    You're right. I think I'm overthinking it. Just use WeChat instead of WhatsApp for China, though which I pretty much already do.

    Yeah, it's just a bug on the Verizon website. The Verizon mobile app doesn't have this bug. Also, there are places on the Verizon website where it doesn't show my model of phone on my line. It's...

    Oddly enough I bought a jetpack (add-on line to my family plan) and I got a big one-time discount with a ETF for disconnecting before two years. Basically a contract. But I've only seen these...

    Unfortunately that doesn't answer the question. That's a list of carriers that offer eSIM, not a list of carriers that will support roaming. I did see a few claims of people on T-Mobile eSIM...

    Roaming iPhone 11 Pro in China on Verizon eSIM

    Hey folks. I travel to China a couple of times per year on business for less than a week and just expense the $50-$80 of TravelPass fees back to work. The last two years were iPhone X, and it's all...

    I intend to get the 2019 iPhone and thus Dual/SIM for the first time. I'm on Verizon. My intent is to put my primary line (Verizon) on the eSIM so that the physical SIM slot is available for my...

    First, if you have a CC you should always set up autopayments of your minimum payment at the very least so you don't forget and go delinquent, so you'll live for a while. Second, I'm pretty sure you...

    I read somewhere that carriers like Verizon aren't ready for eSIM on the iPhone, but plan to be by around the end of 2018. This is why they still provision with physical SIM. So when they start...

    So when you leave LTE coverage and are in a CDMA only area, you can't use your phone? That doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense. We still need CDMA for fallback.

    We already know that. That has been covered. What is still unanswered is whether a phone bought on Verizon DPP unlocks after a day or two.

    If you've activated it on Verizon it has been a few days now. Can you check to see if it is now unlocked or if it's still locked? If you paid for the phone outright it would have been unlocked by...

    I don't doubt it. It seems like iPhone just sits at whatever connection it's on until you move to the point where it has to switch to another site at which time it'll switch back to LTE if...

    LOL. No, thanks. I have an Apple Watch LTE already for this purpose. I guess it's an option for non-iPhone users, though.

    Usually in remote areas or building with bad reception. I guess the lower bands are 1x/3G so you get that when out of range of LTE and that happens occasionally. Last weekend I was in a park that...

    Doesn't that depend on your data plan? I think 1080p requires an extra $10 per month on top of one that already allows 720p.

    I like the idea of at least test-driving another carrier without fully switching. I get barely any savings if I switch to T-Mobile at the expense of not having coverage in places I need it, so I'd...
