Any suggestions that actually work to boost cell phone reception in marginal areas? Do commercially available products actually work? Or does anyone know of a DIY modification that improve reception?
Cell phone reception boosters
In Wisconsin no problems but I winter in Arizona near Casa Grande. I have consumer cellular which uses AT & T towers. I see adds for boosters but many say that they can not be used with third party providers (AT & T that is). Do those cheap internal antennae work at all? Bobger (currently aka NastyMcnasty)
Who is your provider? I have Verizon and there is NO cell service where I live. If you have DSL, or Internet access and Verizon you can purchase a Network Extender. It provides 3G service to your cell phone. For the most part it is VoIP for your cell phone. It is a one time purchase (was $250 when I bought mine). I have had it for two years with little to no complaints. In the cell settings on your phone you just need to disable LTE for voice and it works pretty well.
