    Default Can I use SAM to stretch 1 SIM card to 2 phones?

    I'm trying to get 3G internet speeds to my 3GS by making an Android phone into a hotspot. Unfortunately, I need to put the SIM into the Android phone which negates phone calling from the 3GS.

    It would seem that I could put my SIM settings into Subscriber Artificial Module and then put the physical card in the Android phone but I can't make sense of the SAM settings. Is this remotely possible or do I just have the wrong idea about SAM?

    I'm pretty sure that you have the wrong idea about SAM.

    SAM allows the Apple iPhone to activate through Apple's servers on carriers that normally would not be approved for activation. It will have zero impact on any device aside from the iPhone as activation is a process that happens on the iPhone and that is relegated only to the iPhone. It doesn't make a change on the carrier side, etc., so any activation/SAM/hacktivation on the iPhone will not impact the SIM when moved to an Android phone.

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you for your reply, however, I fear I was initially unclear. What I'm hoping to do is "activate" my iPhone with SAM in such a way that allows me to remove the SIM card but still be able to make phone calls thanks to the (theoretical) support of SAM.

    This would (theoretically) leave the SIM card free for installation in my Android phone which can then turn 3G internet access into a hotspot to feed WiFi back to my iPhone. Complicated, I know, but impossible? I'm so close!

    This is what I understood you wanted to do. My reply of "impossible" is still valid.

    The process of wildcard activation with Apple is a once-every-three-years activity (or required-after-every-restore activity). SAM assists with tricking Apple into issuing a proper activation certificate/token.

    The process of making calls and other phone tasks requires the SIM card be accessible - this is because some identifiers that are ONLY stored on the SIM are requested on a regular basis by the network. This information cannot be faked or duplicated by SAM due to the way at least one private keys is never sent to the phone from the SIM.

    Your only realistic/legal option is to ask your carrier for a twin-sim (or an additional data-only sim tied to the same account) (this is a properly implemented sim-clone - assuming your carrier supports this) then stick the twinsim in your android phone.
