  • Open Mobile API – Test Specification v1.0 – Errata Note
    During the review of the SIMalliance Test Specification v1.0 by the GSMA and GlobalPlatform, several points were raised which required either an update of the test cases or additional clarification on the expected behaviour from the devices or from the test tools implementing the test specification. This document summarises all the changes; the changes will also be integrated into the next SIMalliance Test Specification document. The document shows revision marks to indicate the new applicable content (and only the new content).
