After doing a factory reset on my phone, I reinserted the SIM card into the phone and I got a message suggesting that I import settings, messages, and contacts from my SIM card to my phone.

I know how to delete messages and contacts on the SIM card after importing them to the phone. My question is, how do I delete the settings from the SIM card?


A Subscriber Identity Module commonly known as SIM card has a storage for text (SMS) messages and contacts only. Settings (I presume you are talking about access points and GPRS/3G configuration - clarify it you mean something else) about your phone are not stored, except the carrier related parameters like message service center number, value added services codes etc.
