AT&T 3G MicroCell Installed

Published May 18, 2010

AT&T 3G MicrocellToday is a special day at RustyBrick. We now have an AT&T 3G MicroCell installed at the office. That means that we all have 5 bars now, well - Verizon Wireless users always had five bars, but now all RB iPhone users have five bars now.

Yes, we had to pay the $150 for the device, but consider is a company perk. I do agree that AT&T should give this to all their customers for free, but I will not wait for AT&T to wake up and do that. So I paid the $150 for the office.

I called the local AT&T store this morning to find out if they have them in stock, since they are now available in this area (as of Monday). They had them in stock, so I ran over there, paid for it and came back here. After 90 minutes of letting the device activate, we all saw the "AT&T" at the top left of the iPhone replaced by "AT&T M-Cell." We all also noticed 5 full bars! So we are now running off this MicroCell. We will test it out over the next 30 days and see if it pays to keep it, but I believe we will keep it.

As soon as the RBers saw five bars, they broke out in loud cheers. I am not kidding.

Here are pictures of the phone with the new AT&T symbol:
