    supposedly the Big3 all support eSIM. Good luck finding someone in tech support who knows how to do it.

    I thought Telus only supported eSIM for Apple watches. I don't recall seeing anything regarding phones or even tablets.

    When eSIM was first announced for the iPhone I thought all the carriers would drag their heels on it because it would eat into their ridiculous data profits - it's way cheaper to use one of the big 3 for voice/SMS and Freedom for data - but now that eSIM is supported by Bell/Rogers AND all their sub-brands (even Lucky Mobile!) I'm starting to wonder what Telus is holding out for. How are they the only carrier that doesn't support this?

    Well, TELUS and all their sub-brands don’t support Rich Communication Services (RCS) either.
    TELUS: Unlimited Canada Talk & Text, 15+10 GB Data
    Koodo: Unlimited Canada Talk, World Text, 8+9 GB Data
    AT&T: Unlimited talk & text in and between the U.S., Canada, & Mexico, 8+17 GB data

    Yep, TELUS said back in October they would be supporting RCS soon. Today's status: "Status: In progress" LOL

    When I text my girlfriend from TELUS to her Rogers Samsung Galaxy S5, it's just plain text messaging. But when I text her from "lowly" Chatr, we both have RCS active!

    Grrr!
