Hello Friends,

I want to know how to send E-mail as well as MMS using Arduino GSM Shield.
SIM900D supports both but I am not sure if there is any document which shows each step that need to given to send E-mail or MMS.

Is there anyone who had worked on such projects?

Hi

A bit of google-fu has hopefully found some info you can use.

Firstly, if your shield does have the SIM900D chipset, then email appears to be a somewhat straightforward set of AT commands outlined here in the SIM900 Email AT Command Manual (PDF).  In the introduction paragraph it confirms the SIM900D conforms to this operation.  From a quick scan through, so long as you know your SMTP from your POP3 this should be helpful.

For MMS I think the answer is probably in sending an SMS in PDU mode (rather than text).  There's an explanation of what's possible here (I didn't read all 17 parts, but it looks to be pretty thorough).  And it appears many of the sites that talk about operation of the SIM900 based shields (like this one) can help you get an SMS started in PDU mode.

I've not done this, just hate seeing a 0-reply post...so hope something here can be of help to get you on the way, cheers ! Geoff

For Email, you can use www.smtp2go.com along with Wifly and Mifi from any provider.
I guess that's not what you asked...

I am also trying to send MMS using the SIM900. Sending SMS and MMS are totally different from my experience. MMS requires that you upload something to the module and my current problem is that I can't get the module to read what I'm putting on the UART. Perhaps I'm not putting data on the UART right, but yeah, I can't get MMS to go. If you figure it out could you post it in this thread or contact me please? ted_pham08@yahoo.com

Thanks and good luck!
