    Could someone with this board hook it up and let me know the current draw without any components installed? basically what does this thing pull off the battery while on.

    If anyone at sparkfun reads through these comments (I’m sure you will) Please pass this on: You guys rock. I hope to pass on the ideals you guys value onto the hackerspace I’ve started in town. I hope I can turn a few more capitalistic money mongers towards the idea that if you make something great, something that people will use, then the money might follow.. but to not be worried about it. I read somewhere “Let’s move away from ‘look what I can do’ and towards ‘look what I can teach you’ ”. I hope some day I can do what I love every day like you guys. Again, you guys rock!

    Works great in North Dakota with a $6 t-mobile prepaid sim, and the $15 a month plan with unlimited text and $.10 a minute(i’ll never use). Data won’t work as t-mobile doesn’t support data while roaming. haven’t had any hiccups at all, works great. Other than bricking the device with the sparkfun breakout board :D

    i ended up using a max3232 chip to connect directly to the board as apposed to using the breakout board from sparkfun, were you using the breakout board?
