eSIM means that if you lose your iPhone, there's no SIM card to remove
You mean someone who took it?

The esim is prematurely remain on the phone. Nobody even can hacked the phone yet.
They might chop of the phone become like parts lol.
But the safer was all your data still remain the on main board as well.

Guys a few questions:

1. Does swapping a local iP sim tray with one from China’s make it physical dual sim ready?

2. If eSim is activated locally but is not supported in countries I’m travelling in, say Taiwan, means phone is rendered useless?

Thanks

1. It doesn’t work even if you swap in a dual SIM tray. The hardware is different.

The eSIM situation aren’t looking that good even in the US too.

Major US carriers don't support dual SIM at launch of iOS 12.1

Hi

I understand the new iPhone's comes with dual sim ( Esim + nano ), my question to Singtel is whether Esim can be activated and they replied not ready.

Anyone know anything about the current Esim facility by telco's for the new iPhones.
I feel e sim still in infancy stage.

What you mean by terminate esim? You telco line is just a profile which you can delete.

When you lost your phone then how you transfer sim? If you use esim maybe your telco can disable your previous esim and give you the new esim by email or something.

Telcos given you the credit card size of QR code card for you to scan and keep it for future use purpose.

The QR code can capture n put it on iCloud photo.

Once if your phone is missing right.
The number still remain on the phone.
But the phone permanently never switch on also can’t detect at all.

Missing the phone already, try to get the QR code for rescan into your new phone, for few step to setup then can work already.

I found that delete profile and add eSim to new phone, its quite easy than use physical sim.

Physical sim card, replace new one have to pay extra cost.
For eSim got the QR code can be use in multiple times.

(Just make sure that eSim can be use in the multi phones only.)

how to terminate the e sim? needs to reprogram the phone?
