    Once the status was "Duplicate" and closed, but after I commented, it change from "Duplicate" to "Active".

    Does that mean you'll re-investigate? Thank you.

    We have confirmed that this issue does not occur with Unity2021.3.37f1 and IAP 4.11.0. Thank you.

    I have a question because I need accurate information to report to my boss.

    It looks like the link in the answer from Unity is broken. Is the following correct?
    The above issues are Fixed in 2020.3.X, 2021.2.X, 2022.1.X.

    This issue is Found in
    2021.3.31f1, 2022.3.12f1, 2023.1.17f1, 2023.2.0b15, 2023.3.0a11 .

    It occurred in a newer version than Fixed, so it would be strange to mark it as resolved since it overlaps with the above issue. If the link is wrong, please let me know the correct link.

    By the way, the forum below provides information that it has been fixed in IAP 4.11.0.

    Additionally, the release notes for IAP 4.11.0 include the following.
    -Fixed AndroidJavaObject not being disposed causing a global reference table overflow in an edge case.

    Is this fix relevant?

    I still keep getting this error with around 6% of my user base, for almost 3 months. It would be great if this can be fixed

    Apple's Privacy Policy is set to go into effect on May 1st.

    We are releasing iOS and Android, we need to update to the latest Unity for iOS, but the latest version has this issue which causes problems with Android. (That is why we are currently using 2021.3.26f1).

    If this issue is not resolved, we will not be able to make the next release of our app.
    We would like you to fix this issue for the next LTS release around April 5th.

    This is the date we are considering to build the app with the new Unity, test it, and release it towards the beginning of May. I believe that not only we, but all Mobile Application Developers around the world will be on this timeline.

    If this is difficult, can you give us an estimated time of arrival?
    We are having a very difficult time with this issue in terms of scheduling our app release.

    Thank you in advance.

    It has been almost 6 months since this bug was registered. When will this bug be fixed?

    The forum post that triggered it is below. hw_pete seems to have provided a fix as well. .1485207/

    We need to upgrade our version of Unity to comply with Apple's Privacy Manifest. However, we cannot upgrade the version of Unity in the Android environment because this bug involving billing is still present.

    We would like to avoid having separate versions for iOS and Android.

    Best regards.
