Suggested Libraries

MKRGSM
The MKRGSM library together with the MKR GSM 1400 board allows you can do most of the operations you can do with a GSM phone: place and receive voice calls, send and receive SMS, and connect to the internet over a GPRS network. The on board module, operates in 3G with a 2G fallback.
ArduinoLowPower
The ArduinoLowPower library allows you to use the low power features of the SAMD21 MCU to minimize power consumption and maximize battery duration.
