always a tradeoff but better than nothing. i think it'll still be a choice for consumer to activate esim on iphone.

like that telco would usually charge an activation fee. but monthly not sure, we just have to wait.

I was also hesitating about getting an export (HK) set, but the thought of all the doubts dealing with e-SIM and whatnots, deciding to take whatever risk with HK set first.

Telecom companies will only tell you that they are working with Apple in order to introduce esim to their customers. I am wondering whether HK set iPhone are covered by warranty of Apple if they are not purchased in HongKong by myself? Say if I buy from some local mobile phone shop can I request warranty at Apple orchard?

eSIM will be launching as soon as iOS 12.1 is official which could be next week after the Apple Event.

For SG, Singtel should be one of the eSIM telco.
