It’s important that you know where to find the ICCID number for your SIM card. The most obvious place is on the SIM itself, or the packet it came in. However, you might not have access to the SIM card and you may have thrown the packet away.
If you insert the SIM card into a device such as a mobile phone, you can often find the ICCID in the settings menu. If you’re using an IoT device, navigate to your device’s module as you’ll have to use an AT command. These commands will look something like this:
- SIMCOM: “AT+CCID=?”
- Telit: “AT#CCID=?”
- Quectel: “AT+QCCID=?”
In many cases, this can be a technical step too far for anyone trying to find an ICCID number. Fortunately, some Connectivity Management Platforms (CMPs), such as NOVA, will also allow you to see the ICCID number for your SIM card with ease.
