This file is present if Tag 'A9' is indicated in the reference file EF PBR.

The EF contains pointers to the different records in the files that are part of the phone book. The index administration file record number/ID is mapped one to one with the corresponding EF ADN (shall be record to record). The index administration file contains the same amount of records as EF ADN. The order of the pointers in an EF IAP shall be the same as the order of file IDs that appear in the TLV object indicated by Tag 'A9' in the reference file record. The amount of bytes in a record is equal to the number of files indicated in the EF PBR following tag 'A9'.

This EF contains ICE graphical information, according to TS 22.101.

This file shall be deactivated if the user does not wish the ICE information contained in this file to be available and activated if the user wishes the ICE information in this file to be available.

For this EF the Total File Size data object shall be present within the FCP template in order for the ME to fit the picture to the available memory.

This EF is located within the USIM application. The incoming call information can be linked to the phone book stored under DF TELECOM or to the local phone book within the USIM. The EF ICI contains the information related to incoming calls.

The time of the call and duration of the call are stored in this EF. This EF can also contain associated alpha identifier that may be supplied with the incoming call. In addition it contains identifiers of associated network/bearer capabilities and identifiers of extension records at the USIM ADF level. The structure of this EF is cyclic, so the contents shall be updated only after a call is disconnected.

If CLI is supported and the incoming phone number matches a number stored in the phone book the incoming call information is linked to the corresponding information in the phone book. If the incoming call matches an entry but is indicated as hidden in the phone book the link is established but the information is not displayed by the ME if the code for the secret entry has not been verified. The ME shall not ask for the secret code to be entered at this point.

Optionally the ME may store the link to phone book entry in the file, so that it does not need to look again for a match in the phone book when it reuses the entry. But the ME will have to check that the incoming call number still exits in the linked phone book entry, as the link might be broken (entry modified). When not used by the ME or no link to the phone book has been found, this field shall be set to 'FFFFFF'.

The first byte of this link is used to identify clearly the phone book location either global (i.e. under DF TELECOM) or local (i.e. USIM specific). To allow the reuse of the referring mechanism in further implementation of the phonebook under discussion, this byte can be used to indicate those.

There may be several image instance data files. Each Image Instance Data File contains data for one or more image instances.

Each record of this EF identifies instances of one particular graphical image, which graphical image is identified by this EF's record number.

Image instances may differ as to their size, having different resolutions, and the way they are coded, using one of several image coding schemes.

As an example, image k may represent a company logo, of which there are i instances in the UICC, of various resolutions and perhaps encoded in several image coding schemes. Then, the i instances of the company's logo are described in record k of this EF.

This EF stores the status of USAT Application Pairing checking.

This file shall be present if USAT Application Pairing is supported as defined in this specification.

The status flag of pairing check (with value "OK" or "KO") stored in the file EFIPS can be read by any terminal hosting the UICC. The information stored in the file EFIPS provides a mechanism to detect changes of association between a USIM and a MTC ME. The information stored in the file EFIPS can be read locally by e.g. the maintenance person.
