Not yet is the only answer we can give you.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Looks like we all have the answer now. Unfortunately, it's not from our beloved Telstra. https://www.optus.com.au/shop/support/answer/esim-for-iphone-what-you-need-to-know?requestType=Norma...

Looks like our beloved Telstra is not the first this year. eSIM for iPhone is now available from Optus. https://www.optus.com.au/shop/support/answer/esim-for-iphone-what-you-need-to-know?requestType=Norma...

Re: iPhone XS eSIM

Come on Telstra get with the program...stop trying to stifle competition... Optus have activated eSim capability on the Iphone... if you are the BEST as you state you are for Mobile networks then you should not be concerned about losing customers... Do the right thing and activate eSim on iphone.

Optus got there months ago.
How hard can it be to do a little bit of IT work to generate eSIM capability.
Embarrassingly late to the party Telstra

Re: iPhone XS eSIM

Any update on the release of esim, ask someone at store on Monday,  he response was when it is released Telstra will be the first, I told him unfortunately your not and won’t be the first, Optus had released esim for iPhone XS months ago.

Re: iPhone XS eSIM

I asked someone at Telstra store if Esim was available for the iPhone XS , she said no one in Australia has it. 26/06/19
I said Optus does and she was so shocked in disbelief! I showed her and she couldn’t believe it.
Is it time for someone to start a petition so we can have access to Esim on the iPhone XS

Re: iPhone XS eSIM

As of mid year 2019, only Optus offers esim accounts for dual “SIM Card” phones (one being a physical “SIM Card” and the other being an esim) in Australia. This is only on their post paid (not prepaid) accounts.
I would guess Telstra will follow this and implement esims for iPhones and others twin sim phones as customers begin to migrate

Re: iPhone XS eSIM

Crowd support is building and people like myself are looking to move to other Telcos who provide esim for mobiles eg OPTUS. You will start to lose loyal customers very soon if there capacity isn’t available soon.


What are you waiting for???? Why also have phones on your plans that have capacity we can use??!!

Re: iPhone XS eSIM

  Currently, only Samsung allows for dual sim. Both being nano sims, and if you want to use the second sim as an additional storage, you can. However, the telcos don’t want other telcos attached to their own phone plans. So don’t sell them.  I purchased my samsung note 9; direct from Samsung, after being an apple supporter since day one, and love that I can have my work and personal number in one phone,! The minute apple makes available a dual sim nano phone, I am keen to see how that turns out. And how he big players ie Telstra, Optus etc deal with it. Estimate is great for accessories but an actual nano sim should be used for dual sim phones.

Obviously it does with the Apple watch, through OneNumber" which i have in my Series 3, but the XS arrives tomorrow and I'll like to know more about the eSIM. 

I was told (and experienced) that the Watch eSIM doesn't work Overseas. If this is true for the iPhone too it will be pretty problematic. Of course, better enabled with the SIM slot for a local country data SIM. 

Or have I totally misunderstood the who eSIM thing...

Re: iPhone XS eSIM

My wife has an iPhone XR and has a Telstra work SIM card. She purchased the new  Optus eSIM for her private calls and this works! So, you don’t have to have a phone with physical dual SIMs and you don’t have to wait for Telstra doing what Optus already does!

eSIMS are great, one can simply add them when traveling and switch between them.
