SIM900 GSM GPRS shield is based on a chip of SIM900 from SIMCOM and is compatible with Arduino and its clones. It is used to make and receive phone calls, send and receive SMS and connect to the internet using the GPRS network via UART using AT commands. It supports quad-band and can communicate through GSM 850 MHz, GSM 900 MHz, DCS 1800 MHz or PCS 1900 MHz networks. It has a power jack along with a toggle switch to use an external power supply.

SIM900 shield can be powered by a 5V power supply that can provide 2A current, or 9V 1A or, 12V 1A supply. It is equipped with a microphone and speakers jack for phone calls. At the backside of the shield, there is a sim card jack and a holder for a 3V CR1220 battery for the RTC (real-time clock). After insertion of sim and battery, the shield can be mounted on top of the Arduino board.

Not the best experience.

The first SIM900 was working yet disconnects after the first call, forcing me to reset. Regardless of troubleshooting, I was left with no other choice than to visit the shop asking for a replacement. Gladly, the team were supportive, and gave me another SIM900 to test, which was also defective, and did not read the SIM card at all. The store offered one more, unsealed, dusty and a bit rusty. It is functional though, except for the status LED, which does not turn on. I had to go with this option, while promised that an engineer will contact me regarding this issue, but never did.
Generally, I have a functional SIM900 now, but the experience was frustrating and time consuming. (Around 1 week in total)
