Sim card selection

2020-02-02, 21:30 PM

I've selected sim 1 for text messages but it constantly switches over to sim 2 which is my work number. I keep sending texts from the wrong number by mistake which confuses the recipients and uses the extremely limited credit which I keep on that sim.

 

How can I stop the phone switching sims by itself?

Hi Roamer,

 

Thanks for posting! Before you send the text message, you should be able to see the SIM card option on the right side corner. Select the SIM card and send the message. There is no option for auto select SIM card for text messages. 

 

Regards,

Suman

In settings there is 'Preferred SIM for SMS messages' which I keep switching to SIM 1 but which reverts to SIM 2 eventually.

 

I know I can select the SIM for each text message and I go through all my conversations changing the option to SIM1 but why does it always change back to SIM 2 by default? It never used to.

There may be some old Data stuck in Ram. Try a non data destructive,"Soft Reset" by holding the Power button in until the phone reboots. This emulates taking the battery out and can clear glitches.

 

HTH :)
