Default Cellular Trail cameras???

I am in the market for a cellular trail cam that I can put on a piece of land I own. After doing some research I see so many opposing views that I am still confused.

Notes:
1. The area has good coverage for both Verizon and AT&T.
2. Would be using the camera to see both wildlife as well as security. Eventually going to build a home on the land so would use it to watch the area during construction.
3. Need to go cellular because, no Wifi in the area I can connect to, and do not want to be have to go out to the area to get pictures.
4. I am okay with just still pictures, but video snippets would be added bonus.
5. If possible, some way to change the camera configuration remotely over the cell link (such as pics per minute, sent in real time or burst, etc.) - have not seen much on that so not sure if it is doable.
6. Ability to connect a small solar panel to reduce trips to change batteries.
7. Would like to keep the cost under $500. (I have seen some way more).

So who here has one and what are the good and bad things about it? What cell plans do you use?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

I have been looking at the same thing and I am down to Cuddeback or Spypoint. Right now, I am leaning toward the Cuddeback because of cost and I have the option of looking at the pictures from the main camera in camp on their Cuddelink system.

Thanks for the info. I have also narrowed it down to those two set-ups as well. Reviews that I have seen have been mixed.

At some point we will be dialing 15 digits to get a local number.

I have watched local numbers go from 7 digits to 10 in my lifetime, and my parents even more.

Curious, which did you decide on and how well did it work?

I have yet to purchase one. I will be breaking ground on a house in the Spring, so will have something in place by then. I like the Cuddelink system since you can have multiple cameras connected using one cell link, thus one phone bill. I would like to use 3 cameras.
