Question:Q:iPhone 11 - Went to No Service "Phone Not Allowed"

Looks like no one’s replied in a while. To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question.


Yesterday I was using my Red iPhone 11 at work and was on WiFi so I didn't noticed it went offline. When I got into my car, I tried to call my girlfriend and it kept saying call failed. Swiping down to see the network status it says "No Service". I go into Settings>General>About>Network and it says Not Available, pressing it says "Phone Not Allowed". So I took the sim out and put it in my purple iPhone 11, works fine, all my missed SMS messages and MMS messages suddenly appear.

I then put the active Tmobile sim in the Red phone and No Service. Did a restart, reset network settings, toggle to 3G, nothing works. It's been running on 13.3.1 without a hitch until now so it's not a software update issue.

I checked to see if my IMEI was Blacklisted and it's not.

I followed all the trouble-shooting steps ( to fix this and nothing is working. I did a full Restore, skip through the new phone setup and not log into iCloud, set the network to 3G and still no service. It recognizes the Sim as Mint Mobile, but it won't connect to the network no matter what sim I put in. So now I'm back to using my old 5s. I looked through others with this issue ( and it seems they gave up, I couldn't find someone reporting a solution.

When I moved my Mint sim to the other iPhones, all my missed MMS's suddenly came in.

Would appreciate suggestions before taking it to the Apple store. I have a feeling it's either the antenna or one of the chips inside are going bad.

As the hosts have cleaned up your rant a little, I’ll offer this:

How did you check to see if your IMEI is blacklisted (which is what that symptom normally means)? There is only ONE way to check reliably. That is this link in the US—>CTIA Stolen Phone Checker

And the most obvious thing to do is to call your carrier and ask if there is a problem with your phone’s registration on their network.

Most hardware problems would result in a message that says “Searching…”, not “Phone not allowed”.

Yeah sorry about that, it was frustrating in my previous post about the MMS issue I'm having.

Lawrence, thanks for the followup, that is definitely more helpful than how it went in my previous post on here, and 6 hours on the phone with senior apple techs. The Level 10's were saying "carrier, carrier" but Apple confirmed it was NOT the carrier, it's something in my backup that will disable MMS on any iPhone that it's restored to.

I logged into Swappa and used a free Blacklist check. I also called Tmobile and they confirmed the IMEI is clean. Thanks for the link, I'll give that a try.

It goes from Searching to No Service within a few seconds. Switching from the Mint sim to an active Tmobile sim didn't make any difference.

Lawrence, that CTIA site also confirmed the phone is clean. It is strange how my phone went from working to No Service like it did.

Have you tried restoring the phone to factory settings, without restoring a backup?

Restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to factory settings - Apple Support

If the phone still has a problem then it’s clearly a hardware problem. If it works and you then restore a backup and the problem returns you have a corrupt backup.

Feb 19, 2020 8:09 AM

Feb 19, 2020 8:11 AM in response to Lawrence Finch In response to Lawrence Finch

On that line of thought, was the phone dropped or compromised recently?

Also, assuming there exists a known-good backup at hand, have you tried wiping it clean (Erase All Contents And Settings) and setting it up as a new phone to see if it works then?

Feb 19, 2020 8:11 AM

Feb 19, 2020 8:17 AM in response to Lawrence Finch In response to Lawrence Finch

Lawrence, yes, I did an iTunes Restore without backup, no change. Right now my phone is completed restored to factory settings and not logged into Apple. I'm afraid to do a Restore because of what happened to my iPhone 7 Plus on Verizon. It's a paid off phone, unlocked, used on a few different carriers. I put my Mint sim in it to confirm MMS works. I then applied my backup to it to confirm MMS stops working ( So I did an iTunes Restore and the message came up Sim Not Supported. I then tried the previous sims from the 3 different carriers that this phone was used on and now none of them work with this phone. I'm afraid of having this same thing happen to this iPhone 11.

Thanks again for your replies and working with me, you've been very helpful.

No, the phone was on my desk at work all day. Prior to that, it's always been in an Otterbox and hasn't been dropped on a hard surface, or exposed to water or excessive heat.

