  • Publication number: 20220141649
    Abstract: A mobile terminal includes a communication device to communicate with an external entity, a storage device to store an identifier, and a processing device. The processing device activates a communication profile, transmits a notification relating to the activation to an external entity, and stores an identifier of the activation in the storage device. The processing device further receives a deactivation request and an identifier from the external entity and deactivates the communication profile if the received identifier corresponds to the stored identifier. The identifier can be determined by the mobile terminal and transmitted from the mobile terminal to the external entity. The identifier can also be determined by the external entity and transmitted to the mobile terminal.
