Yes, the main issue is if you have somebody to help you do it.

The Canadian iphone has a sim card slot correct? Thank you.
It does but don’t forget it doesn’t have mmWave 5G. I think this might show up on eBay because usually if there’s a market people will sell them. Expect to pay a premium of course

Thank you. I thought I could by one from the Canadian Apple site and have it delivered here. It's not possible. How hard will it be to use Android phones, and the 14 Pro Max? Will I have to call the carrier every time I want to use my Android phone? Thank you.

Just pay for shipping and I'll send one over. I don't mind. Keep in mind though that the Canadian price works out to be a bit more when converted from US.

As for switching the eSIM back and forth I'm not sure, some companies charge a fee each time. I know when i do it I can just do it from my account online.

Gotta say, it was a bold move by Apple.

That is correct, only US Phones have the mmWave 5G antennas. I'm in Canada and picked up a 14Pro Max, definitely have a Sim tray in mine. My Carrier (Telus) charges $10.00 to do an E-SIM swap from phone to phone. Not going to bother with an E-Sim with them.

No, not a retailer. I was actually buying the Canadian version from the store and reselling them on ebay for a $400 mark up. I was the cheapest one too.

The 14 Pro Max 1TB is pretty expensive here, $2239 CAD + 5% tax + I would charge a 5% fee for my time.

But to be honest, they are very hard to come by now.
