ESIM Rollout

Hi

Vodafone Ireland have recently started issuing ESims in ROI.  I think Three should follow suit soon, handsets such as iPhone only allow dual sim using one of these

According to the article https://www.independent.ie/business/technology/mobileesim-cards-are-coming-to-irish-phones-but-not-a... Three are due to introduce them in the "coming months" so hopefully it won't be too long

This is a topic that comes up every now and then. I can only confirm what @pizzahead77 said here that supporting ESIMs is under investigation and it's possible that I'll have more news in the future.

 

Stay tuned 😎

@dbrady @pizzahead77 Hi there, our devices team are working on eSIMS and I can now mark this as "accepted". This status doesn't mean that eSIM will be available soon. Keep on eye on the status. What you are looking for is "delivered" 👌

Ridiculous that Vodafone launched eSims without smartwatch support, big gap in the market in Ireland for 4G compatible watches. I know eSim is up for discussion already for Three but please consider launching them for smartwatch too!

@Dean8 Hi there and thanks for you idea! I've moved it over here as it's similar to @dbrady's idea and I'll be sure to pass on your suggestion about smartwatches to the team working on this! Speaking of which, have you seen our new Lifestyle Store yet? There are some really cool smart devices over there, be sure to check them out and keep an eye for new products in the future 😁

I've just bought a 4G Samsung Watch 4 in anticipation of esim support being rolled out soon. I've been a 3 customer for years but will definitely switch to the first network that introduces esim support. This is a huge potential market - it's only a matter of time before 4G smart watches are widespread and all networks will support them...whoever starts first will attract lots of switchers and sell lots of (4G smart watch) hardware - hope it's 3!

Yes, I recently switched jobs and want to change my personal sim to an eSim. 3 Uk have introduced eSim last year! Why are the Irish branch lagging so far behind. My contract is up next month and will probably switch to vodaphone as it seems they will start soon enough

When eSim comes out will we all be sent a qr code to add the plan to our phones?
