STK - Sim Tool Kit accessibility

  1. Feb 15, 2014 #1
    Hi PF,
    In general, one can enable VAS (Value Added Services) provided by subscriber via the STK (Sim Tool Kit). However, I think its actually tedious to open the STK, select the required VAS, confirm your selection via SMS every time. I would like to know, if it is possible to automate some recurring VAS features using an Android/iphone app?

    Your best bet might be to check at http://xda-developers.com
    Post on the Q&A form for your phone or general android
    There's a chance that someone else has already someone has a 3rd party app that automates the process for you.

    Sorry for the late responses. Consider this case. I want to check my recharge my smartphone. For this I go to the nearest retailer and he will be using the following procedure
    1. Using dialer, I will be initiating *111# and the request is sent to my network provider
    2. after a couple of seconds, a pop-up with six options appear

    1 - To add Air-time
    2 - To add Data pack
    3 - To pay a bill

    Now, the retailer selects '1' and clicks 'Send' option.
    The next pop-up asks the retailer to Enter the Mobile number to get recharged. The retailer enters the numbers and hits 'Send'
    the next pop-up appears again to confirm the number. The retailer 'Confirms'
    the next pop-up is used to enter the air-time value to be added. Finally the retailer hits 'Send'

    My mobile finally gets recharged and I pay the retailer

    This recharge procedure in hard wired in the retailer's sim card. Now my query is if this process can be carried lot more easily using an mobile app?

    Thanks for the info. Will post my query even on XDA

    Thanks again
