eSIM - Travelling

The magic phrase:

 

"The eSIM capability in the iPhone allows you to use two phone numbers on the same phone at the same time, provided you have two active Postpaid Mobile plans."

 

At: what you need to know has me bothered.

 

When I travel, with my owned outright iPhone, I happily swap local and home SIM's depending on what I'm doing.

 

The ability to have Optus on the eSIM and a local SIM on the nanoSIM slot is my hope/expectation.

 

Is that possible?

 

If not is it to do with the phone being network locked - is it still 1999?

 

If it's an Optus thing and I'm back to buying from Apple can I still get an Optus eSIM for my existing postpaid account?

 

Indeed domestically in an Optus deadzone slipping in another network pre-paid SIM to ensure coverage sounds like a good idea - or does it?

Re: eSIM - Travelling

You only need a single Post Paid Optus service to use esim, you dont have to buy 2 plans from Optus.

 

Works perfectly well with the Optus service on the esima nd another carrier either in Aus or overseas in the nano sim slot.
