Re: Microcell

@bbaker1973 - the best way is to access your myAT&T MicroCell account and add the number that way. If you are trying to use the phone app it is lame and out of date. Besides, you usually need to have the phone within range of the MicroCell and turn the phone off and then on again so the phone can register the MicroCell as part of its cellular network.

Re: Microcell

I appreciate the response. I was still looking for the way to do it through the text message.

Re: Microcell

I didn't ask if it's reliable, I asked for the number to be able to do it. If you don't know it or don't want to share it then just say so. Let me be my own judge on using it. Everytime I used it in the past it was successful, and I have forgotten the number. Didn't realize it was top secret info.

Re: Microcell

It isn't top secret information, just not the best way to add Mcell numbers.  I've never used the text message avenue to update the Approved Users List so I don't know how well it works.   I believe you text "Add" to 6235 (MCEL) if it still works and I think it does.  Let us know if it does.

Re: Microcell

@bbaker1973 - it's not top secret as @Avedis53 said. It just doesn't work all of the time.
