A GSM shield allows the Arduino to connect to a cellular network. This opens the door to many interesting solutions, especially outdoors.

You can for example control the Arduino with SMS messages and the Arduino can send back SMS messages.

I will upload an example tomorrow that shows how to work with the GSM shield.

Hi Etrel,
Is going to be different from the GPS/GPRS example in the tutorial forum?

Edit:
Just noticed this is about the GPRS (cellular network) while that one was about GSM (SMS)

I see the GSM chip is SIM900.. that's Quad Band and can work in US as well as everywhere. I will order
this board. I already have the Uno.

The GSM example is not based on any library. It sends AT commands to the GSM module. You can see the commands for the M10 here: http://www.quectel.com/UploadFile/Product/Quectel_M10_AT_Commands_Manual_V4.0.pdf

They look quite similar to the ones implemented in the example. Start with calling ATI and see whether it returns the any information.
ok,
but in the new version of b4r will be present this GSM LIBRARY with also the GPRS function for the webserver and client requests?
