    Hey guys, ok so this is the situation. My phone gets really crappy signal.I am looking for any way to boost my signal. I don't have too much knowledge, but willing to try. Any signal boosters or anything actually help?

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


  2. Hey man, I am not too knowledgable myself on signal boosters, but I have searched through this forum and found different PRL versions for download, which can be manually changed through CDMA Workshop. Then you can just try different PRL versions to find the one that gets you the best signal in your area. If you search the forum you will find what I'm talking about. I hope this will be of some help to you.

    Why not just buy some pringles and cut the can into a satellite?

    I've tried the apps and they never made a noticeable difference, an actual repeater would be the way go, the ones listed above are active repeaters and thus costly, however you could maybe use a passive repeater which would be an antenna (cut to freq.)inside, a coax to the outside with another antenna (cut to freq.)

    I like the cut of your jib.

    The passive one works fairly well as long as the outside antenna is a directional one aimed at the tower.

    Regarding apps in reference to your signal, I like "OpenView." It does not run a script to "boost" the signal, rather, it searches for the closest towers to you and where they are in respect to your position. There is a "refresh" option that will automatically refresh your network to the nearest tower. Of course, rebooting your phone would do that, this happens to do it without having to reboot. I have noticed a "slight" and I do mean slight increase in signal strength on occasion from refreshing.

    LOL, from the line of work I do for a living I get to deal with cellular radios for alarm systems. Being a technician, it is hard not to get technical. :laugh:
