This is really neat.  Where does the SIM card go?

Have a look at the second picture! It becomes a "belly-SIM"!

Btw. the Bluevia / Telefonica shield mentioned in reply #2 in this thread will be "available in the following days." -- This was a information from the BlueVia Community Support.

FWIW, I have had very good luck with the Seeedstudio version. Geekonfire also has a model.

Whatever module you want to consider, research the underlying chip and libraries! For the sim900 there are a number of libraries and examples out there that you can follow along. The AT manual also gives you the commands you'll need to use in order to start a GPRS connection, send an SMS, etc

Also, depending on where you live, it might make sense to use a M2M Sim card, ie one designed specifically for applications like this one.  I had good luck with the unit from embedded works.

Hi , see below picture that shows where the SIM card goes:

I asked BlueVia / Telefonica about the deliver date of the new Telefonica-Arduino-GSM shield again. Announcement / purchase see:
https://bluevia.com/en/page/tech.arduino

The really friendly support told me they had some problems with the launch and the release date got delayed. If everything goes as expected, the new release day is the 22nd October. I assume 2012, the year was not specified explicit. :-)
