    I am in the UK and have just received the Magic SIM Editor (v6.0) and USB

    The product also appears to be known as Prodigy SIM Reader and Edison SIM

    The SIM card is put into a USB reader and the reader plugged into my PC.

    The software uses a COM port and includes Prolific's USB to Serial Bridge
    which works fine.

    I can read my SIM card and I can change the PIN.

    However, when I try and write a new Phone Book or SMS Messages, I receive
    the following error immediately:

    System reject read or write this SIM card!

    I have tried another SIM card, and the result is the same.

    I have been to the manufacturer site at: but this was no

    The instructions included in the package are sparse and useless - The
    software is poor.

    I know nothing about SIM cards, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I just bought a new GSM cell phone from a different carrier but want to
    transfer the phone book from the old SIM to the new SIM for the new phone.
    How can I do that?

    Depending on the phones:

    1. IrDA

    2. Bluetooth

    3. SyncML

    4. Email

    5. Cable

    6. Memory card

    In some cases this can be done phone-to-phone. In other cases you have to use
    a computer or website intermediary.

    You don't mention the manufacturer or model of your phone, but there
    are several different programs such as Logomanager, MobiMB, Oxygen
    Phone Manager that can back up your addresses and phone numbers. If
    you just want to transfer phone numbers and no other details just copy
    the phone numbers from the phone to the SIM. If you want to transfer
    from one SIM to another just do the opposite and transfer the
    information from one to the other then back again. There are also
    devices that will copy the information.

    When I migrated from ATT to Cingular the sales droid used an unlocked
    Nokia 3595 to read the phone book from the old SIM into the phone and
    then write it to the new SIM.

  6. When I migrated from ATT to Cingular the sales droid used an unlocked
    That's basically what they did for me when I "migrated" from Cingular to
    AT&T. Since I wasn't in contract and purchased my phone at full price
    several months earlier, they unlocked that phone (Moto T720) and copied
    from Cingular SIM to phone to AT&T SIM.

    I don't know what the phone model is, but you can copy the sim card
    phonebook to phone's memory, and then to new sim card. Check it in
    your phone.
