Connect your Pi to the world's mobile networks! The Raspberry Pi GSM Board (SIM800) from ModMyPi is a SIM800 quad-band GSM/GPRS/BT module for use on the original Raspberry Pi 3 (not compatible with Pi 3B+ or 4 unless a GPIO riser is used).
The board is fully plug and play, and designed to interact with the Raspberry Pi via UART (Serial) for access to GSM/GPRS mobile networks. Please Note. You do require an active SIM card to access mobile networks (not included)!
The SIM800 IC is fully compatible with AT commands sent via the Pi's UART port, enabling functions such as sending and answering calls, sending and receiving text messages and accessing the internet. The board features speaker & microphone jacks, so it's fully possible to turn your Raspberry Pi into a mobile telephone communication device!
Some Python examples can be found here: https://github.com/modmypi/SIM800
The board is powered directly from the Pi's GPIO, and has hardware controlled on/off/reset button which can also be accessed (through use of a jumper cable) via the Pi's GPIO for software-controlled powering & resetting.
The package includes a fixed antenna and mounting hardware!
