<div>Having a feature like this is not going to create a higher incidence of SIM theft, the technology is already out there (there are even software programs that can steel much of your key info out of the air), knowing that, you should just watch where you put your phone and keep tabs on your cellphone account, if you see unusual activity freeze your data services. I think this would be a great feature to have if it were not illegal, this is debatable of course, but OpenMoko might not want to get into such a situation. I think a SIM copy for contacts should be included. As far as multi SIM calling support, how about a dual SIM slot with one inside (your home one) and a slot you can access from the outside, like a SD slot, for changing SIM you use in other areas.
<div>>Another 'nice' addition to this would be a application which generates random<br>>SIM cards, until you find one which actually connect to the network. I anyone<br>>pulls off the SIM copy functionality someone else will do this and one day
<br>>they may hit your SIM. Leaving your phone out of sight for a few minutes may<br>>put you at risk of having your SIM card cloned, and you won't know until its<br>>to late. And using your SIM for criminal activities sure beats an anonymous
