Hi, to complete your list, I have a french Orange card bought in 2003 I think. Calls and SMS worked fine.
Maybe this link may help in something : http://www.forum.logos-et-sonneries-portable.com/1694_15-clone-iphone-cect-p168.html ?
My sim card has a 98 at the 4th and 5th position (with J2RE S). I don't know if it can help ?
