i just updated my iphone 4 to ios 6.1, and the phone no longer establishes a connection to the microcell.
i have deregistered and registered the microcell, and i have reset network settings, and i have rebooted the iphone. i have confirmed that 3G is enabled on the phone.
everything was fine until i updated to ios 6.1

You can try to reset the network settings on your iPhone. Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings. However, that may reset passwords, email, WiFI, etc back to default so note those settings in case you need to reinstall, some, or all of them. I had no problems with iOS 6.1 on my iPhone 5.

Sorry, I misread that. Do you have any other phones that are working fine thru the MicroCell? What iOS version were you upgrading from? FWIW, we have an iPhone 4 as well and it works just fine. If LTE is an option try turning that off, just in case it's confusing the phone. Have you tried a hard reset on the MicroCell (holding in the reset button on the back for about 30 seconds)?

i'll try hard resetting the microcell. i can't imagine that'll help.
i think my best solution here is to get off AT&T. their coverage just sucks here. here i come verizon, i guess. the microcell is far too unreliable to depend on.

All coverage maps (regardless of provider) can be misleading because they don't accurately reflect actual converage(which includes structures). If AT&T coverage in your area (inside and outside) is not as good as another provider, then changing might not be a bad idea. Keep in mind that Verizon also provides femtocells for areas where their coverage is minimal.
