    you guys are so fucking dumb, esim does not equal sim lock. iphone 13 already support esim. If you want to swtich carries you simply get qr code to scan instead of physical sim. That is all to it. Esim is even better if you have like 15 sim cards as you can store them all on your device and then activate 2 you want to use. you are overacting again like with headphone jack

      I fail to see the issue. My old S7 Edge has a SIM/microSD tray and a headphone jack, yet it will still survive being chucked in the pool. Heck, the S5 had all of that plus a removable battery behind a pop-off back with a ribber gasket, and still survived the bottoms of pools. Are people wishing they could take their phones scuba diving, or is Apple just this trash at waterproofing?

    eSim sounds dumb as fuck. What does it have in place to ensure it's secure? Physical might be easy to physically steal but it doesn't have a million other different ways that makes it simple to steal. What exists to make it not easy as fuck for malware, spying apps, etc to just tale your cares? Fuck even just people tricking normalfags to just give it to them? Cryptofags are the prime example of what happens when they are expected to consider security. You have daily examples of people losing large amounts of money

    Fuck this garbage. Physical SIM is freedom. Phone broke / needs repairs? No problem, I can pop out the SIM and stick it in an old phone so I can take calls in the meantime. Traveling abroad? Again, no problem, just pop out one SIM and stick in another. The SIM card has always been an advantage GSM had over CDMA.

    And if you ever need to transfer back to a physical SIM, like to switch back even temporarily to an old or cheap phone, fuck you, go to the store and pay the fee to get a new SIM only to permanently destroy it again by transferring it to an eSIM when you go back to one of these eSIM only phones.
