***Update - 13th Feb 2023***
So far so good. Turning dial assist off and back on again and turning the mobile on and off and checking the language setting seems so far to have fixed the issue. (iPhone 12pro new with virgin sim brand new from around Oct 2022. New customer but had it working in ip11 with Sim app fix)
Yes having dial assist off did cause some issues with +44 and non +44 format numbers but adding the number into a know contact as an extra number sorted that. I even turned dial assist back on and its ok. (Fingers crossed, touch wood etc)
I am starting to wonder that this occurred since moving to a new device and the Sim automatically moved roaming to auto from National. Previously manually moving it has fixed the issue. But now Virgin back end engineers have now removed Sim applications because they are not needed and cause more issues with people going abroad in manual settings rather than auto. I am guessing that it’s been removed as yes they are moving networks but also that the issue is almost fixed anyway with some intervention from the user.
I suppose the big test will be if I go on holiday in the summer. By then hopefully we will be a fully O2?!
Anyway. Let’s hope I haven’t talked this up today. But so far so good.
Wouldn’t it be good if Virgin released a statement saying that they have removed Sims Applications as this issue is fixed so this ‘manual Sim Applications change in Uk’ is no longer needed. If you have issues simply turn dial assist on and off and restart your mobile?
They won’t because it may implement liability and they may have lots of claims for loss of signal and refunds.
Let’s hope this one has been put to bed. As they say. Even if it pops up again hopefully a quick on and off will sort it.
Just need to migrate now as soon as possible.
any more updates I will post.
