Best wireless trail cameras
Finally in the market for a wireless trail cam, however due to having sprint for a cell carrier, not many companies offer plans with sprint. I have read recently some companies offer their own plans online but forget which manufacturer it was. If anybody has some reviews or advice on these cameras worth sharing let me know.

re: Best wireless trail cameras
I don't have any, but since you don't have any first hand responses, I do know others who do. I'm told that Moultrie works well, and you go online to set up service with verizon, regardless of who you have mobile service with. It's an independent plan tailored for trail cameras and is somewhere in the neighborhood of $10/month, depending on options and number of pics/data

ETA- I also understand that with moultrie, you have options as to when it sends the pics. Maybe they all do. As I understand, firing up the modem uses battery each time, so it's more consuming to fire it up and transmit pics as they occur, and less to opt for once or twice a day transmittal of all taken. That's as much as I recall from others who have them

re: Best wireless trail cameras
Just got done helping my dad adjust the settings on his Moultrie Mobile cameras. They're pretty good and use a Verizon data plan through moultrie without having to sign up a new data plan through a cell phone provider. You can choose the plan online and add data if your camera fills up. It also takes all the photos in regular resolution and will only use extra data for high definition if you request it. You can mess with all the camera settings from your computer (sign in to moultrie mobile) or download the moultrie mobile app on your phone.

I think it's a pretty neat setup and would definitely recommend it.

This would work well for me, I have 3 of the newest moultries right now that are supposedly compatible with this. My next trip up to the farm for opening weekend I'll see about setting it up.

You won't regret it! Just be sure to adjust your camera settings before leaving it unattended so it won't burn through your data. My dad had to increase the time between shots to 5 minutes because the deer were wearing it out.

I think only a very select few on this board have to deal with green jays on their gamecams

We use Spartan cameras with AT&T. Basically seem like the same setup as the Moultrie overview above. Very pleased with them.

Covert black ops is the answer. 400 bucks plus 9.99/mo for 1000 pics. Choose any carrier. I'm getting pics as we speak...

I have several of the covert on the att plan. $9.99 per month. Work great. If you already have the moultree cameras you already have the answer of what to get.

Make sure you have good service with the carrier the cameras use. I know the Verizon service sucks where I hunt.

Covert thru At&T plans start at 9.99 and Spartan cameras have the same plan. Both are great. Third would be Moutire with Verizon. Verizon is pricey and th pic packages are not as friendly as at&t

re: Best wireless trail cameras
Ones I have used:

Spartan HC cameras
$400
Monthly fee to Spartan
3 month plan with ATT - $25
Pro: works great, has a great app and website, easy to use, long battery like (3 months)
Con: cell coverage needs to be at least 3 bars, have to pay Spartan to use all the features such as remote change of settings, expensive

Synper Commander 3G
$220-$250
3 month plan with ATT - $25
Pro: cheaper, works at 1 bar or less of signal
Con: setup wasnt super easy, app isnt the best, can only text to 1 number and rest of hunters use app, night photos just average.

All in all my next wireless camera would be the Synper.
