What is ICCID?

ICCID is for Integrated Circuit Card Identifier. This is a unique serial number of your SIM card. ICCIDs are stored in the SIM cards and are printed on the SIM card during a personalization process. The ICCID is defined by the ITU-T recommendation E.118 as the Primary Account Number. A full ICCID is 19 or 20 characters.

Sometimes it happens that on the SIM card is printed only the last 13 digits of ICCID number. On this basis, the network operator is able to identify the card while an online checker may show incorrect check results.
