Instructions for most 2014 and older cellular trail cameras.

Sim Card Instructions for purchasing through a Cellular Retail Store:
Getting the correct sim card is crucial.  You MUST get the AT&T Go Phone Plan (without the phone), 10¢ per minute plan, this is a month to month plan, no contract required.  Activate the plan when the camera is out, deactivate it when you aren't using it.  Add unlimited text messages to this plan.  This should cost $19.99 per month.  If for whatever reason some AT&T salesperson tries to tell you you have to add minutes or anything else.  DON'T DO IT.  It will not work with any other plan (other than the one described earlier).  Have them put the sim card in a cell phone and send you a text message with a picture attached.  This ensures the sim card is connected to the network.

If they ask you for the IMEI number, they aren't getting you the right plan.

If you are already an AT&T customer, just add a line with unlimited text messages.  You do not need minutes or data.  This should cost $9.99 a month.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Insert sim and SD card in camera.  Move switch to setup on camera and press the menu key and set the camera to the following settings.  Press OK after each change.
