    Hi sir, i've got a weird problem. I follwed exact all the steps you did in the video, my APN is "internet" too (i've checked that on the internet for my simcard). But when i type GET command, i get SEND OK response, but NO message like "12" in your video. After that, i receive CLOSED response and nothing happend on the server. The ridiculous thing is that sometimes is possible to update data, and sometimes not (both have no message like "12" between SEND OK and CLOSED). Any idea? Thanks in advance.

    Do you have a rough idea how much data you use sending to Thingspeak using an http GET request? Lets say just two data fields. Is it just the number of bytes used in the url (around 100 bytes in my case) plus a few bytes for the response? I'm just trying to work out the cost to run my datalogger project continuously over the GSM network. Thanks for the great tutorial

    Check the apn of your operator. Most likely it is not connected to internet.
