    Hello everybody!

    Recently, I'm missing the small double arrow as well as the network type indicator next to the signal bar. What could be causing this? See pictures for clarification. Mobile data is always turned on, and I'm running OxygenOS 10.3.7 never rooted.
    Thanks for any help!

    The next thing I would try would be to physically swap the 2 Sims around to see if your Yallo SIM behaves as it should in the other slot.

    If it works as it should with the Sims swapped over then great. If not then it would point to there being a problem with the Yallo SIM card itself.

    Not sure exactly what it all means (not my strongest point of knowledge), but I had the exact same issue a few months after purchasing my 6T. For some reason physically changing the 2 Sims over solved it, and I've not had any issues since with either SIM.

    Thank you for your help! Unfortunately, that's not what I meant. This setting gives me KB/s readings, but what used to be there was just a tiny up/down/network type indicator as part of the signal graph.

    EDIT: and also in your own screenshot. that's what I'm missing

    Does it remain like this if you switch the data to your other SIM that's currently inactive?

    Thank you so much for your help! Strange I didn't think of this myself, I was probably too sure it was a software problem. So first, I removed my second SIM (since I rarely use it) and wiped the back of the yallo one clean (had some fingerprints on it from the last insertion). On power up: TADA, it works again. Then I tried reinserting the second SIM again: still working. So I believe it was caused by oxidation on the SIM contacts caused by fingerprint oils, and you were completely right! Now I'm very curious to see if this also improved network stability, as I found it to be decreasing lately.
    Again, thank you so much for your help, and "CLEAN YA SIM CARDS, FOLKS!"
