iPhone Signal Booster Guide & Review: More Bars Instantly

on September 12, 2017

Boosting signal to your iPhone

So you've searched the internet, downloaded apps, contacted Apple, thought about switching carriers, and have looked up and down, but it's still the same result: poor cell phone reception.

Doesn't matter if it's an iPhone 5, 6, 7, or even 8-- with no service, you've got a beautiful paperweight. 

The question is why. 

Is it AT&T's or T-Mobile's fault? Is your iPhone faulty? Do the antenna gods hate you?


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

Cell phone signals are radio waves, the AM-FM kind. And like all radio waves, they are easily disrupted. Almost everything under the sun can alter, absorb, and block your 3G & 4G LTE signal.

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, drywall, 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 iPhone signal.

The Solution:

Everything changes with a cell phone booster.

A signal booster takes any existing off-the-air 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 carrier 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 (so even Android users get a boost).
  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, does it really work?"


Why the asterisk?

You'll need existing cell phone signal outside your home

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

So here's a simple test. 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 iPhone.  

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

iPhone Cell Phone Booster For Home


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 a starter kit for those who are on the fence.

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 single office, home office (SOHO) and small areas like apartments and cabins with good outside signal. 

In general, best to think as a desktop to small room booster. 


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:

Now this is the one we generally start with.

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

Real world conditions put it around 2,000 to 3,000 sq ft for most customers.

The average home size in USA is around 2,500 to 3,500 sq ft, so 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. 


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 grand slam. The one-handed touchdown catch. The poster dunk.

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 city slickers, 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. 

iPhone Cell Phone Booster For Car


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 solid 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.  


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. 


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 off-the-grid areas.

iPhone Cell Phone Booster For Commercial Buildings

WilsonPro 70 Plus (Model #: 463127)

wilson pro 70 plus signal booster

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

Our review:

Cellular boosting solutions for buildings range from 25K to 100K sq ft. although it's possible to go up to 500K and beyond. The WilsonPro 70 Plus is the sweet spot with coverage up to 50,000 sq ft. But of course, real-world use puts it at 25,000 to 35,000 sq ft with spot coverage for priority areas. 

Many of our professional installers and their enterprise customers report much better service, especially when relying on our  installation services
