Samsung has still not fixed the SIM Card Manager reduced functionality.

In the rest of the world the SIM Card Manager has separate toggles to set the preferred SIM separately for Calls, Messages, and Mobile data. This supports the very common use case where people like me who use one SIM for data and the other SIM for outgoing calls and texts (both SIMs always work for incoming calls and texts.)

But in my S23 Ultra unlocked bought from Samsung website, there is a toggle to select the preferred SIM - but only one toggle, and that sets the same preferred SIM for Calls, Messages, and data. 

 

My wife's iphone has the option to set default for each separately. My friend bought S23 ultra from overseas and it has the option to set default for each one separately.  

This issue has been on thing for the last few years. I'm not sure what political reasons are there. I have a physical sim from my work and I have to use it for calls. For data I use my personal Esim. 

Very frustrating

Why in the world would you think this is political?