Complete iTunes restore didn't make any difference. Reset All Network Settings, Setting Cellular to 3G, toggling Airplane Mode on/off, etc.

I scheduled an appointment at Best Buy to look at it. Hopefully they can determine if it's a hardware issue or not.

Feb 19, 2020 8:30 AM in response to cooidude0 In response to cooidude0

If there is some sort of misconfiguration or corruption in the phone (and hence the backup) at the software level, restoring will only faithfully restore it back, hence the suggestion to start afresh just to do the test.

Let's say Best Buy is not held to high regards in these parts, based on known results. Maybe try at an Apple Store instead?

Feb 19, 2020 9:02 AM in response to cooidude0 In response to cooidude0

Are you using iPhone 11 for work, or for personal use? It is better to take Phone a real Apple Store, AASP like Best Buy, people having issues with them in this forum.

Feb 19, 2020 9:02 AM

Feb 19, 2020 10:14 AM in response to Courcoul In response to Courcoul

Courcoul, thanks for the heads up on Best Buy, I had hopes they might be able to do something, but sounds like I need to visit my local Apple Store.

Feb 19, 2020 12:13 PM in response to cooidude0 In response to cooidude0

Okay. My bad. I should have ask earlier, what is Mint, I never heard of it. It belongs to foreign country wireless carrier?

Feb 19, 2020 12:13 PM

Feb 20, 2020 12:46 PM in response to BORg529 In response to BORg529

It's a T-Mobile MVNO owned by actor Ryan Reynolds. , hard to beat their rates, but I'll probably switch to T-mobile or someone else in a few months.

I went to Best Buy and confirmed, they can only run a basic diagnostic on the phone, otherwise, they'd have to mail it out to be looked at. The guy I worked with was cool, he suggested to go to the Apple Store and not waste my time with them sending it out.

Mint Mobile or Allvoi: Discounted Carrier 2020 Comparison

If you're reading this, then you are trying to decide which carrier is best for you, your family or business. In this article, we will conduct another comparison of two trending MVNOs. In one hand, Mint Mobile and their charming fox with a line of 9 wireless plans, and on the other hand, Allvoi Communications or just Allvoi with a minimalistic design and a set of 4 wireless plans and unlimited internet.

Mint Mobile may be one of the newer phone companies with its millennial-targeted ads and game-changing plans, but is it really worth the hype? Before you go and check them out, Allvoi may be the Mint Mobile alternative that will suit all your needs!

In order to help the average statistical American make informed choices, let's consider tariff plans, their benefits and features, taxes and fees, telephones and the options for their purchase. And so Mint Mobile vs Allvoi, let's take a look.

Mint vs Allvoi General Plans Overview

$15/month $45
for 3 months total
$20/month $60
for 3 months total
$25/month $75
for 3 months total
$20/month $120
for 6 months total
$25/month $150
for 6 months total
$35/month $210
for 6 months total
$15/month $180
for 12 months total
$20/month $240
for 12 months total
$25/month $300
for 12 months total

It's really hard to make a choice when you have to decide from a numerous amount of options, causing stress and delay. Especially when you need to choose for yourself and the whole family - it becomes significantly harder and the process just takes much longer.

Mint Mobile technically has 9 plans to choose from, ranging from a 3-month plan, all the way up to a 12-month plan. All of these 3, 6 or 12 month plans are available only with 100% upfront payment - so if you don't have the money, you unfortunately can't get their plan. Additionally, each plan comes with either 3GB, 8GB or 12GB versions of 4G LTE or 5G. And rates get significantly higher when you choose over three-month plans.

At Allvoi, everything is laid out simply for you and the process is much easier. With only 4 plans to choose from and all features shown, it's easy to decide what's best for you and what's best for the family. Each plan comes with its own amount of 4G and 5G LTE data ranging up to unlimited data at some of the lowest rates in the market. Even better, you don't have to pay everything upfront. It's easier for you, and it's easier for your budget.

Why take so much time figuring out each and every plan on Mint Mobile when you can choose Allvoi and get the best plans with prices at a fraction of the cost. Check out our plans and get started on switching!

Marriage... already?!

