1. A method by user equipment (UE) for avoiding bearer state mismatch, the method comprising:storing, by the UE, a passive context for use in resuming a connection with a Radio Access Network (RAN) node, the passive context comprising at least one radio bearer (RB) for use in resuming the connection with the RAN node,
while the UE is in an inactive state, locally deactivating, by the UE, the at least one RB associated with the passive context; and
signaling, to the RAN node, an indication that the at least one RB associated with the passive context and for use in resuming the connection with the RAN node was deactivated locally while in the inactive state.
