Missing Dual SIM settings for FP3+ /e/OS

Hi there,

I don’t find some of the necessary settings for Dual SIM use on my FP3+.

  1. How can I deactivate SIM1 or SIM2 on my FP3+, /e/OS version? I don’t find any other solution than removing the respective SIM card, but I can’t believe that there is no other solution… If there is not, Dual SIM for /e/OS doens’t make any sense for a combined professional and private Fairphone.

  2. How can I select a different ringtone globally for calls via SIM2?

  3. How can I select and save the preferred SIM per contact?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Best wishes

Hi there! I would be glad if I could figure out why the problem persists on my FP3+ using Android 10 and the current /e/OS version. I searched a lot and didn’t find the solution yet.

As I’m not sure if this is a FP3+ related issue or related only to /e/OS, I have only posted it in the e Foundation Community Forum.

If you have any ideas, please let me know. Thank you!!

This is most likely e/OS related, on my FP3 with FPOS Android 10, I can deactivate a SIM.
However I know this issue from my FP2 running Lineage OS.

However you cannot select different ringtones irrespective of which OS is used.

I also think its not possible to save a contact per SIM/phone number , but you would have to set the call options to “always ask which SIM to use”

Thank you. I already found out that I can’t select a ringtone per SIM, even with other OS versions. However, there are versions of /e/OS where I can select the preferred SIM per contact and deactivate a SIM. I’m still trying to find out why older versions of /e/OS have the respective options, other OS versions running with Android 10 have it as well - but my pretty new FP3+ does not have these options. Something like a table showing all different OS versions with all options that are available or not available would be perfect. But something like that doesn’t seem to exist yet.

Hi, same problem here! we just updated OS on my fp3 to Lineage 19, and now I’m not able to deactive the sim cards any more, except if I remove them. With the older OS version, I could simply switch them on or off individually.
One card is my main card, the other I use very rarely, so I don’t want it to be active all the time - after all, It’s a tracker! And also, if I remove it and need it, well, I won’t have it in my pocket but at home.
Any suggestions if there is a way to solve this problem?
Thank you!

With LOS thats not possible since a longer time already so no I think with LOS there is no solution.
