Hello Everybody,
So Apparently duplicating a SIM card is a hot topic nowadays, and apparently illegal in some places too. Personally, I'd just like to have a duplicate of my SIM for backup purposes, in the event my SIM goes bad, and it happened to be at 10:00 in the evening; it would be nice to have a backup for an emergency. I don't even know where a blank SIM card could be had...I've seen the "Super Sim" stuff, but this seems to be a rip-off.
Any ideas out there?

I know that duplicating a SIM is illegal in most countries, not to mention the US, as doing so could constitute fraud.

Illegal in the US? I thought it was OK here...

I believe it is illegal because using a cloned sim has the potential to activate a locked phone or at least that is my understanding of it.
