The dual SIM functionality of the new eSIM plus SIM combo in the new Apple iPhones is a terrific addition.

someone said about SIM hacking lately, they can hack your SIM and they can get your 2 factor authentication codes.

Is eSIM more or less secure?

Thanks

Well yeah, it’s a great feature to read about... I rather stick another SIM in there than a SDcard surrender

you don't get it? he would rather have a microSD card slot than a second SIM. I kind of agree with that. very few people need a second SIM, most people could use a microSD. I know some here do not need more storage on phones (you are one of them), but many do.

The thing is, I enjoyed reading about the UI implementation Apple chose for the double SIM feature, so much that I thought someone else may enjoy reading it too. I wish I could comment on its hackability, but alas, I can’t.
I wouldn’t have been interesting for me if this new slot was intended for, say, an SD card. I love the iCloud...

but more important,

There is no second SIM slot.

I didnt think i would have to add it but "in the USA"

Fact is apple will never include a slot for more storage. Want more, buy more. Or manage your storage better.

seriously, even in USA you could use the eSIM and then use the other slot space for a MicroSD card.

The capability for a second SIM is there, so if you play your eCards right, there’s a new empty slot... Unless one gets the Chinese version.

Why do the Chinese get dual SIMs? Don't tell me they don't have the technology to handle an eSIM.

So in China it goes from the SIM to the tower to the state security whereas here it goes from the eSIM to the tower to the phone company to state security. It seems the only difference is the phone company gets a cut $$ from state security.

That is probably correct, but I can buy a preloaded SIM card on the street in most of the cities there, from an old lady on the sidewalk, plain cash exchange, without having to register with anybody.....

Yes, but every single call/text made with that 'anonymous' SIM card will be GPS-tagged and time-stamped anyway...
