Its been long since Maxis have eSIM available. but only for Huawei watch users bangwall.gif bangwall.gif bangwall.gif

i don't understand why Maxis wont want to produce more eSIM for user to change. Well its a QR code with based on a set of configuration that allow the phone to store carrier info right. i don't think its that hard for them to produce a card with QR code vs a Card with precut physical sim. blink.gif

Anyway, anyone who already using eSIM ? those who trick maxis for supplying eSIM for huawei watch tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif Joking.....

I'm using two phone now, and its a problem for separate number. i wish i could get eSIM from maxis then insert my other number with physical sim

I'm curious too. But I think the AW4 with cellular is not being sold locally. Unless somebody got one from the US, let us know if it works.

It might probably works. I presume it is the same technology. They do not list it probably because the LTE are not officially available in MY.

Still prefer actual physical SIM. Easier to replace when device kaput or stolen.

It works the same if the device stolen, you still need to ask for the replacement. I find physical SIM have higher chance of misplacement. For example I go travel and have to eject the SIM to put in a traveler SIM, and often the original SIM gone missing.

When we have eSIM, we kept the physical SIM tray free for travel SIM.

but but but... the esim come with a qr code that you can store at home.
physical sim if phone stolen need to go service centre claim new card again wor.
physical sim if no precut size need to bring the sim card go shop to trim the size.

aren't esim better ? confused.gif
stolen phone can got password lock. thief cant open, buy new phone scan the QR code can already.
esim can transfer authorized other device like watch to use internet (in the future la i mean)

quite good what. just that need to go queue to receive the QR code vmad.gif

Physical SIM now can get replacement via kiosks. DiGi and Maxis have. No need to queue. Plus, SIM cards can use on any phones while eSIM only on eSIM compatible phones.
