Customer Reviews
:
This is my first review but I'm writing it because I was tentative about this product without a clear yes/no about how well it worked. It had one rave review and other lower models had mixed reviews. In my home, I have at best 1 bar on each of the two frequencies (800 & 1900 MHz) inside. Outside above near the roof, I could get 3 bars each if I stood on railing because of the residential density of the area. It took about 30 minutes to setup and now I have 4 bars on both cell phone frequencies. It might take longer if you're not used to doing this sort of thing. I decided to try this model because sometimes you get what you pay for. For a home though, the $1000 units simply aren't necessary.

Some installation required
Parts:
1. Main unit amplifier with power supply. I believe that it's a bidirectional amplifier which is important.
2. Mounting hardware for antenna and base unit.
3. Weather protected antenna.
4. Decent length of coax cable to connect the outdoor antenna to the base unit. It reached my roof, ran through bedroom, through a short hall and across kitchen with space length.


Wireless Extenders Cell Phone Signal Booster Dual Band YX510 PCS/CEL

FROM Stefan Grundspan: From the varied reviews you can see it works for some people and does nothing for others. It is highly dependent on your particular conditions.
In other words, it works perfectly though it doesn't work everywhere. So when reviewers give it a low rating, what they are really saying is it either didn't work in their location or they couldn't make it work. There are two things to consider that may influence your purchase decision. The product manual does a good job of stating up front that your cell phone signal strength meter is a very relative measure. Some phones will operate fine on one bar though they will use more power than if they had 4 bars. Other phones will have connection problems with one bar. This is relevant because it doesn't really matter how many bars you have outside of your home, what matters is whether or not you can make and receive normal quality calls.

FROM K. Buelter: First, the product description makes it sound like you can just plug it in and go. While that's true in some cases be prepared for some experimentation in positioning.
One thing that's made clear in the manual is that the separation between the receiving antenna and the amplifier is very important. There needs to be VERTICAL separation, 15' at least, the more the better. If the amp and antenna are too close the amp will automatically lower its gain (it won't amplify as much) to prevent feedback (so as not to feed the amplified signal back into the antenna which in turn is amplified and etc.) You can lose a lot of performance this way. If there are walls and floors between the amp and antenna, blocking the amplified signal from feeding back into the antenna, you may not need 15'. I had only 10' but a concrete wall so there was no reduction in gain. It tells you on startup if and how much gain is reduced.

Second, you simply need a good signal to amplify. A better way to think of this product is that it pipes an outside cell signal to inside of your house. While it does do some amplification it won't turn a useless signal into a great one.

If there is a signal outside of your house and you can't make this system work there are a few options. They all add to the cost of the system but is just a question of how much you want to be able to use your phone in your house.
a. A directional antenna. There is a trade off with a directional antenna but it can pull in weaker signals if properly aligned.
b. A better higher performance omnidirectional antenna. More money and requires its own power source.
c. A very high mounting place. The manual suggests mounting the antenna in your attic. That might work. If it doesn't you may need a seriously tall pole. This may be beyond your abilities but again, it is a question of how important using your cell phone in your house is to you. You can hire a satellite installation person or similar to attach a 30'or higher pole to your house with the proper lighting protection for between $50 and $100.

Due to trees and terrain I simply could not make this system work but amazon, as usual, was great about accepting a return.


From El, El:
Bought this about a year ago, since our office has no window directly to the street so the signal is weak for everybody, that include people with Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T and so on. Checked with zBoost and they said it's fine to all of the different company phones. Read a nice review in NY Times and decided to go for it.

I tried every single way possible in the instructions, called the support, sent it back twice, but NOTHING WORKS. They just said our signal is too weak to boost. But if I can get signal leaning over the windows, won't this thing be able to increase it? Isn't that what we need this thing for??? If you can't increase or boost a weak signal then this thing is a total piece of garbage!!!

I wasted $400 for a plastic stick and a bunch of useless wires. DON'T BUY THIS FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!!!!


From C. Peters:
The manufacturer goes through great pains to make sure the signal booster does not interfere with the normal cellular transmissions. As result, it does not really boost the signals too well.
Read carefully. I did not get good reception outside ever. However a neighbor tried it and it seemed to work. So I thought I would give it a try. I spent lots of time trying to get it going by moving it around and hours with the Verizon tech supports. Ultimately, I sent it back. Also, it seems to be weather sensitive.
It may work very well for others in a less remote location.
