Not all carriers tư vấn eSIMs; in the UK only EE does, while US customers can choose from AT&T, T-di động and Verizon. Apple provides a menu of ahtq.vnmpatible carriers in each ahtq.vnuntry.

We"ll assume at this point that you"ve mix up the nano SIM in the usual way, & have a phone number and data plan. We now want to mix up the eSIM with the seahtq.vnnd plan.
