    i would have liked a new well featured SE so I could carry a second, smaller personal phone to get around the profile problem.
    Agreed, I have an iPhone 8 as my main device and a Nokia dumbphone for my backup. When I'm in my work country the Nokia it has my home country SIM in it, when I'm travelling home or O/S I swap SIM's. I'd be much happier with one big and one small iPhone, but the SE just doesn't do it for me.

    For most people then, the best option will be to have a nano-SIM primary.



    I say the opposite. There's no way I'm getting off the plane in Myanmar and signing up with a carrier through e-SIM. I think it's more likely I'll have my U.S. carrier through an e-SIM so I can throw in any old nano-SIM I pick up along the road.

    (No way to get my cursor out of this quote block. Grrrr!)
    Yeah, that's the way I see myself using it too.  My question is, how will carrier locking work with the dual SIMs?  If I buy an AT&T phone and put my AT&T number on the eSIM, will I be able to use a local SIM for data overseas, or will the nano SIM slot be carrier-locked to AT&T as well?  I know I can just buy an unlocked phone and be free of AT&T's corporate shackles from the start, but some folks may prefer their financing and upgrade plans.

    Stupid Q, but where do I insert the second sim? The sim card piece can only take one :)

    The second SIM is an eSIM, no card to insert or remove (with the exception of the model for China where the single SIM tray can take a card on both sides).
