Until Tuesday. My husband came home from work with the biggest smile on his face and a box in his hands.
After prying the box out of his hands, I found out that is was something called a MicroCell from AT&T.
So, of course I asked him what it was and how much it cost (since I have not been working we have been really trying to spend our money on only the essentials). After finding out that the gadget was $199, I immediately
So, are you curious about what the magic box does. Well, here it is. It connects to your broadband Internet service to create a strong, secure, sharable 3G signal in your home. Up to four AT&T 3G or 4G phones can be used at the same time. So, what does that mean.
"The AT&T 3G MicroCell device acts like a mini cell tower in your home, and connects to your existing broadband Internet service. You receive improved cell signal performance for both voice calls and cellular data applications like picture messaging and Web surfing. Special Unlimited MicroCell calling features are also available." So, in other words.....I went from have 1 bar of service in very few uncomfortable spots or no service at all, to 4-5 bars of service. So, yes....that means no having to go out in the cold winter or hot hot summer to use the phone or send a voice mail. And definitely not scrunching up in a ball in the bottom of my spare bedroom closet.
So, do I recommend this little white box of magic. You're darn straight I would. And you know what else? We may even get rid of our land line! I went online to do research on it before writing this and I have read a few bad reviews on it. Some were saying that the MicroCell did nothing for them and they were still dropping calls. Or the network would go down from time to time for repair when they were first setting it up. I think I am ok with that and understanding of that as long as it does not last for days. So, if you have poor signal at your house and have AT&T...oh and $199, I would definitely recommend getting the MicroCell from them. Just keep in mind you have to have a broadband Internet service. I don't know if any other phone carrier offers such a wonderful magic box, but it is worth the time to ask!
