Trail camera

I bought a wild game cell crush Cam. Went to Walmart bought an Android phone, and 35$ pay as you go card. Got the phone activated and it sends and receives pictures. Put the Sim card in the camera and now it won't send the pictures

Please help

Re: Trail camera

I don't believe you can use the trail cam with a regular cell phone plan. It needs a data only plan. Contact AT&T and have them see what plan will work for that device.

Re: Trail camera

Hi, @zachmunden,


Let's take a look at this. Are you using the SIM card for the prepaid Android in your camera? If so, as it's provisioned for the phone, it may not work for the camera. We would recommend getting a prepaid data plan for the camera and going into an AT&T Store to get the proper SIM card for it.


Have a great week!
