  3. Inside Antenna: Broadcasts the boosted signal to the area in need

A:

No, you don’t need an internet connection, but you do need an existing cell phone signal. If there is no existing signal, then you’re in a no service dead zone, meaning the amplifier cannot boost what isn’t there.

A:

There are ZERO ongoing fees. Once you purchase a booster, it’s yours for life.

For the app user, OpenSignal’s Signal Booster and Akelon’s Signal Finder (both on iPhone and Android) are excellent apps with tower locations and compass directions.
For the technically-minded or would want to be as accurate as possible, you can use your phone settings to read decibel (dB) gain. Cell phone signals are measured from -50 to -113, -50 being full strength and -113 being a no service zone. So by walking around the perimeter of your home in field test mode, you can read the dB gain to see where the incoming signal is strongest. Just remember, the closer it gets to 0, the stronger the signal.

Here are the options to display dB gain reading on your phone:
For iPhone: choose phone mode, dial *3001#12345#* then press Call.
For Android: go to Phone settings, About Phone, +Status, Signal Strength 
For Blackberry: select Tools, Settings, Status, or Option, Status.

A:

3G handles talk, text, email, and basic internet use. 4G does all of 3G functions plus fast internet. Data-heavy apps and programs such as YouTube, Netflix, Pandora, Spotify, Facebook, Google Maps, Google Chrome, etc. require lots of bandwidth, so 4G speeds would be more suitable.
In a nutshell, if you’re just looking to boost talk and text, a 3G amplifier would do fine. If you need fast internet, a 4G amplifier is your answer. Plus you get to future-proof for awhile.

A:

A 4G phone will pickup a 4G signal as well as a 3G Signal.

If you’re looking to eliminate dropped calls and improve voice quality a 3G signal booster is able to do that.

A 4G signal booster does all those things plus high-speed internet. So if you’re surfing on the web, streaming videos and music or constantly using data-heavy apps, a 4G signal booster is your best bet.

A:

Cell phone signal strength is measured in dB (decibels). Typically, -50 dB represents great signal (full bars) and -110 dB is virtually no signal (dead zone).

Cell phone signal boosters improve your coverage by amplifying signals and improving the dB gain of your cell phone.

All our cell phone signal boosters have a listed dB value for better comparison.

The number of bars on your phone?

It’s not exactly accurate, because the number of bars on your phone are SUBJECTIVE across all carriers.

Learn how to read your REAL cell phone signal strength by accessing dB signal on your iPhone with Field Test Mode.

Once you have access to dB reading, walk around the perimeter of your home. The closer the number gets to -50 dB, then you’ll know which areas of your home have the better reception.

Anything higher than a -110 dB means you’re technically in a dead zone. If your signal is teetering on the edge (-100 to -105 dB), then this means a cell phone signal booster can definitely improve your signal!
