Is It Illegal to Clone a Phone?
The answer to this question isn’t straightforward since it depends on the country you are from.
Some carriers may restrict their services if you clone your phone.
Cloning other people’s phones can be either immoral or illegal — that depends on how you got access to the cloned phone.
Prepare Your Phone Before Cloning
Before the cloning process starts, make sure to back up all vital information, such as contacts, photos, videos, etc.
Android has a backup system, while Apple uses iCloud.
If you want to be 100% sure that no information will be lost, use an additional device to transfer all your data.
Depending on the service provider, you might need to ask for a new SIM card for the cloned phone.

How to Clone a Phone Remotely Using Bluetooth?
‘How can I clone my Android phone?’ is what most people search for, apart from Apple phone cloning tips.
Both Android and iOS operating systems use Bluetooth, so it is not difficult to use Bluetooth to clone a cell phone, especially if that phone hasn’t been updated recently.
First, make sure that your phone and the target phone are close to each other.
Download a Bluetooth hacking tool on your cell phone — Super Bluetooth Hack 1.08 is a good choice. The tool could ask you for a password; if that happens, try 1234 or 0000.
Once you type the password in, connect your phone to the target device.
The Bluetooth system will allow you to access the target device’s data (call logs, text messages, and so on) without touching it.
How to Clone a SIM Card Remotely?
To clone a SIM card remotely, you will first need to:
- Buy a blank SIM card and SIM Firmware Reader.
- After that, download MagicSIM and USB SIM Card Reader on your device.
- Put the target SIM card in the reader, open MagicSIM, and click on the Reader option.
- After connecting, click on Crack SIM and select Strong KI before pressing Start.
- After the cracking process is done, save the information as a new file.
NOTE: To prevent your file from getting corrupted, don’t forget to click on the Disconnect button. After completing all the steps, put the SIM in your phone.
The next steps are easy:
- Go to Settings and select Unlock SIM (Note that maybe you’ll need to get the unlock code from your provider).
- Insert the blank SIM card and open the USB SIM Card Reader.
- When you click on Connect, there’ll be no information found, so you need to select Write to SIM option and the .dat file from earlier.
- Click on the Start button and the entire process will be done in 10 minutes.
How to Clone a Phone Number?
Cloning a phone number means that you can use the same number on numerous devices.
You can easily do this by accessing the secret menu on the target device and getting phone codes and the model type.
You can find the phone’s hack code on the Internet.
Entering that hack code into the target device will take you to a secret menu with a serial number you need to write down.
Once you do that, enter the original hack code into your phone and repeat the step with the serial number on your phone.
Then, replace the two serial numbers. This allows you to use both the number of the cloned phone and your phone number at the same time.
Other Ways to Clone a Phone
If you don’t like any of the previously mentioned methods for cloning phones, don’t worry — there are other options.
For example, you can restore backup files and download them to another device. This could be a bit tricky since you’ll need some tools and there isn’t a cell phone cloning software to help you here.
You’ll need to get a backup file of the target device (for iPhone, this means having the Apple ID and password).
Then, you’ll need another tool to restore the files and clone the data.
Finally, you’ll have to take advantage of a third-party data recovery tool. This is also tricky since it requires you to repeat the whole process every time you want to access new files.
Clone a Phone Number Using a SIM Cloning Tool
This cloning method is relatively easy since you only need to buy a SIM card reader that will duplicate the information from one SIM to the other.
When you remove the SIM, pay attention to the IMSI code.
Next, insert the SIM into the reader and retrieve a unique authentication code.
Connect the original SIM to the reader and then to your PC — that will get you your code automatically.
Pay attention to the details and wait for the process to finish.
