    I only have 1-2 bars in my house at any given time and that is thready. Often I drop calls. I have been considering an in-home signal booster that would work with a Verizon HTC Droid Eris. I know that Verizon has its own "booster" that works off of a high-speed internet connection. Has anyone used these? How well do they work?

    Also, does anyone know about the frequency on the Verizon network or with the Eris? I think mine may be 1900 MHz for this area, which poses a problem. Most of the boosters I have looked at are only for 800 - 900 MHz phones. If anyone could point me toward some answers or resources in this regard, I would really appreciate it.

    Finally, which booster manufacturer has the best signal for the best price? I need help! :sad:

    Same problem here too... Very bad reception, dropped calls and most of all the slowest 4G ever. It's frustrating. I tried signal booster apps, I called Verizon a few times, nothing made it.
    So I started looking for a 4G booster and I found this one.
    Cellphone Mate CM700 Signal Booster for Verizon
    It is kinda expensive for me so I would like to have some opinions about it before I buy it.
    Does anyone use it here? Does your signal rally get better?
    Thanks!

    There are cellular boosters for around $125-$500 depending on the system you want.
    I had 1 bar at home, I have full bars after installation.

    Not sure on 4G though.

    google "Cellular repeaters"

    In my home i have 0-1 bars, I have been using a Wilson sleek booster. This is actually a car booster, but it adapted easily to an electrical socket in my home and i have full bars all the time. The biggest set back is the phone needs to be in a cradle to work and it has a small 4 inch magnetic antenna that i attached to a fan in the window, but with a blue tooth head set i can move around about 30 feet from the phone. Not the best solution but i used the phone mostly tethered to my laptop for internet. (79.99 at best buy) Now i have gotten rid of my land line and found a used z boost on craigs list, no where near the signal that i get with the (wilson sleek) but i expect it to be better with an antenna upgrade.

    Yes, I heard Wilson products work really well.
    They only offer a 4G booster with T-Mobile for now, though.
    I read this article about them joining forces with Verizon, so that should lead to 4G boosters, I guess.
    I will probably wait a little longer before I buy one of these 4G boosters and see what manufacturers are working on.
