Code-Black-3G-2If you are experiencing issues with your 2014 3G Code Black:
-If your Code Black is working intermittently and only taking a few pictures or you are only receiving a few pictures.
-If your Code Black will not respond to command codes but once were.
-If your Code Black will send you a manual picture but when you put it out to test, it will send you 2-8 pictures and the red light starts blinking on the front and no longer takes or sends pictures
This is an AT&T network issue-You will have to contact AT&T go phone service at 800-901-9878. You will need to have them check to see if you are still on the 10 cent per minute plan. You will then need to see if you are still on the texting package (either the 1000 texts for 9.99 or the unlimited for 19.99) if they say you are on this texting feature have them take it off and re-add the feature so it will reconfigure your account. Also, make sure your IMEI # is all 1’s. (111111111111111) if you are on a prepaid account. or IMEI # 355969041948057 for a postpaid account. Once they have reconfigured your account you may have to manually turn your camera off and back on for the changes to be made.
We do apologize for the issues you are having. If you still have more questions please contact us at support@dlccovert.com.

2014 3G Code Black Setup Video

  *To purchase the correct SIM card and plan for your 2014 Code Black* To have your Code Black send pictures to your cell phone or email address, you will need to get a standard size SIM card from any GSM provider. The SIM card must be set up with the proper plan in order to work so follow the instructions below:

If Purchasing from an AT&T store:

The camera will send to any provider’s phone, but you must have a SIM card installed from a GSM provider. There are several options for choosing a plan for your Code Black camera. 1. The go-phone 10 cent a minute plan from AT&T is an economical choice, (note the camera will never use voice minutes, nor is a data package required), with the text message feature plan of either the 1000 texts at $9.99 per month or the unlimited at $19.99 per month. There is no contract involved with this plan. Please stress that auto-renewal be placed on the message plan chosen when activating your account. (If your 2014 Code Black 3G camera does not have the firmware version, then please update to this FW to ensure compatibility with the AT&T’s plan.) Check your camera firmware version by going to the menu, SYS tab and select FW. If an IMEI number is required, use the IMEI number off of your camera.  If you get network busy and/or login fail, then use IMEI number 355969041948057. 2. You may also purchase a sim card at other retail stores, such as Wal-Mart and follow the instructions on the package for activation, using the above (Item 1) instructions. 3. You can also add a line to your current plan if you are using a GSM network. Please make sure that you have MMS capabilities turned on as well as voice minutes activated on your plan. You do not have to have data for the camera to work.
