    I just activated my new iPhone XS. Loving it, by the way. :)

    So I'm looking at all the small little things that's new. In the Settings app, in the section ABOUT, it lists my Serial number and IMEI. Below that, there is another entry called "Second SIM", which shows me a different IMEI number. What is that?

    The XS is a dual sim phone, one physical sim and one eSim.

    Can you use a Google Voice number as your ESim?

    Highly unlikely. What benefit would this provide over just using the google voice app? Honestly curious.

    I was just wondering that’s all. When I upgrade, I will be using ESim for work, so was just wondering if I could use my Google Voice number or would have to have another number assigned.

    Not having to use to google voice app would be a big plus. Awful app.

    Yes I hate using the app, but it’s the only way I can use it for work without giving my personal number out. Now if my job paid for my phone and/or bill, then I wouldn’t mind members having my number during business hours.