When you check Mint Mobile's pricing, they give you a three month promotional pricing for being a new customer. The prices are attractive, especially its highest plan with 12 GB of 4G and 5G LTE at $25 for three months. However, a promotion isn't permanent, only temporary. When you really take a look at their plan, once the promotion ends, it's $45 for three month for their highest data plan. Of course it is much cheaper to go with their yearly 12 GB plan which is $25 a month, but then you're locked into a contract. And you can't pause payments so where's the benefit if you decide to not renew or change your plan?

Allvoi works differently. We know you'll love our service, but if you don't - you can easily stop service with us. There are no contracts whatsoever with any of our plans. You're not locked, no obligations, and no surprises.

Money-Back Policy and Benefits

Signing up for Mint Mobile allows you a 7-day Money-Back Guarantee. If you ever decide not to still go through with Mint Mobile within the 7-day activation period, you can submit a refund request form allowing you to get your money back. Simple, easy and trustworthy knowing that Mint Mobile is confident that you'll like their product.

However, Allvoi does it bigger and better. We're highly confident that you'll be truly satisfied. We have a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee. For a whole month, you get to try out our plans with unlimited data, talk & text, and more. With our reliable 4G and 5G LTE nationwide coverage, as well as perks such as HD video-streaming on us and free international calling, you'll realize why we're among the best in the market! And if you decide not to go through with us, you'll simply get all your money back through our own refund request. But why should you? All of these benefits at prices starting at the lowest prices in the market - don't bother searching for anything else.

Choose Allvoi and Switch from Mint Mobile

Now it's time for you to consider the best Mint Mobile alternative and move your carrier over to Allvoi. With so many great benefits when you sign up for Allvoi, it's no question that we're one of the best in the market! Mint Mobile may be the cuter of the two with their ads and mascot, but we're the best and most advanced in every other aspect. From free international calls to 5G Access to over 30 states and counting, unlike Mint Mobile - it's time for you to head over on our website and check out all the great things we offer/do.

Allvoi is your carrier with reliable service, affordable costs, friendly services and keeping you staying connected. Click our link here to learn how to switch and why Allvoi is the best carrier for you.

Mint Mobile: what is it, and is it worth it?

By Alex Whitelock

Here's everything you need to know about Mint Mobile

Mint Mobile is kind of like the new cool kid on the block when it comes to talking about cheap cell phone carriers. No doubt the service's fairly recent association with part-owner Ryan Reynolds has helped it gain some notoriety in the usually cut-and-dry world of cheap phone plans. If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, or are perhaps researching Mint Mobile for a potential switch, then this page is a fantastic starting point. We've summarised everything you need to know about this carrier in an easy-to-read 101 guide. 

Simply put, you don't need any prior knowledge of Mint Mobile to make use of this page. We're breaking down what Mint Mobile is exactly, how this company operates, and how much you'll be looking to pay per month - should you sign up. We're also including links to the free trial, information on Mint Mobile's coverage and network, and also a couple of worthy competitors to check out because Mint Mobile isn't the only cheap prepaid carrier in town right now...

Mint Mobile 101

In a nutshell: what is Mint Mobile?

  • Mint Mobile is a prepaid cellular provider
  • It operates under the larger T-Mobile network
  • With Mint Mobile plans, you pay upfront for a set amount of months
  • Three month, six month, and yearly plans are available
  • The longer the service plan, the cheaper the cost per month on average
  • There are no service contracts with Mint Mobile
  • Mint Mobile plans offer 5G, mobile hotspotting, and competitive data allowances
  • Yes, it's partly owned by Ryan Reynolds...

What we don’t like


Mint Mobile can offer super cheap unlimited deals, but here’s the dirty little secret about MVNOs like Mint Mobile—your data speeds can slow down at any time due to deprioritization. Here’s how it works: Mint Mobile uses T-Mobile’s network for its coverage and data speeds, but T-Mobile will prioritize its own customers over Mint Mobile’s.

Picture this: you (a Mint Mobile user) and a friend (a T-Mobile user) are at a basketball game. In theory, both of you should have bars because you’re on the same network. Except when you pull up Instagram, nothing will load, and your T-Mobile friend is having no issue uploading their story. Sadly, your data has been deprioritized.

