It would be a security risk if you could associate any cell account to your microcell without proof that you own that account because you'd be able to intercept the calls or data.

Unless AT&T and Amazon come up with a new service where they offer microcells, this won't work and also can't be hacked to do so either.
Thanks to the K3 having wifi, the chances of that are very close to nil.
