    • A. The box contains 50 ft of cable, ac adapter, inside antenna and an exterior antenna along with the unit. It is easy to set up. Just screw(screws inculded) the exterior antenna onto the house or attach to an exterior pole with the mounting bracket which is included. Run the cable to the unit, attach the interior antenna and plug the unit into the ac.

    • A. It comes with everything you need, but be careful to verify that you have bars on your phone where you install the antenna. If you can't get reception outside on your phone, this equipment will not help. If there is no signal available, it cannot re-send anything.

    • A. It comes with everything you need to install it except the sky hook. It has a mast bracket to install it to a mast like for a TV etc but you can not mount it to a mast because it will not work, per their tech support. It uses standard TV coax (the small 75 ohm stuff) and there is 50 feet in the box, plenty for any installation.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    Installed at deer camp out in the boonies. You had to wander around outside holding your phone up looking for a signal, make a fast call and pray it went thru. Were never able to get ANY signal in the camp house, now we can make and receive calls while in room the unit is in. We get 1 to 3 bars and occasionally 3G service depending on the phone. Prior to installation you had to turn your phone off or it would search for a signal and use up the battery fast, now there is enough signal in most rooms to leave the phone on and receive messages/texts while you're out hunting. IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS!!! The higher you can safely put the outside antenna the better. We plan to replace the provided coax cable with 50' of RG6 to see if it improves the performance. From a safety stand point, i.e. 911 service, DEFINITELY worth the cost. The ability to receive messages while out and receive and make calls reliably without having to go outside in the cold and rain really make it worth it. Highly recommend.

    After reading all of the reviews for this product, I was concerned by several of the negative reviews. I decided to give it a try knowing I could return it to WalMart if it didn't work. My first attempt to install the system was the "Easy" way shown in the directions by suction cupping the antennae to a window. This did not work at all. I called the manufacturers customer service number and they explained the system will only work if the antennae is 15 feet above the base. I then installed the antenna on the top of my chimney and ran the coaxial cable into the house and down a wall. Once I achieved the required 15 feet of verticle separation between the antennae and the base, the system worked perfectly. I went from absolutely NO SERVICE within my home ( due to solar window screens and TechShield Plywood) to 4 out of 5 bars. I noticed the phone needs to be within clear site of the base to work properly and therefore I installed it on the bar top counter in our Kitchen near the center of the home. I am now very pleased with the results.

    As an early review said this thing is basically a repeater,weak signal in gets you weak signal out.I tried it inside attic(using my gsm/straighttalk/att nokia e-71 and e-5 to guage signal) and was only getting 3-4 bars with that fading down to 1 at times and ran the cable temporairly on floor to try the base unit in different places and heights,etc.with little success.Then I got on top of the roof of my one story house(1200 sq.ft) and found a good solid 5 bars on one end so I ended up mounting the attenna there and mounted the base on the wall in a hallway in the center of house and now get full 6 bars for most of house and no less than 3 bars in the furtherest corners of house plus my 3g works great.Point is make sure you have a good solid signal and if thats outside the house go ahead and save yourself a bunch of wasted time and put it there.

    I live in a metal clad mobile home, the outside walls are aluminum siding, the roof is weatherproof galvanized metal. I always got a very poor signal on my phone, I thought that I was just living in an area where the signal was poor to begin with. After installing the signal booster (which I did all by myself) the signal increased to FULL strength. Good weather or bad makes no difference, no more dropped calls, voicemail comes through strong, no more static during the calls that I do get, in every part of the house, good clear phone service! The only additional equipment (parts) that I needed was 8 feet of PVC plastic electrical conduit tubing and three U shaped clamps to mount the exterior antenna to the side of the house above the roofline. everthing else needed was included with the signal booster device. I do not need to step outside (cold/rainy days) anymore to make or receive phone calls. I couldn't be happier, unless I could win the lottery.

    I live in the woods, in a house with a metal roof. Had to be near a window in order to have good signal. This product has definitely improved that situation. I can be almost anywhere in the house and get good voice signal now. However, I really needed a boost for my data signal, as I use a smartphone mobile hotspot for Internet access. That was the reason I purchased this signal booster. It does not help that much at all, so that is a big disappointment. Verizon tells me that the data and voice signals are two different networks, so this product does what it says; it is a CELL PHONE SIGNAL BOOSTER, not a data signal booster.
