    usb phone sim card reader

    Has anyone been able to use a cheap sim reader? It is not being seen as a temporary storage device in my file manager. I had hoped that I would be able to see it in the file manager, as I can a memory stick, and look at the contents of the sim. Nothing shows up in the file manager.

    Code:

    Device 48 is the sim card reader.

    I also tried accessing it via Virtual box. The device shows up under the USBs and I have been able to connect to the reader, but it shows no sms messages as being present. I have too many there and am trying to save them to disk before deleting them to make more space on the phone. So the software supplied is not seeing the messages that are on the machine.
