On Board SIM card and a Microcell

Sun Dec 13, 2015 8:06 am

I'm in an area where my cellphone coverage is marginal. I don't have to go out of my condo far, sometimes only a few feet to get a reasonable signal. To help things along, I have a microcell, that acts like a mini cellphone tower in my home that is connected to the internet. To keep my internet connection from being overloaded, you have to pre-authorize a cellphone number for it to work, and it will only work with my carrier's phones - AT&T. Anyone ever tried to find their i3's phone number? If I could get it, I could add the car to it, and be more assured of having a good connection when I try to activate the preconditioning, or check status.
