Question On Antenna Booster

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Albert Martinez, Sep 4, 2003.

  1. Hello guys I have a question I have a Samsung a310 cell phone and I
    ordered an item for my phone and they gave me a free internal antenna
    booster. The question is is it worth it putting it on my phone are they
    effective? Thanks for your replies in advance.

    Put it this way...if you can still talk to people without the battery in
    the phone, then the booster will make a big difference.

    The booster is worth ten times what you paid for it.

    Ditto...biggest pile of marketting crap ever invented. They'll try to
    tell you "ours is different...we use better materials...blah blah blah".
    They sell because people figure what's $10 bucks? If it doesn't work,
    I'll throw it away. Then they throw it away.

    Don't waste your money.

    If you're talking of that little sticker that goes under the battery, in
    my professional opinion, it does absolutely nothing. I know you can get
    them free from some websites out there, and again, you get what you pay
    for!

    the antenna booster you are talking about is only a piece of plastic
    with some gold/metal looking paint on it. the only person it benefits is
    the guy who sold it to you. dont put it on your phone whatsoever.

    Sorry Charlie, no Tuna for you. Unless the boaster is specifically
    designed to run off your cell phone's internal system it won't work.
    With a CDMA phone what you need is a cell phone with a 1/4 to 1/2
    extendable stub. The longer the better. There are external boosters
    and antennas available but they cost like around 500 to 1,000 to
    install.

    the only way this sticker works is by "reducing the users common sense"
    no fcc or UL labels...

    Another waste of money is those light up antennas and the "radiation
    blocker" screens that you put over the speaker. The radiation comes from the
    antenna and the radiation is less harmful than living down the street from
    an AM radio station.

    I'm suprised that they are still allowed to sell that garbage as the US
    Attorney General has come down on two of these companies (one in Calif.
    and the other in Fl.) about false advertising and general deception.

    I guess it hasn't stopped the distributor until they run out of the
    stuff.

    for those "radiation screens" to be effective
    #1 it would have to go between you and the antenna
    #2 it would have to be metal screen that is grounded

    So those stick on wastes of money should be illegal to sell, because they
    are making invalid claims. One word: Trash

  15. Absolutely correct, except for the "grounded" part in #2.
    "Grounded" doesn't have much meaning at these wavelengths.

    At these frequecies not even # 1 is true. As there are studies (don by Dr.
    Q. Balzano of Motorola) where the application of shields actually cause an
    increase in the spacific absorbtion rate.

    Absolutely correct, except for the "grounded" part in #2.
    "Grounded" doesn't have much meaning at these wavelengths.

    I guess that's why in the OP's case, they gave it away with the phone
    accessory he purchased.
