    Weboost Cell Phone Booster Review.

    Very impressed with this unit. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

    Here's the link for the unit I have - https://www.weboost.com/products/drive-4g-x-rv



    Below is the phone by it's self. The lower the number the better signal you have.

    What does having a weak signal do? I thought you either had a signal or you didn't. Thanks.

      Signal strength will vary depending on terrain and distance from the cell tower. You want the strongest signal possible to prevent dropping calls and for internet speed. Your phone should have bars at the top that shows the strength. One or two bars is a very weak signal. Five is the strongest. The gizmo that Scott is reporting on is supposed to double your signal strength, so if you have two bars, a weak signal, it will double to four bars, a fairly strong signal.

        Now you've convinced me to spend more money.

          A cell phone and or cell data device is a radio. Radio’s operate on signal strength and signal quality, these are both measured in decibels (dBm).
          Decibels are expressed as a negative number, like -70 dBm. The closer the number is to 0, the stronger the signal. For example, -70 dBm is a stronger signal than -90 dBm.

          Have you ever had a dropped call? Well the better the signal strength the better the conversation when talking to someone and the faster the data transmission is. ever send a picture to someone and it took forever to send? Then another time you send a picture and it went really quick? Stronger signal is the reason.

          If you don't use your phone or tablet like a computer, than you wouldn't notice very much.

              Only cell phone service. Winegard makes a unit to increase WIFI at campgrounds.

                I need to invest in this setup, tired of the poor signal in a lot of areas.

                  I think I read a while back that a low signal requires much more power to use the phone. So with 1 or 2 bars, the battery is draining faster than at 4 or 5 bars.

                    You are correct, so the Weboost helps in a couple of ways!
