Would you like to call internationally from your mobile phone without having to pay the high per minute rates from your cell carrier or manually having to use a calling card and remembering to actually use the card in the first place?  Using the RebelSim Dialer Call through SIM, you can have your phone automatically intercept outgoing international calls to instead first dial your calling card access number, send the number you actually dialed, and ultimately connect your call at a cheaper rate (calling card rate + local minute rate from your carrier as opposed to international rate from your carrier).

What is it and how does it work?

What this device essentially allows you to do is have outgoing calls that start with either 00 (international), 1, or just 0 be automatically dialed through a calling card or VoIP access number instead of direct.   This paper thin device actually fits between your SIM card and your phone in order to “capture” what you are dialing, then dials the access number first when necessary:

rebelsimcard rebelsimcard2

Usually, when dialing internationally direct from your mobile phone, you will be charged fairly high rates per minute from your carrier such as £1.45/min calling from Tesco UK to US or $1.49/min calling from AT&T US to UK.  Then, of course, you have local calls which will either be part your monthly minute plan or generally a much cheaper per minute rate.

With international calls, you can traditionally get around these higher rates by using a calling card with a local access number that you can call as a “local number” from your cell phone (UK landline numbers if you live in the UK or any US number if you live in the US).  Then, dial the international number through your calling card and get charged “local minute rates” from your cell carrier plus whatever international rates you get from your calling card.

For example, say I wanted to call home to the states from my mobile phone in the UK.  Normally I would dial 001 999 999 9999, with the “00” meaning international, “1” meaning the states, followed by the number.  With my particular cell carrier (Tesco), this would cost me £1.45 per minute, but with my calling card, it would cost me £0.01 per minute – quite a big difference! Using the Rebel Sim Call through SIM, it will see that the number starts with 00 and it will instead dial the access number for my calling card when I press send to dial that international number.  Once the phone has dialed my card’s access number, it is then able to automatically send the digits (via DTMF*) of the number I actually dialed thus completing the international call via my calling card as opposed to directly from my mobile carrier.  My call will now cost £0.01 per minute plus minutes from my monthly minute plan as opposed to £1.45p per minute.

(* less technical explanation:  Think about how you normally use a calling card. You call the calling card number, it prompts you for the number you want to call, and then it connects the call.  The RebelSim Call through SIM automates this process by “seeing” that you dialed 00, then dialing the calling card number, pauses, and then dials the original out going number)

How to setup:

  • First off, this won’t work if you are using a micro SIM – sorry iPhone 4 users – because the RebelSim is of “normal” SIM size, but it will work for anyphone that uses a normal size SIM.  Also, the latest (v2) firmware also does not support entering an ID or pin number, so you’ll need a provider that works by caller ID (you call the access number, and it recognizes your caller ID for authentication for your account); that being said, v2.1 will be released soon which will allow the use of an ID/pin, as well as additional configuration options than the ones discussed later on below.
  • What you have to do first is punch a “hole puncher” size hole in the top plastic part of your SIM card. This is for the chip on the Rebel Sim Call through SIM to fit in between your phone and your normal SIM (you can either buy a RebelSim cutter, or use your own hole puncher).  Don’t worry, it’s just plastic on the top of your SIM card – it won’t damage anything and you can still use it even if you are not using the RebelSim.

  • Then, of course, you need to put them in your phone.  The manual suggests putting the Rebel SIM in first, then sliding your normal SIM in on top of it – I’ve found it easier at times to just put them in together at the same time, but I suppose it’s just a matter of how easy/hard it is to access your SIM slot
    in the phone
  • Next, you’ll need to have a calling card or VoIP service that has an access number.  Any calling card has an access number, as that’s how they’re setup to work, but not all VoIP providers have one.  Personally, I use a VoIP provider as they usually don’t charge connection fees, their rates are easy to understand, and they can be used with a SIP/Soft phone as well.   I personally use VoipFone (rates and access numbers) as they allow pin-less usage but there are plenty of others such as Call Centric (rates andaccess numbers) if you are in the States and  VoipTalk (rates and access numbers) in the UK (once v2.1 comes out for the RebelSim Callthrough).

    Note:  which ever calling card or VoIP provider you use must have an access number that doesn’t require you to use a pin since the current firmware of Call Through only supports dialing the access number.

  • And last, you need to add the access number and configure the options on the Rebel Sim.  When you turn on your phone with the RebelSim, you should see a new menu option.  On my Pirelli DP-L10 wifi phone, you can see this on the main menu, with other phones it will probably show up in different locations but either way a new option will appear somewhere and will have the same configuration options/steps: 
    with rebel

    Select the new RebelSim option and you will be brought to the configuration page with the following options: 
    – Disable (don’t use the RebelSim) 
    – *Enable (use the RebelSim) 
    – Editing Number (edit the access number) 
    – Dialing Rules (4 options on when to use the RebelSim: when there is a 00, 1, or 0 in the beginning of the dialed call, or use it always) 
    – Dialing Speed (this is basically how fast the number is dialed once the access number is called – I haven’t had an issue using it on “Fast”) 
    – Dialing Mode (two options, don’t really know what it means, but ICC2 is said to be needed for the iPhone, and ICC1 works on my Pirelli phone)

    All you should have to mess with here is the Editing Number and Dialing Rules.  Select Editing Number to change the access number and Dialing Rules to determine when the RebelSim should be used.  For my particular usage, I use Dialing Rule “00” to use for international calls and Editing Number “02070990707” as the access number for VoipFone.co.uk.

