SIMCon retrieves deleted SMS messages

Posted by Xavier Ashe on February 27, 2006

SIMCon is a program that allows the user to
securely image all files on a GSM SIM card to a computer file with a
standard smart card reader. The user can subsequently analyze the
contents of the card including stored numbers and text messages.

Some of SIMCon's features:

– Read all available files on a SIM card and store in an archive file
– Analyze and interpret content of files including text messages and stored numbers
Recover deleted text messages stored on the card but not readable on phones
– Manage PIN and PUK codes
– Print report that can be used as evidence based on user selection of items
– Secure file archive using hashing
– Export items to files that can be imported in popular spreadsheet programs
– Supports international charsets

SIMCon is made for use within law enforcement and is the investigating
officer's number one choice for securing evidence on SIM cards and
present them in court. SIMCon can however be a valuable tool for others
who need to secure evidence from SIM cards, and recover items such as
deleted text messages. SIMCon is available for Microsoft Windows only.
