iPhone XS/XS Max Two Numbers at Once

The iPhone XS, XR and XS Max in USDM sales have an eSIM functionality that will allow you to have multiple cellular numbers and plans on your iPhone.

You can have several eSIM cellular plans, and switch back and forth as appropriate, but have only one number and plan available at a time.

Or you can use one eSIM cellular plan, and have a second physical SIM cellular plan, with both plans and numbers active at the same time.

The A2104 (Hong Kong) version of the iPhone XS Max has two physical SIM which can both be active at the same time.

I'm curious...is anybody doing this with your KC1 or KC2?

If you are, how does the car handle having the multiple numbers active at the same time?

George - you always say you’re an old guy but let me say kudos for being at the forefront of understanding any of this stuff. That post very well could have been written in Spanish to me lol.

I was curious if this would happen.

Primary grabbed Band 2 while Secondary grabbed Band 12.

I thought that all the lines would use the same radio, but now I'm wondering just how complicated the new iPhones are on the inside.

Clearly, the purpose would be to have two different companies with different coverage, but the Xfinity Mobile (VZW) SIM isn't set up yet.

I forgot to come back and answer my question about what AcuraLink would show.

The car only shows the [P]rimary line's LTE signal, unless your turn it off and switch to another line for data.
