Disabling iMessage is affecting some iPhone users

Another solution flagged to me by some is removing your eSIM account from the iPhone and setting that up again. But that’s complex for most people and shouldn’t need to ever to be done. Not being able to send and receive texts is obviously not ideal. Not “it just works.” — Mark Gurman (@markgurman) May 19, 2022

Some iPhone users are experiencing iMessage deactivation issues; the problem appears to be impacting T-Mobile iPhone subscribers. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman first reported the problem on Twitter, and you can read more about it here. There’s a horrible iPhone and @TMobile problem that causes iMessage and FaceTime for a device’s phone number to deactivate at random, with no means to restart it. Getting a new physical SIM card was the only method that worked for me. This is a huge disappointment.


  • It is not clear as yet when this issue may be fixed, the only solution appears to be to use a physical SIM for your device instead of an e-Sim. We presume that this is something that Apple should fix in a future software update, although it is not clear when this will happen. Welcome back to Next-Gen Console Watch, where we keep you up to date on all the latest news and speculations about the PlayStation 5, Xbox One X, and Xbox One S. Max Scoville takes over for Daemon Hatfield this week, and he’s joined by Ryan McCaffrey, presenter of IGN’s Xbox podcast Unlocked, and Brian Altano, writer and broadcaster extraordinaire. This week, we’re comparing Microsoft and Sony’s game subscription offerings, as well as their respective methods. We’ll also look at Take-and Two’s EA’s impending release schedules (spoiler alert: there may be a lot of titles we’ve previously played). We also discuss the results of last week’s poll, in which we asked you who you’d play as in the forthcoming Gotham Knights.
