If you have Verizon cell phone service, you can add a Verizon camera to your plan for $5/month. AT&T is $25/90 days/1 G data (thousands of photos).

If you pay retail price for the camera, it will take you 24 months to break even on VZW. Less than that, AT&T costs less. More than that VZW costs less.

From a management standpoint, VZW is easier if you have VZW service and can just add it to your plan because you get one bill per month. We have a bunch of AT&T cameras and we just pay 1/3 of them each month whether anything is due to expire that month or not because we have a bunch in one month.

You won't go wrong with either carrier.

LibbyLA summed it up pretty well. If you use Verizon as your carrier then I would go with Verizon. From my experience in traveling in recent years to hunt different places I have fond that Verizon Coverage is just way better than AT&T. While I was out in Iowa last year hunting with a bunch of friends, the guys with AT&T service had to wait until they were almost back at the hotel before all our group text messages would come in. They were out of the loop all day as to what was going on!

Then I would stick with AT&T. Verizon package can be more I believe.

If you don't have existing data plan from Verizon, it will start from $15.00 and you activate the line from spartan directly. The part number is GC-VZWb (Blackout) or GC-VZWi (IR).

Since you know you have AT&T service where you hunt, go with AT&T. The camera costs less up front and the monthly charge is less since you don't have a Verizon phone plan and can't add a camera for $5/month.
