T-Mobile prepaid subscribers with the latest iPhones can now operate two different numbers on one device. But the catch is that T-Mobile is limiting eSIM support to prepaid users. This is really disappointing news for postpaid T-Mobile customers who have been patiently waiting for eSim support to roll out.
Through the company’s T-Mobile app, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR users can register an ‘eSIM’, which in turn frees the physical SIM slot for a secondary service plan.
Currently, T-Mobile is offering customers just three prepaid options:
- Unlimited text, 1000 minutes voice, and 2GB data for $30 per month.
- Unlimited text and voice, 10GB data for $40.
- Or get everything unlimited for $70.
The Verge says that T-Mobile says eSIM was designed with international visitors in mind, however, anyone with a compatible device (and iOS 12.1.1 or later) can buy one of these eSIM compatible plans.
T-Mobile follows behind AT&T and Verizon in integrating eSIM technology.
