Abstract: In each and every mobile phone the SIM card plays a major role in communicating the information. In a crime if a mobile phone is been taken as the evidence, the first and the foremost thing is to investigate the SIM card. Though the evolution of smart phone is very rapid without the SIM card the smart phone is uncertain in communication. The SIM card stores some valuable information like call logs, messages, contacts etc…. . For extracting those information we need a tool. In this experiment we are using a tool known as SIMXtractor from CDAC. It is not a open source tool. By using this tool we are able extract those information from the SIM card.
