What is a USB SIM card reader?

So first things first, here we are going to answer the question 'what is a USB SIM card reader?'. You may or may not have heard of this useful piece of technology but it is becoming ever more popular as the use of cell phones increases across the country, especially cell phones that have removable SIM cards. A USB SIM card reader is a device that you insert your SIM card into in order to perform a number of functions that we have listed below. The USB SIM card device connects to your computer or laptop via a USB connection and hey presto you can carry out one or a number of the functions listed below, it really is that easy. It is a small and useful device that many people use in order to transfer or restore information that is currently on the SIM card memory or that has been deleted from it. Once connected to your computer, the USB SIM card reader can be read by any number of software programs, synchronized and then put into use.

USB SIM card software is simply the device itself and the software or program that it is used with on a computer. These two elements can be bought together or on their own but both are required.

What does a USB SIM card reader do?

Now that you know what a USB SIM card reader is let's cover what they can actually do. You can use USB SIM card reader software to recover and transfer information that is currently stored or has been previously stored onto the memory of a SIM card. When we say previously we do not mean ten years ago but things that have been deleted relatively recently. That is what the software and reader does in a nutshell, and it is important to remember that this is not information that has been stored onto the phones memory itself.

People that want to know how to retrieve deleted text messages need look no further than getting hold of a USB SIM card reader and downloading some simple software on the internet. This is arguably the most popular use for a USB SIM card reader but there are several others and they have been listed below for you.

Retrieve deleted text messages - If you have accidentally deleted text messages that you want to read again or you are suspicious of a partner and want to see just what text messages they have been deleting then this can be done by putting the SIM card that the messages were sent to, into a USB SIM card reader. You can then attach it to your computer and it can work with certain spy software that can be downloaded for free on the internet, to bring back the text messages that you or your partner thought had been lost forever. It may sound too good to be true or impossible but millions of people are now doing this. Please see our page on how to retrieve deleted text messages for more information.

Find out who has been called from the SIM card - Just as you can do with retrieving deleted text messages, you can also find out who has been called from a SIM card by restoring call lists that have been deleted.

Copy information from a SIM card onto your PC - If you want to store or retain a copy of data from your cell phone on your PC then a USB SIM card reader can help you do this. You can copy text messages, your phone book or pictures onto your computer.

Backup your SIM card - Alternatively, the USB SIM card reader can be used to make a back up of all of the information that is on your SIM card such as messages and numbers. This information can be kept on the computer as a copy so that if anything happens to your current SIM card or you decide to get a new one, you can simply pop the replacement into the USB SIM card reader and sync it with the computer.

These are simple but effective uses and as we will explain later on USB SIM card reader software are very easy and cost effective to get hold of.

USB SIM card readers are simple to use

This technology may all sound a bit alien to you but trust me when I say that anybody can use them, you do not have to be a cell phone expert or computer whizz to learn how to make the most of the benefits that they bring. When I say that it is as easy as taking your SIM card out of your phone, popping it into the USB SIM card reader, plugging this into your computer and then clicking a few buttons to open up the software on the computer to use it with, I am being totally honest! As we have stated in the previous section, the information that can be restored or transferred is information that is currently stored or has previously been stored on the SIM card's memory. Whether you buy the USB SIM card reader and the software together or on their own separately they are still dead simple to use. The reader itself is a physical product that you have to purchase and have in your hands and he software can either be downloaded from a number of sites on the internet or can come on a CD with the reader as a package.
