"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What is the format of the access logs? And how is MSISDN differentiated from other log entries?

so I need to catch uid="" and print it
If you want to extract uid=<sometihing> part from the line and print it, try
grep logfilename | sed 's/.*\(uid=.*mycingular\.net\).*/\1/'
