I live the wrong side of the pond to offer specific advice, but I have used a variety of 'pay in advance' sim cards without problem. As long as they work in a 'phone, they work in the shield.

Thank you for your reply.
I used WIND and CHAT-R without pin number and the GSM stuck in first command "SMS Messages Sender" . When I try some pin number like 1234 or 0000 then it goes through commands and print "Not connected".
I thought , maybe the SIM card has problem??!!!
Any suggestions ???

it took me a long time to find it so I'm glad to pass it on.
now if you can tell me how to port outlook or gmail to the com port and send my email messages by txt that would be great.

thanks for your reply. It works with Fido :)  but I am still in trouble to send data.

I had no experience to work with GSM shield. Sorry I can not answer your question.  :smiley-sad:
