  7. 7. Introduction 44 Introduction4.1 SIM Managers feature highlights SIM Manager is an application that allows you to easily manage the contents of a SIM card, and perform operations such as: - add, remove or edit phonebook contacts; - create backups of phonebook files ; - sort the contacts of the SIM phonebook; - enable, disable or change the PIN; - connect to web-based address-books to send or retrieve contacts, the following services are supported: - Google contacts - Yahoo! contacts - import contacts from iTunes backups; - import contacts from vCard files. Highlights 1. Ease of use - interacting with a SIM card is much easier with a computer, than it is with a phone; 2. Mobility - transfer contacts from one SIM to another when changing mobile operators, quickly update the phone prefixes when traveling from one country to another; retrieve contacts and texts from portable devices that backup their data inside iTunes (ex: iPhone, iPad, etc). SIM Manager can also retrieve contacts from Yahoo!, Google. 3. Interoperability - the phonebook can be exported to a CSV file and further processed by other applications; the same mechanism can be used to synchronize the contents of multiple SIM cards, or merge the contacts from different applications (ex: organizers, email clients, etc); 4. Wide compatibility - SIM Manager works with any SIM card, regardless of the phone model you have, or the operator you are subscribed to. There is no need to purchase additional cables to connect the phone to the computer, since SIM Manager interacts with the SIM card directly, using a smart card reader.4.2 SIM Managers components SIM Managers package consists of the software modules, and this guide.4.3 System requirements Hardware requirements · Personal computer with an available port (ex.

  14. 14. 11 SIM Manager SIM Managers additional settings can be modified by clicking Settings. Here is a list of items that can be changed: 1. Allow contacts without names. If enabled, SIM Manager will allow you to write contacts that dont have a name to the card and to the local file. Note. The contacts entered without name will not be visible when displayed on the phone. 2. Save CSV in current ANSI codepage. If the option is enabled, SIM Manager will write the CSV files in a non-Unicode format, using the default ANSI codepage of the system. Normally this feature can be turned off, and it should only be used when the CSV files are going to be further processed by a non-Unicode application (such as Microsoft Excel, prior to the 2007 version). 3. Save only GSM contacts to CSV file. The CSV files will only contain the contacts of the phonebook, while other numbers (ex: own numbers, last dialled numbers, etc) will not be stored. 4. Select interface language allows you to choose the language of the programs interface. Note. To apply the new settings, restart SIM Manager. 5. Show toolbar buttons text will show the title of a button under its icon. Please note that in some languages button titles may be rather long, so not all the buttons will be shown on the toolbar. 6. Read/Write all files from SIM card. If you enable this option, SIM Manager will read all the files (ex: phonebook, own numbers, etc) of the SIM card at once; otherwise only the phonebook will be read/written. 7. Write to SIM updated files only. If enabled, SIM Manager will only write data to the card, if there were changes (ex: a number was modified, a new entry was added, etc). 8. Show deleted SMS. Some phones mark an SMS as deleted instead of actually deleting it from the SIM card. If this option is checked, SIM Manager will retrieve such SMSes. An SMS that was marked as deleted will be shown in red. This option is useful if you want to recover a deleted SMS. 9. Allow gaps in phonebook. Gaps can be formed in the phonebook if contacts are removed. If this © Dekart
  15. 15. Using SIM Manager 12 option is checked, the gaps will be removed, thus the list of contacts will be continuous.