With any MVNO, you’ll find that your data speeds can drop on a dime (especially in big crowds).

No family plans

Sadly, Mint Mobile doesn’t currently offer any family plans. Granted, the monthly price for unlimited data is already quite low, but it would be nice if we could get that price even lower with a family plan. If you want to get your whole family on a wireless plan, you might get a better deal with another provider.


Service mint no


yesterday evening I installed Linux Mint 13 Mate in a dual-boot option with Windows XP. Everything was fine (after I convinced the boot-manager to also recognize linux....). Then I installed all recommended updates and switched from DHCP to a static IP address (Menu -> Control Center -> Network).

Then I switched to PC off and today I switched in on again and during the boot of Linux the following messages appeared:
"configuring networking" and
"60 seconds more to configure networking"

After that linux started without any network connection. I typed which gave me the error message the NetworkManager is an unrecognized service.

Then I did this

Code: Select all

trying to reset any configuration. No success.

Then I reinstalled the network-manager by typing

Code: Select all

After rebooting, the system tray icon has vanished, and I have no connection at all.

This is the output of the command

Code: Select all

and of the command

Code: Select all

Any ideas?

How to Fix All No Service Problem in iPhone-2020
mint mobile data not working

Mint is one of such telecom providers that are basically using some other carriers’ services and towers to provide telecom services to their clients. Such network providers are known as MVNOs that is the abbreviation for Mobile Virtual Network Operators.

This allows the MVNOs to cut some costs and get services according to the users or clients they have on their network. Not only that, but you also get a chance to enjoy highly affordable telecom services with the MVNOs.

So, Mint being an MVNO uses the T-Mobile network and cellular towers and that means you will be getting the right coverage from your Mint connection, no matter where you are within the states. This also ensures better signal strength and voice quality and you will have to pay a lot lesser than you would normally have paid for some of the premium networks out there.

They are not only offering the voice calling and text messaging services, but you will also be getting the right mobile data packages to enjoy fast and stable internet on your mobile phones while on the go. If the mobile data for Mint is not working for you, here are a few things that you will need to take care of.

Mint Mobile Data Not Working

1) Check Settings

First things first, and you will need to ensure that your mobile phone or any other mobile device that you are using with Mint Sim Card has the right internet settings on it to make sure that mobile data can work on it without causing you any problems. Also, if you have recently installed some application that required permission to change the network settings, that might be the reason behind this problem and you will need to fix that up as well.

So, the best way would be to ensure that you are resetting the network settings and that is going to help you out perfectly with solving the problem. Once you are resetting the network settings to default, that will be the best thing to have Mint network settings that are required to make the mobile data work for you. If that doesn’t work, it would be better to restart your device once after resetting the network settings and you will be able to ensure that you can get the mobile data working for you in the right manner.

2) Get Rid of VPN

Another possibility that might cause your mobile data to not work for your device is that you might have some VPN enabled and that could be causing you to have all this trouble. In order to have the problem fixed for you, you will need to ensure that you are disabling the VPN and getting rid of that.

Once you do that, you will need to restart your device as well, and that is going to help you out perfectly to make Mobile Data work on your Mint connection without any more problems or issues at all.

3) Check Subscription

You also need to check on the subscription you have with Mint Mobile and make sure that you are allowed to use the Mobile Data on the Sim that you are using. This will help you ensure that you can enable the Mobile Data for your connection and that it is available for your network.

So, make sure that Mobile Data is active on your connection and that will help you out perfectly in order to make the Mobile data work on your Mint connection.

4) Contact Support

If nothing so far has worked out for you, there might be some other troubles that you could be facing and it would be better if you contact Mint Support Department and let them have a look at it. Mint has some of the best possible support enthusiasts who love to assist with all sorts of needs that you might be having.

So, you just have to give them a call and they will be able to diagnose the problem for you that is causing you to not being able to access the Mobile Data on your connection. Not only they will be diagnosing the problem that you are facing, but they will also be ensuring that you are getting the right solution for the issue at hand.
