In particular, the present invention relates to a plurality of SIM / UIMs in a mobile communication terminal. The present invention relates to a mobile communication terminal that can be inserted and optionally used by a user selectively connecting the corresponding SIM / UIM.

The mobile terminal is an electronic serial number (ESN) for communicating with a base station in an electrically erasable programmable read only memory (EEPROM) inside the mobile terminal in the case of an advanced mobile phone service (AMPS) / code division multiple access (CDMA) scheme. serial number) or store the electronic serial number in a smart card to separate it from the mobile communication terminal to issue, manage, and operate, and include various functions such as prepaid card including encryption and decryption as well as electronic serial number. SIM / UIM is being introduced.

Such a smart card SIM is specified in GSM 11.11 of the GSM (global service for mobile communication) method applied by European mobile communication, and in the case of CDMA system of Qualcomm of the United States, R through CDG (CDMA development group) The UIM standard is specified, and the SIM / UIM standard that is compatible with the GSM method is applied to the CDMA method which promotes the service in China with the GSM method.

The GSM method stores an electronic serial number stored in a memory device mounted inside a mobile communication terminal in a SIM that can be separated from a socket in the mobile communication terminal, and uses an algorithm including encryption and decryption of voice communication contents as a smart card. By implementing the SIM, the mobile communication terminal adopting the AMPS / CDMA scheme could fundamentally solve the problem of the expected mobile communication service such as easily copying and stealing the stored electronic serial number.

As such, the SIM which can be separated from the mobile communication terminal has the advantage that it is almost impossible to forge because it uses a smart card as a medium, and since the smart card medium itself has excellent security, it is used as a prepaid means of communication charges. In addition to prepaid means, SIM could add the ability to recharge prepaid money in banks in conjunction with the next generation of credit and debit cards, the europay-master-visa (EMV).

Since SIM / UIM has begun to be used as a means of payment for mobile telecommunications, SIM / UIM issued by regional telecommunication service providers is suitable for payment of service charges used in the region, but it is long-distance and international beyond the area of use of SIM / UIM. When using a telephone, a high service fee is charged, and the user has to purchase and use a SIM / UIM separately for each service area.

That is, since only one SIM / UIM can be inserted into the mobile communication terminal, it is inevitable to use multiple SIM / UIMs. If you move out of the service area directly from the mobile carrier that issued the SIM / UIM and move to another area, the user must insert and use the SIM / UIM issued by the mobile carrier in that region. There was only inconvenience.

The present invention is to solve the above problems, it is possible to insert a plurality of SIM / UIM in the mobile communication terminal, the user of the plurality of SIM / UIM through the bidirectional switching gate controlled by the command of the terminal keyboard desired SIM / UIM An object is to provide a mobile communication terminal that can be selected and used.
