SIM800L V2 with arduino

SIM800L V2 tutorial with arduino

SIM800L V2 is a popular SIM module that easily used with Arduino. The version 2 has 5V pin enabled for power that make this module easier to use than the regular SIM800L.

You can buy this device at link below (affiliate link) :

In this tutorial, I will examine how to send SMS, receive SMS and make a call. You can find full video tutorial here :
