Interesting, weird they have to mail it. Keep us posted.
That makes sense but it defeats the whole purpose of eSIMs.I imagine that it's just easier for them to keep the same workflow for both sim and esim, and it gives stronger guarantees that the person requesting the sim card is the owner of the data plan. Will keep you posted!
This explains it pretty well. At&t reps are pretty clueless as of now on esim it appears.What types of plans will be usable? Can I move a line from my hotspot to the phone so that I have a 22G allotment of data vs 10G that is part of the phone plan? Understand you can only use one data plan at a time but some times it would be nice to have the extra data before slowdown and only have one device to carry.
THAT'S STUPID - snail mail, really AT&T? In this day and age, shouldn't the eSIM be sent electronically? How is this better than just US Post mail a physical SIM then, and we could have the dual-sim tray like China?
They probably won't activate it until 12.1 GM goes public (not public beta). But if you have the link to share, I'd like take a look at the site. Probably means will be happening soon.I tried to activate esim in T-Mobile. It showed in their system that it was working but I got no service on my end. I’m on 12.1 beta 4
Where did you read that AT&T will lock the eSIM to them, thus preventing the user from feeely switching to another carrier?Let me get this straight.
You buy a SIM-free unlocked phone from Apple directly.
You put an existing Verizon SIM into the physical slot.
You activate the eSIM with a number from ATT.
ATT locks the device to themselves?
