I am in a remote area in Middle Tn - No At&T signal available- I have Comtrendabc2 DSL/Wireless Router service, Windows 7.
Can my A3G Iphone/At &T make use of the DSL system in place to send and receive text or any other of the phone features?
If so how do I effect the setup?
Thanks for any assist.

You can connect to your wireless router but to use SMS, you need to look at ATT's Micro cell that would attach to your router via an ethernet cable. Check with your local ATT corporate store.

If you have no cell coverage at your home, the micro-cell will create that environment so you can send SMS messages. email and internet will work via the wifi that your current router supports.

You would need to be in an at&t service area to use a microcell. If you are not in an area in which at&t is licensed to operate, you will not be able to use a microcell. I would talk to at&t before spending any more money (such as purchasing a microcell).
