Pros:
This is actually a BenQ M32 GSM/GPRS Wireless module(Ref: http://www.sure-electronics.net/rf,audio/GP-GC006-pdf.pdf )
It's is the cheapest GSM module I've ever seen.
Simple to use, just use the AT Commands as discibed from BenQ ( http://www.portech.com.tw/data/BenQ%20M23%20AT.pdf )
And you are ready
Cons:
There is no extention USB cable supplied with this, so if you have a laptop it may be placed so that the USB dongle or USB port can be damaged.
Other:
None
Bottomline:
Buy this, it is the cheapest GSM module around.
