This product works beautifully and gives me full cell phone reception in my house. I used to have almost every call drop and sometimes not be able to call out or send texts at all but now everything works!

The device works as advertised but they don't mention a few things which you have to find out on your own. For that reason, I give it 4 stars.

Does not support 4G

Documentation does not provide information about its connectivity requirements. If you have a DSL connection that has a built-in router with a firewall, it's up to you to figure out what security settings this device needs to have opened up. Alternatively, this means turning off the router's firewall altogether.

GPS requirement can be problematic. I sometimes use this device in an urban location where the nearest window is facing another building and therefore prevents getting a good GPS signal. It would be nice if this device had some workarounds for dealing with this issue. For example, the device could potentially connect via a high speed wireless AC or wireless N connection as an alternative to an wired connection via ethernet cable. This would allow it to be placed next to a window where it could get its gps signal more easily.

This Airave 2.5+ Signal Booster was given to me by my daughter and son-in-law. Sprint provided it to them for free, but they did not need it as I did. What a welcome surprise this was. I had complained to them that I often had my sound breaking up or had dropped calls on my cell phone. It became annoying as it occurred when talking with family and friends, not just while on an important business call.

So this gift solved my problem. I live in the exurbs with a steep hill near one side of the house that obviously weakens my microwave signal. In addition to that, I tend to wander around when on the phone and sometimes I am on the phone in a distant part of the house or in the garden yet this product still keeps me connected to my Sprint signal via its effective antenna whose wire extends to the window.

By the way, as far as I know this works only for Sprint phones. Well, I can report to you that this little device works wonders. I NEVER have my sound breaking up or a dropped call now. I have the Plus version, the AIRAVE 2.5+. You can connect it to your PC or LAN router, or both, to the AIRAVE's LAN ports. It can take up to two hours to wait for the connection to complete, but took my unit only 45 minutes or so. After that, you are good to go. The AIRAVE supports up to SIX phones. And you receive a free unit if you are a Sprint customer:

I have nothing negative to report. This Signal Booster just works. What can I say? NO MORE DROPPED CALLS OR SOUND BREAKING UP...ever. I love it. My cell phone reception problems are entirely solved due to this AIRAVE 2.5+ device. If you have such problems I highly recommend this product for your consideration.

Verified Purchase
When this works, it works. It takes forever to really connect to Sprint the setup is easy. (I wish it was wall mount, but it's not.) I did take the case off, and put screws through it into the wall, covered them with electric tape and this unit has not caused a single issue with overheating etc... Just note there are screws on the bottom and back, if you can't open it easily you missed one. (It's not your linksys router, so don't pull too hard you probably missed a screw.) you will also need to cut the bottoms off of the case I recommend using a heated soldering iron with a hot knife tip.)
Also, if you're getting one to provide services for your home for renters, and don't have a sprint account, forget it... Sprint will give you all sorts of !@#$ for thinking you can just have one of their repeaters in your house without a live cell account. (Get your renter to pre-agree with using their account for your setup and prepare to be entangled with this.) Also if you tell them you're hosting for someone not yourself, so they don't charge for the operation of the unit otherwise it's x$ ammount / year for taxes, let your renter know there will be some fees though, but not through you, through sprint directly to their cell bill, fortunately they are not large fees. (Which is not fun, because you're just trying to make sure their customers have coverage in a particular area where there is already coverage, but for some reason, their customer can't get a signal.) Also make sure you're in an approved area, or you'll have to... Don't worry about it, just check this with sprint ahead of time.

10/20/2014 Update:

Upgraded from three to four stars. It now works with my 4G LTE phone automatically. I discovered this when I forgot to make the change one day, and realized it had started working. Apparently Sprint's vendor has figured out how to make it work and has done the necessary code changes. Significantly better signal, and now I generally get the incoming calls. I won't give it five stars due to the amount of effort involved in getting it to work originally, but it does make a big difference in the connectivity and sound quality.

9/19/2014 Update:
Upgraded from one to three stars.

After many hours of level 1 and 2 tech support, this thing does work after a fashion. It will not work with a 4G LTE phone automatically. In order to make it function, each time I am where I'm using the Airave, I need to change the phone network setting to disable roaming and use CDMA only. Otherwise, the device will not connect with my phone. When I go back into the outside world, I need to remember to change these settings in order to get back on a 4G LTE network. It's a nuisance at best. I was initially advised that a software fix was coming, but based on my last contact with Sprint there is apparently no date given and no status updates available. The rep assumed that it was likely a project with no priority.

That being said, when these changes are made it does make for a marked increase in call quality, and I'm not missing all of my inbound calls anymore.

Original review:

I have bad Sprint coverage where I live. In cases like mine Sprint will give you one of these.

I installed mine without a hitch and it worked the first day. The next day it wouldn't connect with my Samsung Galaxy S4.
