UE does not connect data when moving from 2G->3G
I am using separate MSC and SGSN for each RAN, osmo-sgsn handles UTRAN->GERAN switching just fine, sending not attached command and causing the phone to reattach.
But when phones move from GERAN to UTRAN only some phones connect to the data network properly, while some are stuck in Activate PDP Context requests

I think that's not really as supported configuration. We don't implement any
inter-SGSN signaling. So the assumption for now is that there is only one OmsoSGSN
in a network. Anything beyond that is moving outside "known territory" for now.

I can see that, but even if inter-SGSN signalling is not implemented, it would still be nice to handle UEs from unknown SGSNs gracefully as it already does in GERAN.
I am looking at 3GPP TS 24.008 § 220.127.116.11 and osmo-sgsn seems to be doing its job but I am unsure why the UE doesn't want to send another service request.
