    Hello, Does anyone know where the antenna on the RAZR MAXX located?

    I live in a remote area and even with the superior reception of the R MAXX, I wanted to boost it so I bought an external antenna and signal amp.

    It didn't do me much good though and one of the things that technical support suggested before returning was to find out exactly where the antenna in the R MAXX was located and place the external connection there.

    couldn't find anything in the usual google/ bing searches.

    Thank you in advance.

    i feel like you misunderstood or the technical was not very technical.

    your signal booster should light up an area around it and the booster needs to be placed where it can see the signal best.

    the phone just needs to be well inside the area. example you have it mounted outside your home with the signal line run in the house. most broadcast 1000-3000 ft area.

    you dont say exactly what you have so i am going on something like a wilson setup

    Thanks Bhero,
    The setup I have is with a Yagi directional antenna, and a cellphone mate direct connect amp, with a velcro pad that needs to be placed on the phone as close to the antenna as possible. It does not transmit a wireless signal.

    Wait.. This is a real thing? You hook your phone up to a external antenna and walk around with it all day?
