1 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: I didn't need to call 911

Cons: It just don't work. My phone works if I stand by the window. With this handy item my phone still works but I have to stand by the window. It seems to get way hotter than it should and unless I hold the phone next to it I get no signal, unless I stand by the window. It takes a 3 bar signal and turns it into a 1 bar signal until I make a call then it drops the call.

Other Thoughts: 5 days spent waiting for it to get here, 4 hours finding out it don't work and now I have to find something that does. It might just be a bad unit, but I don't spend my money and time to do Quality Assurance for a company, that's their job

5 out of 5 eggsA Portable Cellphone Amp that works

Pros: Easy Setup and Take Down.
5v power so with the addition of a portable usb charger it's completely portable
All the necessary power connections for use nearly everywhere.
Improves a spotty signal

Cons: Only a 2-3ft usable radius

Other Thoughts: I've been using this amplifier for several weeks now. I've used it in my vehicle during my drive to and from work as well as on my ship while at work
I've tested the signal via my phones included signal information screen and during the test, my phones received signal went from -85dbi with the amplifier unplugged to -60dbi with it plugged in so I know the amplifier works. FYI, phone signal bars tell you nothing. All android phones have an information tab in settings that will give you actual -dbi of signal strength.

One thing many people don't seem to understand is that this will amplify a marginal signal, but will not give you a signal when there is no signal to amplify. I think many of the poor reviews are from people who expect this to boost a non existent signal.

On a couple occasions I had to put my phone in airplane mode and then take it out to get data working. I see this as more of a phone issue though. It seemed to happen when I was on the edge of LTE and the phone would switch back and forth between poor LTE and amplified 3g. Not really a con with the Mobile Pro, just a hassle brought to light because of the amplifier doing it's job. Usually in these locations I wouldn't have had date period.
