Hi @MARIAV 

 

This is a question that has come up many times, and Vodafone are still working with Apple to introduce the feature to the network.  Vodafone will not give be in any position to give any information.

 

Please see these previous threads:

Have you perhaps considered another phone such as the Samsung Note 9 Dual hybrid duos version @MARIAV 

I used two different sim cards in that phone and it worked very well.

You maybe waiting quite a while for Vodafone to support the esim !

Current Phone > Samsung Note 10+ 5G _256Gb > Model: SM-N976B.

Samsung One Ui 2.1  / Android 10.

 

Samsung Gear s3 Frontier Watch.

Samsung Galaxy Buds.

There's no evidence Vodafone are even looking to implement it, if you want it, go elsewhere.

Even Three have announced it's coming soon.

As long as you have an unlocked iPhone, you should be ok with an EE eSIM. I have a Vodafone SIM and an EE eSIM in mine. I can then swap depending on which is the better network.

Id rather just keep the same company for all so looks like I'll have to move my 5 contracts over to EE. 

What about "sim swap" it says enter eid sim number. Could we not just enter the same number of the Iphone esim?

this is for Apple Watch only. Many of us have done this and killed our physical SIM card and had to get a new one
