Network and Signal Booster Apps

Do those Network and signal booster apps really work?  I downloaded a couple of them and nothing changed?

Sorry for the inconvenience. Apps don’t boost any signal on the device. Are you talking about signal/coverage inside or outside the house?

We live approximatly 50 to 75 feet from our family's house that has the wi-fi we are going off of and we don't have very good signal to make calls or get on internet.

If you're not getting any signal inside the house, Sprint has a signal booster (Airave) free of charge and only requirement to operate Airave device is that you got to have High-speed DSL/ Cable Modem. You can go to this site to check if your area is covered under Airave coverage.

Re: Network and Signal Booster Apps

Abe,

When you use the words "free of charge" is that for both the Airave box itself AND the service? Is there any deposit required on the eqipment? Also does the Airave help with poor data connections?

Re: Network and Signal Booster Apps

"Free of Charge" refers to both device as well as service.Yes, Airave helps data connections on cell phones too.

 

How the AIRAVE™ Access Point Works

The AIRAVE™ Access Point is a femtocell, a personal base station with a radio unit that is similar to a cell tower radio. The base station uses a low-power antenna to transmit voice and data cellular signals in your home or small office. Base stations give you better cellular coverage, which means a stronger signal and improved voice quality. Also, data applications on smartphones, such as mobile email devices, work faster. The AIRAVE connects to Sprint’s network through your broadband Internet connection. Outgoing calls go from the AIRAVE over a secure connection to Sprint’s network; incoming calls reverse this route.

Thank you for the info. Have to go check it out at the local Sprint store.

After 7 years of loyalty and after hours of phone call to Sprint they just said I have to pay for $70 worth of long distance calls that I did not make.
