Likewise, If you are unable to activate your new phone, you can try contacting the manufacturer or network carrier for assistance. 

Storage

Lack of backup

If you don’t have a backup of your data and you lose data during the upgrade process, it can be difficult to recover your information. To avoid this problem, it’s recommended to regularly back up your data to a computer or cloud storage. It’s also a good idea to back up your data before upgrading the phone.

You can also use third-party software to transfer data between phones.

Limited coverage

 Some areas in the UK may not have good coverage from certain carriers, and this may result in connectivity issues.

Incompatibility with phone software

 Some SD cards may have issues when used with specific phone software versions. To resolve this issue, you can check the compatibility of the SD card with your phone software version and also check for updates and ensure that both devices are running the latest version of their software.

Voicemail and Text SMS 

Difficulty setting up voicemail
