5210MG Cellular Set Up Instructions when using a 1pMobile SIM Card & a Gmail Email Address
Insert your 1pMobile SIM card into the SIM card slot in the cameras’ back pack.
The SIM card contacts should be facing away from you and the corner cut out should be in the bottom right.
Insert your SD card (16G max, class 10) into your desktop / laptop computer.
Insert the mini disk supplied with your camera into your desktop / laptop computer.
When the disk loads, select the “PC Setup” file and from the next list select the “Setup” file.
If you see the message “Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to make changes to the device?” – you will need to click Yes.
The setup software will now load and run.
Select your language and camera model from the drop down lists then click “SMTP Setup”.
Please follow the instructions below for the value to enter in each field:

Click the X to close the setup software window.
Now remove the SD card from your computer and insert it into the SD card slot on the camera.
Insert your camera batteries (must be 2500mA and fully charged) but don’t attach the back pack to the camera just yet.
