After a long wait, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series is finally receiving eSIM support on Verizon in the United States. The support is available for both Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. It is the latest software update that enables the functionality and makes Verizon the second carrier after T-Mobile to offer the support.
The update essentially makes Galaxy Note 20 a dual-SIM smartphone. It will allow users to insert a physical SIM card of their preferred carrier and enable an eSIM from either Verizon or T-Mobile. This is beneficial in various situations, especially when you want to use different numbers for personal and professional purposes.
You can check for the update by visiting Settings > System updates > Check for system updates if your device is not showing the alert automatically. Once the update is installed and you have got your eSIM enabled, you will be able to manage both through SIM card manager settings. It is important to note that while both SIMs can be used for making calls and sending/receiving texts, only one can be used for accessing cellular data at one time.
