Android phone used as a GSM shield for arduino

Here my another video showing how to use app inventor and bluetooth communication to interface an arduino board and an android device. This time I am showing how to use the texting function in order to turn the phone into a free GSM shield for arduino.

If you want more general information on interfacing the two, setting it up and want to see more examples - check my earlier instructable ->
Wiring and code is the same as in that example the only difference is the app.

The app can be downloaded here -> https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_PfPoEotOF8LXpxMi1ucm5RNGs/edit?usp=sharing

The source file (allows you to easily modify the app) -> https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_PfPoEotOF8N2JwT3RSX011SjQ&usp=sharing

<p>Hi much awaited circuit here I would like to ask a question pertaning to what I am planning to make after 2 weeks or so once I have finished reading my big fat electornic books to start it all over again after 5 years :D ok so this is what I want to ask you that is it possible to receive Sms on mobile due to a triggered event like suppose there is a Gas Lekage in my house where I have interfaced Mq-6 sensor to my Arduino and when it gets triggered the buzzer will sound Alarm and subsequently sms should be gone to the users mobile Many thnx for your advice :) </p><p>Sachin </p>
yes, that's precisely how you can use it - you can both receive and send text messages as well as make phone calls
