What is SIM Toolkit

2011-11-15, 13:58 PM

There is an app int he app drawer call Sim Toolkit.  What is the app for?  When I press on the app it does nothing.  Searching Moto site does not provide an answer.

I think it is like a driver for the Sim card.

When you press the app it does nothing that I can see.  Just wondering why Moto put that app on there if it doesn't do anything.  I'm pretty sure it does something...just wondering what.

I was wondering about this as well. I was skeptical to try and start it - didn't want it to start draining battery or something. I just hid it from the app drawer for now...

This is odd. Let me ask -- what is the Build number of the software you have on your phone, and the model number? (Menu > Settings > About phone)

Thanks.

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

Matt...I don't know what going on here, but the SimTool Kit app is gone from my apps drawer.  I have no idea what has happen.  It was there when I first posted this thread.  But, it's not there now and I don't know what happened to it.
