What does ‘SOS only’ refer to on an iPhone? How can I get rid of it?

If ‘SOS’ or ‘SOS Only’ is visible on your iPhone’s status bar, the usual cellular service is unavailable. That means you can still make emergency calls to numbers like 911 or satellite alerts if you have an iPhone 14. You can use nearby Wi-Fi as well.

The point is to reach out to a place where there is a strong cellular network. You can walk, ride or drive towards that place. Once you reach that place, you can follow the following steps further:

  • Go to ‘Settings’> choose ‘Cellular,’ toggle it to off, wait for 10 seconds > turn it back on again
  • In case you are traveling, you can go to ‘Settings’> choose ‘Cellular’> further ‘Cellular Data options and ensure that data roaming is on (if you are not worried about data roaming fees)
  • If you use a physical SIM card, bring it out, check for damage, and place it back if everything is fine.


Now that you know how to turn off sos on iPhone 14, you will agree that it’s not difficult. All you have to do is ensure the internet connectivity is on your device, and the rest is easy. How was your experience? Tell us in the comments section.

I am Palak, born and brought up in Himachal Pradesh. An introvert by nature who loves writing more than speaking. I do it often to express myself, to entrain myself, and to feel meaningful. While enjoying this world of words I ended up being part of a published anthology 'Blooming skies' with my poem 'On the day of devastation'. I love this concept of written words living on a paper till the end of time, they give me a sense eternity.
