I am thinking of purchasing an iphone XR for two reasons. first, our google pixel fails to do wifi calling, which we need because we live in the mountains. this is awful. does a non-Sprint locked iphone do wifi calling, or is this (or are other) features restricted to Sprint-locked iphones?
second, we often travel, so it would be very convenient to get a European SIM into the physical SIM slot. this would mean that the Sprint-locked iphone would have to use the eSIM slot for Sprint, and the phone would have to allow me to use a third-party service outside the US in its standard physical SIM slot.
Ideally, while in Europe, it would preferentially be using the non-Sprint service, but still respond to texts and calls on the primary Sprint service.
is this possible?
The iPhone XR supports the WiFi Calling service. When researching this, I didn't find anything that says it won't work with a BYOD version.
I have limited knowledge on how the phone and the extra SIM works, when traveling. I would recommend speaking with our Sprint World Wide department for more information on how the SIMs work while out of the country.
thanks. I just looked on the apple website, and it does not list sprint as providing eSims. the other big three do. when is eSim support for iPhones coming?
I apologize that I don't have a time for that utilization. My documents all say dual SIM will come in the future, but doesn't say when.
