Hi Xavier,

generally speaking, you could use PISI ( for this problem.

Although, we developed and tested PISI on SHR. So, I do not know, whether it is running on Om 2009 as well? (Any experiences from anybody??)

If it is running:
You could take a copy of your VCF file - synchronize this one with you existing SIM card entries (access via dbus, should be in OM 2009 I think) ... afterwards, you could edit the vcf file and sync again with the new SIM card in the OM.

The Paroli numbers are not yet visible to PISI; unless Paroli makes use of OPIMD??? But that would be new to me ...
