Can the average person please explain to me the process of purchasing and installing a SIM card. Below is my situation and equipment.
I own a Galaxy smartphone that I bought through Tracfone, It works fine and does everything I want. I add data, minutes, and text as I need it. I thought the process of buying and using the Reolink Go was going to be simple. Install the Reolink app and use it to download the Reolink Go information and thats it.
Can you explain why I have to buy a SIM card and pay another phone company other monthly fees. But please, tell me the entire process.

The product information for the Reolink Go is specific. It is a product that connects to a telephone network (LTE or 3G) and does not connect to WiFi. https://reolink.com/product/reolink-go/
The "good news" about this is that it is 100% wire free. (no power cord, no ethernet cable) and rather than having a WiFi network card, it has a telephone network capability. The web page has a link to which telephone networks it is compatible with in many countries.
The product is intended for those situations where there is (a) no convenient electrical power supply, (b) no internet connection, (c) no WiFi network. Imagine someone wants to watch their 1/4mile long driveway and has no way to get electricity or network out there. Mount this and swap the batteries every few weeks (or install a solar charger). The phone company provides the network for the camera.
Sorry if I'm not making sense. This obviously may not be the product for you. (or, for me, either)

You need to insert an activated SIM card for the camera to connect to the Internet. So that you can access the camera via your phone remotely.
