User Reviews

Put the reciever right next to my room and no more dropped calls. The first location I put the antenna was conflicting with the reciever. It was on the side of the roof right next to my room about 10 feet horizontal and 6 feet higher than the reciever. I guess it was too close. Had to zip tie it to a pipe sticking out in the middle of my roof. I don't get it cause it still seemed the same distance, but I guess it couldn't conflict with each other as much. It worked out because it was the location with the best signal. Was using my cell phone to check the signal. This signal booster works only if you can put the antenna at a location where the cell phone signal is strong and and the reciever inside your house where you barely have a signal. -- Works

I've had this item for 11 months now. My home is only just over 1300 sq ft so we weren't asking a lot. We got it heading into winter (no leaves on the trees) and felt like we were seeing a bit of improvement where a bit was absolutely necessary. By spring, we had a more complete opinion and not a good one. Now, after 11 months, it is completely on the fritz and I'm trying to get it returned or, oh boy, replaced. -- Save your money...

The unit did a very good job at boosting the cell signal as long as you were within 2 feet of the base unit. As soon as you move away from the base unit the cell phone signal dropped to zero and calls could not be placed. Followed the directions as indicated and they were very helpful, but once again the base unit does not have any power. Do not fall for the 2500 square feet of coverage. The unit has about 4 square feet of coverage. -- No range

I purchased this product nearly 1 year ago with the hope that it could improve the cell phone signal in my house enough to allow me to get rid of our land line phone. I live less than 2 miles from the closest cell tower but could never get more than 1 bar of signal strength. Over the course of the past year I've wasted no fewer than 3 days of my time trying out different options to improve the performance of this unit. I've also spent more money than I care to reflect on upgrading the internal and external antennas. The frustrating part of the ordeal is that with my current installation configuration I can routinely see between 3-4 bars of signal strength on my cell phone if I place it within 3 feet of the unit. As soon as I pull the device further away though the signal drops back to nearly pre-boosted levels. After much frustration (I'm upset with myself that I didn't return this unit the day after it arrived) I called customer support today with the hope that they might be able to help me troubleshoot this issue. Given all of the positive reviews this device receives it seems likely that either I have a hardware issue or else something in my house is interfering with the signal being output by the booster. My call with customer service was terrible. The person I spoke with seemed to be inconvenienced by the thought of needing to speak with me at all and had absolutely no interest in trying to help me resolve the problem. I originally stumbled upon this product after a friend recommended a similar unit produced by Wilson Electronics. I foolishly purchased this one instead because CNET gave it a great review and because it was nearly $100 cheaper at the time. Do yourself a favor and learn from my mistake, go with a solution from Wilson Electronics instead that's what I'll be doing next. -- Range of booster terrible, customer support even worse

The device works, but if you do not have more than one bar of signal anywhere in your location, then it can't work miracles. Living in a condo, there is no way to put the antenna on the roof or attic so it does not help me much with signal.

You have to connect the antenna to the device with a coax cable and that is hard to hide in a small home, so that is another draw back. I guess it would have been nice to know about the long antenna cable before I purchased it. -- It works
