Yes, You Need a Cell Phone Booster!

A customer asked us…

I have the latest cell phone and service from one of the major mobile carriers. Why do I need a cell phone booster?

Here’s the answer: Because you can still find yourself in an area with poor signal, which can cause dropped calls, delayed texts, and slow network speeds. This is no fault of your carrier or phone manufacturer. Cell phone boosters help fix these issues at home and in your vehicle so you can communicate with others. So yes, even when you have the best of the best, you still need a cellular signal booster. To be honest, everyone who owns a wireless device should also have the means to boost the signal.

Your Entire Life is Connected

Do we even have to tell you how important your wireless device is? You know that better than anyone. If you’re like most of us, you use your cell phone to do a lot more than make calls. Perhaps you use your device for some or most of these reasons:

  • Text friends and family
  • Check social media
  • Access personal and work emails
  • Stay connected to your job
  • Play video games
  • Watch videos
  • Keep up on the latest news
  • And much more

It’s very easy to see how dependent you are on your wireless device. Don’t believe me? Try putting it in a drawer and leaving it there for the 30 minutes. Sure, you’ll say you can do it; but when you start hearing the buzzing sound that tell you have notifications, you’ll rip that drawer open within a matter of seconds. It’s just too tempting, isn’t it? It’s okay. I tried it and didn’t even make five minutes before reaching for my Android.

When You See How Important Your Cell Phone Is…

… You’ll understand how dependent you are on good reception from the cell phone towers. Without it, you’re cut off from having instant access to the rest of the world. No one can afford that in today’s wireless age. Here’s the thing, your home is literally built out of materials that block cellular signal: energy efficient windows, foam-injected insulation, and metal construction. Even the latest cell phone and fastest wireless network won’t help much in these circumstances.

How You Know You Need One…

… You’re constantly getting frustrated over cell phone problems in your home. We’re talking dropped calls and texts, shabby audio quality, and voicemails that show up hours after they were sent. When you go outside your home, most or all of these problems seem to disappear. Sound familiar? The problem is simple: the signal from the cell phone towers is being blocked by the building materials inside your home. Since most people live in homes that use these materials, we say nearly everyone needs a cell phone booster.

Are you wondering how a cellular signal booster will help in these situations? It’s very simple: if you can get at least one bar of connectivity, these devices will enhance that signal. That’s why these devices are sometimes called cell phone amplifiers because that’s what they do. Here’s a close work at what’s going on inside and outside of these amazing devices:

  1. The powerful, outdoor antenna accesses voice and 3G, 4G LTE data signal then delivers it to the booster.
  2. The booster receives the signal, amplifies it, and sends it to the indoor antenna.
  3. The indoor antenna broadcasts the signal throughout your home, office, vehicle, boat, etc.
  4. This process simultaneously works in reverse every time you make a call or send data.

A cell phone signal booster offers a reliable way to reduce dropped calls, missed texts, and slow or interrupted data.

You Also Need a Vehicle Cell Phone Booster

That’s right, you do. Think about it, you use your cell phone when you’re driving to operate your GPS or talk to friends. (Please DO NOT text when you’re behind the wheel, though!) You can’t be sure that every area you drive through has optimal cell service. For example, coverage can be spotty in some rural areas, while tall buildings in the city can sometimes block signal. Here’s the kicker: you never know when you might be driving into an area with poor reception until you get there!

The bottom line here is that you need reliable cell phone coverage wherever you go. Having the latest cell phone and the biggest wireless carrier helps, for sure, but that’s not foolproof. A vehicle cell phone booster practically guarantees flawless reception wherever you go. Like most home cell boosters, these are also easy to install, which is good news for most people that want to slap one of these devices on their car, truck, SUV.
