They don't offer that plan anymore, I had to activate on a 24.99 plan, Plus all the taxes and fees it ended up being $29. A lot more than I am paying for my 2015 model at $10 on my shared data plan.... Will not take long to pay for a new model camera, but the 2016 models plan are somewhat higher that the 2015 models but not much.

I see a plan for 30 dollars and then it's 25 if you choose auto pay. Is this what you are talking about? unlimited talk, text and pictures....... Thanks for your response in advance dupont241. Greatly appreciated.

Yes that is it. FYI i did contact Covert and this is what they told me also, this model has to have a TXT plan and can't be upgraded to use just data like to next model camera.
 
Well, I bought a new gophone and SIM card back in Jan so I was given the option and selected the original 10 cents per minute plan and then went online and loaded money onto my account and purchased the unlimited text plan for $19.99. Put the SIM in the cam and it says it's "Searching Network". I see no signal bars and that can be an issue here so hoping that is the problem. I have the big antenna on it but can still be a signal issue. If I take this to work and it still continues, is there anything I am missing that I may have forgotten? Any updates for this cam that may cause issues? Thanks.

You can call and verify but they told me that the Gophone plans only worked with the 2014 models.
The 2015 are setup differently.

I appreciate the help. I was just absent a signal. I stopped on the side of the highway and got 3 bars. Took a manual pic and sent. Worked flawlessly. :) It's a 2013. I did in fact get the 10 cents per minute and the 19.99 plan since I bought that card before that package stopped being available. Back side of TVA in Muhlenberg County.

ATT had no idea I was using a camera of this sort. Did all my set up and activation in a little gophone. Just moved the card to the camera once I was all set to go. :) No IMEI numbers or anything.
Yea,its better to keep ATT out if it if possible, I help setup 2 - 2013 models for a friend couple weeks ago, we did the same thing with no problems what so ever.
My 2015 models i have one setup on my shared data plan for $10 a month and one on the data connect plan for 3 months for $25.
Helped anonther friend setup a new 2016 model it was super simple, pictures are sent to an app. or checked over web page on PC.
