SIM Card Reader

Over the past several years the increased demand for SIM card readers has resulted in market being filled with SIM reading devices of all shapes and kinds. The prices for the readers vary very much as well - from several cents to several tens of dollars. How to choose one that would be reliable and yet cost-effective? Below we list a few of the important factors to consider when buying a reader: 

  • Controller based reader. deThe manufacturers of low cost SIM card readers are often sacrificing quality to cut production costs. Thus, most of inexpensive SIM card readers do not use controllers at all and all data processing is handled by the PC. This design approach is cheaper however much more unreliable and may result in a SIM card getting blocked or even destroyed.
  • Durable casing. Cheap readers are often made of low quality, cheap plastic that tends to break easily after several months of use.
  • Compliance with technical standards. The PS/SC standard allows you to use third party software with your reader given that the software complies with this standard. This gives you greater flexibility and allows you to add more various functionalities to your reader other than reading a SIM card.
  • Software support and regular updates. Companies that invest a lot in developing the software and hardware also provide timely support and regular updates. Whenever a problem with the reader occurs it can be solved by contacting manufacturer and getting a response from the first hands.
