I have been digging to find some info as to whether I can communicate between my XBee pro 900 and any of the SIM900 GSM cards that are out there.    Can anyone tell me if there is a GSM card out there that I can talk to with my 900MHz RF card? 

 

 

Thanks for reading!

Your questions makes zero sense. You should probably try to put more details. What kind of talking do you expect between them?

If I have 2 XBee pro 900's I can transmit data between the two of them.  I guess what Im looking for is a card with GPRS/GSM capabilities and can also recieve data from my XBee Pro 900.

That's not going to happen without an intermediate MCU that will talk to both GSM and Xbee parts. And virtually any MCU will work. You pick any modem you can find easily. SIM900 is a safe bet, plenty of sample code and experience out there.