    Then, dial out!  In the picture below, you can see that I dialed a random international US number (001 770 123 4567), and when I pressed send, you can see that the phone automatically called the access number instead (02070990707): 
    dial internationalOnce the call is connected, you hear a dial tone from the speaker (which is VoipFone saying it’s ready for a number to connect to).  After a couple of seconds, the dial tone goes away which is when the RebelSim dials the number I actually entered (you don’t actually hear anything until you hear ringing which means the number you dialed is ringing) – and that’s it, you just made a cheaper international call from your mobile phone.

Final thoughts:

Using the Rebel Sim Callthrough SIM is a great way to make dialing international numbers from your cell phone cheap and easy.  Could you simply remember to dial the access number and skip the use and purchase of the RebelSim?  Yep!  Could you opt to just use a smartphone app to use a data connection and use Voip?  Yep!  That being said, I like the idea of this “working in the background” because I could then give it to a friend, family member, etc and not have to explain to them how to make international calls or have to worry about someone, or myself, accidentally making an expensive £1.45/min call.

Another useful aspect about this particular Rebel Sim (“Rebel Sim II”) is that you can load 3 different types of firmware on it (providing you have one of their programmers):  the Call Through (v2), Call Back (v3), or their HTC unlocking firmware (v1).  Plus for £7 + shipping (worldwide), it’s not too bad of a deal!

Pros:

  • Set it up and forget it approach for cheap international calls from mobile phones
  • Cheap
  • Will work with any phone that uses regular size SIM cards (the phone can be locked or unlocked, from anywhere in the world, on any carrier, etc)
  • Can be repurposed with 3 different firmwares ( one for call through, one for unlocking HTC phones, and the other a different approach for cheap mobile calls)
  • Simple to configure

Cons:

  • Latest firmware does not allow to use access numbers that require you to enter a PIN or ID number to use (though it can with firmware v2.1, which is to be released soon)
  • Can be a bit tricky to sandwich it with your existing SIM card and push into the SIM slot on some phones
  • Doesn’t work with micro SIM cards (won’t work with iPhone 4)

How to unlock AT&T Dell Streak and use it on T-Mobile

Streak-unlock-tmo (1)

Good news, T-Mobile customers. The AT&T Dell Streak can now be unlocked in a matter of seconds with the Rebel Sim II. I had tried many, many times to unlock the Streak with this card in the past, but what made it work this time is the firmware.

Version 1.2 of the firmware was released two weeks ago, and I can confirm that it is able to unlock the AT&T-locked Streak for use with T-Mobile (voice and EDGE). The Rebel Sim II does not void your warranty because it doesn’t modify any software orpermanently unlock the device; once you remove the card, the Streak is back to its AT&T-only state. Put it back in with your T-Mobile SIM, and it’s unlocked for T-Mobile again. Take it out and your Streak is locked to AT&T.

Want to use your official AT&T Streak with T-Mobile (and other carriers)? Here’s how to do it.

1. Buy the Rebel Sim II or You can buy it with the SIM cutter too if you want,

Streak-unlock-tmo (5)

2. Punch a hole at the top of your T-Mobile SIM card. It doesn’t affect the card’s usability (you’re just punching through useless plastic) and the hole doesn’t have to be precise.

Streak-unlock-tmo (6)

All you need to do is make sure the black square on the Rebel Sim II is exposed when the cards are stacked. That little chip is the source of the magic.

Here’s a more technical explanation:

“The Rebel Simcard has an IC on the FPCB and this intercepts some of the communication between the network simcard and phone and enables the use of other network simcard’s in a otherwise locked phone.”

Streak-unlock-tmo (7)

3. Slide the stacked cards into the Streak’s standard SIM slot. They won’t stay together very well on their own, so you can use a small piece of tape on the edge if you can’t get them in correctly. There’s very little room for imperfection when inserting the cards (i.e., they really need to be lined up correctly for this to work), so be patient and keep trying.

Streak-unlock-tmo (4)

4. Once the two cards are inserted, put the Streak’s battery back in, replace the back cover, and turn it on. If the cards are in correctly, you’ll see T-Mobile in the status bar as soon as the Streak boots up and prepares the SD card. If you don’t see it, take the cards out and try again.

And that’s it.

Streak-unlock-tmo (3)

I’ve got Android 2.1 on my official AT&T Streak, and it works with no problems on T-Mobile.

Streak-unlock-tmo (2)

After I removed the Rebel Sim II and T-Mobile SIM card, I put my AT&T card back in and it was like nothing had happened.

Streak-unlock-tmo (8)

I’m back on AT&T and fully locked to the carrier until the next time my Rebel Sim II wants to take a ride in the Dell Streak.

If you already have a Rebel Sim II card with the old firmware, you can download the new firmware and load it onto the card with a compact programmer.
