    Anybody have luck getting this thing to talk at anything other than 115200? Like using the +IPR command? I wonder if it stores the current BR on the SIM or if it forgets the BR…

    Never paid much attention to “sewable” electronics before - guess I’m the sort that would want to merge my car or something like that with the stuff I build instead.
    Pondering the Lilypad concept, however, with all this exposed electronics, how does this stuff deal with static electricity - seems to me if you sewed this stuff onto some nice polyester, you could build up quite a charge, especially in the winter. Snap, and it’s dead.
    I see a lot of folks working with this stuff, I wonder what the failure rate is…

    Everything you would want to know is here - the company is mentioned in the datasheet.
    http://www.autosplice.com/compliant-press-fit/#link_nine
    These are designed to be press fit - as the name implies.

    I wanted to use them for an ICD header - I found that if I took my Panavise and used the soft pad for the back and the hard paddle for the pins, I could very carefully press the header into the board.
    I too am worried about what kind of scarring of the through hole plating might occur though.

    It would be nice to have just the board or the board without the camera module available for those of us that already bought the modules… I have three!
