Just wanted to take a moment to share some good news today
As of today, April 24th 2019, Fido customers can now activate eSIM on their iPhone Xr, Xs, or Xs Max!
The activation of the eSIM on these devices must be done in participating Fido stores. Our customer contact centre will not be able to activate eSIM so please head over to your local Fido store in order to get it done. Here's a list of participating:
|Chinook Centre||6455 Macleod Trail Sw, 146||Calgary||AB||T2H0K9|
|Metropolis at Metrotown||4700 Kingsway, 1163||Burnaby||BC||V5H4M1|
|Richmond Centre||6551 No. 3 Rd., Unit 1110||Richmond||BC||V6Y2B6|
|Guildford Town Centre||10355 – 152nd street, 2542||Surrey||BC||V3R7C1|
|Polo Park||1485 Portage Ave., Z009||Winnipeg||MB||R3G0W4|
|Bramalea City Centre||25 Peel Centre Dr, 113||Brampton||ON||L6T3R5|
|Square One||100 City Center Dr., 1-857||Mississauga||ON||L5B1M7|
|Rideau Centre||50 Rideau St, Unit 327G||Ottawa||ON||K1N9J7|
|Fairview Mall||1800 Sheppard Ave. E, Unit 1032||Toronto||ON||
|Toronto Eaton Centre||218 Yonge St., H014||Toronto||ON||
|Carrefour Laval||3035, Boul. Carrefour, R044||Laval||QC||
|Montreal Flagship||1004, rue Sainte-Catherine O, Unit 22||Montréal||QC||
At this time, only these locations can activate a line with eSIM.
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.
There are lots of threads on e-sim, and I see that Fido plans on supporting it soon. This is good news.
My question is whether wifi calling will work with e-sim while travelling.
For example, traveling to UK: wifi calling on fido SIM to call home so roaming is avoided, and local calls with UK SIM.
This would be ideal. Even better would be to somehow only use wifi calling while travelling, as currently, I usually keep my iPhone on airplane mode and wifi on, so that I don't accidentally roam.
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.
