It’s not an iOS limitation I get 4G in Greece on my XS Max dual sim.
Just so I get this: on which line (meaning: on which SIM?) do you get 4G on your Xs Max Dual SIM when visiting Greece? I guess you have EE on eSIM, correct?
When I am in the UK, I get 4G on EE eSIM but only 3G on physical SIM (which happens to be a Greek SIM with 4G capability when roaming, this is tested).
When I am in Greece: I will know next Thursday...
My EE sim is eSim
Currently I’m in the US. My EE sim is on AT&T 4G and my 02 physical sim is on T-Mobile 4G
What I see right now is the following:
If I switch off 3G option, it goes to Edge.
Anyway, I will check with another sim and I hope this gets fixed once I go in Greece, maybe there has to be an update on carrier settings.
On my secondary I don’t have the enable 4G or 3G line but when I switch to it I get 4G
I do have the enable 4G option on my EE esim though.
For me I get 4G on both lines across the world (where 4G is available).
Does it definitely support 4G roaming aboard? Some carriers don’t do 4G roaming, like 3 for example (though it is changing as we speak).
Have you ever considered properly reading the post you are replying to before replying?
Yes, it does certainly support 4G roaming. As soon as I pop the SIM into an iPhone 8 Plus I get 4G. So it's not the carrier, I guess it has to update carrier settings on the phone, which will probably happen once I connect again in Greece.
Does anyone else use 2 sims and CarPlay? I seem to be having issues with my physical sim and CarPlay.
After about 30 seconds on a call on my physical EE sim, CarPlay crashes and cuts the call off, sometimes crashes completely and goes back to the cars infotainment system, other times it just goes back to CarPlay and cuts the call off. Always after about 30 seconds.
Anyone else getting this? My eSim doesn’t seem to have this issue?
I've not used the physical sim for long enough using CarPlay to relate but I'd say from the way the signal bars are positioned and how contacts and phone numbers don't have the line labels on them, I would think CarPlay is due an update to accommodate the dual sim setup soon.
I use CarPlay, was on a couple of calls for about 5 mins each today on the Physical SIM and worked fine.
I am on 12.1.1 Beta 3
I turned off Wi-fi calling and calls on nearby devices for that line, and it seems to be working fine now. Not sure why or how?
Another poor implementation Apple have made with dual sim...
I’m currently in Canada on a business trip. I’m from the UK.
Somebody who is not in my contacts called me on my personal line. I missed the call and wanted to call them back on my business line (so work pay the bill).
Impossible. You can only return the call on the line it was received on. Because the caller is not in my contacts I am unable to change the outgoing line.
Apple really have messed up this dial sim implementation.
Not ideal but copy number from recents, open keypad, paste number and change line.
Another messy workaround to get used to.
I was playing around with a OnePlus 6 recently, and I can see how you'd think it was messed up if you expected it to work like it does on the OnePlus 6.
For most of us in North America, for what most of us project that we would be doing with it, I think it'd be fine.
I'm going to search around to see if I see any information from Hong Kong and Singapore users complaining about what you're talking about.
It’s simple really. If you travel out of your country a lot and need to use both lines you’ll notice the limitations almost immediately.
Many Americans don’t leave the country so the current messy and frankly bonkers dual line implementation the iphone has won’t affect those users.
There are still tens of millions of us (not just 5 or 6 people) where this incarnation needs some serious attention.
Not sure if this is just a 'me-problem' but I'm not able to host a personal hotspot from my second (physical line).
Personal hotspot works fine from the primary (eSim) line, and if I take the physical sim out and insert into another device the hotspot works fine.
The connection just times out on the connecting device after trying to connect for a little while. I've tried the usuals, reboots, re-inserts etc.
Is anybody else able to host a personal hotspot on their second physical line?
I think that’s down to which line you’re using for data. You can only choose one of them for data and I’m guessing your eSim is set for data access.
This issue is after a change the mobile data to the physical SIM obviously so that I can use that data line for the tethering.
If I don't change that presumably I would still be using the eSIM data (which works fine for hotspot).
I had a similar issue the other week where after changing the default data SIM, I couldn't access any mobile data at all until after I rebooted the phone (not just personal hotspot).
With that said, subsequent switches of Data between the two SIMS has been trouble free.
Just tried. I can tether on both.
Hmm, seems like it's just my own issue then.
Thanks for your help anyways!
Tried it out on my Xs Max, running EE as an eSIM and Vodafone physical SIM, switching data to come from one one network and then the other. Personal hotspot works for both networks.
After a very shaky first go at trying to get eSIM working (EE inadvertently talked me into killing my connection entirely!), I'm pleased with the implementation. I've set my work contacts to come through on the Vodafone physical SIM, and my personal contacts on my EE eSIM. The two don't mix and I'm more than happy that I'm not going to accidentally call colleagues from my personal line. Only use Whatsapp for personal use, so no issue running two numbers. Only downside is iMessage not supporting both of my EE and Vodafone connections, but then work picks up the cost of colleagues sending me picture messages and vice-versa.
I think the iPhone implementation of dual sim is woefully inadequate.
I DO want to mix personal and business over both lines.
Glad it works well for you.
