Although most of the modern mobile
devices use internal memory to store contacts and messages, some data
may be also stored on SIM cards. Some phones allow us to preview and
edit it; however, full information can usually be accessible
only through a SIM card reader.
Detailed information about the SIM card can be displayed through selecting the SIM item in the device tree. There are various SIM card data accessible in the subfolders.
- SIM Phonebook
- SIM phonebook is single level only (Unlike phonebooks in modern
mobile phones, SIM cards don't support more contact
information than just a single name and a single phone number). To learn
more about phonebook editing, proceed to the Phonebook section.
- Last dialed numbers
- Some phones store the information about the calls on the SIM
card (usually out-of-date devices). In the vast majority of cases, the
information is being stored in the phone memory (the Last dialed numbers item in the device's root).
- Fixed dialing numbers
- Special safety list containing phone numbers set by default (usually
by the network operator). To write into this list you have to enter the
PIN2 code. The Activated attribute displays when the SIM card
is set in the safety mode. The same editing principles apply on this
list as with the regular phonebook. To learn more about phonebook
editing, proceed to the Phonebook section.
- Some devices store messages on the SIM card. Such messages can be viewed here.To learn more about SMS editing, proceed to the SMS section.
