Squeeze out another bar or two
August 1, 2014
I use this in a heavily wooded, off-grid location that is miles and miles away from a cell tower. It doesn't turn 3G into 4G but it does squeeze out one or two more bars. I don't use the sticky backing, instead just hold it next to the battery. Would be nice if it had some kind of a velcro strap instead of sticky attachment. Awkward to use but for me it's worth the awkwardness. Would really be nice if it had interchangeable tips so it could double as an antenna for my weather radio.
Pros:
increases signal
Cons:
doesn't increase signal more than a bar or two sticky backing

It Works... If you already have some connection
July 17, 2014
I had bought the product to help me get a connection with my provider's distant cell tower when I was at my cabin out in the countryside. Sadly the antenna wasn't powerful enough for that. However, it works quite well in my basement apartment in town giving an extra two bars. So I can definitely recommend this product to help you increase the quality of your connection. It is well worth the price.
Pros:
Light, easy, price, works as promised if you already have some connection
Cons:
Not good if you are far from a cell tower

This antenna has proven its worth in the Iowa bad weather when you go into a deep ditch and need a better single to contact help. with the stick on pads to hook up to the back of the ZTE valet makes it easy as pie to use.
Pros:
fits in glove box easy to use great quality saved my life fantastic price

Universal external antenna for cell phones (inductive coupling)
January 30, 2014
Works as advertised. The trick is finding the antenna within the phone so that the induction coil can be placed over it. I'm using this inside a building where a formerly unusable signal is now 2-3 bars. The magnetic mount allows me to securely place this in the ceiling with the wire running down to my desk. (Disclaimer, I'm on the top floor so the closer to the roof the stronger the signal).
Pros:
Magnetic Mount antenna. Works without an amplifier, cheap.
Cons:
The adhesive tape is single use only. I would prefer Velcro or some other multiuse fastening mechanism.

Seems to help internet and phone reception, its hard to say exactly how much.
December 16, 2013
I have a Samsung note 4 and Sprint. Before i got this antenna at home i could not talk to my parent's on their home land line phone for long due to very bad reception (i usually wound up actually SHOUTING to try to make myself heard). I think the surrounding buildings here block the phone signal. After i started using this antenna, they asked me why the call reception was so much better! (It is-no more shouting). The antenna seems to improve internet reception too, it's all about location. There's no miracles with this antenna, as you'd expect for this price, but there is a definite increase in phone reception. I think this antenna simply gathers 3G/4G signals more efficiently then your phone can on its own, and obviously it doesn't boost the signal like a repeater. If you want and need the best phone and data reception possible skip this antenna and go right to a powered repeater, such as the Wilson Mobile pro ($100 and up) The base of the antenna is a pretty strong magnet which is helpful in (PARKED) vehicles. I doubt the magnet is strong enough to put on a moving vehicle unless you don't mind the chance of losing it forever. I glued on velcro on the antenna transmitter thing, and to the back of my otter box phone case. This makes attaching and removing the antenna lead very easy. I got the Velcro at jo ann's fabrics and used JB weld clear epoxy and put about a two pound weight on the parts while gluing so the glue would set strong. I carry this antenna around with me a lot. So to protect it from damage I carry it in a tall Starbucks plastic coffee cup, holds the antenna plus you can coil (or stuff) the cord in loosely then uncoil as needed. You can leave the antenna in the cup and just pull out the length of antenna cord you need, or remove the antenna and use the magnetic base, depending on where you are and how good reception you get. The kind of Strabucks cup i use has a screw on lid. The antenna sticks through the straw hole about 2 inches. For the money this antenna is probably worth it for a lot of people. If you have no signal i doubt you will get one but usually good for at least two bars. I use it in moving vehicles a lot (antenna inside the vehicle in his cup!) so the signal constantly changes, so I really don't know exactly how powerful this antenna is vs. no extra antenna. I'm guessing this antenna is not as good as a powered repeater like a Wilson (i've never tried one so I don't know) but a fraction of the cost of one. I noticed a definite and noticable improvement in signal strength but like i said, don't expect any miracles. IMPORTANT WARNING!!!! that they don't tell you-if you use this antenna around your/a computer for some reason KEEP THE MAGNETIC BASE OF THIS ANTENNA AT LEAST ONE FOOT AWAY FROM YOUR COMPUTER!!! the further the better! The magnet is fairly powerful and magnets can and will destroy your hard drive in an instant! Probably its safe for phone since they don't have hard drive.
Pros:
Price, magnetic base is helpful. Simple no moving parts or batteries. Portable. Modest increase in connectivity for phone and data for smart phones. No substitute for a repeater but maybe the next best thing.
Cons:
They should have the option for screwing on longer lengths to make the antenna longer, also some instructions would be nice, The manufacturers hould have an option to buy a good sturdy thick plastic case to protect the antenna. Mounting is hit or miss. Like i said i had to glue on two velcro pieces to the antenna and phone. I'll repeat it KEEP THE MAGNETIC BASE AWAY FROM COMPUTERS the magnet can and will irretrievably destroy your hard drive

Cell phone antenna
July 14, 2013
I live in a dead area where all cell signals are weak. This antenna gives me one bar which helps me from dropping calls. That's the main thing I was hoping for and this product delivers that. I was considering to move for a better signal but now I'm staying where I live.

The antenna comes with a Velcro pad. The Velcro pad consists of 2 pieces (hooks and loops).
