pySIM (also called SimReader) is a relatively simple open source program that accomplishes the following tasks:
- Downloads phonebook entries from a SIM Card
- Downloads SMS messages from a SIM Card
- Imports .txt files from other acquisitions


- Windows 98 or later
- Smart Card Base Components if using Win98, ME & NT 4.0
- GSM SIM Card Reader


- Cost of Ownership: Since pySIM is freeware it is not cost prohibitive
- Ease of use: The simplicity of pySIM enables novice investigators to acquire data
- Logging capabilities: Some competing SIM readers do not keep a logfile
