To me, video is better than words, but here the summary:
There is support for eSIM from Telus
Telus prints QR codes
iPhones and Google Pixels are both working fine
It should be available to a wider audience soon.
Two years to develop and eSIM solution and this is what TELUS comes up with? Instead of something smart like Verizon in the US that allows you to simply download their app, enter your credentials then load the eSIM on the phone? Instead of something like Freedom mobile where you can simply log in online to generate an eSIM QR code without needing to visit a store?
If this video shows the final solution TELUS is going with, I'm disappointed.
According to Apple, as of today (April 25, 2019) the following carriers support eSim on iPhone:
Telus already supports eSim in the Apple Watch, so... what's the hold up? I travel overseas a lot and need to shuffle sims for local data, which means I lose my Telus line while travelling. I've got two home lines and an Apple Watch that can be transferred to Bell or Rogers...
I travel a LOT and really want to be able to have a local sim functioning when I am abroad but don't want to "lose" my Canadian phone. What is the Telus policy and explanation??? Please help make use of the technology available.
eSIMs from Telus coming sometime in the next 4 months? According to MobileSyrup:
"Telus and its sub-brands are looking to add eSIM and dual SIM technology later this year. However, Telus could not provide a specific time frame."
