1 out of 5 eggsdoes not work

Pros: none

Cons: Does not work. I read the other reviews and thought I was doing something wrong. The unit did increase the signal reception by 1 or 2 bars, but it does nothing to the out bound signal so I am still not able to make a call. I have tried to use this on several camping trips where the signal is very weak but still exist with drop calls, but this devices did nothing to help my phone or the other 6 peoples phones we had along our trips. We had a lost family in the woods and this devise would have come in handle if it worked to call for help, but we had to drive only a 1/2 mile away to pick up a signal and place a call. In shorty it simply does not work and I believe most of the reviews are fake.

4 out of 5 eggsWould recommend

Pros: Has given me better signals in our area especially in my driveway, used to get 1-2 bars now 5 mostly.

Cons: the cradle to the dash connection is very flimsy, could be made better with tighter fit instead of being so loose.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: It takes my ATT 3GS from one bar to 4-5 bars in my home.

Cons: Both the antenna cord and USB power cable are a bit short; I had to add a USB hub up on my desk so I can actually sit up and talk with the phone in the cradle.

I feel like I'm talking on an old school Brick when it's in the cradle, but at least I can make calls now...

Other Thoughts: Knocking off one egg for the short cables.

ATT gets no eggs for inadequate coverage in the Dallas metro area...

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible

Pros: -SIGNIFICANT SIGNAL BOAST!!!!!!
-Works Great in office or car
-Easy Setup
-No special connector needed for the phone.
-Use micro USB power source (similar to many phones, cameras, etc)

Cons: The only down sides are you have to be connected to a power source and the antenna cord. The Antenna cord is fairly long. However, for an office setting or the car that is a non issue.

Other Thoughts: This thing is awesome. I was looking for a cheaper mobile way to improve my cell signal. I barely got a signal in my office or at home despite having a window with in my office. If I got the call connected, it would drop. I got many laughs trying to use the phone with my face next to the window or sprinting outside trying not to lose the signal.
I now get no worse than 2 bars and as much as 4. I haven’t dropped a call since. I put the antenna next to the window and my phone in the Cradle and I am ready to go. You don’t have to plug your phone into the device. It just has to be in the Cradle. This is completely worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsBreak out of the metal box!

Pros: I bought this for work. My HTC was lucky to get 1 bar and often lost data all together. I brought this in and I'm getting 2 (of 4) solid bars and occasionally 3 bars.

Cons: I would have liked the antenna connector to have been a right angle connector but I can get that later.

Other Thoughts: The adjustable holders make it possible to also charge the phone while its in the holder, a pretty good design.

4 out of 5 eggsSimply Amazing

Pros: Boosts signal, including data speeds! I was averaging around .35Mbps now ill be at an average of .93Mbps and that is using the antenna inside. I went from 0 to (rare) 2 bars all the way up to a steady 4 (5 if im lucky). Looks like it would fit ANY phone. No wires connected to the phone, it just sits there. I used two different arms to hold it in place just the right tightness (not so loose it will fall out at any time, and not so tight I have to fight it).

Cons: The connection of the cradle to the mounting braket is a weak design when mounting horizontal. So if using in your car, you should really make sure its secure, or use tape/glue. Mounting vertical would be no problem. That is the only bad part. I think if I really force the connection, it would stay but, its just not ideal.

Other Thoughts: Bracket/Mounting connection is what loss this product 1 egg. Otherwise it would be a 5 egg.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Learning how the New Egg RMA process works.

Cons: DOA.

Once I received the product, I realized that it is not truly "universal", as it only works with AT&T GSM phones for 3G.

If the replacement works at all, I'll be limited to Edge on my T-Mobile Nexus One. This is due to it boosting the AT&T 3G 800MHz & 1900MHz bands, where T-Mobile 3G uses 900MHz, 1700MHz and 2100MHz. According to their tech support, they also don't support the 4G frequencies used by Sprint, etc.

Other Thoughts: I wish New Egg would just let me return it, since it will be useless to me after the RMA. I should have ordered it from a different retailer that would allow a return.

5 out of 5 eggsStill Extremeley Happy

Pros: This thing just works! I went to the deer camp this weekend where we have no signal at all - not even while standing outside. Put my iphone along with testing other hunters phones and I went from NO SERVICE to 4 bars with internet (3G). Its amazing

Cons: NEXTEL phone didn't work with it.

Other Thoughts: This is an update of my 1st review. Just wanted to give you an indication of the drastic difference this device makes (from NO SERVICE to 4 bars)
