GSM SIM Card Editor


Ever lost a cell / mobile phone.  Lost all those numbers.  Wish you had a backup - even one 6 months old.

GSM SIM Card Editor allows for the backing up and/or management of phone book entries on a GSM SIM Card using an installed PC/SC compliant smart card reader.  Most smart card readers on the PC are PC/SC compliant.

The applciations works on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003.  It is untested on Windows 98 and Windows ME, but should work.  The core of the application is written using ActiveX and can be run from MS-Excel using its VBA engine.  A sample MS-Excel template has been included.


Smart Card Readers


GSM SIM Edit works with most PC/SC smart card readers on the market.  It has been tested with the Schlumberger and Gemplus readers (the most popular brands) using their PC/SC drivers on Windows.

Actual models tested are:

  • GemPC 410 (Serial)
  • GemPC 430 (USB)
  • GemPC 400 (GCR400)
  • Schlumberger Reflex 60

If you want to purchase a reader, you can get a compatible one from directly or via Amazon.

In addition, some banks offer them as part of their Internet Banking and as part of their credit card program.  One such bank, ANZ Bank, offers them for free as part of their credit card program.  Click for details.


SIM Templates


SIM cards normally won't fit into a reader without first being placed within a holder.  You can buy a SIM holder from most phone retailers for around $3USD.
