All lights blinking for hours, still Activation Pending

I got a MicroCell today, registered it, plugged it in near the window, and let it cook for 90 minutes. Still says 'Activation Pending' and all lights are blinking (Power is solid and 'Computer' light is not lit b/c no computer connected). The internet (Saturn) light blinks fast, the 3G and Sat lights blink less often. Doesn't seem to be doing anything.

 

I disconnected the device from ATT web portal and tried to register it again, same issues. Anyone know what is going on here?

If the internet light is blinking, you're not connected to the internet so you won't be able to do anything. The blinking GPS light means you don't have a satellite lock so again, you won't be able to do anything. Have you connected the MicroCell to the LAN port on your router or modem? That's the first step. The power light and internet light should be solid all of the time. Once the GPS locks, that light will stay solid, and then you wait for the 3G light to stay solid.

It means its bricked :'( My tamper devices went off on my old MC from falling off the book case. From counting top to bottom 1-5, led 1 would stay on, led 2 and 4 would blink 3 times and pause and then blank 3 times again in sync and then led 3 and 5 would blink randomly on and off in their own 2 different patterns. The At&t site would say activation Pending for at least 20 hours. The only way I found this out was after the 3rd time contacting At&t.

 

Is it brand new or did you buy it used? If its still under 1 year old you can send it in for warranty repair/get a new one.

Is there a rattling sound if you shake it gently or carefully turn it over? If there is, then it is bricked as stated above. Brand new shouldn't be a problem because of warranty. Buying it used, caveat emptor.
