    You can buy widgets like this:

    SIM Reader and Writer : SIM Card Readers : Maplin Electronics

    I've never used one, and picked that particular link purely because it was the first one the search returned.

    Should still be able to bung it in a phone. AFAIK it's only the assosciation with the network that has been deactivated, hopefully meaning that your phone will still be able to read the contacts from it.
