Public Mobile doesn't support e-SIMs. (As of now... they might get around to it eventually or, by the glacial pace improvements trickle down from Telus and Koodo, it may never happen.)

@allardljosh  If eSIM is a requirement for you then maybe Lucky would be your best choice because I don't see PM adopting anytime soon.

Using e-SIM on Telus is not the panacea.  They want $20 to generate a QR code.  e-SIMs are not transferable between phones.  Nice cash grab.

What is the e SIM benefit? Two SIMs on a single SIM phone?

Same benefit as sealed batteries in phones.

Re: Tutorial: enabling eSIM on Public Mobile

No benefit then. So phones are coming that can't take a conventional SIM? Won't PM have to offer eSIM soon then? Or am I not understanding correctly?

Re: Tutorial: enabling eSIM on Public Mobile

New phones instead of two sim slots offer one sim and one eSIM to get customers  to  buy into eSim. Once that happens then eSIM becomes the only option. (Sad day for the consumer).
