Hello,

I have one sim card for my iPhone that I remove and insert into my laptop from time to time for EDGE internet access when I travel. I would like to know if there is a way to duplicate a SIM card so that I wouldn't have to swap the SIM in and out.

Thanks

No, there isn't. That's the whole point of a SIM card—that your number is tied to ONE card.

If you really want to, I believe one can get a data sim. Its just a sim card associated with a data only package. I am not sure if they still do it. When I worked at Cingular during the GSM roll out there were packages available, I know since I set them up. You had to buy the GSM PCMCIA Card at the time too.
