Telcos may be reluctant to use esim. Too easy to switch

If telcos don’t implement eSIM, Apple can easily remove their iPhone allocation.

i doubt it will be that soon, cos if it is soon, Singtel will non stop advertise and give us an ETA and use this chance to sell more iphones

Yup. Without esim support, I don’t think it is value for money to upgrade from X to XS.

Actually Singtel and starhub already have esim. They are mainly used for smart watch and under multi sim option.

yes both have. but they are not using multi sim function. its more like a mobile share.
your esim in your watches have number where calls and sms are forwarded to.

this is good if its for a small group of people.
but if its a large grp. they cant use this functionailty

I'm just saying they can implement esim on normal plan or prepaid easily if they want

Bring your question to Apple lor..

As far as I know, especially since the Apple Watch 3 cellular launch days, Apple is the one dictating how technology is deployed and when it should be deployed. If Apple announced it Singapore is being supported, telcos here will have to support eventually and that Apple should have determined if our telcos can support..

I'm just saying they can implement esim on normal plan or prepaid easily if they want
