SIManager on A5 devices


Hello,

Pity at the moment SIManager not work on iPhone 4S or iPad 2 device because the jailbreak procedure doesn’t create the device to access the baseband; if somebody with 4S have the device like dlci.spi-baseband.extra* let me know

I’m trying to get some answer from dev team

I will tweet just found a solution and updated software



SIManager 2.8


hello,

with this update is possible to save some special character in the sim number : “#”,”;”,”,”

As beta function, you can now access sms saved on the sim; this function is limited for now: you can read and write the sms but only manually, without insert or pickup from native message database… and i think that for now this work only for standard gsm characters and not with chines, cyrillic etc but i wait for you feedback

If the function is of your interest, i will implement better and i will allow transfer from/to native message (maybe i will wait for ios5 that i suppose will change the database)

First time you will try to use sms function, you will get a db error, restarting SIManager again the new db will be created

Available in the next days into bigboss repo

For user that have infinite reading SIM on iphone 4, copy this into iphone into /tmp and rename as sendcmd (its not a true zip file), set 755 permission (execution) and from terminal or putty go into /tmp (cd /tmp) logged as root and run this command
./sendcmd “AT+CPBR=?”
and send me the output but if the result is like this
photo
the device isnt accessible, dont know if caused by another app that use/patch commcenter of a bad jb.
But without a working device the app can do nothing…

Another clue can be the output of command ls /dev

SIManager help


As suggested by Martin, an easy recapitulation steps to Managing your SIM:

1 – Unlock SIM if you are using a SIM lock and it is not already unlocked.
2 – Allow iPhone to finish “Searching” for carrier — at this point it doesn’t matter whether Airplane mode is on or off.
3 – “Read from SIM” will import the contacts from your SIM card into the SIManager Local List (unchanged imported contacts have a neutral color in list). Note: if you get a database error, restart the app.
4 – Replace, Delete, Import, or Modify contacts by pressing the contact you want to act on (turning it yellow) bringing up the “Edit Local Contact” menu (changed contacts will be in green, deleted contacts will be in red).
5 – “+” will add contacts bring up the “Add Local Contact” menu (new contacts will be in green).
6 – The function wheel will bring up the “List Function Menu” for Clearing, Deleting All, Resorting, Backing up and Restoring the Local List, Importing the iPhone Addressbook, and for starting and stopping the Debug Log.
7 – “Write to SIM” after all changes are made to the Local List will save it back to the SIM.

IMPORTANT : at end of modification you MUST WRITE the SIM to permanent save the contacts; all contacts in the local list become gray, then you can close the app

****************** UPDATE ******************

hello,

 

seem that there are issue with some type of SIM, so i have add a log trace during the read function.

 

If you have issue proceed with these step:

 

tool / start log creation

img_0184

 

 

perform the usual Read SIM function and at end tool / Send log

img_0185

 

 

A send email form will be show, with log already attacched

img_0186

Please, keep in mind that the log is a trace of connection from the software with your SIM, so maybe that it contain some personal information (number and contacts)! If uou not agree to send this information, for debug only ofcourse, NOT send any email

 

——————————————————

 

hello guys,

 

to start, i remember you that  SIManager work on a ‘local copy’ of SIM data and all modification are made on this local database; to bring the change into SIM (add, change or deletion) you MUST use Write To SIM function. Another important note: the first time you use SIManager, or you exchange the SIM of iPhone, you MUST use the Read From SIM function because only using it SIManager can know how many contact can store your SIM. If you dont do it will receive the error message SIM is full! trying to add any contact!

 

To empty the sim:

  • Read from SIM
  • Tool / Empty SIM (all row become red)
  • Write to SIM

 

New with 1.9

Search bar to search name or number

Sort the local list to name or position into SIM (the default)

The navigation bar now display SIMan (xx/yy) where xx are the number of contacts used and yy the total number of contact that your SIM can store

 

So now with tool menu you can

img_0123

 

with Add (+) you can choice to pickup a contact from iPhone or enter it manually

img_0125

img_0126

 

 

selecting an entry from the list

img_0124

Where replace change the selected entry with a contact picked from iPhone where with modify you can edit directly the entry.

