A subscriber identity module (SIM) is an integrated circuit that securely stores the International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) and the related key used to identify and authenticate subscribers on mobile telephony devices (such as mobile phones and computers).A SIM is embedded into a removable SIM card, which can be transferred between different mobile devices. SIM cards were first made the same size as a credit card (85.60 mm × 53.98 mm × 0.76 mm). The development of physically-smaller mobile devices prompted the development of a smaller SIM card, the mini-SIM card. Mini-SIM cards have the same thickness as full-size cards, but their length and width are reduced to 25 mm × 15 mm.



Types of SIM cards we offer:

    • USIM (Universal subscriber identity module): an extension of the existing SIM technology which brings in additional security features such as the mutual authentication and extended encryption keys, as well as an improved address book.
    • RUIM : A removable user identity module (RUIM or R-UIM) card is an identification chip for cell phones that work on Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) networks. A RUIM card stores a user's personal information, such as his or her name and account number, phone number, address book, text messages, and other settings. These cards can be swapped between compatible phones, so the user's information and settings are easily transferred.
    • Mini sim : The mini-SIM card has the same contact arrangement as the full-size SIM card and is normally supplied within a full-size card carrier, attached by a number of linking pieces. This arrangement (defined in ISO/IEC 7810 as ID-1/000) allows such a card to be used in a device requiring a full-size card, or in a device requiring a mini-SIM card after breaking the linking pieces. The later 3FF card or micro-SIM cards have the same thickness and contact arrangements, but the length and width are further reduced. Such SIM cards are used in the recent smartphones, which require more hardware space for additional features, and reducing the size of the SIM is a possible way to gain space. Such handsets include iPhone 4S, Galaxy Samsung SIII, etc.
    • Nano sim: In early 2012, the nano-SIM or 4FF (4th form factor) was introduced, which measures 12.3 × 8.8 × 0.67 mm and reduces the previous format to the contact area while maintaining the existing contact arrangements. This represents the smallest SIM chip to date. A small rim of isolating material is left around the contact area to avoid short circuits with the socket. The 0.7 mm thickness of the nano-SIM is about 15 percent less than its predecessor. 4FF can be put into adapters for use with devices taking 2FF or 3FF SIMs. As smartphone become more advanced, their increasing need in including additional hardware parts in the chassis of the device forces them to make compromises in other parts, the SIM is one of them. One of the pioneer devices sporting a nano sim is the iPhone 5.
