My question on something like this is if the cell phones will conveniently use this if the cell's signal is poor from a conventional tower (i.e. I install one in my house and my and my four neighbor's verizon signal is poor, so suddenly all my bandwidth disappear because we're all now using the booster all unknown to me).

None of the "solutions" I've seen will allow me to use the wired extensions I already have in every room of my house. I would never replace my landline with a cell phone I had to carry from room to room.

Sprint solution is called the AirAve, not the Airwave. Also I am not sure about this on the Verizon or AT&T versions but on the Sprint one the calls made while on the AirAve do not come off your plan minutes, which imho is a big deal. The lack of 3G access though is a problem and something I hope they work out real soon.

Using your cell phone as your primary home phone. I have used the "Xlink BT" in our rural home for a year and it works well. This unit connects wirelessly to your cell phone and is then hardwired to your regular phone. We have a primary telephone with several satelite units. It has the capability of connecting to 3 cellphones. Hope this helps

Does it handle data traffic? What speed can it handle? Any bandwidth caps from ISP internet providers?

If cheap Verizon added more directional radiators to their local towe,r WE their customers would not need to spend $400 bucks to solve the reception/transmission problem they have created !!!!

Hey we have bought verizon phones... and activated them to have service that they claim is the best.... We shouldn't have to pay for something so we can use our phones at home. They should give them to us to keep their customers. What happened to their customer service?

Ok so you have limited cell coverage in your area and you install this mini cell tower device that allows you to use your cellphone inside your home and this mini tower connect to your broadband network

so your paying a cell bill each month to make call inside your house using a device that you
had to buy and that you may be charge a monthy fee on a broadband network that you pay a monthy fee all just to make a call inside your house Daaaaaaaa landline or at least if you have a small signal outside look into a signal repeater ( antenna outside- repeater- antenna inside

I have finished my service contract and instead of a new phone from Verizon (or a competitor) I asked for this comparably priced item so their coverage map (apparently of fantasyland) has some connection to reality. They said no, pay for it. Would it be socialistic to demand the service they advertise? And we are supposed to shop around for health care with the same government concern for consumers? Besides, they comments I have read says it doesn't work that well anyway!

This is CRAZY!!!!!

We have to pay for a signal booster to boost the poor signal Verizon offers???

Just fix my signal, don't try to sell me more crap!!!

I live in a rural hole on the earthapparently because no company has cell phone coverase at my house. I can only have dial up or crappy satellite internet. I can go about 2 miles in any direction and get signal. I have waisted a lot of money on crap trying to get better signal. All BS aside does anybody know of a booster that will actually help my situation????

I have been a verizon wireless customer for years. My replacement phove HTC Incredible 2 gets zero signal when upstairs in my home. Seeing it's a problem caused by verizon I called them to inquire about this product. I was informed by a supervisor not only would they not provide the extender at no cost or at a reduced cost there is a mothly charge which is the same as havivg an extra line added to my account. So Verizon ststing there is no additional mothly charge in this article is totally false.

I suddenly have poor service in my home. I went to Verizon and they upgrade some software, that didn't work. then they said download the software fro the new Iphone, that didn't work. Then they tried to sell me the extender for $250. I refused. May I remind you of the whole "can you hear me now" thing!
They offered me a discount on the extender is said "no"! Then they called me and said they would send it to me for free. Well, that's more like it. Haven't received it yet though.
