do all mobile phone SIM cards have the same "memory" capacity or....my "need" is to be able to "save" my texts, but am limited by the capacity of th card(I THINK); have been thinking of having a palm top but CAN I get a larger capacity SIM card or....

but I do know there is an Italian SIM card called the SIMphonIC 3G MEGA which has a 1Mb capacity. It was specially developed for use with the new generation of advanced mobile phones.

Can you get it here? I have no idea - nor do I know which phones support it, but I imagine that it will have been specifically developed to be compatible with as many phones as possible.

what type of phone do you have - if you have a nokia with infra red connectivity, you could buy a usb irda adaptor quite cheaply, download the free software from the nokia site and save your texts to the PC.

I imagine other phones with infra red would be able to do the same.

You can buy SIM card readers (similar to the type used for Compact Flash, Smart Media, Secure Digital etc) and transfer the information to your PC.

Here's some examples:

There are literally dozens more outlets - in fact your local mobile phone outlet probably stocks them.

I think you will find that the 3G sim card will only work in a 3G phone. The sim card was developed to cope with the extra video storage capacity required with the curren 3G phones. I'm not 100% sure, just what I've read.

That's stating the obvious somewhat...:-)

Not quite true...:-(

This is the final paragraph of the link I provided:

The new SIM card developed by Oberthur Card Systems to TIM in partnership with ST is compatible with both the new 3G networks (UMTS/W-CDMA) and current GSM networks in order to ease migration and enable services such as info-on-demand, mobile banking and access to a wide range of services."
