I have a microcell and it’s great for signal.  But it won’t let me send a picture thru text msg.  I have the iPhone X. Can someone please help me.

Re: Microcell

@Pippagirl - check the Messages settings. iMessage should be enabled (I'm sure it is) as well as Send as SMS and MMS Messaging. WiFi also needs to be enabled. It's not a MicroCell issue as there are no settings to check or modify.


Your phone is capable of WiFi-C (WiFi Calling) so you don't really need the MicroCell. They have reached their EOL as of the end of 2017 and AT&T's  3G service itself will eventually be discontinued as well rendering the MicroCell useless.
