This is a device thats a lot like a USB memory card reader, but it reads the contacts on a SIM card from a phone. It comes with a Mini CD inside with software to read, copy, and write to SIM cards. This way if you get new phone service, or upgrade SIM card for higher capacity, you can transfer and backup all your contacts.
