Even Freedom Mobile support esim now. Let that sink in Telus. You are now the only of the major carriers in Canada not supporting it. Truly sad. It's a shame Telus attempt to block people using two carriers has now failed. Since all the others do support it. That and I already ported out. Smiley Happy

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.

You could use eSIM for the non-Canadian carrier in the countries you are traveling to.

Bottom line. Telus needs to get with it. Even Freedom supports esim.

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 suggest anyone in this thread that wants eSIM to port out like I did. TELUS does not care and it’s quite obvious by now they have no plans to support it. Don’t give them another cent of your money. Vote with your wallet.

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."

 

Meanwhile...

iPhone 11 is about to go on sale. Still no eSIM support coming from Telus. I don’t really want to switch provider, but it’s looking like that might be the only option. This doesn’t make any sense!

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..

You seem to not understand that google since pixel 3 all have esim... 

 

So this prove that its not about  a reserved deal as pixel phone not having esim support at Telus cannot be put on apple head.

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