    Hi all! Just a heads-up to anyone using this module… I’ve seen people saying you need to use the command AT+SBAND=7 to tell the module it’s in the US. This isn’t a country code; it designates which frequency bands the module operates on. So check your provider! If you’re using T-Mobile, I believe you actually want AT+SBAND=8 for GSM900 and PCS1900. Hopefully this will save some pain.
    As far as the shield goes… when it works, it works well. The documentation is a bit poor, but once you find the ten commands you need to use most frequently, it gets better. There may be less expensive options out there, but this seems to be working for me now. Fingers crossed.
