Q:

Which port on any Arduino board should be connected to the Key Port on the Adafruit FONA 3G+GPS Breakout?

A) Any Digital Pin B) Vcc
C) Gnd D) Any Analog Pin
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Gnd

Explanation: The Adafruit FONA 3G+GPS Breakout’s Key pin should be always connected to the Gnd Pin on any Arduino Board. This pin provides the function of the power on/off indicator. When you would like to shutdown the board, connect the pin to the Gnd of the Arduino Board for about 3 to 5 seconds. However for prolonged use usage of the Adafruit FONA 3G+GPS Breakout one needs to permanently connect this pin to the Gnd of the Arduino.
