I live in Iowa which the AT&T service sucks.... I borrowed my buddy's AT&T cellphone and checked all my hunting spots out and at most they had one stinking bar.... Verizon in my area is 3+ bars..... I was originally looking at the Acorn MM and the Covert Special Opps and The Hco 580MM, but they all run off GSM network, and with only one bar of service in my area I doubt they work fine ..... Do they have a trail camera on the market that runs of Verizon CDMA network,.... I hope so cause I really want a couple cellular trail cameras bad!!! PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THEY MAKE ONE>> cause im all in :)

T-Mobil is a GSM provider, are they in your area?

You may have to look at a data based camera...I don't know anything about them, other than the monthly cost is higher. I think some of the manufacturers are "Buck eye", "Smart Scouter" and possibly an offering from Spy Point.

Until 3G cameras are avaible, the best thing is you can look at is the camera that has the strongest GSM signal.

The Upgraded Scoutguard MG582-8M and MG882MK-8M all have enhanced antenna included which gives a 2x signal boost.

If you already bought SG550M/SG880M, you may want to ask for a boosting antenna from your dealer.

What ever cellular game camera you get, I wouldn't plan forward for more than 2 years. Cell phone technology is changing at a rapid pace. In 3 or 4 years GSM or CDMA may not be available with any of the big carriers. In other words, It's kind of a crap shoot right now. Things may change or they may not.

For now, go to this web site: http://www.wirelessadvisor.com/ and type in a zip code to see what services are offered in that area. Some places in OKLA don't have GSM in 850 MHz but do in 1900 MHz. 850 goes a lot greater distance than 1900.

Once you find a carrier with the service you want, then you have to determine if they have a cell tower that can be seen from your particular area with a useable signal strength. Also remember that as leaves start falling signal strength in general will start going up in the fringe areas.

Check this web site http://www.wirelessadvisor.com/ for the zip code where you want to use your cameras. See if any provide GSM at 850 MHz. If any do then the next chore will be to find out where those towers are located (another web site).
