What Does Last Line no Longer Available Mean?
So, what does the last line no longer available mean? Do you want to call using your remaining line mean? The iPhone last line no longer available means you cannot use the SIM or line to call the number you want to dial or you choose another option and you have to use the remaining line to make the call.
When you cannot use the SIM to make a call it implies that the SIM is useless even when you have enough calling card on it and there is a network connection available in the area.
So, how do I fix the last line no longer available on iPhone 11 and clear the error that is coming up from the preferred iPhone line with or without the eSIM?
Here in this guide, you will learn what does the last line no longer available on iPhone 11 and other iPhones means and how to fix the issue of “make calls using the remaining line.”
Last Line no Longer Available iPhone 11?
While we cannot ascertain the reason behind this error on iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone Max, we attribute it to iOS 12.1 bug because we start to see the last line iPhone error after the iOS 12.1 update on iPhone.
So, when the iOS is upgraded to iOS12.12, it causes a problem for eSIM port while selecting which line to use on the device. Prior to this update, there is nothing like the last line error on the iPhone.
To some iPhone users, this error is not always as it occurs randomly after making a call.

Call Using Remaining Line on iPhone 11
When your iPhone pops “the last line no longer available” you either quit making the call or call using the remaining line.” This works for devices working for iPhone using nano-SIM and eSIM.
So when you attempt to make the call with your SIM on your iPhone 11 and it replies the last line no longer available using the remaining line, this might occur that you won’t be able to complete the current call. So, you would have to use the other line that is available.
Update(12/21/2020: It appears that in one you called prior to updating to iOS 12.1 has the iPhone last line no longer available error on display. Now, to fix; clear all recent/missed calls. This is most likely that when you upgraded to iOS 12.1 it causes conflict with eSIM portion thereby confusing your iPhone on which SIM or line to use despite no charges were made.
This works on iPhone 11 and other 2020 iPhone release and OS version. Just attempt the suggestion in the update and see if the “last line no longer available iPhone error is fixed.
I have tried on random iPhone and it works on the following iPhones.
- iPhone 12
- iPhone 12 Pro
- iPhone SE 2020
It also fixes the last line no longer available iOS 14 update.
