ICCID (Integrated Circuit Card Identifier) - A SIM card contains its unique serial number (ICCID). ICCIDs are stored in the SIM cards and are also printed on the SIM card during a personalisation process. The ICCID is defined by the ITU-T recommendation E.118 as the Primary Account Number. A full ICCID is 19 or 20 characters.

Sometimes it happens that on the SIM card is printed only the last 13 digits of ICCID number. On this basis, the network operator is able to identify the card while online checker may show incorrect check results.

You can also locate ICCID in phone settings:

  • Open the list of all Applications.
  • Then, open the Settings.
  • Thirdly, go to the About Phone or About Device.
  • Choose ICCID to see the mentioned number.
