What is MCC and MNC?

A Mobile Network Code (MNC) is used in combination with a Mobile Country Code (MCC) (also known as a “MCC / MNC tuple”) to uniquely identify a mobile phone operator/carrier using the GSM, CDMA, iDEN, TETRA and UMTS public land mobile networks and some satellite mobile networks. The ITU-T Recommendation E.212 defines mobile country codes. The MCC/MNC is part of the IMSI defining the country and provider – it’s often used to check if a certain card is allowed to be used in a certain mobile, many mobile phone carriers lock their phones so only their cards can be used in the phones they sell together with contracts or in a prepaid bundle. uaSIM can “emulate” any carriers card on this planet, the user is free to define any MCC/MNC combination by the pin code entry at power up. Even combination’s that do not exist (yet) ! Note that uaSIM is for repairs, testing and activation of mobile phones – also uaSIM is not able to log into any carriers network.

You can follow the below wiki link to find any MCC and MNC that you want to use for your uaSIM.
( For some carriers that have multiple MCC/MNC combination’s check if the networks are operational, non operational networks you normally won’t need )

      Hello Isaac,

      uaSIM is an activation sim, along with being a test card. From your text we get a feeling that you trying to unlock a network operator. uaSIM can activate the phone for you by entering the MNC and MCC code combination from the list of various network operator. The link to list is provided on the website. If in case, you are not asking for unlokcing and have some other query, please contact us back if you still not able to use uaSIM.
