    I started with 1 Tactacam this year. Up to 4 now. So far they work great. AT&T has better signal than the 3 Verizon ones I have. All work as intended.

    I started out with Covert many years ago and have stuck with them. They are way more expensive than most cellular cams out now but I don’t have problems. Have five cams going now with the oldest being five years old now and it is still going strong. All of them have a solar \ external battery setup on them and they stay out year round. The only thing Ihave ever had to replace is the external battery and the solar panel and time or two on a few of them. Otherwise they just work.

    Well the Bushnell seems to be working well. I have gotten a couple hundred pics so far. Here is one from a couple minutes ago.

    Any thoughts on how well this cam does in areas with poor cell connectivity?

    I’ve got 6 now. Hopefully that’s enough. Just got 2 more AT&T. Will deploy them this weekend. Hoping their signal is as good as the one currently out there.

    My son sent me out with the first one to set it up and I accidentally selected the wrong plan, now we are locked into the unlimited plan for one year:(

    oh man. I thought it was month to month? I've been getting by with the $5.00 per month (250 pics I think?) so far. I'll cancel in December when I bring them all in.

    You have your choice of plans, but once you select one you are locked into it until it expires, and pay in full up front, plus any camera that you add has to go on the same plan.
