I took the rear panel off the 993 today to replace the speakers, and found this Ericsson box, which had a sim card in it.

Any ideas what it is?

There are a couple of connectors taken out, but the black on remains. Assume its some kind of aerial but don't know where it goes to.

Also in the picture is a 16 pin connector that isn't connected to anything. What would this have been used for?



Cheers
Mike

It’s an anti theft tracker
