This Airave 2.5+ Signal Booster was a birthday gift to me from my daughter and son-in-law. 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.

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.

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!

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.

Sprint provides these free of charge to existing customers that are having coverage problems. Their tech support will walk you through set up and any issues they have with your particular phone. They do work with iPhones etc.

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.

Verified Purchase
I was never able to get this to work with my DSL internet service. It is a fantastic idea to transform your home to a min-cell tower. I did return it and got a full refund.
