Quectel EC25 AFX, issue with enabling sim hot plug

Hi,
We have Quectel EC25AFX(FW:EC25AFXGAR07A03M1G) in our box. We are unable to enable hot plug with AT commands.
We use Build root Linux 4.19.148 with QMI WWAN drivers and ModemManager& mmcli to talk to the device.
After inserting the sim to modem we have observed the following logs from ModemManager debug mode.

<<<<<< TLV:

We tried sending AT commands to the modem to enable the Hot-plug mode.

# mmcli -m 0 --command='AT+QSIMSTAT?'
response: '+QSIMSTAT: 1,0'
# mmcli -m 0 --command='AT+QSIMDET=?'
response: '+QSIMDET: (0,1),(0,1)'
# mmcli -m 0 --command='AT+QSIMDET=1,0'
response: ''

We still see the modem state as ‘failed’ from mmcli output.

  Status   |                   state: failed
           |           failed reason: sim-missing
           |             power state: on
           |          signal quality: 0% (cached)

Could someone please help to enable SIM hot swap?
