Changing microcell device nickname


Changing microcell device nickname

Is it possible to change the device nickname that displays on phones?  I have a microcell at each end of the building and I'd like to know which one I am connecting to.

Re: Changing microcell device nickname



In fact, what you see depends on which phone you use. Some say Microcell, some say M-Cell. I believe it's some sort of artifact of the service provider ID string sent by the tower (in this case, the Microcell). AT&T likely wants that to be fixed so that phones can do special stuff when they see they're on a Microcell.
