    Anyone having issues with their AT&T Microcell? Just got a new iPhone 6s Plus. It doesn't recognize the AT&T Microcell signal. Have restarted Microcell and iPhone.

    I deactivated it. Waited 20 minutes, reactivated it and boom it was working again.

    Yes, I'm having the same problem. Upgraded from an iphone 6 to 6s, that last phone (and the last 2-3 devices I've had all iphones) was connecting fine to the microcell. Gave the wife the iphone 6 I had, it still connects fine but the new 6s does not.

    Update: I tried changing the nickname on my phone, that didn't work after a couple hours. Now, I'm resetting the whole device.

    *** UPDATE ***

    Well, a complete de-register and re-register did the trick.. not sure why that was required but at least a user serviceable fix.. all phones are now connected again - well, it was only the new phone that was having the issue.
