Approved user list

Set up an approved user list to allow access to your AT&T Microcell.


INSTRUCTIONS & INFO
  1. The approved user list contains the phone numbers of friends, family and associates that you allow to use your MicroCell while they are at your home or office.
    Note: You can only add people to this list who have an AT&T wireless service plan. When they make phone calls, they will use their own minutes and service plan.
