IPhone X not reconnecting to Mcell after being out

When I take my iPhone X out and it connects to some other service, it does not immediately reconnect to the MCell after I return. It will do so after several hours. I can usually get it to reconnect by turning phone off and on. Is there some setting on the phone or MCell that will fix this?

@Garrison137 - why are you using the MicroCell? Your phone is capable of WiFi-C ( WiFi Calling) so you don't need the MicroCell. The MicroCell reached its EOL at the end of 2017. Service will continue until AT&T transition away from their 3G network. AT&T and us recommend WiFi-C.


If you need to use the MicroCell for non-WiFi-C phones post back.
