The iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, dual SIM usability, and AT&T Next
How will purchasing the new iPhones (Xs, Xs Max, and Xr) through AT&T Next impact the usability of the dual SIM feature? Up until now, iPhones purchased through AT&T Next have been locked to the carrier until the payment plan runs its full duration and the phone is payed off, at which time the owner can submit to have their phone unlocked. Swapping SIM cards in order to use a different carrier wasn't an option until that happened.
Will the new phones be similarly carrier-locked in purchased through AT&T Next? If so, will that impact both SIM slots, or only the eSIM slot? Will customers who purchase their phones through AT&T Next be able to install SIM cards in the physical SIM card slot from other carriers and have service on their phones from both carriers while they still owe a balance on their AT&T Next financing plan?
