Nokia Lumia 900′s suffering HSPA+ and LTE connectivity issues, possible due to bad SIM’s

As if it wasn’t bad enough that the Nokia Lumia 900 was hard to obtain yesterday, now comes word that the device is suffering from HSPA+ and LTE connectivity issues. Apparently, users are complaining that the device won’t stay connected, preventing them from being able to browse the web, stream movies or just simply download something.

When customers call to complain to AT&T, they are being told to shut down the device, remove the SIM card, re-insert it and reboot. For some, this method seems to work, but for others the issue with connectivity continues.

While the issue hasn’t been publicly acknowledged by AT&T as of right now, according to Electronista, the issues stem from the Lumia 900′s IMEI, which for some odd reason has failed to connect and register with the carrier’s data network. We still don’t know if this is a small contained issue or if it’s wide spread. If it turns out to be a wide spread issue, this could be quite a damper on the Lumia 900′s U.S. launch and would be a little embarrassing for Microsoft, Nokia and especially, AT&T.

    know, this is kinda funny. I’m still debating on purchasing this device, but I’m
    still not sure. And after I saw this I really was hesitant about it. But no
    phone gets released with out some flaw on its end or the networks end.
