Hi

has anyone purchased a GSM type trail cam overseas USA /Canada and returned to the uk with it working, can you put any SIM card in the trail cam ? I’m traveling regularly to Canada and was thinking of purchasing a couple to bring back.

GSM should not be a problem. You have to watch out for CDMA as it don’t work outside NA.

The Trail Cam will not be “locked” to a network.

GSM- the ancient standard for mobiles, shouldn't have a problem working, as long as the frequencies for this country are supported, but the speeds available from GSM aren't fast enough to be of any use for transferring pictures.

GSM is a protocol, same as CDMA. They are not compatible. Current 4G/3G services give you plenty of bandwidth. I see that Thomas Jacks are the authorised distributor in the U.K. See what cellular units they import and then look for the same model on the other side of the pond.

Agreed. I was suggesting that just because a device is stated as GSM compatible it doesn't mean it's usable.
