    I don't know if this thread is allowed, if not mods please delete.
    I wanted to know if it's possible to have a clone of my sim card and have it on another phone. The reason is I don't want to bring my iphone to the gym risk of it getting stolen and swapping the sim card out is a pain. So basically I just want to know if there's away.

    It is possible, but not legal. Just pop out the SIM card with a mechanical pencil with a metal tip about the size of the hole, instead of having to keep destroying paperclips.

    It is actually agains the DMCA to clone a SIM card. As for the SIM tray, I have a .7mm mechanical pencil that I use only to pop out the SIM tray.
