Support for eSIM in the iPhone Xs?

So the Apple september event has come and gone, but there doesn't seem to be any new info on whether Vodafone will support eSIM or not. 

 

Perhaps this info will come out once iOS 13 is released. Fingers crossed.....

I hope so but compete silence from Vodafone doesn’t fill me with any confidence

This is very interesting. Given me some hope that Vodafone will also support eSIM even though they have been very quiet about it.

I think O2 will release it when ios 3..1 is released on 30th September.

Well I think if Voda don't announce something very soon they could lose a huge share of the preorders for the next iPhone. It's not just EE to compete with on latest technology. O2 were very late to the eSIM party on watch but they have pulled it back bringing it to phone.

I can't use EE as I get no signal at home but O2 works fine so if Vodafone don't bring out eSim soon then I guess I'll be off to when my SIM only plance expires in November.

Hi all, we're as excited as you about the option to use an eSIM with our phones and can't wait for this to be released! As soon as we've any updates about this, it'll be announced first our Coming Soon page.

sorry Mark the standard response is wearing a bit thin now. It's been the same for a year. All we want is a timeline so we know whether to stay or leave. We now have a second option which opens it up even mote. It's extremely tempting to leave once O2 release so then I can have work and personal on the same device.

Yeah that standard response is wearing very thin now.

 

As is we are working hard with Apple.

 

If I was was working hard with a provider in work and had failed to deliver a customer request after a year... well I’d probably of been sacked 6 months ago tbh

completely agree. 

this isn't just the fact they aren't delivering its more that they aren't even giving assurance that a) it will become available and b) an estimation. 

I do not believe this to be anything exclusive. O2 will roll out on 30th September I imagine when iOS 3.1 is released.  I seriously hope when Voda do it they do something special with it like they will email you the QR code rather than going to store.

Yesterday, a Vodafone suppprt person claimed via the web chat,  that they’ve supported eSIMs for watches and phones for a while already. I pointed her to this thread, to which she replied, “that must be an old thread”. 

 

Yeah, whatever.

It's great that not even their customer service and support staff know the difference between eSIM for Watch and eSIM for phone. I think it has be completely complicated by even mentioning eSIM support for the watch it should just be that the watch has cellular makes no odds how.

It is an old thread! :Smiling: About a year old to be precise. And we're still nowhere near getting any answers than we were this time LAST year. 

 

There's nothing on the coming soon page, so I'd advise not holding your breath. O2 will be rolling out soon and EE have already got it. Time to jump ship soon me thinks.

Instead of messing around changing the My Vodafone give us something that will actually benefit us and make use of the functionality of the devices you sell.
