Connectors:
 
*Headset jack-This is a 'standard' TRRS 3.5mm phone headset jack with stereo earphone and mono microphone. Any 'iPhone' or 'Android' compatible (but not iPhone original) should work.
 
*uFL GSM connector-This is the GSM Antenna connector, an antenna is required to use the SIM800F shield!
 
*SIM Connector:A 2G Mini SIM card is required to use the module. You can buy it in any cell phone shop. It must be a 2G GSM card.
 
*VRTC Battery holder:Power supply for RTC.
 
LEDs
 
*PWR –Power light
 
*Status – Power on status. Lit when the Cell module is booted and running
 
*NetLight – Network status. You can use this for checking the current state without sending an AT command
 
*64ms on, 800ms off - the module is running but hasn't made connection to the cellular network yet
 
*64ms on, 3 seconds off - the module has made contact with the cellular network and can send/receive voice and SMS
 
*64ms on, 300ms off - the GPRS data connection you requested is active
 
By watching the blinks you can get a visual feedback on whats going on.
 
POWER_KEY
 
*Power on or power off the SIM800F.
 
Pins usage on Arduino
 
*D0 - Used if you select hardware serial port to communicate with SIM800F
 
*D1 - Used if you select hardware serial port to communicate with SIM800F
 
*D7 - Used if you select software serial port to communicate with SIM800F
 
*D8 - Used if you select software serial port to communicate with SIM800F
 
*D9 - Used for software control the Power ON or Power OFF of the SIM800F
 
===Usage===
 
On its own, this shield can't do anything. It requires a microcontroller like an Arduino to drive it! You will also need some required accessories to make SIM800Fshield work.<br>
 
SIM Card! A 2G Mini SIM card is required to do anything on the cellular network. US AT&T no longer sells 2G SIMs and will shut off their 2G network, so for American customers we recommend any T-Mobile or reseller (TING, SIMPLE mobile, etc) that uses the T-Mobile network.

Introduction

The GPS Shield based on the SIM28 GPS module. It is a cost-efficient and field-programmable gadget. It features 22 tracking / 66 acquisition channel GPS receiver. The sensitivity of tracking and acquisition both reach up to -160dBm, making it a great choice for personal navigation projects and location services, as well as an outstanding one among products of the same price class.

Model: OAS028SIM

Power on the SIM800F shield by the POWER_KEY ( sometime you can control it by the software control ( Arduino D9 PIN))

Load Demo

SIM800F TCP Test

Open up File: SIM800F TCP Test.ino and upload to your Arduino wired up to the module.

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

SoftwareSerial mySerial(7, 8);
#include<stdio.h>
#include<string.h>

  pinMode(pon, OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(pon, HIGH);
  delay(3000);
  digitalWrite(pon, LOW);
  delay(1000); 
  Serial.println("After 3s, test begin!!");
  delay(3000);  
}

void loop()

    mySerial.println(command); 
    long int time = millis();   
    while( (time+timeout) > millis())
    {
      while(mySerial.available())
      {       
        char c = mySerial.read(); 
        response+=c;
      }

    if(debug)
    {
      Serial.print(response);
