[OPEN] [GF] Removing quirk - Sim behaves as still there

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Deutsch
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? PC 1.47.51.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Every big expansion pack, and Sims Vampires
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? get the smartphone quirk as a "rising star" and then remove it with the potion.
What happens when the bug occurs? I basically removed the quirk (dont know if you call it like that in english, in the german version it's a "Marotte") where you're always on your smartphone, and my Sim still gets onto it like every now and then. So I guess I technically removed the quirk but somehow it's still there.
What do you expect to see? I don't want to have my sim go onto his smartphone while doing tasks and stuff. He never did that before he had that damn quirk.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I recorded the issue. Maybe you can make any use of it.

I'm having problems removing quirks too; for me it's Refined Palate. I've used the potion available in the rewards store. It seems to work and the quirk disappears, but my sim still gets uncomfortable due to "offensive food".

Seems this is the same as we have for Vampire weaknesses and some traits,

 

I'll add it separately for now though.

I've also been experiencing this problem. The "Quirk-B-Gone" potion from the aspiration rewards store and testingcheats don't completely remove quirks either.

Bug: Phone Fanatic behavior persists after quirk removal

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.47.51.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions, all game packs, Kids Room stuff, Holiday stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Become a celebrity. 2. Use your phone frequently (play games, etc) until you get the Phone Fanatic quirk. 3. Purchase a Quirk-B-Gone potion and use it to remove Phone Fanatic.
What happens when the bug occurs? The Sim continues to use their phone obsessively, interrupting activities, despite having removed the quirk. This issue persists even if the Sim gets a replacement quirk instead (such as A Serious Actor).
What do you expect to see? Once Phone Fanatic is removed, the Sim should no longer interrupt activities by looking at their phone.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

(And on a side note, having all the questions above, and then further requiring text in this Compose box is silly. If the above is enough, it should be enough!)
