I want to get the details of the SIM card (SIM ID, SIM phone number) read through the computer connected to the router network. Is it possible to get the information remotely without opening router or SIM card? If yes, please let me know the procedure or steps I need to follow.

Thank you,

AT commands can be used when connected to the router via CLI/SSH to interact with the modem directly. For example, to find SIM ID you can execute the following command:

  • gsmctl -A 'AT+QCCID'

To find the phonenumber, you can execute this command:

  • gsmctl -A 'AT+CNUM'

However, if this command responds with just a single 'OK', then you will need to add your phone number to the phone book and read it from there. For this, you can use the command:

  • gsmctl -A 'AT+CPBW=1,"12341234",129,"MyNumber"

'1' is the index of the entry, '12341234' is your phone number and 'MyNumber' is the name of the entry.

Then, to read your phone number execute a command to read the entry at index 1:

  • gsmctl -A 'AT+CPBR=1'

You can find out more about these commands on our wiki page HERE and in official Quectel documentation HERE.
