I’m on the verge of switching my 5 lines to Bell.
Why is TELUS not supporting eSIM yet? Can people opt in some sort of beta to get early access?

Not sure how "waiting for Apple's green light" means that Bell paid for exclusivity. Also, saying "it"s known that Bell paid more money" without providing supporting evidence, is not an argument.
So, air pretty much.
P.S. just do like "some who don't pay attention to me" and move on to another thread.

As I said earlier, I am not questioning the Apple Watch exclusivity allegations. The Apple Watch has an eSIM that is not open and that doesn't allow any carrier to be activated on it like it's the case for the iPhone.
What's questionable, is that Apple would tell Rogers and TELUS to not implement a feature that doesn't even only concern iPhones because Bell paid for that.
In other words, it's as if Bell paid Apple to have exclusivity on the Name Caller ID, and then Apple said to Rogers and TELUS "you can't have that" because Bell paid for the exclusivity on it.
The nuance is that the iPhone has support for the full GSMA standard. The Apple Watch doesn't. That's why Apple would have been able to make it exclusive to them.
Now if you tell me that Apple hasn't given the green light to officially support the iPhone, then that's different. But it doesn't prevent TELUS from enabling general support for the eSIM (which would let it work on the Pixel for example).

uh, so how's your 3 month exclusivity on eSIM theory coming along now?

Exactly. And Rogers has it for business accounts now, so it was clearly not an exclusivity thing.
Dont forget to endorse the eSIM idea https://forum.telus.com/t5/Ideas/eSIM-support-for-all-GSMA-compliant-eSIM-devices/idi-p/92709/highli...

Also, can you stop making this Apple centric?
This post is not only about Apple's iPhone. Not only the iPhone support eSIM, and Apple did not invent the standard. They're only pushing it.

Yes its because of apple that Google pixel 3 esim are not supported as well right? make a lots of sens..

By the way, interesting to see that your argument is falling apart....

When will Telus finally let me use the e-sim feature of my XR so I can use my telus sim from my work phone and personal number on the e-sim? eliminate a device to carry!!!!
C'mon get with the times it doesn't change the monthly charges you collect!!
I would have switched to bell but my work phone is telus and I am a longtime customer and like the service but I will switch if it isn't done by the time my contract is up!

I guess that Apple is also blocking carrier from activating pixel 3 , 3 xl , 3a and 3a xl esim?
They all support it and are obviously not Apple device..
Care to elaborate why then Telus could not activate them by Esim?
Think for a second..
