If you want to use a real SIM-card in the phone, you need to use the 
sylvain/testing branch (git checkout sylvain/testing), and you need to 
tell mobile it should use a real SIM as well by adding "sim reader" to 
your osmocom.cfg.

This is normal for now, since we don't have working BTSAP.

Nothing to add. Create this file and then save the config via the vty.
(telnet localhost 4247 -> "enable" -> "configure terminal" -> "write")
