The IMEI is read from the module, so I dont think the SIM card would matter for that.
Did you have the software serial selected(jumpers) as shown in the image?(see link)

My jumpers were not like the ones in the picture. I thought the shield came by default in software serial. I changed my jumpers and still have the same errors with modem test and AT command tester
Starting modem test…ERROR, no modem answer.
Checking IMEI…Error: Could not get IMEIAugust 15, 2013 at 2:40 pm #5106

What is the status of LEDs – Power-on indicator, Status indicator and Net indicator?
LED Status Function
Power-on indicator(Green) Off Power of GPRS Shield is off
On Power of GPRS Shield is on
Status Indicator(Red) Off Power off
On Power on
Net indicator(Green) Off SIM900 is not working
64ms On/800ms Off SIM900 does not find the network
64ms On/3000ms Off SIM900 finds the network
64ms On/300ms Off GPRS communicationAugust 15, 2013 at 3:29 pm #5110
I have the Power LED(green) on
I have the Status Indicator(red) on
I have the Net Indicator(green) blinking at every 300 msAugust 15, 2013 at 3:39 pm #5112
its actually more like every 800msAugust 15, 2013 at 3:46 pm #5113
I think the software serial should be the one on the left.
On the wiki page, the location of the jumpers change after the boards are stacked…
So far what I’ve done is loaded this code onto my arduino (without gprs)
SoftwareSerial mySerial = SoftwareSerial(2,3);
Then i connect my gprs and attempt to use your AT Tester and it gives me the above mentioned errors. Is there anything im missing? is there a reason why we’re using pins 2 & 3 for tx and rx? shouldnt we be using
D7: Used as RX of software serial port
D8: Used as TX of software serial portAugust 15, 2013 at 4:05 pm #5114
The baud rates should match..
Serial.begin(19200); h/w serial port
mySerial.begin(19200); s/w serial port
The SIM900 module should be configured for the same baud and you should choose teh same rate in the AT Command Tester as well…
If SIM900 is not configured for above baud rate, then you should try different rate in the in the shield and reload..August 27, 2013 at 5:35 am #5993
