Solved! Go to Solution.
As per a live agent speaking to her support team, she said it starts at 3AM EST. So i would say in about 12hrs from now..
Thanks for all the help!
So midnight in Telus' ( and Apple's) time zone.
Any update on TELUS plans to support the phone esim? Really upset at this rubbish, Apple releases a phone with an esim and it becomes a useless feature. I need dual sim. If TELUS is gonna drag their heels on this I’ll port to Bell.
Unfortunately it seems like Bell has exclusive rights for the ESIM at the moment for the iPhone. Thus why Apple only announced Bell would be the Canadian carrier to use it. So Telus, Rogers and the rest I guess have to wait until that's up.
Many times Bell has done this. Including with the Apple Watch Series 3 last year. Telus was able to sell it in December vs Bell at launch in September.
That doesn’t make sense to me. Apple is using the esim to push its use case so they can go all esim on the next iPhone. Would it make sense for them to give one carrier in a given country an exclusive on its use? Sounds like an excuse to me. Probably best to just port. Thanks for the update.
Probably best to just port.
Thats what Bell hopes will happen when they negotiate the exclusive release.
