    I posted exactly the same question a while back, without learning much. There is a review in Sporting Rifle (August I think) where the writer liked it, but it is hard to pick out the truth from magazine reviews at times!

    I have used one.

    It was crap. It sent one photo then stopped. The trigger time of 1.2 sec is way to slow.

    Look at cuddebeck or cuddeback cant remember which.

    I have an Ltl Acorn 5210 MM which sends MMS pictures.

    The MMS capability only works well in areas with strong mobile reception, unfortunately this is not the case for most of my terrain. I have it at the moment posted in an area with strong reception and it's working great I'm getting pictures straight away.

    If the reception is not strong enough for the pic to be sent the image will still be stored on the memory card.

    Here is a link to a thread I posted with some pics from the camera:

    Did you ever find out why it failed to send any more photos?

    1.2 secs trigger time seems fine to me, if something cannot be caught on camera in that time then I would question the siting of the unit.

    I am not aware of Cuddeback making anything that has MMS facilities, have you a reference? I found nothing on their web site.

    Thanks for reminding us of that thread. Did you purchase your unit in Norway, or get it sent over from the USA?

    Thanks. I guess the costs will depend on your tariff.
