This should mean that the watch eSIM is not 'locked' and should start working as long as the phone is on one of the Airtel or Jio approved plans.

I am planning visit a Airtel store in BLR to find out but they typically give idiotic responses to out-of-the-box questions.

Does anyone have a clue?
One of the online reviewers confirmed connectivity thru Airtel in watch brought abroad. Checkout channel called igyaan.

I think somebody in Apple heard you and these changes are likely to be implemented in iOS 12.

Looks like Apple's heard my prayers for 3rd party navigation app support in CarPlay ! Can't wait for the ios12 public beta. What could go wrong, eh ?

Now, most of the times, I have to go to Settings and manually connect to my saved network. This has been frustrating and I keep my mobile data ON most of the times to avoid this issue. Is there a solution for this?

I use an iPad Air 2 with 11.3 (upgraded to 11.3.1 yesterday) and I don't face this issue at all.

Thanks. I tried this option but the issue persists. My phone is on iOS 11.4. Anybody else facing this issue?

I faced the exact issue post 11.4 update. The moment the phone gets locked, the WiFi get disconnected and mobile data is active. All I did to solve the issue was to forget the WiFi network and add it again. Now, the phone does not get disconnected after being locked.

If this does not work, try resetting the Network Settings. That would wipe off all the saved WiFi details though.

Hi, although i am not an iphone user but i do regularly use my Ipod classic 6th gen. It had a battery issue and the same was repaired by irepair guys. Here is the link

https://www.irepair.in/

They are based out of bangalore and do a very good job. You can call them and ask about the issue. They are very responsive and also have a free pick up and drop from fedex.

PS - I am no way associated with Irepair, just a customer who had a positive experience.

Mod Note: Please quote ONLY the relevant bits of a post. Quoting a full, long post inconveniences our mobile readers.

I use an iPhone 8. An issue I've been facing more or less since I got the phone around November last year is that sometimes while on a call I can't hear the other person for about 10 seconds. This happens a couple of times every day. I don't know if the issue is with the phone or the network. When I took it to Apple care a few weeks ago after running diagnostics he said there doesn't seem to be an issue with the hardware and he reinstalled the software and asked me to try it out. I have continued to face the issue. I tried replacing the sim but it continues. I'm on Vodafone in Bengaluru so not sure if it's the network since the Vodafone guys said there are network issues due to integration with idea. Is anyone else facing this issue? Quite frustrating while on calls with clients. It could be that this issue happens while switching network bands is what I feel.

I think it is the network. Even I am facing the same issue and I am also on Vodafone. My wife also is experiencing poor network on her phone. Vodafone guys are saying it is because of their upcoming merger with Idea. You can try porting to some other operator but I guess all have poor network quality.

Hmm thanks. May I ask which phone you both are using. The reason is, I want to get it sorted within warranty if it is an issue with my handset.. I agree that all networks are the same. It is just that we feel that the grass is greener on the other side.

Used to happen on idea network with iPhone SE. But that problem seems to have disappeared lately. Haven't faced it for a few weeks now.

Just a Jugaad Idea!!

Check if the sim is mating properly with contacts by adding a small piece of paper between sim and sim tray, or try installing a new sim tray.

Great, let me try this as the last option, if they also could not do it then selling it will be the only option.

Tried both options before, but unfortunately it did not work.

I am right now in the US, so thought would go and check in a store here and see if I can get a better option for replacement. But since that is Indian bought phone, not sure if they would be able to help in anyway here, so its a try which I thought I would do.

Happy to confirm that a Apple Watch Series 3 (cellular+GPS) bought in Hong Kong is working seamlessly on Airtel. Setup took around 30 minutes and included a Watch update and creating an Airtel account.

Great !!! so you saved around 10K in the process. Any specific billing plan of Airtel already working with existing plan?
