Prepare the header strip:Cut the strip to length if necessary. It will be easier to solder if you insert it into a breadboard - long pins down
Add the breakout board:Place the breakout board over the pins so that the short pins poke through the breakout pads
And Solder!Be sure to solder all pins for reliable electrical contact.
(For tips on soldering, be sure to check out our Guide to Excellent Soldering).
A battery and antenna is required! If you have a uFL FONA, a uFL->SMA cable may be required to connect the antenna. Use any Lipoly or LiIon 3.7V/4.2V battery
Snap the uFL connector on, it will click when placed properly
You must insert a SIM card to do anything but the most basic tests. FM radio does work without a SIM but of course you cannot send or receive texts, calls, etc!
Micro SIMs will not work! Make sure you get a "Mini SIM"
