AT&T MicroCell

A little something extra…

After getting AT&T U-verse last week, I figured I’d finally be eligible for a MicroCell. I picked one up yesterday, and it seems OK so far. After a few more days – maybe a week – of usage, I’ll write a review, also for U-verse which is great so far.

Back to the MicroCell, I just made my first call this morning, to Charles. It worked splendid from my living room where calls usually (a.) flat out don’t work, (b.) get dropped after a few minutes, (c.) the “I am now!” where my phone call gets broken up. Sending txt messages is super fast too, compared to my previous speed: not working at all.

As I Tweetered yesterday, it proves the iPhone QoS rule: the solution to any iPhone problem is to spend more money.
