Re: Swisscom Dual Sim/eSim

In the end, I changed my Salt Abo to the cheapest one and set that to be the primary number on the physical SIM which is used for voice calls, iMessage etc.
For the eSim, I moved an old prepay number to Swisscom to qualify for their special offer of half price for inMobile Go and the watch is linked to that Abo. (The offer runs until the end of May.)
What I wasn't clear on beforehand was that the Sims are independent so as long as the iPhone is unlocked, the physical Sim can be from wherever you like.
This feels like a game changer as transferring numbers between providers can be a gamble and I've never wanted to give up the number I've had for a number of years.
Now there is the flexibility to run the primary number on a cheap deal while shopping around for the best offer for data on the other sim.
