Hello Everyone. 

I have a netduino Plus 2 and want to use a GSM shield with this. Can anyone recommend a good one? I have tried this stuff in the past but it is difficult to get the SIM chips setup to log into the a network. 


They require seting up a user pin  "****" of four numbers and all kinds of stuff to setup the SIM chip for the first time.


Does anyone have a step by step for this? If I am able to setup the SIM chip and the shield, I can do some demos of the possibilities. 


Please let me know soon. I have one modem but I do not have the model number with me to list it. I got it on the Arduino website. I hope that it is compatible with this Netduino.


I also have another question. Suppose I wanted to make a product? How would I get the code ready for manufacturing? Once I prove the concept and want to use .NET how hard would it be at that point? The goal is to create my own thing.

Just need to make sure the shields you use are compatible with local network frequency bands etc.
