A SIM card contains its unique serial number (ICCID), international mobile subscriber identity (IMSI), security authentication and ciphering information, temporary information related to the local network, a list of the services the user has access to and two passwords: a personal identification number (PIN) for ordinary use and a personal unblocking code (PUK) for PIN unlocking.

What is my phone number i have the sim but have lost the packet it came in and never have credit can you help please


If you've got a SIM card for a mobile, and don't know what the phone number is - the easiest way to check, is to use the card to phone a landline phone number, and then from that landline phone, dial 1471. Caller identification should then repeat the number to you. For more, see our CLI page.

Alternatively, call Customer Services from the mobile - they should be able to see your number.

Note that the telephone number itself isn't stored on the SIM card (this is how you're able to change phone number without getting a new SIM). The phone stores a unique number called a Subscriber Identity number (IMSI). Provided that you're able to connect your phone to a PC, you may be able to use PC software such as Oxygen to extract the IMSI from the SIM. Once you have the IMSI, you may be able to contact the SIM network operator and ask them to tell you which number maps to the IMSI.

Want to know what the sims card is for under the batttery

A Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) on a removable SIM Card securely stores the service-subscriber key (IMSI) used to identify a subscriber on mobile telephony devices (such as computers and mobile phones). The SIM card allows users to change phones by simply removing the SIM card from one mobile phone and inserting it into another mobile phone or broadband telephony device.

G600 handset

Well, I've asked Samsung for the generic firmware and am in the process of escalating this up the chain with O2. My guess is that the O2 firmware was customised by Samsung to O2's spec, so they've possibly just inadvertently left out a way to alter the function of the soft-buttons. I hope it's inadvertent as I suspect it's illegal under EU antitrust law to hard-code the button in this way. Of course if anyone reading this has access to a document from O2 specifying the button should be permanently set to O2 Active, that would be very interesting indeed.

In the meantime, if anyone is charged for accidentally accessing O2 Active, they should simply get a refund from O2 customer services and register a complaint each time. Any problems with this, please post a message here.
BTW I wouldn't recommend flashing the phone with anything other than O2's official firmware as it'll invalidate the warranty and there could be problems using it on O2's network. I don't know if this is the case though. I have seen various firmware versions on the Net (eg G600XEGL1), so if anyone's tried reflashing their O2 G600, perhaps they would post a message here as to how successful it was.
thank it

Mobile stolen

Unlike the Electronic Serial Number or MEID of CDMA and other wireless networks, the IMEI is only used to identify the device, and has no permanent or semi-permanent relation to the subscriber. Instead, the subscriber is identified by transmission of an IMSI number, which is stored on a SIM card which can (in theory) be transferred to any handset. However, many network and security features are enabled by knowing the current device being used by a subscriber.

If a mobile phone is stolen, the owner can call his or her network provider and instruct them to "ban" the phone using its IMEI number. This renders the phone useless, regardless of whether the phone's SIM is changed.
