Multiple sources I asked at AT&T - while generally saying that they hadn't been given much/any information yet - all seemed to conclude that a phone locked to AT&T would have the eSim locked as well, and that to unlock the eSim for use overseas, you'd need to purchase the phone outright. Anyone else know if this is true, checked with their carrier, etc? Complicating this is the fact that i bought the XS Max at Best Buy and got the MT5D2LL/A, which according to multiple sites is the United States – Unlocked SIM-free version. It is definitely locked to AT&T on the main SIM - I've tried swapping it - but the question is the eSim. If it's locked to AT&T as well, that rather diminishes the point of having it - unless you want to pay it off and go through the unlock procedure. I have an overseas trip coming up in December and really would like to get an eSim for data from a local provider (or simply get a T-Mo eSim here and use their roaming). Anyone know anything about this?
