Duplicating a SIM card? Answered

Hi. I have an Iphone 5s with an AT&T SIM card. I will be going to sleep away camp at the end of this month. At camp, they allow you to keep your phones, but the head of the camp takes your SIM card so that you cannot call, text, or use the internet while you are at camp. This is going to be a big problem for me this summer because a lot is going on in my life at the moment, and I really need to keep in touch. I heard that it is possible to duplicate your SIM card. If this is true, I will sneak the duplicate card in. Ideally, I would like to be able to text/imessage, and be able to connect to the internet. I want to keep my same phone number. Additionally, once I leave camp, I would like to put my old SIM card in, as well as on field trip days while I am there (they give your SIM cards back for an hour on trip days.) I feel like this plan could definitely work if I execute it properly. I already have a plan to make sure no body finds out, so that part is settled. However, I read somewhere that switching between SIM cards can really screw up your phone. And b.) I heard that doing this is illegal and that doing this means AT&T will shut my phone service off permanently. I don't wan that to happen. If someone could answer my questions or tell me how to go about doing this, that would be great. Thx

Talk to your camp counsellors - if the stuff in your life is genuinely so important, they will make allowances.

Alternatively, they will help you see these issues at a more realistic, less emotional scale.

The camp rules are there for very real reasons, and should not be taken lightly. If you are caught, you will likely be sent home, without a refund, and that will help nothing.

They dont like two phones using the same sim card so they may deny your request. However you could find an old sim card and put it in the phone to turn and then keep the real sim card for later.

At your assumed age there can not be so many critical issues that you have to break rules to satisfy your own selfish demands.

If things were that bad you wouldn't be going.

Live for the moment. Enjoy life as it happens to you because it will all too soon be a whole new ball game and you won't have the time to enjoy when you have and what is around you.

Just possibly a little distance from your woes may give you a little more perspective on them.
