Wondering if there's any info on US eSim support on the Z Fold3 like they have on the S21 with One UI 4 Beta Android 12 update ?
I just bought an unlocked Z Fold3 SM-F926U1 after I heard that the One UI 4 Beta update enabled it on the S21 and was totally bummed out after i updated my ZF3 to find it completely missing ?
eSim is a must have feature for me and I would appreciate a heads up to know what the status is going forward so i can return while i still can. The phone is just sitting here its of no use to me without the feature
I don't know the reason why other markets get the same phone with esim function right away but US Markets tend to just get sim only. I think I would place blame on carriers not wanting to deal with registering extra imei for each phone launch. The physical imei and the esim imei2
I'm new to the Beta program how often does Samsung usually release these Beta updates are they usually weekly or more like monthly ?
Luckily even though the particular unlocked US version of the Fold 3 from Samsung I got does not come with 2 IMEI numbers on the box it does come with a 1 IMEI and 1 EID. Google says the EID is an Embedded Identity Document a serial number attached to a device that's used as a eSIM or built in sim 🙂
For S21, beta1 went three weeks, then about every two weeks for subsequents
beta3 was a few days late (usu released on Tue), because they had to do a Hotfix patch before US release. On beta4 now
Can you at least confirm that US eSim Support will come in the final release of Android 12 One UI 4 ?
I was told buy Samsung Support below quote
( I would like to inform you that device is perfectly compatible with the Esim but the feature is not available on the USA yet.
The Esim feature will get enabled with the update from Samsung.
Our developers are currently working on it rigorously, Samsung will release the update to get this feature enabled in the near future with up coming update. )
I hope your right and I have a feeling you are just can't comprehend why Samsung would enable it on there S21 and not there Big Time top of the line Fold
But on the other side of the coin I wouldn't put it past then to string people along waiting with statements like the above they've done it before on plenty of other phones when it comes to eSim support in the US
