I was disappointed to find that the pixel 3a was unable to have both sims open at the same time. I mean the eSim and the regular sim. Will the pixel 4 have this ability?

EE doesn't support the Android esim and they are unlikely to support it until someone like Samsung gets involved, and incorporates the esim into their devices.

@ianwaddington Until it's released, it's hard to say, it's Google that are responsible for this, not EE. Whilst it's looking like it will support both SIMs at the same time, until it's released, who knows, and then it might be only in a future update.

Thanks for the information. Hard to believe that a company would make a
phone with eSIM and normal sim and not allow them to be open at the same
time. Oh well!!!

They kept this quiet. I stand corrected then. 👍🏼

what you are looking for is called Dual SIM Dual Standby or DSDS. From the reports, it looks like it's coming to Pixels in Android Q. Not sure what pixels will or will not get it though as you need 2 IMEI's to support 2 active SIM's in the standards. This means Pixel 3 probably wont support this and stick with Dual SIM sindle Standby mode that it has today. So you will have to toggle between SIMs via the menu.
Pixel 3a, and i would guess Pixel 4, will support DSDS.

Thanks. The Pixel 3a does not support DSDS and I am really hoping Pixel 4 will support it. Google must be losing mega sales by limiting their phones in such a way. I do know in most ccases the carriers dictate especially in the US. It's time Google said "screw you carriers" and make phones that the public want over and above the carriers.

Android Q isn't released yet and don't go by the public beta's as they limit some features. But Pixel 3a, if you check the box or in settings, has 2 IMEIs. This is only really so they can support DSDS. PIxel 3 only has 1. 🙂

@ianwaddington Did you stick with the Pixel? Apparently DSDS has now been implemented in Android 10 on the Pixel 3a. Is it now working? Be interesting to hear any comments.
