How to get OnePlus 3 phone connected to Microcell

I just purchased a OnePlus 3.  I had to go to the AT&T store to get a nano-SIM, since my old phone (Nexus 5) had a micro-SIM.  Everything is setup and working fine.

 

I have a Microcell at home but my OnePlus didn't connect to it as I expected.  It's the same phone number as the Nexus 5 and I double checked that the number is on the approved list in the Microcell settings.

 

Anyone know the magic trick to get the OnePlus to connect to the Microcell?

Nevermind, it's working now.  I had to reboot both the phone and the microcell.  All good now.

Thanks for your reply.  Yes, I do get LTE.  Made sure of that before I left the AT&T store.

Rebooting the phone within the range of the MicroCell is sometimes necessary depending on the phone OS. The phone needs to "register" itself to the MicroCell before connectivity can be established. The IMEI number is only important, as far as the MicroCell goes, if the phone is made for a non-domestic market and AT&T does not have the IMEI in their database. Glad it's up and working.
