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

Different question - would esim support also work for androids such as Pixel 2's and 3's?

Hey everyone!

 

At this time, you can only use a physical SIM card for your Fido line and the eSIM can be used for another plan with another carrier. This way you can use the dual-SIM functionality of the phone Smiley

 

If there are any updates, we'll keep everyone posted.

Re: Esim support

Fully agree.

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.

Re: Esim support

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.

Re: Esim support

Fido is one of the WORST Cellular companies on the planet!!! Always a year behind everyone else, and everyone gets a different "deal".... Been with Fodo for 8 years with 5 lines, and not ONE line has the same deal. And my brother gets a 5gb data with Canada wide unlimited deal on his SINGLE line, and been a customer for 2 years on BYOD. I call Fido, and get told that SAME package will cost me $60. How is that possible..... Wake up Fido - one morning you won't have ANY customers left. Get Esim for Apple watch and Iphone, or I will also take MY 5 lines elsewhere, like many many others.
