Straight Talk Signal Booster: Get More Bars

on 20th Oct 2017

How to boost your Straight Talk signal

Straight Talk is a national prepaid wireless operator under the partnership of TracFone Wireless & Walmart. 

Because they operate on  all four major carrier networks (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint), Straight Talk has been the no-contract, BYOD (bring-your-own-device) carrier many customers are moving to.

But not everything is peaches and cream when it comes to poor signal.

And when it comes to improving 3G & 4G cellular signal, you're going to need a lot of help.

Luckily, Wilson Amplifiers has written a  guide on easy ways to boost cell phone signal but there are times when you need a definitive solution.  

The Problem

So when you're dropping calls and getting stuck on loading screens, is it always your carrier's fault?

Sometimes yes, but other times no. 

It's actually a variety of reasons that are out of your control and even your carrier's control.

Cell phone signals are radio waves, the AM-FM kind that's floating out there. And like all radio waves, they are easily altered, absorbed, and blocked by literally everything under the sun.

Some examples:

  1. Cell tower distance 
  2. Outside interference: Trees, hills, mountains, valleys, and any tall structures natural or manmade.
  3. Building material: Metal, glass, rebar, concrete, brick, energy-efficient material, and other conductive material (electrical or magnetic).
  4. Internal building obstructions: Thick walls, plaster, sheetrock, wood and electrical devices & clutter, etc.
  5. Even weather like rain, snow, and thunderstorms.

All it takes is just one or any combination of these factors, and you'll be begging for one bar of 3G or 4G LTE.

But there is a way to improve your signal for good.

The Solution:

Everything changes with a cell phone booster.

A signal booster takes any existing 3G & 4G LTE signal and amplifies up to 32X and then rebroadcasts the boosted signal into the home, office, or car.

It essentially bypasses all building material, amplifies it inside the home, and allows for boosted signal to AND from the cell tower.

The results? Improved Straight Talk service. Faster internet. Better talk & text.

Here are all the features and benefits of using a cell phone booster: 

  1. Works for all cell phones & cellular devices.
  2. Carrier-proof: Works for all carriers in USA & Canada.
  3. One-time purchase, no monthly fees.
  4. No need for wifi or any broadband connection.

"Hey now, does it really work?"

Yes.*

Why the asterisk, you say?

That's because you'll  need existing cell phone signal outside your home

A cell phone booster ENHANCES existing signal, it does not create it.

Think of it as a megaphone. It'll amplify sound you put in. A whisper to a scream provides different levels of output. But if those lips are sealed, then no amplified sound.

So here's how to find out if this works for you:

Are you running outside the home to make a call? Do you find your signal to be stronger outside your home than inside? 

If so, then yes. A cell phone booster will work for you. We also have a more scientific and highly recommended way of reading your signal strength on your smarpthone.  

See the top models for boosting your Straight Talk signal & service at home, vehicle, or office. 


Straight Talk Cell Phone Booster For Home

Good

weboost home 4g signal booster

weBoost Home 4G for (Model #: 470101)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For 1 Room Coverage
  • Up to +60 dB Gain

Our review: 

This is an intro-kit for people wanting to dip their toes into signal boosting.

Mostly recommended for people in the city, since it's a desktop-range booster. It's capable of covering up to 1-2 rooms depending on best case scenarios like strong signal outside, poor signal inside because of building material.

Most customers report 500-750 sq ft coverage range, but again, that's dependent on the quality of the outside signal. 

Very good choice for people with homes offices like a small room and other small areas like apartments and cabins with good outside signal. 

It's got limited range, but it's a nice starter kit.


Better

weboost connect 4g signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G (Model #: 470103)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Whole Home Coverage
  • Up to +65 dB Gain

Our review:

This is the recommended model.

The most popular home kit with coverage up to 5,000 sq ft under best conditions. 

Most customers say it averages 2,000 to 3,000 sq ft for them.

The average home size in USA is ranges between 2,000 to 3,500 sq ft, so it's safe to say it generally covers most homes.

Great option for your average-sized home, small offices, farm houses, and buildings under 5,000 sq ft wide. For people in the countryside or in below average to poor signal areas, we recommend to start with this one first. 


Best

weboost connect 4g-x commercial signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G-X (Model #: 471104)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Large Building Coverage
  • Up to +70 dB Gain

Our review:

The big bad wolf. 

It's the most powerful consumer-level signal booster for home. 

For people in extremely rural areas, this may be the one they want to get any coverage. For urban and suburban areas, expect extended coverage. 

Most people can expect a coverage area of 3,500 to 5,000 sq ft with a best case scenario going all the way up to 7,500 sq ft.  

If you have extremely poor signal (remote area) or need wide coverage (large building), the weBoost Connect 4G-X is the one you call to save the day. 


Straight Talk Cell Phone Booster For Car

Good

weboost drive 4g-s signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-S (470107)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For a single smartphone
  • Up to +23 dB Gain

Our review:

If voice calls are the most important thing when you're on the road, then the Drive 4G-S is a good choice. 

Phone has to be nested inside the cradle to receive maximum amplified signal, so it also doubles as a dash mount for using map services.

Might be a tight fit on some wider smartphones/phablets, especially with rugged cases. Only boosts one cellular device while sitting inside the cradle.  


Better

weboost drive 4g-m signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-M (470108)

  • Boosts Voice, Text, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For a multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain

Our review:

Our most popular car kit. 

Boosts cellular signal up to 4 cellular devices, so fun for the whole family. 

The inside antenna is capable of broadcasting an arm's length in any direction which means whole sedan or SUV coverage. Bigger vehicles like RVs will need a specialized kit to get full inside coverage. 

Great for the city, good for the countryside. 


Best

weboost drive 4g-x signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-X for (470510)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Message, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain
  • Pro Model: 60% More reach from and to cell tower

Our review:

And our most powerful car booster kit.

The weBoost Drive 4G-X has  2x the uplink power compared to other car signal boosters. This leads to 30-60% more reach to the cell tower.

In remote, rural areas, this is the one you take to the sticks. Used by many O&G professionals, fleet, and other power users in off-the-grid areas.
