This paper presents a solution how the position of a mobile device can be determined using the SIM card. These solutions require changes in the existing infrastructure of the GSM system in one way or another, and are based on information residing in the network. Sim card is integrated for providing basic services related to security, privacy, and trust. As the market for cellular telephones, and other mobile devices, keeps growing, the demand for new services arises to attract the end users.
