On 2Degrees in Christchurch. Recently moved from iPhone 7 (never any issues) > iPhone 11 Pro (having intermittent issues) although this may be a red herring.


I sometimes get decent 4G signal as per bars (and in areas I have used before e.g. central city / residential, not the middle of no-where) but data does not work. No internet, no messages over data etc. Call do work fine. 


Toggling aeroplane mode makes no difference.


I do not have a spare phone to try but the handset otherwise works 100% (including in the same locations with issues at other times).


Is there anything I can try or is very frustrating as I miss messages etc as they don't get delivered, but if I look at the phone everything looks fine.


I have checked the APN and it is correct, and the majority of the time 4G works well and as expected. Just sometimes not at all....


Any help appreciated.

I’ve had similar with 2degrees / iPhone X, but I noticed it when I travelling between Invercargill-Dunedin

Would show 3+ bars and 3G but wouldn’t get any data. Sometimes the data wouldn’t work upto an hour later even after I got home until it randomly would start again when it wanted.

I tried to pinpoint it and get more information as I travelled so I could pass it on but then lockdown happened

I still have this issue. I have reset network settings on iPhone but still getting this issue. 


Next step is a new SIM card?

@phrozenpenguin no way this could be SIM card related

I was also sceptical.


Visited 2Degrees store. Salesperson has same phone and same issue, said it is "kind of annoying". Which is a understatement!


I have just done the 13.5.1 and will hope this fixes things...only other thing I can think of is a full OS restore?
