    How does Pixel2 eSIM work? Does eSIM work with Cricket?

    Can an eSIM be activated on cricket?
    Will there be fees since you can't do it yourself by swapping SIM card?

    Is there anyway to know, until devices show up.

    the esim let's you connect to different cellular networks
    without needing a new sim card. apple watch 3 has an esim in it but can't currently be activated
    on prepaid networks only postpaid.

    So Pixel2 is postpaid only...?

    No Cricket, No Straightalk, no international prepay travel capability. Android continues it's crusade for uselessness?

    I think at this point, nobody knows since it was just introduced, but the few things I’ve seen show both an eSIM and a traditional nano SIM slot. I suspect this may be like the iPad Pros where the “embedded Apple SIM” (basically an eSIM) will work with a group of select carriers (both prepaid and postpaid) and the nano SIM slot will work as we’ve always expected.

    EDIT: Looks like it has both: http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/10...-esim-nanosim/

    Just read the ESIM at the moment is only useable with project FI. The phones do have a regular nano sim slot for other carriers.
