This document describes the hardware interface of the SIMCOM SIM300 ... applications, all functional components of SIM300 are described in great detail. ...

sending mms using simcom

I think the easiest way to do this is to use a phone and the full functionality of the phone. Keeping in mind that what you want to do can be done pressing the buttons of the phone and that the phone buttons can be emulated by sending some AT commands, you can design a microcontroller board that sends AT commands to the camera-phone under program control. The phone takes pictures and sends the images via MMS to anywhere you like.

But mobile phones don't have built in TCP/IP stack whereas GSM/GPRS modules have.

Yes. That is why I said that you dont send the image by GPRS. You send it by MMS. It just be a matter of sending a few AT commands to press a few keys.

gsm camera project

hai all
the real problem here is the cost and the application
i want to get the photo/video of a place where i am fixing the system
and a camera phone with mms support will cost you more
and you will not get any type of project experiance
we here trying to something ourselves
assume a system in your office and you are out of town
when you want to check what is happening at your office,
you just can get it on ligin to the internet
or get pictures by sending an sms to the system

uart camera module

In that case you will have to have (1) a camera with a digital interface (b) a GPRS module like SIM300 and (c) a controller (8051 maybe slow for this application. The Camera portion seems to be the difficult part here since most digital cameras come with a USB port and have a USB host in a controller is somewhat difficult for a beginner. Also you will be able to control the camera like for taking pictures, going into video mode etc. On the other hand if you use an analog surveyllance camera, you will have to have a fast capture circuit and some picture / video buffer.

camera send gsm mms projects

dear friend

i found the camera here which can be directly connected to the television
and in a purticular channel you can see the motion pictures.ther are cameras with rs 232 out put also. there are two serial ports in sim 300.so i think i can connect one camera to one serial port and another for AT commands.when i want send pictures i will provide the command to capture the pictures and send it.
i think this can be done with 8051.this is just an idea of mine.you all are the experts
and you can guide me in a better way
we can select 8051/PIC/AVR controllers for this purpose.they are available here

How will you program the SIM300 to communicate with the serial port of the camera. It looks simple in hardware but I think you will have a hard time trying to get the camera RS-232 protocol details and to program the SIM300 to communicate with Camera on the second serial port. I have not seen any AT commands that can do this.

sending pictures through gsm modules

i think using a cheap mobile phone like chenese one is the best option, because they are cheap and can be controlled using AT commands easily. also they provide you to omitt many complexity of design and implimentaion.

I found this document about the SIM 306 that support MMS. This pdf explain the funtions and applications with examples.
Following functions are provided by Sim306:
(1) Download MMS subject, picture and text to module from serial port
(2) Query the status of download
(3) Set and save recipients of MMS
(4) Set the URL of multimedia message switch center(MMSC)
(5) Manage MMS box
(6) Send MMSain
