I bought 2 2015 code blacks and ran them since mid summer. I was more learning than anything this year just playing with them. In my opinion they didn't lead me to either of my buck kills, since I would have hunted those stands on given winds regardless.
It is very cool to get buck pics while sitting at home, at work or whereever. My ATT service has been good. I'm too nervous to leave them on public where I think it would be more helpful.
I have one as a carcass cam now, and hope to take a few yotes with its help.

The Blackhawk just came out a couple months ago, and I believe it's a Verizon only for coverage ( which is what I needed, ATT doesn't work in my area).

I got a nice pic yesterday. Nice clear pic. Had about 13 different pics sent to me yesterday, the deer must be really moving with the cold weather.

Boy I want a cell cam. I want one for remote area, would kill me to have a normal cam soaking and not know if it was getting pics or set up wrong or stolen.

I'm waiting to see what Moultrie has coming out. My understanding it is a separate wireless unit that plugs into it works on all their 2015+ cameras. You can move it around from camera to camera and works on Verizon. That way if camera breaks you just put it on another camera

I'm up to 275 pics sent to me, plus it is on multi shot, so it keeps two more pics on the SD card. I put out camera first week of November, and battery still shows full power. I am using Lithiums though, and they say when Lithiums go dead, its very fast, so, I'm curious to see how long they will last....

Why for sprint? It seems like ATT or Verizon would cover just about everything.

That is exactly what it will do. You will see 9, 9, 9, 9, 9/8, on battery meter on info strip then no pics.

You should be good for a fair while with only 275 transmissions on a set of lithiums. You should hit 1k or more on transmissions sent, but obviously the longer the months go on, the lower the transmission count will be before they die. The resting rate for the cam is pretty low but months of resting will reduce the number of transmissions the batteries can send over time.
