so it is possible to have 2 profiles? cause i travel a fair bit and having an additional 1 roaming profile helps
The idea is that eSIM is the HOME line. The physical Sim is for all your roaming nonsense. So buy your cheap bundles or tourist sims for that.

Never try this before, you can have more than 1 esim profile installed on your phone, but only one can be active, under the cellular plan you choose which one to turn on or off.
If you want to have dual sim where both lines is active and working, then you will need one to be on the physical sim to work with the other in esim.

You do not need to pay $5 as the eSIM has already been activated once. The switching between two eSIM profile is an iPhone setting.

You can only activate 1 profile at a time. Every time you activate eSIM, you'll need to pay a fee of $5.

Wrong. I asked M1 before if you switch phone like from iPhone XS to XS Max, you will still need to pay $5 even though the eSIM has already been activated.

Same goes to Apple Watch too

I believe he refer to multiple esim profile in one phone, not different phone.

Just realized today that the eSIM from M1 can only be activated in 1 device at a time. If want to activate in another device, need to remove profile from the 1st device first then can activate on the 2nd device.

My eSIM is under multiSIM. The other one is nano SIM.

I had hoped that at least can just turn off the eSIM profile on 1st device and activate on 2nd device. When need to use on 1st device, turn it on and turn off on 2nd device.

Guess M1 will charge if need to activate on 1st device again.

Most likely the same as currently

SG -> 1 eSIM and 1 physical(only M1 and a handful of carriers worldwide has eSIM for phones now so doesn't make sense for full dual eSIM)
HK/Macau/CN -> dual physical SIM

Why don't you convert the physical SIMs on both devices to eSIM for your MultiSIM service? That way you don't have to switch that eSIM between the two devices. Btw if you switch eSIM between devices you would need to incur $5 eSIM download charge only, not the $37.50 SIM activation charge.

I hope Apple goes all out with dual eSIM support for the next iPhone. They should just kill of physical SIM.

Though it would be not this year iPhone but high likely it will be iPhone launching in 2020.

Is not a decision for Apple to make alone.

If not all telcos worldwide can support it and apple does it, it will also kill off Apple.

2020 sounds too near for such drastic change to take place

How do the SMS work? What if sms arrives for the secondary sim (not designated as the one for calls)? Would there be an alert? Or do I have to activate the secondary sim before I see it?
