SIM Change Alert via SMS on Nexus 5

Nov 9, 2014

Is there a SIM change alert feature on Nexus 5? The one which sends an SMS to pre-configured numbers if the SIM card is changed.

I am looking for an in-built feature and not an app which can uninstalled on performing a factory reset.

Please let me know. Thanks
Not that I'm aware of, or at least I've never gotten a message when switching SIM cards.

I have Sprint as a carrier, and I know they have to register the phone on their networks first before switching SIM cards will do anything other than preventing my phone from working. I imagine you could (with quite a bit of effort) hack a phone to get it to change carriers, depending on the carrier, etc.

In effect though, all the SIM card is for me is another set of authentication strings.
If you are rooted, you can install cerberus app to the system partition and it won't get removed with a factory reset. It does have the email /sms notification upon change in sim card.
Thanks guys!!
I'll wait for the phone's warranty to expire before I root my phone and install cerebrus to the system partition.

Nexus devices are more or less intended to be rooted, and I don't believe rooting the Nexus 5 voids its warranty. There are some very easy was to go about doing it, even keeping everything nice and stock (what I prefer) but with the added functionality and customizability that rooting provides. I've done this with three different Nexus 5s so far without any issues:
