    This item does exactly what it say it does. Had no signal to 1 bar at home, hooked this item up and now have 4 to 5 bars. We never did get good Sprint network where we live but now its not bad at all. Only downfall with this product is that if you use it in your home you need to use the usb port in your computer unless you have a adapter for your electric outlet, it only comes with the car outlet. Also you need a bluetooth headset if you move around because you have to keep your cell on the booster cradle for it to work, when you remove it from the cradle you lose the boost it gives. Other then that it works great. Only reason I give it a 4 is having to keep it in the cradle for it to work and them not telling you that you need a bluetooth to move around.

    Outstanding gain in signal. Bought the new 4g Thunderbolt and lost coverage in areas I had it before. I would lose signal at my house. While sitting in the cradle I have 3g 3-4 bars all the time. Great product! I purchased this in Newport WA. at the local Verizon Dealer. I could have saved $18.00 at WalMart.

    I purchased this product hoping to fill a specific need. I camp at a campground where it is almost impossible to get a good cell signal. This has been a problem for years. To make a call I had to drive two miles outside the campground. When I heard about this product I thought it was probably too good to be true, but I decided to give a try. After buying the Wilson Sleek and installing it, my wife and I drove 30 miles to the campground to try it out. Wow! I saw my signal go from "no signal" to a 3 bars, 3G signal. In the past we always got the "searching or no service". This past weekend was the true test. We went camping and hooked it up in the camper; 3 bars, 3G. We then launched our boat and moved the sleek to the boat; same result. The lake has always been a dead zone for cell service, but no more. We cruised the lake calling and receiving calls all weekend. Great product. Only con is being tied to the cradle and wires, but a small price to pay to finally having cell service.

    I purchased this product for my home. It really does increase your signal strength. The bad part is that once you buy this, you need to also buy an ac/dc adapter. I also purchased a new land line phone that has blue tooth and pared it with my cell phone because you're not supposed to hold the sleek with your cell phone up to your ear at the same time and once you remove your cell phone from the sleek, you're back to square one....no signal.

    I cannot really give a fair review as we purchased this strictly for inside the house. I know it is portable and used as a traveling antenna in the vehicle, but that isn't our primary need. ATT is so poor of service in our area that without anything at all there is no service once we turn on our road let alone in the house. With the sleek next to a window and plugged in, we can get 3-4 bars and use the speaker phone for calls and internet. That alone meets our needs for a phone. The only drawback is that you are tied to one spot to talk or text or otherwise with the speaker or headset. We knew this when we purchased it tho and was willing to compromise since the price was so affordable and we needed service. The plus side is that if we ever need to travel, it can be unplugged and put in the vehicle to take care of all those dead spots you run across. WE weren't disappointed as this was all we expected and we would definately recommend this product.

    • A. The power cord is a USB cable. I bought a $4 AC to USB adapter, seems to be working fine. I plugged the USB into the computer and the booster powered up and started working. Unfortunately my mouse stopped working so I went back the to the AC to USB adapter.

    • A. It draws power through a usb socket so if you have a one watt wall to usb adapter you are good to go. You will need an antenna mounted somewhere. The indoor kit is available for about $23 total if you shop around, but if you are like me you will run it off a usb adapter and set the antenna near the window. Buy a headset (wired or wireless) to go with this beauty or you are stuck with the speakerphone. It would probably run off a 700 mA adapter. usb adapters are available from ebay or direct from china for $3-5 total.
