Hello anyone have any updates as how will be able to have esim or second physical sim activated on 926w (Canada) bought direct from samsung ,all discussions seems to hit a dead end
I really need at least 2 sim on this phone and getting a international version is not an option anymore
Thanks for any input
Happy New Year !

If you are in the USA, its not enabled. Samsung has told several people that it will be, once One UI 4.0 hits. We shall see

I lost hope on esim support for the U1 variant. Paying 2k for a phone and not having the option made me jump to the pixel 6 pro so I only have to carry one phone. Still holding onto the fold though in case it comes later on. If so, id jump from the pixel back to my fold.

As European customer with Dual-SIM and eSIM Fold3 I'm not familiar, how Samsung and US carriers deliver the Fold3 in the States. According to your post, your fold is a single SIM device, is that right? Or do you have a carrier, that delivers eSIM support only?

In the USA it is one sim slot only. No dual sim, no Esim. On all carriers. Even unlocked
My like is a like for you but is actually a dislike for the content because it's STUPID that US does not use eSIM more widely.

Where eSIM's are used more than anything else in the US is for Watches. I have a Gear Watch 3 (my Watch 4 is BT only) and it ONLY comes in eSIM and my carrier (T-Mobile) didn't even blink and just activated it. So the SUPPORT IS THERE, just too lazy for widespread adoption. :(

Get rid of the SIM slot and one less place for dust/water to get in!!

Also all iphones and all Pixels have Esim active

Forcing people to buy two phones instead of one amounts to big $$$
Ummm... this is AMERICA!! Where very company looks harder at the Bottom Line rather than do what's good for the customers or people...

Hell, all you have to do is look at our Medical Practices (Hospitals, insurance and most of all, Big Pharma) and you can CLEARLY see it's all about The Great Chase for the All Mighty Dollar... :(

But by not offering dual-SIM you loose dollars, because people buy iPhones and Pixels ...
