So thinking of getting a new iPhone, and wanted to see if I am thinking this through correctly.
I currently have two iPhones, a work one (iPhone 6) and a personal (iPhone 7).
My work phone is through Verizon, and my personal phone is through GoogleFi.
I want to keep both numbers, but try to use one phone if possible.
If I were able to get my work phone on an eSIM (because GoogleFi doesn’t support eSIM currently), and were able to get a new iPhone that supports the dual setup (eSIM and physical SIM) could I use both lines successfully.
What I would want to do is keep my personal GoogleFi line for just voice and texting, and use my work Verizon line for voice, texting and data. I can use plain SMS or iMessage for the work Verizon line I could care less about that one (to be honest I would probably turn off iMessage for my work line so that it doesn’t do any weirdness with my AppleID), but I’d really like to keep iMessage active on the GoogleFi line however without needing to use data from GoogleFi.
If I setup the phone to only use data from the Verizon eSIM, could I still receive iMessages from my GoogleFi line using the Verizon’s data connection (as if the GoogleFi line was connected to a wireless network) and NOT using data on the GoogleFi line?
Am I thinking that’s how it works correctly?
I have unlimited data through Verizon, but pay for data using GoogleFi – so if I can avoid data costs through my personal line I’d be able to keep that bill down to just the $20 +tax/fees, which would be amazing!
Thanks for any help.
