Cross-post from r/ios — Can I have data on both lines with Dual SIM/eSIM?
I currently have an iPhone XS Max connected to AT&T in the US via the nano SIM. I’d like to add my business number to the eSIM with Verizon; I’m hoping this will give me dual data coverage in the event AT&T has crappy reception (which is frequent around my area). My question: can you have 2 data plans with the Dual SIMs, or can only one line have data? I’m a bit confused on this based on my research.
If I can only have data on one line, my plan is to move AT&T to my eSIM and then have a Verizon pre-paid SIM for just voice and text, no data.
I’m on the latest iOS: 12.3.1. I don’t plan on running any of the iOS 13 betas on this particular device.
