The good news is that Spyic automatically deletes the app icon after you install it. As such, you don’t have to delete the icon manually, so there’s no possibility of human error, making it the most careful and discreet phone clone app in the market.

Part 4: How to Clone A SIM Card Within 2 Minutes

In this part of the article, we’ll show you how to clone a SIM card. But first, we need to answer a few questions you might have regarding the process.

Is it REALLY Possible to Clone a SIM Card?

It’s completely possible to clone a SIM Card by extracting the secret codes from the card and entering it into a blank smart card. The operator’s authentication of the SIM is based on these codes, which is why transferring them to another blank card can help you fool the operators. This technique basically takes advantage of a little glitch in the GSM technology.

However, not all SIM cards can be cloned. Only some. There are basically three types of SIM card algorithms – COMP128v1, COMP128v2 and COMP128v3. Currently, COMP128v1 is the most popularly used SIM card algorithm, and lucky for us that’s the only one which can be cloned.

Now read on to learn how to clone SIM card easily!

Once they give you the unlock code, enter it and Unlock the SIM card.

Part 5: How to Clone A Phone Number Easily

In this part of the article, we’ll show you how to clone a phone number. Now, for those who are wondering what it means to clone a phone number, cloning a phone number basically gives you the ability to use the same number on multiple devices at once.

Hackers can also use this technique to make calls with someone else’s number without even having their phone OR their SIM card.

There are two effective ways to clone a phone number easily. We’ll go through both of them below.

Clone a Phone Number Using a Secret Menu

You can clone a phone number by accessing the secret menu on the target device and entering the retain codes for the phone and its model type. If you find this confusing, just follow these steps:

  1. Go to a site like and enter your smartphone’s model details. You’ll get the phone’s hack code.
  2. Enter the hack code into the phone whose number you want to clone.
  3. You’ll be taken to a secret menu wherein you’ll see a serial number. Take note of this number.
  4. Now enter the original hack code into another phone without a cellular network on which you want the cloned number to work. Retrieve the serial number from that phone’s secret menu as well.
  5. Now replace the serial number from step 4 with the serial number from step 3. You can change this number by retrieving a number changer code from
  6. Now you can change the clone phone’s number to match the number of the target phone and you can use both of them simultaneously.

Clone a Phone Number Using a SIM Cloning Tool

You can also clone a phone number using a SIM cloning tool. However, for this you’ll need a SIM card reader as well. You can find the device in the market easily. The reader basically copies the target phone’s Mobile Subscriber Identity onto itself so it becomes a duplicate of the original SIM. Just follow these steps:

  1. Remove the target phone’s SIM card and note down its IMSI code. Sim
  2. Insert the SM card reader into the SIM slot to retrieve a unique authentication code. sim card reader
  3. Connect the original SIM to the SIM card reader and connect it to the PC. It will automatically get the authentication code. Now take note of the details and it will be a while for the duplication process to complete. Once that happens, you have a clone phone number!

Part 6: How to Clone A Cell Phone Text Messages

Cloning a cell phone’s text messages is extremely easy. You can do so by using the phone clone apps we mentioned in Parts 1-3.

Neatspy, mSpy, and Spyzie have the Text Message feature in their dashboards. As such, when you tap on that, you’ll get a complete log of all the target phone’s text messages (sent, received, and deleted), which you can then download into another phone.

Part 7: How to Tell If Your Phone Has Been Cloned

Since cloning a phone is so easy, you might be concerned that someone else might have cloned your phone as well. If so, you can check if your phone is cloned through these methods:

  1. Request your network provider for your cell phone records. Go through all of the outgoing calls and data usage to make sure that you can identify all of it. If calls are being made to strange numbers, it’s likely that someone has cloned your phone number.
  2. If you find some irregularities in your phone’s records, you can take your phone to the cell phone provider and ask them to run a diagnostic test on it. If there’s some bugs or if it has been hacked, you’ll find out.
  3. Enter your phone number into the search engine and see if it shows up in any unrelated link that you’re not aware of.
  4. Call your own cell phone number and see if someone receives the call. If so, it means that your SIM has been cloned.


As soon as you suspect that your phone has been cloned, you should do the following:

  1. Check all your credit card statements and make sure no one has been using it.
  2. Change your PIN and passwords to all your accounts.
  3. Contact your network provider and report the issue to them.


So now you know all about the best ways to clone a phone number, SIM, card, and text messages. When it comes to cloning the phone without touching it, my personal recommendation is to use Neatspy as it’s reliable, reasonable and has a strong set of features. mSpy, in comparison, is too expensive. And Spyzie isn’t as reliable or well reputed.

As we have already mentioned earlier, you can only clone iPhone’s without touching the phone at all. If you want to clone an Android phone, physically accessing it is absolutely necessary.

Spyzie, Neatspy, and mSpy can help you clone a phone’s contents, including the text messages. However, these apps can’t be used to clone the phone number of SIM card. To that, you’ll either have to use the Secret Menu method, or you’ll have to clone the SIM card into a blank card as illustrated in Parts 4 and 5.

Finally, if you suspect that your phone might have been cloned or hacked by someone, follow the steps and precautions listed out in the final part of this article.
