I read somewhere a while back that it was about a gram per thousand SIMs. I'm actually in the process of collecting 1,000 SIMs so I can run a test. I figure I'm about halfway there ;)

Well, I have no idea what kind of sim cards they are, who the manufacturer is, or how old they are. Do you have some pictures you can display?


How about this: I'll buy all 100 kilos. I'll even pay for the shipping. My company will process the cards and pay you for the actual amount of gold in there.

US sim cards are a "one shot" only. If a number is changed or cancelled, the sim is "burned"
by the provider, making it unuseable, at least for accessing the network. It can not be reactivated for that purpose.

However, they do still contain any phone numbers or sim messages (RIM only, i believe) saved to it. I'm amazed at
the number of people who get rid of a phone or SIM without making sure private info is removed.

I am very serious about this.This info is not for someone to access & use any info in any way
which is a violation of privacy or civil rights.
We'll leave that up to the phone companies who cooperate with domestic spying operations.

Hi , when the sim card is put on the side for scrap only via the company , the phone number or sms text etc is not available , you need to active the card to get all this info , those card , we called scrap one are only good to mouve in the phone , like to unlock the phone or go on the menu of the phoneand set it etc , they sell on ebay , is for this purpose , maybe if you are a crack in cell phone can have all the info , but as far as i know , is not possible ,

Don't worry. I don't think you're doing anything wrong. I put my last comment on there for the benefit of anyone
else reading this who may not have a good motive.

Other countries & companies may have different procedures (I worked for AT&T in the US), but if the owner stored
phone numbers to the sim rather than the phone and unless the SIMs are wiped, either by
the company or the end-user, the sim acts basically like a memory card. No subscriber info remains on it,
unless they put some info in the contact list in sim memory, like their home phone, work phone, etc.
Sim memory doesn't support multiple listings for one contact, as the phone does; for example:
under "Fred Smith" you'd list "home 5551212" "work 5551234" "cell 5556789". But if you tried copying this contact to the sim,
only the first listing, in this case "Fred Smith - (home) would be copied. The rest would be lost.
If knew who a customer was, I would give them their old sim back so that they could copy their phone
numbers to their new phone. Otherwise, i would snap the card in the middle before discarding, thus making it unusable.

Not to be political BUT "yes" - nearly all US phone companies, landline & wireless, including AT&T
cooperated with domestic spying. By making subscriber info & access to communications available
without the knowledge or consent of the subscriber.
They were charged, but of course, all charges were dropped.

EDIT: I'm sorry - RIM stands for Research In Motion, the parent company of Blackberry.

No problem. my brain is full of useless information like that.
a friend of mine told me i've never under-explained anything in my life!:cry: :lol:
good luck with the recovery & please keep us informed how your processing proceeds.
with enough feedstock, these are really among the most straight forward items to process, i would think.

I was a tad optimistic on the number of SIMs I've collected so far. I counted them up the other night and determined I am a little over a third of my way to 1000 cards, including SIMs and access cards for satellite set-top boxes. I think I'll just try for 500, since it took me a few years to accumulate the pile I have :roll:

I think I might try hitting up the local cell phone stores and ask what they do with their SIM card discards.
