I recently purchased a Special Ops Code Black, and went to ATT today to get a prepaid Go Phone SIM card. On the back of my camera package, it says this ATT plan should be $10/month for 1000 messages.
I showed this to ATT, and they set me up. She charged me $10, and said it is a 1000 minute plan....but I could upgrade to 1000 texts for another $10/month.
Am I ok with what I have, or do I need the 1000 texts as well, totalling $20/month? I imagine I need the texts, but I haven't heard anyone say their coverts run at $20/month vs $10/month.
This is from the review I read, but is a bit dated: "You will need a universal prepaid SIM card (free) from ATT or T-Mobile along with a good SD card (I would recommend 8 GB if you aren't going into the area for awhile). Make sure to buy the $0.10/min plan with the number of text messages you want. I bought the $10.00/month plan for 1000 text messages. $5.00 will get you 200 messages, and $20.00 will get you unlimited if you have it in front of a mineral lick or something like that. Make sure you call to place money in the account and tell them you want the same package you had last month to make sure camera retains the ability to send the pics. *****Please check a coverage map for the area you will be placing the camera. You may not receive signal where you place the cam. Where I placed the cam is 2 miles from the nearest "green area" on a map and I still receive a bar or two in a low OPEN area. I've noticed that if it is placed in a thick 'canopy thick' area, it will not transmit as well in low signal areas. I've also had it on higher hills and had it not connect due to the cover. Keep in mind, I'm still 2 miles from the 'green area,' where I should be receiving no signal. I've also had it 10 miles from the 'green area' and received zero to one bar, but it is not consistent and would not transmit pictures well, if at all (this was my preferred area to put it)."
Either way, pretty pumped to get this thing in action this weekend.
