The Nokia Lumia 900 has been in some people's hands for a few days now, depending on when they pre-ordered the smartphone. Now there is word that at least a few owners of the newest Windows Phone are experiencing some issues with AT&T's data network. Posts on the Nokia support forums, along with messages from readers on WPCentral.com, indicate that at least some Lumia 900 users are unable to reconnect to AT&T's network after the phone goes into airplane mode or after the phone is turned off.
There appears to be a workaround that works for some people:
- Remove the phone's SIM card
- Shut off power to the Lumia 900
- Reboot the phone without the SIM card installed
- Shut off the phone again
- Reinsert the SIM card
- Boot the phone
While this workaround appears to have done the job for some people who have experienced this issue, it has not worked for everyone. It must be stressed that these reports are coming in from just a few Lumia 900 buyers and that there is no reason to believe that this is a problem with all of the Nokia smartphones. We'll be watching this closely.
