Samsung is finally rolling out eSIM support to Galaxy phones in the US — here are the models so far

Although plenty of devices in the US technically have eSIMs, only Apple's iPhone and Google's Pixel series allow users to connect to networks using the digital cards included in their phones. Many of Samsung's recent flagships also have eSIMs built-in, but without the backing of US carriers, the feature has gone unused.

Originally set to be launched in 2020, we hadn't heard very much about it for some time. According to a new report, there's a good reason for that: The CCMI is dead.

T-Mobile has hit a new milestone in the war with spam calls and texts by establishing STIR/SHAKEN support with all of the major networks in the US. This will go a long way to stopping scammers from evading anti-spam and call blocking methods by falsifying caller ID information.
