I don't know if this is real or not but the phone shows 4G data when connected to the AT&T microcell. I have only seen the LTE indicator come on when I go outside.
So far the phone is working great with the microcell. I need to test for the power drain issue where when you have data turned on the phone will rapidly discharge when connected to the microcell. I will follow up later if the issue doesn't happen with the Lumia 900.

I have noticed that the MicroCell eats its battery pretty fast ( charging again after about 7 hours). I really think having a no sleep wifi policy would help the performance of the battery on the MicroCell.
Anyone else see noticeable battery difference when on microcell?

Yes the battery issue with cell data turned on connected to a 3G Microcell is still happening with my new Lumia 900. I had a fully changed battery on the phone before I went to bed and when I woke up this morning the batter was down to 22%. Looks like I am going to have to do the same as my Focus and turn off cell data when I get home every day.
I may just unplug the microcell for a few days to see if the LTE coverage in my home is better then 3G and if battery holds up....I'll keep everyone posted.
Oh and I am getting 2 bars of LTE at home where I would get no to one bar of 3G when I didn't have the microcell.

AT&T plans to add LTE voice calling by 2013
Support for inter-operation and co-existence with legacy standards (e.g. GSM/EDGE, UMTS and CDMA2000). Users can start a call or transfer of data in an area using an LTE standard, and, should coverage be unavailable, continue the operation without any action on their part using GSM/GPRS or W-CDMA-based UMTS or even 3GPP2 networks such as cdmaOne or CDMA2000)
