To make it work, you'll need to do a firmware upgrade. Use your preferred search engine to find the firmware file. I have version 1. On this module, there are two different ways to connect it to other circuits.

Learn how to send and receive SMS and how to make and receive phone calls with Arduino. You can use the preceding links or go directly to MakerAdvisor. By GSM we mean 2G. We recommend that you use a prepaid plan or a plan with unlimited SMS for testing purposes. Otherwise, if something goes wrong, you may need to pay a huge bill for hundreds of SMS text messages sent by mistake.

The shield uses the original SIM card size, not micro or nano. If you have micro or nano you may consider getting a SIM card size adapter. To use the SIM card with the shield, you need to turn off the pin lock. The easiest way to do this, is to insert the SIM card in your smartphone and turn off the pin lock in the phone security settings. Next to the power jack there is a toggle switch to select the power source.

Next to the toggle switch on the board, there is an arrow indicating the toggle position to use an external power supply — move the toggle switch to use the external power supply as shown above.

To power up the shield, it is advisable to use a 5V power supply that can provide 2A as the one shown below. It can also be powered with 9V 1A, or 12V 1A. You can find the right power adapter for this shield here. Make sure you select the model with 5V and 2A.

The figure below shows the back of the shield. The figure below shows the shield most important components on the board that you need to pay attention to. Make sure you select the external power source with the toggle switch next to the DC jack. See how to do that in the Automatically turn on the shield section, after the code examples. To test if everything is working properly, you can test the shield by sending AT commands from the Arduino IDE serial monitor.

For that, you need an FTDI programmer as the one shown in figure below. You can get an FTDI programmer like this here. Write AT at the box highlighted in red and then press enter.

See figure below. View raw code. Pin 7 is being set as RX and 8 as TX. To read incoming SMS, upload the code below to your Arduino. After uploading, wait 20 seconds for the shield to establish communication. The SMS is shown on the Arduino serial monitor — baud rate: You read the chars using the SIM To make the call, you use the callSomeone function that uses the ATD command.

In this code example, the call is hang up after 30 seconds, using the ATH command:. Hanging up after 30 seconds is not very useful, but it works well for an example. The idea is that you use the ATH command when an event is triggered. For example, connect a push button to the Arduino, that when pressed sends the ATH command to hang up the phone.

Try repeating the process by changing the TX with the RX pins. Also check if you have selected the software serial by placing the jumper cap on the appropriate place on the serial selector. However, if you need to change the shield baud rate, you can send the following AT command to change it to or other appropriate baud rate.

This tutorial shows you how to send and receive SMS and making and receiving phone calls with the Arduino. You can apply the concepts learned in this tutorial to build your own projects to communicate over a cell network. We have other projects that use GSM, check them below:. Great tutorial! Thanks, just what I need. Do you know if it is possible to feed the 5 volts from the Arduino? It seems a bit odd to me to use 2 separate powersupplies. In this specific module, accordingly to the data sheet, you need to connect D9 on the shield to D9 of the arduino and add the following snippet to your code, at the setup , that is equivalent of pressing the power button:.

Hi again. I forgot to mention that you need to solder the R13 connection in some shields. I added a section regard that subject in the guide — Automatically turn on the shield.

I hope this helps. I read that issue with R13, but even with the photo it is not clear to me what to solder. Is it possible to give a better description or a more detailed photo. Second question, what do recommend as batty power supply. I like to use these accus. My project is to change an old rotary dial phone into a mobile just for fun.

Hello from Germany. There are two tiny pins inside the R13 label. You should solder those pins to each other. However, keep in mind that if you have your shield always on, the batteries will drain in no time. Is there a way to make an internet connection with the GSM module?

Is this possible? HI, I would like to ask if somebody could post the pdf link of the datasheet for the SIM module. I have not been able to find on-line!. Hi Fredy. You can find a link to download at the SIM product page on Banggood.

Check the following link: files. Hi, i like this awesome tutorial. But it gives me some idea, please can you tell me if it may be possible to send one sms to a big number of phone numbers throught data bases?

I think it should be possible as long as your SIM card allows it. Regards, Sara. Is the FTDI required?? Hi Jan. It will work just fine with the Arduino. I bought a GSMa in first place, but that one did nothing at all.

I tried to change my SIM card but it still happen. If you get an OK response, your shield should be working properly. Sorry for my english, hope you understand what is the problem. Hi Peter. I understand your problem. Very helpfull. Great tutorial. Thank you. May be you have it? Thanks for beautiful guide. The only thing is that i can not send and receive sms with Extended characters. Hi Arnas. Take a look at this tutorial: playground.

I hope this helps, though. You need to create a variable to hold your temperature. Then, you need to convert that variable into a String. Finally, you just need to send that variable using the SIM For example: imagine you save the temperature on the Temp variable. You just need to do as follows: SIM Hi, I have problems getting the SIM shield to operate.

I power the SIM from a separate 60W power supply Trying to get the card to connect to the network, eveything is as described after pressing power on. However, it looks like the cards stops when it connects to the network. The NetLight turns off and does not blink anymore. I then have to remove power and start over for the power key to work again. Hi Tor.

Tutorial to Interface GSM SIM900A With Arduino

SIMA is a 68 terminal device as shown in pin diagram. We will describe the function of each pin below. The user should keep pressing the key for a short time when power on or power off the system because the system need margin time in order to assert the software. Right Channel input [External line inputs are available to directly mix or multiplex externally generated analog signals such as polyphonic tones from an external melody IC or music generated by an FM tuner IC or module. Current output for backup battery when the main battery is present and the backup battery is in low voltage state.


SIM 900A - GSM/GPRS Module

SIMA can search these two bands automatically. The frequency bands can also be set by AT Commands. The baud rate is configurable from through AT command. SIMA is an ultra compact and reliable wireless module. Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
