Arduino 2560 and Sparkfun's GSM 5100b Cellular Shield HELP

Hello Everyone,

I am using an Arduino 2560 and a GSM cellular shield I purchased at Sparkfun (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9607). My main goal is to access a website using TCP/IP. So far I have managed to establish socket connection but do not quite understand how to make an HTTP GET request using the GSM shield. 

My command are the following:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AT+CGATT?

AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","epc.tmobile.com"

AT+CGACT=1,1

AT+SDATACONF=1,"TCP","136.145.34.23",8080

AT+SDATASTART=1,1

AT+SDATASTATUS=1

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To this point I have established socket connection but am unsure as to how to execute an HTTP GET. My main goal is to visit : http://136.145.34.23:8080/Capstone/TesterGSM


Can someone please help me out ?

hey man im sorry to bother you, but I have a question myself. im very new to this shield. do you think its possible to use this shield for wireless communication with a computer for transferring data, without paying any money?

I know you can other shields like bluetooth and wireless shield, but the I want to be able to send texts with arduino incase of emergency.
