Chapter 5: Cloning a SIM ID
5.1. Overview
Cellebrite’s UFED enables you to clone a SIM ID by utilizing the built in SIM Card Reader, providing your
organization with valuable new functionality.
NOTE: The SIM ID cloning process clones only the SIM IDs and not the SIM contents.
The SIM ID cloning capabilities resolves many key problems facing forensic examiners today:
30

Extract Phone data while preventing the cellular device from connecting to the network - The
handset will be invisible to the network with no calls or SMS messages to, or from the handset, preserving
the current call and SMS messages history in the device - No Faraday Bag required to block RF signals.

Extract Phone data when the original SIM is not available - ICCID or IMSI can be manually programmed
into the Cloned SIM ID Card to mimic the original missing card.

Extract Phone data when the SIM card is PIN locked - Cloning the identification of the original SIM card,
allows the phone data to be extracted without losing critical data including call history and SMS messages.
