I wonder how many VDNZ customers would switch if Spark or 2D confirm plans to support eSIM...

That would be our business (and also household), so long as they supported the Samsung eSIM models as well, e.g. the Gear S3 watch and successors.

Don’t blame Apple, it’s not sold here because Vodafone NZ is late to market offering eSIM as Australia already has. Make eSIM available and Apple will release watch straight away it already supports NZ network frequencies.

Sick of these bull**bleep** responses from Vodafone

Hi, if this was so close to be released why has it been pushed back to next year I'm going to have to jump ship when I really don't want to - but I need dual sim as I'm to precious to carry around two phones work and home.

After this many years? Miles too late; we're gone. Extraordinarily bad faith messaging and action by Vodafone on this matter - just review the thread.

e-Sim was supported, among other products, by Samsung Gear S3 LTE released in 2016. At release it had carrier support in many countries, particularly Korea, Japan, the US...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Gear_S3 

 

So you can "have me know" anything you like: Vodafone - in spite of many promises made here - is currently heading for five years late, and counting.

 

In technology terms, that's a couple of lifetimes.
