Just ran across this info on the free Microcell deal. It appears that AT&T is offering the device to the 7.5% of customers likely to experience "poor in-building coverage."

So probably complaining helps them identify you as part of the 7.5%. See:


i tried calling to see if they'd give me one free when i just moved...but it's the basement apartment, not the general area, so...i don't qualify. :/ $150 is pretty steep, too.

My daughter brought me one because I live in a rural area and it stopped working. She asked for a free replacement and they refused to give her a replacement. She has been a loyal customer with AT&T for several years. Her monthly bill is high and for this reason alone she deserve a free m-cell. I am hopping she change to Version when her contract end