 

All SIM that i have directly tested work fine, you you have issue with some SIM model (i have read that italian 3 sim ha not work) the only chance to solve the issue is to find a user with the problem and a good knowledge of iphone that can test for me some command with SSH (or send me a SIM)

 

ciao

SIManager and IOS4


hi all,

 

i have feedback that delete contact and empty SIM not work with ios4 (app crash)

 

i will update the app in the next days, if are there other issue with ios4 to report please leave a comment here

 

**** i have sent the update to iSpazio and will be available on cydia in the next days ****



SIManager 1.8


hi all,

 

well, with the help of Petr, Andrey, obigfish and  A4 Master, the 1.8 seem to work fine with extended characters like cyrillic, arabic chinese etc..

if you find some issue let me know

 

another addon of 1.8 is the lenght of field name saved into the SIM; since now was fixed to 14, now to optimize the use with the new SIM with more space, the field lenght is read from the SIM. To use this  feature, if a previous version of SIManager is installed, you must do a ‘read from SIM’ at least one time

 

Please remember how ‘fast read’ in the setup work: when on, the read from SIM loop is stopped at the 1st empty entry.. so if you save the contact without hole, in position 1 to 100 for example, at the position 101 (empty) the loop is stopped without read till 120 or 250 or 500 depending on sim capacity

 

thanks to Giovanni for new splash screen and other guys that sent to me localization file

 

tomorrow should be available on cydia



SIManager 1.6


hello,

 

i have received some request for support arabic and cyrillic but need help of users in that zone that can copy and run a test application from commandline (on the iphone), to check which set of characters are available on that sim

 

if somebody is interested contact me by email or leave a comment here



SIManager 1.0 beta


Hi,

*********************************

1.8 is here :)

seem to work fine with extended characters like cyrillic, arabic chinese etc..

if you find some issue let me know

*********************************

     1.5 sent now to beyouriphone

*********************************

 

BUG FIX: from comments “when you import all contact from iPhone to sim, the last name was display first contrary to the manual + add. Seems the auto all contact import doesnt care thé firstname lastname option setup.Can you fix this please ? Thank you”

 

The copy iphone to SIM now check if a number already exist on SIM and bypass it

 

*********************************

                           1.4

*********************************

i have send now to beyouriphone the 1.4 with some fix and:

 

mod: when a contact is added to sim list is truncated immediately to the max 14 characters (now you see full name till saved to sim and reloaded)

 

new: added function Copy iPhone to SIM; of course if the SIM has sufficent capacity

 

mod: when a contact is added to sim list all space and special characters from numbers are removed (it was cause of error writing sim)

 

new: double tap on navigation bar to move the list; on center to go middle, a bit more to left or to right to go at the top or the bottom

 

hope you enjoy and that it work on all phone now :)

 

 

and please remember my RSS reader with push notification for FREE in AppStore : feed push :)   (ex pushNews)

 

 

******************* UPDATE:  the version 1.2 is now available on repo test.beyouriphone.com; all incompatibility with 3.1.2 should be removed… all peoples in direct contact with me are able toread the SIM with this version; dont know why somebody has yet the error.

 

if you contact me i will send a test app to check the answer of the SIM during initialyzing (we read how many contact can save the SIM)

 

the fast read swicth tell the application do not try to read full SIM but stop a the first empty entry ; if you are sure that your contact are save sequentially, can use this switch to fast the read function… if you are not sure leave the switch off and all possibile entry will be checked

 

1.2 BUG: the total number of possibilecontact on the SIM wa not retained, so opening the application and adding contact you will see a message “the SIM is full”; of course isnt true, the 1.3 that i sent to beyouriphonesolve this bug

 

———————————————————————

 

this is yet a beta version because i cannot test on all devices model/all firmware/all base band, so maybe it dont work on some configuration…   i dont need it for myself  but i have received some request fom users that was using an application available on cydia for 2.x firmare, so i write SIManager :)   that will be available in the next days

A little note about it work:

 

when yuo use Read from SIM function the contact are save in a local database and next time you open SIManager this db is used to show the contacts; the function is a bite slow,be patience:)

img_0101

 

Standard SIM allow only 2 field, a description of 14 characters and a phone number

img_0098

 

  • black background mean that contact is as it was read from SIM
  • red background mean that the contact is deleted
  • dark red background mean the contact has been modifyed

 

When the information will be saved back to the SIM all background return to black

 

Select the contact to be modified

img_0100

 

and import into phone contacts

img_01021

 

or touch the + button to pickup a contact from phone and save in the SIM list

img_0099

 

available in cydia in the repo test.beyouriphone.com
