T-Mobile launched support for eSIM technology for the iPhone XS and iPhone XR back in December, but only for prepaid phone plans. T-Mobile has now expanded eSIM support to postpaid plans.
T-Mobile today announced expanded support for embedded SIM (eSIM), which is basically just a physical SIM card gone digital. Last year, the Un-carrier launched eSIM on prepaid plans, and starting August 28, customers can light up an eSIM with a T-Mobile postpaid plan — something Un-carrier customers have asked for – to open new ways of using an eSIM-equipped device by adding a second line on the same device.
The expanded eSIM support now allows T-Mobile customers to activate postpaid service on their iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or iPhone XR without a physical SIM card. This allows users to have two plans at once on their iPhone, such as both a work and personal phone number on the same device.
Customers with an eligible eSIM-capable smartphone can visit a T-Mobile store nationwide starting August 28. For more information, go here: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-40796.
