    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Worked with all SIMs that I have handy (list below). Build quality is not perfect but acceptable.

    Cons:

    Software is tricky to install (not obivious that USB-RS232 driver must be installed separately). Too many errors during data exchange with SIM card (not sure if it is buggy software or my unit is somewhat faulty). It can read SMS storage of card 3-4 times without errors, and report error on about 50% next time.

    OtherThoughts:

    Tested with SIMs of following GSM operators from my recent trips: MTS (Russia), BeeLine(Russia), Megafon(Russia), Peoples(HK), Globul(Bulgaria), Bite(Lithuania), FarEasTone(Taiwan), Vodafone Egypt, Vodafone Germany - all worked.

    Bottomline:

    Useful for ocassional SIM backups. First time I was able to unload internal SMS storage of my phone and save all messages to text file (using several SIM's as carrier). ;) All programs that works with my phone support phonebook only, but not phone's SMS storage.
