Any way to boost your service?

I was curious if anyone knew a way to boost your service in your home. I notice that i get almost no signal at home. Is there a cheap booster I can buy?

Re: Any way to boost your service?

sure...you have "Wireless Extenders Wireless Cellphone Signal Booster"...etc... that run about low 2's to low 3 or you can get a "Airwave" from sprint that sifter has posted, the airwave is added to your service, so you will be paying for it every month...so think about it...you will pay more or a Airwave down the road then a one time shot for a cellphone booster.

Airwave $99 to purchase then your service plan charge.
Cellphone Booster lets say $250 cost, and that is it.

Re: Any way to boost your service?

you can get airave for free...Call explain your issue...I was given it for free and my account was credited -4.99 for the monthly service for free.sprint is really good to those who are honest and explain their situation...also being a member for for over 8yrs and having more then 1 line helps....airave is awesome though...i have 5 bars all over my home now...

Re: Any way to boost your service?

Search ebay for sprint repeater. it's a little box that has a picture on the front of it. It does an excellent job, and only operates during a phone/data call, so you will not notice your signal increase until you go to make a call.... only about $30-50 they are

Re: Any way to boost your service?

Hmm... lets think about this.

If you could purchase a $3 item that will noticeably increase your signal strength, why wouldn't manufacturers put them in?

Just my $.02

Re: Any way to boost your service?

The Airave relies on a broadband connection for calling, and does not boost data connections. Two things you should be aware of.
