Android smartphone manufacturers systematically install more or less useful third-party applications on their devices. You have certainly already happened to come across this mysterious app called SIM toolbox. You don't know what it can be used for? We tell you more in the rest of this article..

Preinstalled apps

You know that in recent years, the storage memory available on our mobiles has started to melt like snow in the sun. The number of pre-installed applications has grown exponentially in recent years.

This abundance means that we sometimes miss useful applications. This is the case, for example, of the SIM toolbox . You've probably seen it in the apps drawer of your mobile. It must be said that its old school icon does not really encourage users to see what is hidden behind..

Easily manage the services offered by your mobile operator

The SIM toolbox also called SIM Application Toolkit is present on most smartphones sold on the market. As the name suggests, it will allow you to quickly access the services provided by your mobile operator.

Whether it's to track your consumption, personalize your mobile or access your e-mail, the shortcuts available in the SIM toolbox will change your daily life. In one click you will access the desired function..

image All shortcuts are classified by themes. Once the application is launched, you will have the choice between several sections, namely: my account, communicate, personalize, MMS services, voice services, SMS services and search. Please note depending on the smartphone model and the package chosen the order and availability of services may vary.

Consult its follow-up from the SIM toolbox

To monitor internet and mobile consumption, you have the choice between two solutions. Either you connect to your customer area from an internet browser or use the function devolved for this purpose on the toolbox application.

  • Open the application drawer containing all the software installed on your smartphone
  • Click on the SIM Toolbox icon
  • Select the section my account then follow consumption image
  • Confirm your choice by pressing the OK key image

You will be able to be informed in real time of your consumption and know for example if you are off plan. Please note that not all SIM cards can manage its service. In case of problems, do not hesitate to contact your mobile operator.
