    Default AT&T Microcell Outside the USA

    Has anyone tried using the microcell outside the USA to call back to the USA as a local phone call? Similar to tmobile's uma service. Thanks.

    I think their microcell requires GPS lock for first time use. I really don;t know if there's a way to avoid this, but it would mean it's impossible.

    I would curious to find out, if after you lock the GPS for the first time while in the USA, than remove it to outside the USA what happens.

    Each time you plug it in, it tries to get GPS lock, so I don't believe your idea will work.

    Unless you have some sort of aux power supply that can keep the cell running for 24-48 hours and not get TSA nervous when they x-ray your bag.

    Even after all that, the unit does reattempt GPS ever now and again.

    The GPS lock is required for authorized use. If AT&T isn't permitted to broadcast in the area, the Microcell won't transmit. Using it outside of the US is not likely to be a successful endeavor.
