Bloomberg’s Gurman says he has been “bitten” by a “bad” iPhone and T-Mobile bug
You may be familiar with the physical SIM card that you normally insert into the phone’s SIM slot so that it can make phone calls, send text messages and connect to internet services. The SIM card allows your phone to connect to your mobile carrier. An eSIM is a digital SIM that is connected to the phone’s motherboard and activated by calling your mobile carrier. The first iPhone models to use an eSIM were 2018’s iPhone XR and iPhone XS.
There are a few solutions that can help
Gurman spread his complaint in a tweet that read: “There is a very ugly iPhone and @TMobile error where iMessage and FaceTime for a device’s phone number are accidentally disabled and there is no way to reactivate it. The only solution that worked for me, getting a new physical SIM card is an extremely disappointing problem. ” Gurman said that as far as he can see, the bug created chaos on iOS 15.4, iOS 15.5 and iOS 15.6 beta 1.
Obviously, we exaggerated in terms of complexity, but it should work. Others said disabling eSIM and re-enabling it seemed like a charm, while others just enabled a new eSIM. Another Twitter user explained what happened to him.
T-Mobile representatives say Apple could not solve the problem
“Last week, my eSIM for T-Mobile on my 13 Pro Max disabled itself in the middle of the day itself and tried in the settings to re-enable but said no service and eSIM said the phone is not allowed. Had to get T-Mobile to rebroadcast new eSIM after stupidly trying other things that did not work, including wanting me to reset network settings. None of them worked. “
So the Bloomberg writer pointed out that he personally went straight to T-Mobile instead Apple. Why? Because he assumed that Apple would not be able to solve the problem. He said, “There is no troubleshooting they would offer that I have not already tried.” He was not mistaken.
This error is everywhere, even outside the United States. If we can return to the magical Twitter board (which these days smells of Musk), check out this answer: “This happened to me in India with Airtel. I did all sorts of things to activate it, but it kept on with loading and eventually showed that it could not be activated. Had to change the sim card and it worked! “
