The code used for interfacing the gsm module with arduino for sending a message is as follows :-

#include <GSM.h>

#define PINNUMBER ""

// initialize the library instance
GSM gsmAccess; // include a 'true' parameter for debug enabled
GSM_SMS sms;

// char array of the telephone number to send SMS
// change the number 1-212-555-1212 to a number
// you have access to
char remoteNumber[20]= "12125551212";  

// char array of the message
char txtMsg[200]="Test";

void setup()
{
  // initialize serial communications
  Serial.begin(9600);

  Serial.println("SMS Messages Sender");

  // connection state
  boolean notConnected = true;

  // Start GSM shield
  // If your SIM has PIN, pass it as a parameter of begin() in quotes
  while(notConnected)
  {
    if(gsmAccess.begin(PINNUMBER)==GSM_READY)
      notConnected = false;
    else
    {
      Serial.println("Not connected");
      delay(1000);
    }
  }
  Serial.println("GSM initialized");
  sendSMS();
}

void loop()
{
// nothing to see here
}

void sendSMS(){

  Serial.print("Message to mobile number: ");
  Serial.println(remoteNumber);

  // sms text
  Serial.println("SENDING");
  Serial.println();
  Serial.println("Message:");
  Serial.println(txtMsg);

  // send the message
  sms.beginSMS(remoteNumber);
  sms.print(txtMsg);
  sms.endSMS(); 
  Serial.println("\nCOMPLETE!\n");  
}

the error is found on the 3rd line GSM_SMS sms; as GSM_SMS is not a name type. what point am i missing here...??

thank you in advance.

    Which version of the Arduino IDE are you using? – Peter Bloomfield Mar 4 '15 at 9:18

Update your IDE software. You need IDE 1.0.4 or later. I copied your code into my 1.0.5 IDE and compiled it without any error. So it is most probably your version of the Arduino IDE.
