This item has been upgraded to the all new US version Wilson 460107 Sleek 4G.
Friendly Wilson Amplifiers Message: The Wilson 813426 Sleek 4G has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is replaced by the Wilson 460107 Sleek 4G, the new, improved, and FCC-certified 2014 and beyond model.
The new quint-band cradle signal booster from Wilson is a vehicle solution that amplifies cellular signals in the 700 MHz, 800 MHz, 1700MHz, 1900 MHz, and 2100MHz frequencies. It works with AT&T's 4G LTE network, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint's LTE network. To maximize efficiency of 4G band use, this advanced Sleek has a manual switch that allows the user to select between 4G AT&T and 4G Verizon bands. All other 4G, 3G, and 2G frequencies will work equally well on both band selections. It also works with most 2G and 3G networks. It provides a gain of up to 29dB, delivers more than 20 times the power of a typical cell phone, and is designed to keep your cellular device connected even in weak signal areas, minimizing occurences of dropped calls and improving data transfer rates.
The cradle is a signal amplifier which securely holds your phone, mounts on your vehicle's vents, and is physically connected to a 4-inch external antenna with a 10-foot coaxial cable. The cradle antenna requires direct physical contact with the back of your cell phone. Optional accessories are available to mount your Sleek on the dashboard or cup holder; there is even a kit that allows you to use your Sleek at home at the office.

I have tried several types of signal boosters. The area that I am in is very flat and more than 15 miles from the nearest cell tower and really not in the line of transmission. The Wilson unit worked very well and allowed cell calls that previously was only marginal.

I received this about a week ago and have been trying it out. So far I am not impressed. It dosnt really amplify the signal much, and the data transfer speeds haven't really shown improvement. I am trying to use it some and see if it maintains a more steady reliable signal. Also it gets very hot, if you touch the metal antenna connection it is very uncomfortable to hold on to it (ouch). I called tech support and they had me check a couple things and said it was working, Also said I should not expect much from a weak noisy signal? They did recommend buying different antennas to see if that would help (more money). Didn't get to discuss much with the tech cause he said it was time for him to go home and I should call back the next day, they did try to call me the next day but I was not available. So far I sure don't see where this is worth the money I paid. Maybe it is defective ? (heat?) Not sure, I will keep trying it and see if I can get back with tech support when they don't have to go on break, go to lunch, or leave for the day. I have not tried to plug the phone into the side usb so it will stay charged yet cause its getting so hot now I don't think its a good idea. Hopefully I can get back on this review and update it as I find out more - especially if it proves to do what I bought it for --- improve signal strength and data speed. (and it dosnt catch on fire)

The signal is really good, this is actually the second one we've bought. The one that I just purchased for my boyfriend seems to have some issues with the antenna & power connection getting hot. The antenna connection gets so hot you don't want to leave your finger on it to long. The dash behind the booster is also getting pretty warm. The one in my vehicle doesn't have this problem. How do we take care of this issue?

Before I had Sleek the signal was steady to move up and down while driving. Now it seems to drop to 1 or 2 bars then suddenly jumps to 4 or 5 bars.
Without the sleek it would be 3 to 5 bars. I do live in the city where there is a strong signal everywhere. Maybe my results will be better if I travel to more rural areas. I will keep trying it out.

So far so good like the enhanced signal - if it continues to perform well we will buy two additional antenna's for our vehicles - so that we are not constantly dragging everything in and out of the cars and house.

Easy to install, bumped signal from 2 or 3 bars to 5 bars (max) immediately.
