Unless u are on m1, else to most people, this question is not even valid to them as it is not even a choice.

If you don't change phone often, go for esim. That sim slot can be used for overseas sim.

Then again, if u r on m1, might as well use the passport?

Im just on m1 esim.
Nowadays the passport is getting more expensive.
Could be cheaper in some countries to get the prepaid sim with unlimited data for tourist.


But for some countries like usa, aus.
Maybe its cheaper for passport.
Usa $25

Cus if you get the tourist sim with decent data its USD$40-50.

The staff didn’t ask, but you yourself wanted and also shy to open mouth? Funny..

I ported to M1 primarily for a few reasons and esim is definitely one of them.

Got esim after getting this ip11promax.
Nice with dual sim on iphone.

If the cso dont want waive sim charges for you on the spot. Dont take.

Call in and ask them. Be nice, ask and shall receive.
