I usually get the new iPhone from Apple NZ Online on day 1, even if I were to use Spark for this via online pre order I'd still need to go into store.

 

 

 

SIM Swapping as you say is wide open for fraud, hoping Spark can bring it to the App or an online portal verified by your login

 

 

 

Either way you will still need a second screen to scan the code and set up the device, either the old iPhone or a PC

I was a ex-Spark Retail Channel Employee, but I have recently purchased a XR and went into the store to have the SIM transfer over to ESIM.

 

 

I was the first one a the store to have it provisioned so it took a little while for the staff member to go through the instructions , but it works well and great!

 

 

I wonder how the uptake has been? if there is a surge of people transferring to ESIM that is been tracked, I left just before they launched.

Just switched to eSIM works a whole heap better then my dual sim Android phone. I have a grumble about the customer service and the failed provisioning (3hrs of no network connection) from the store but now it’s up and running I’m happy.

I'm looking forward to it being expanded to Skinny for the few times I'm out of 2degrees coverage and want to play Ingress or otherwise get data. The 7-day plan for $5 is convenient and will save me from having to carry and switch SIMs.
