Hello @livefaisal,

 

There is no word on that as yet but if or when Fido supports it they will announce it on the website. 

 

In the mean time you can use your regular SIM card in the phone.

Re: Esim support

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.

Hey @Basir

 

Thanks for posting Smiley 

 

I moved your message to this thread as it deals with a similar topic.

 

Fido will not be supporting ESIM. 

 

Keep an eye out on the website, we will announce it there if it becomes available.

Hey @KAPABLE-K

 

At this time, there are no plans on supporting the eSIM, however, if anything changes, we will be announcing it on Fido.ca.

Re: Esim support

That is very unfortunate and has lost me as a customer. I'm tired of keeping 2 phones while traveling. Bad decision on Fido's part.

Re: Esim support

There is currently only one carrier in Canada that has esim support at the iPhone XS launch. Give it time and it will cascade in line to FIDO.
