I have two access points XCPA and IMS other than the normal ETISALAT on one specific sim, while the other sim showing only one as normal.

I tried to change the phone and restore them to default, but always this specific sim shows those XCPA and IMS on any other phone

    Hi @Reefo, welcome to our community.

    Help me understand your setup, you mention mobile access points and then mention phones.  Can you also please provide screenshots and suppress any sensitive information that may have on it?  Please also provide any other details of your wireless network so that I can obtain a better understanding of how it's set up.

    If it is happening on the one SIM only, you may need to contact your cell phone provider. Maybe that SIM has extra services setup, that the other one doesn't, or is on a different "plan"? Possible that one (SIM) has "hotspot" capability enabled, while the other one doesn't?

    IMS could stand for "IP Multimedia Subsystem". It appears to be a "standard" for routing cell phone data/services over IP networks.
    XCPA - are you sure it isn't XCAP? XCAP could mean "XML Configuration Access Protocol". It "
    is an application layer protocol that allows a client to read, write, and modify application configuration data stored in XML format on a server." (Wikipedia ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML_Configuration_Access_Protocol). Although I am not familiar with both IMS and XCAP, XCAP seems to be used with IMS.

    If both of those are showing, on the one SIM, that SIM may be able to act as a "gateway" or route that traffic/data (IMS & XCAP) in and out of it, especially if it is a "hotspot". However, that is just a guess.
