Title: Method of and system for emulation of multiple subscriber profiles on a single mobile phone in a wireless telecommunications network

Abstract: A method of and system for emulation of multiple subscriber profiles on a single telephone in a telecommunications network. An identified group contains more than one subscriber profile. The system is activated when a user selects a subscriber profile to be associated with the telephone being used. In response to the selection, the system determines whether the selected subscriber profile is within the group. If it is, the system associates the selected subscriber profile from the group with the telephone, such that the telephone emulates the selected subscriber profile. If the selected subscriber profile is not within the group, the subscriber profile associated with the telephone is unchanged.
