TinyGSM and Blynk library on Adafruit Fona?

Hi, I noticed the TinyGSM library, which is supposed to work also with the SIM800L chip. I would like to use the Adafruit Fona board (https://www.adafruit.com/product/1946), and the one I bought has the SIM800L chip.

I successfully tested it with an Arduino, using the Adafruit_Fona library. The connection between Arduino and the board requires three pins (apart from power lines): serial (Tx and Rx) and Reset. It goes like this…
#define FONA_RX 2
#define FONA_TX 3
#define FONA_RST 4
SoftwareSerial fonaSS = SoftwareSerial(FONA_TX, FONA_RX);
Adafruit_FONA fona = Adafruit_FONA(FONA_RST);

I had a look at the TinyGSM library example (BlynkClient.ino in the github repository https://github.com/vshymanskyy/TinyGSM), but there the TinyGsm client is initialised after specifying only a serial port that connects to the GSM unit. Has anyone used it with a Fona board? and yes, what do I do about the RESET pin?

TinyGSM uses soft reset (sending AT command).
You can also trigger reset using the reset pin (set it to LOW for 100 ms, I guess).

Ok, sorry, post deleted. Did not intend to spam.
