iOS 13 & Dual Sim. The End of Roaming Charges
I am sure some of you know about the IMS feature of iOS 13 but it’s not getting as much exposure as on Reddit as it should.
Just came back from 2 week trip to Korea and I paid 0 roaming fees and enjoyed super fast data speed with local Korean sim while receiving all the phone calls, imessage and texts on my US Verizon line.
For those of you who are not familiar with IMS on iOS 13, it pretty much creates wifi calling over cellular using the other sim.
So before going to Korea, I had converted my Verizon line to esim and turned off roaming. Once I landed in Korea, I picked up a 15 day unlimited data and calling sim for 35 dollars and popped it into the physical sim slot.
Within few minutes all of my texts and calls(mostly spam) from the Verizon line started coming in. I was also able to call people back home using my Verizon number and incurred 0 charges.
So those of you with iPhone Xr, Xs and above, now you can enjoy foreign sim card without having to lose access to your main line.
And thank you Apple for bringing this game changing dual sim tech!
