T-Mobile, Verizon eSIM support happening real soon

T-Mobile, Verizon eSIM support happening real soon

Apple’s support for dual SIM, dual standby (DSDS) on this year’s iPhone generation was a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it finally gave what some iPhone owners have been requesting for years. On the other than, its implementation is based on a normal, physical SIM and a digital eSIM. The latter requires carriers to support the feature and as of yesterday, only AT&T does in the US. That, however, is changing soon with both Verizon and T-Mobile following not far behind.

T-Mobile Money is the Un-carrier’s second stab at mobile banking [UPDATE]

But while it has a very slightly different name, it's a spiel we've actually heard before.

Smartphone prices are soaring higher and higher every year, sometimes with very little reason to. Some manufacturers try to steer the ship the other way but such is the unstoppable market trend. Ever the contrarian, “Un-carrier” T-Mobil insists you don’t really have to burn through your life savings to get a serviceable smartphone (while it does sell such wallet-burning models at the same time). You can, instead, just opt for one of T-Mobile’s two new REVVL 2 phones. That is if all you really wanted as a T-Mobile branded Android phone.

T-Mobile three-year installment plan is coming soon

T-Mobile three-year installment plan is coming soon

It has also become the standard period for warranties and software updates and support. T-Mobile, which always prides itself as the "Un-carrier" might be working to change that game soon. Based on its website, it might start to offer installment plans that will take you three years to pay off instead of just two.

Then again, you don’t have to be stuck with any carrier for that matter.
