How Do You Hack A Prepaid Sim Card And Get Unlimited Minutes For Free?

SIM cards are the basis of many modern cellular phones and you can switch them out between phones. If you are looking to hack a pre-paid SIM card in an attempt to get unlimited minutes you'd better have a degree in electrical engineering or know someone who is, otherwise you're wasting your time.

SIM is short for subscriber identification module and is an integrated circuit that stores information on devices such as a cell phone. It can be removed and used on a similar phone but that will not alter any of the information on the module itself. It contains the unique number of the phone, security authentication, and a list of the services the user has access to.

The first SIM cards were developed in 1991 and SIM operating systems come in two main types, native and Java card. Native SIM cards are based on software that is specific to a software vendor. A Java card is based on certain standards, and are part of the Java programming language which is used in any number of computer applications all over the world. The Java card allows the SIM to contain programs that are completely independent of the hardware on which it runs.

If you have intimate knowledge of the Java programming language and have  Java SIM card, it is possible to hack it but due to advances in technology, it is doubtful you'll get much of anything for free and if you do, it won't be for long. If you want unlimited cell phone minutes, there are a number of plans from many different providers that offer unlimited minutes for a monthly fee. If you are caught stealing services from a cell phone provider you could also find yourself in some legal trouble, so it's best to play by the rules.
