical sim cards at this time!

 

Thanks.

How can you not have ANY news on ESim - it's all over the news that Fido/Rogers now have ESim - just nobody at Rogers/Fido knows it.

@globalstar66 you are reading it wrong all those news outlet is making assumptions based on Apple's website. Last time I check Apple is not Rogers/Fido. Until Rogers/Fido officially announce support for eSIM everything should be taken with a grain of salt.

 

It's most likely they will and Apple just jump the gun and added them to the list.

Hello @mtc,

 

Currently Fido has not officially announce the support of e-SIM if or when they do they will announce it on the website.

Re: Embedded SIM supported?

Hahaha what a JOKE. Fido doesn't give a rat's about their customers. If they did, they would give all their customers access to the SAME deals. But some people that have a single line and have been customers for a year, pay 40% less than others with 5 lines for the past 8 years. My brother and I are those examples. And please - Apple has provisioned Fido AND Rogers for months now for eSim. The initial 3 months exclusive they gave to Bell ended at the end of November... It's Feb 2019 now. Most utterly useless network on the planet.

Hello Globalstar66,

  I'm not sure Apple needed to provision the mobile providers for eSIM. Apparently, it was Rogers who told Apple they were going to support eSIM in December. Accordingly, Apple put that information on their website. However, for some reason, that support has not yet come to fruition. As such, Apple has removed eSIM as one of the features Rogers supports (see here and here). Strangely, Apple still lists eSIM as one of Fido's supported features. That said, keeping that feature as supported for Fido was likely an oversight on Apple's part.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers
