Automatically:

  1. Ensure the SIM card reader driver has been installed (often installs automatically).
  2. Connect the SIM card reader to your computer (usually appears as a Smart Card Reader in Device Manager).
  3. Launch MPE+.
  4. Insert the original SIM card into the reader according to the picture on the reader (you may see a Smart Card device in Device Manager that shows it is not working, but that is fine). If the phone uses a micro-SIM, you can pop the micro-SIM into the micro-SIM adapter so it fits in the SIM card reader.
  5. Select "Read SIM" from the Tools toolbar.
  6. Once it has read the IMSI and ICCID, click “Continue”.
  7. Insert a blank/forensic SIM into the reader and click “OK”.
  8. After the values have been written to the forensic SIM, MPE+ will allow you to view and save the results.
  9. (Optional) If the phone uses a micro-SIM, you can use the micro-SIM adapter as a template to cut the forensic SIM down to micro-SIM size to fit in the phone.


Manually (if you already know the correct IMSI and ICCID values):

  1. Ensure the SIM card reader driver has been installed (often installs automatically).
  2. Connect the SIM card reader to your computer (usually appears as a Smart Card Reader in Device Manager).
  3. Launch MPE+.
  4. Insert a blank/forensic SIM card into the reader according to the picture on the reader (you may see a Smart Card device in Device Manager that shows it is not working, but that is fine).
  5. Select "Enter SIM" in the Tools toolbar.
  6. Enter the IMSI and ICCID (either in octet form or in raw form), and click “Continue”.
  7. Insert a forensic SIM into the reader and click “OK”.
  8. After the values have been written to the forensic SIM, MPE+ will allow you to view and save the results.
  9. (Optional) If the phone uses a micro-SIM, you can use the micro-SIM adapter as a template to cut the forensic SIM down to micro-SIM size to fit in the phone.
