    I have been eagerly waiting for a microcell since February. Is this thing ever going to be released to the rest of us?

    No *****!!! How tough can it be to roll out?

    LTE will be done before the Microcell. :rolleyes:

    Yet another ATT FAIL.

    They couldn't even get something as simple as MMS out by their own deadline.

    Expect Microcell in about 3 months at LEAST.

    As a Microcell user in one of the pilot markets, I can tell you this device is not yet ready for prime time. There's still too many issues with garbled calls, random loss of connectivity and a few other minor issues (problems establishing the IPSEC tunnel to AT&T, GPS issues). Most problem escalation calls that I've had go straight to the engineering team (which is nice for us), but I don't think AT&T can handle the customer support until those issues are ironed out.

    Once they get the issues worked out this will be a great device.

    Looks like it. The post right before this one seems to show it perfectly.

    I bought one retail in San Diego. Fixed my coverage issue, however noticed on long calls, people tend to lose the ability to hear me, as if I am on mute.

    Call the AT&T support number listed in the documentation and have them check to see if you have the latest network updates and carrier settings on your SIM card.

    I had similar issues and I needed a new SIM card for my iPhone. Once it went through network activation my call reliability got much better. I have been on multi-hour conference calls with work with no issues.

    Prior to that I was lucky to get 15 - 20 minutes without having to call back into a conference call.
