SIMs, like any other SmartCard communicate over an interface very
similar to I2C, with the notable difference, that the terminal always
is the "bus" master.

Building your very own SmartCard terminal is very easy. Or you just use
one of the ready to use ones (from Towitoko, Reiner SCT, etc.).

Also have a look in the Open Baseband project
Which b nature also must deal with SIM cards.
