Default Anyone using the new Spypoint cellular camera?

Spypoint Link evo 4g AT&T is around $200 with plans $0-15. I'm really thinking about getting one. Anyone trying them?

Not a cellular but the spypoint I have with the solar power takes terrible night pics.

I have the one with the solar panel as well and the night pics are not great but,, I put batteries in it one time when I got it and it takes around 4000 pics every two weeks going on 9 months and my battery says 100% every time I check. For me it works great and you can still definitely tell what the deer are.

Check out snyper hunting products. I have a commander 3g and it is a easy cam to use, reliable and the battery life is pretty good as well. Think I paid 220 bucks for it.

Any more updates or recommendations on cellular cameras? I'd rather not spend a fortune.

I bought the att evo a free weeks ago. It works well when I'm not around my hunting spots... just happens they are in creek bottoms and low lying areas which doesn't help at all

I just bought a $30 cell booster extended antenna off Amazon which I hope gets the antenna above the canopy and working. Will let u know if it works after booster

Any luck with the cell booster? I have the same setup conditions and it's been synchronizing without issue, until this weekend. If you don't mind, let me know which booster you bought. Thanks.

I have the spypoint. Been up about 2 weeks now. So far so good. Pic quality that is transmitted to phone is so so. Hard to really see details if they aren't pretty close to camera.

For price I'm happy as I don't get to lease as often as I want. And it gives me a great idea of what's moving in my area. Time will tell as I have had it so short of a time.
