I see that S21 ultra supports esim (mentioned in the FAQs). Does that mean I can use esim and physical SIM simultaneosuly and have two numbers for my device? I do not want to manually switch between esim and physical sim.

Because, if the S21 is like the S20, it does't support all U.S. radio bands, has a different processor, and does't have a US warranty.

@rsvatsavaiyou are now justified in waiting to make your purchase because the forums are starting to come alive with people complaining about the Samsung bait and switch I talked about before. Samsung has officially lied again and there is no dual sim functionality with the US variant of the Galaxy S21s. So that makes every phone that came out since the Galaxy S20 that they promised dual sim functionality and they have not delivered.

I asked Samsung Care Pro - tech support - and they said it does have eSIM at launch

Does Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G support eSIM? Yes, you can use an electronic SIM, known as eSIM, with Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. The eSIM allows you to activate a mobile network plan right on your phone, so you can switch data plans or add an overseas phone number without the physical Nano SIM.

doubt it, I was told the same thing when buying the Note 20 ultra, and now I'm stuck with a phone that will never have esim. don't trust what they tell you.

the phone does have the hardware capability BUT the firmware needs to allow its use. the phone does have the hardware capability - like the S20 - but the firmware upgrade to enable esim use is not guaranteed.

I just got the S21 ultra. I'm returning it for the same reason I returned the S20 note ultra before. It's not just a lie about esim, they waste our time. I also became an expert in packging and returning processes. Be honest Samsung.
