Hi guys,

In order to make my iPhone XS Max dual-sim (i.e. having two numbers online at the same time), I decided to convert my Spark trio SIM card to an eSIM.

The process was pretty straight forward, I went to the Spark store at Westfield Albany:
Address: 2 Westfield Shopping Ctr, 219 Don Mckinnon Dr, Albany, Auckland 0632
Phone: 09-414 9771
They requested my EID number (we can get this EID number by going to the iPhone Settings -> General -> About -> EID (mine consists of 16 digit numbers))

After they registered my iPhone EID on their system, they converted my old trio SIM card to an eSIM, then printed me a generic QR code.


And this is how to add/remove eSIM mobile plan on iPhone XS Max, iOS v12.3:

I hope you find this useful, let me know if you have any question regarding Spark eSIM. Cheers 🍻
