TING GSM simcard. here is my referral code for TING: https://zki47f482jc.ting.com/
The MediaTek LinkIT One is an amazing board with loads of power, memory etc... but where it really stands out are its "sensors" this thing has GPS, GPRS,GSM,Bluetooth, Wifi and Lipo charging and monitoring on board along with being arduino compatible.
The Adafruit LCd backback is really cool. it allows you to add a screen and 5 buttons to any i2c compatible board using only 4 wires, i2c (2 wires) and power and ground. this makes it very easy to work with and add on to a project like this.
Ting is a pay as you use sim card with data, voice and SMS plans.
Step 2: Code

its the test code that comes with the MediaKit LinkIt One.

The only thing you need to do for the board is power off the board then put the sim in it.
It takes a standard sized sim and it goes in bottom down.
