Hi,

 

So, I’ve recently changed the SIM in my iPhone 11 to an ESIM and put my work SIM in to the now vacant slot, so I can just carry the one phone around with me. 

Works great for calls and it’s so easy to choose which line to use when making an outgoing call, however there doesn’t seem to be any way to do the same when sending SMS. I know it can be done for Android but unless I’m missing something, it’s not possible to do this on the iPhone? Or am I missing something?

 

I don’t want to send text messages to work contacts from my personal number and v.v.

 

Any ideas?

The bad news is you have to start the process from the contacts app and select message, and then you can choose which line to use to send the SMS, such a faff

 

Have a look here

 

Using Dual SIM with an eSIM – Apple Support (UK)

Current Phone: Motorola Razr 5g
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World
