Bloomberg’s Gurman says he was “bitten” by a “nasty” iPhone and T-Mobile bug.
You may usually be familiar with physical SIM cards that can be inserted into the SIM slot of a phone to make calls, send text messages, and connect to Internet services. You can use a SIM card to connect your mobile phone to your mobile carrier. eSIM is a digital SIM that is connected to the motherboard of the phone and activated by calling the mobile operator. The first iPhone models to use eSIM were the 2018 iPhone XR and iPhone XS.
There are some workarounds that may help
“There’s a very nasty bug on the iPhone and @TMobile that randomly deactivates iMessage and FaceTime on the device’s phone number, and there’s no way to reactivate them,” Garman said in a tweet. The only thing that works for me. The solution is to get a new physical SIM card. It’s a very disappointing issue. “As far as he knows, this bug is causing havoc in iOS 15.4, iOS 15.5, and iOS 15.6 Beta 1. Said.
Obviously, I was exaggerating about the associated complexity, but this should work. Others have said that deactivating and reactivating eSIM worked like a charm, while others just activated the new eSIM. Another Twitter user explained what happened to her.
A T-Mobile representative says Apple couldn’t solve the problem
“Last week, the 13 Pro Max’s eSIM for T-Mobile was deactivated and I kept trying to reactivate it in the settings, but said that without the service, eSIM wouldn’t allow the call. New to T-Mobile. I had to reissue the eSIM After stupidly trying other things that didn’t work, such as resetting the network settings. None of them worked. “
So the Bloomberg writer didn’t personally go to T-Mobile directly, Apple.. why? He thought Apple wouldn’t be able to solve the problem. “I haven’t tried it yet, there’s no troubleshooting they provide,” he said. He wasn’t wrong.
This bug is ubiquitous outside the United States. If you can go back to the magical Twitter board (which now smells like musk), check out the following response: I was able to activate it, but it continued to load and eventually showed that it couldn’t be activated. I had to replace the SIM card and it worked. “
