To test SIM800C you need to insert a SIM card and install a GSM/GPRS antenna.
By default the FriendlyCore system FriendlyElec provides has a Python demo for testing SIM800C. Run the following commands to test it:
$ cd /root/Python/GSM-GPRS/sim800-test $ apt-get install python-pip $ pip install --upgrade pip $ pip install pyserial $ ./sim800c-test.py -h # Check help information ./sim800c-test.py -p <phone_number> -o <operator, cmcc> -w <website> $ ./sim800c-test.py -p 136xxxxxxxx -o cmcc -w www.baidu.com # Visit baidu.com
Option Comment -p specifies a telephone number for sim card. -o specifies a telecom operator. For example "cmcc" stands for China Mobile Communication Corporation. -w specifies a website to visit
