iPhone Xs esim support

So will Telstra support esim?

I know this was asked prior to release. But now that the iphone has been released and apple have released the update to use it,
Will Telstra now support it?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

There has still been no announcement. I have seen on social media the staff had implied that it was something they were working on it. The comment was along the lines of once we have the details of our official announcement we will make sure we update our customers.

Hi @G-unit,


Last year we were one of the first Australian telcos to introduce eSIM technology for connected smart watches and we will introduce eSIM support for smartphones in the future as customer demand builds.

Telstra told me that theyre not supporting eSims for iphones... but no problem... I used a GigSky eSim prepaid for international data...Quite cheap too... it only took me a few minutes to set up on my iphone XS Max. I keep my Telstra nano sim active for voice and text overseas and use GigSky for data and VOIP calls. It works worldwide.

+1 to the demand for this - please please add eSIM support now that iOS 12.1 allows it!
