If you experience dropped calls and poor cell phone signal quality in your car, home or office then the Wilson MobilePro Cell Phone Signal Booster kit is the solution. Increasing your cell phone's power by as much as 10 times, the Wilson MobilePro significantly improves the performance of your cellular and data devices by increasing the power output of your cell phone signal where you are experiencing a weak signal. Designed for portability and mobility the MobilePro includes several power adapters, and is easily moved from your vehicle to home, hotel, airport, and office creating an improved cellular signal.
Wilson Electronics 801242 MobilePro Cell Phone Signal Booster Kit
It's All About Power
The primary cause of dropped calls is low signal output power from the cell phone to the cell tower, which limits the phone's ability to communicate with the tower. A typical cell phone provides merely one-fifth of a watt of output power. To address this problem, the amplifier and the included magnet mount antenna work together to increase the phone's output power by as much as 10 times over using just the phone alone.
Enjoy Premium Reception and Fewer Dropped Calls
Living or working in an area with limited cell phone coverage, which is caused by natural and man-made obstructions or by living out of range from a cell phone tower, you know how frustrating weak reception can be. By increasing the power output of your cell phone signal, the Wilson MobilePro helps eliminate most of the signal loss caused by these obstructions. It's important to note, the strongest signal is obtained when the MobilePro is within two feet of your cell phone, laptop or data card. If you sit at a distance greater than two feet, simply set your phone next to the MobilePro booster and use a Bluetooth headset.
The MobilePro comes with several power options, including a vehicle cigarette lighter adapter, a USB power cable, and a standard five-volt AC/DC adapter. The variety of power options ensures that you'll continue to have a boosted signal whether you're driving in your car, traveling with your laptop, or working at your desk. Included with the booster kit is a convenient carrying case that fits neatly inside a briefcase, handbag or suitcase.
Once installed, the MobilePro can simultaneously support multiple cell phones and data cards. You'll experience fewer dropped calls, clearer call quality, and improved data rates--even with 3G technologies.
Installing the MobilePro
Installation is quick and easy; everything you need for installation in a building or car is included in the kit.
In a Building
To install, simply attach the suction-cup window bracket to the inside of the window and place the magnet mount antenna on the bracket. Connect the magnet mount antenna to the amplifier. Power the amplifier by using the USB power cord and plugging it into a computer USB port or the standard AC adapter. Place the MobilePro within 12 inches of your phone, laptop, or data card to receive an improved signal.
In a Car
To install, simply attach the magnet mount antenna to the roof of your vehicle. Connect the cable of the magnet mount antenna to the amplifier. Mount the amplifier to the dash or other area using the supplied mounting hardware. Power the amplifier using the cigarette lighter adapter, or by plugging the USB cord into your laptop computer. Now you're ready to enjoy a stronger cell phone signal typically within two feet from the amplifier.

If used properly, this signal booster should significantly decrease all frustration you once had with dropped calls and low signal problems. Since installing this in my car, I have dropped roughly 90% fewer calls. My bars went from 1 to 4 instantly as it was plugged in. My call quality improved dramatically too - once where there was static is now a clear conversation.
The antenna itself is a little unsightly, especially when used in a car. You need to put the antenna on your roof, and have the cable running through an open window. I was able to shut my window just about all the way with it, so it shouldn't be much of a problem in winter. Unsightly - yes. Does it work - YES.
I used it this winter, and though my car never got really cold inside, there was a constant whistling from the window being cracked open that drove me crazy. So keep that in mind.
I've also tried this antenna in various hotels that did not offer wifi. I have a Verizon card I plug in to my laptop to get 3g, but in some areas I travel, I was lucky to get 1X speeds. I just hooked up the signal booster and put the receiver within a couple of feet of my laptop, and wham - instant 3g coverage with pretty consistent coverage And the nice this is that it amplifies every signal within 2 feet. So if I'm using it for my laptop and also need to take a call, I get great reception on my phone as well.Read more ›
I believe it work great for a car. If you are buying it for your car...go for it.
If you are buying it for your house, look elsewhere. There are products out there that provide larger bubbles of coverage and are therefore better for your house.
First, the user has to understand a little about antenna paterns, orientation, feedback, etc. The unit will go into oscillation if it picks up its own output signal. Therefore antenna placement is critical.
Second, I bought the unit with a bit too much expectation. Lately I am often in an area where there is literally no cellular signal. With no signal, it obviously will not work because there is nothing to repeat. It does however snap into service with an excellent quality signal output the instant a distant signal is detected. It helps with scratchy or blotchy voice reception and is amazingly clear in those situations.
One thing I have noticed is that there are few places where I go that the device is really needed. Generally cellular signals are either satisfactory or non-existant. In either case, this device, even though it works well, is of limited value to me. I do plan to keep the device with me or nearby in case of weak signals in buildings or in rare cases of marginal coverage in my vehicle. I have bought both the mini-mag antenna and the 10db mag antenna. I cannot tell a difference in the two antennas. One person complained of wind noise from the 10db antenna. I have not heard that noise.
The device works well in a hotel room or other inside-building applications where signal is weak. Again, it works well only if you understand antenna patterns and and antenna placement. It works great as a booster for my air card in my PC also.
Upon receiving the Wilson Electronics signal booster, I opened the package and looked at the various pieces. Opening the installation guide, I attempted to quickly connect the signal booster in an attempt to test its capabilities. Unfortunately the installation guide doesn't provide organized instructions for a quick install. Installing isn't difficult, besides needing to know the antennae must be connected prior to the power, the rest is simple and intuitive. I'm baffled as to why the install instructions are so kludgy and doesn't reflect this.
Once I reviewed the install guide and took note of the warnings, I set up the signal for use indoors. I set up the antennae first, stretched the cord a little over 8 foot away (recommended for indoor use), and placed the booster next to my wirelessly connected laptop. There was a slight delay, but the signal gauge improved and decreased with each plug in and disconnect respectively.
The Wilson Electronics 801242 MobilePro cell phone signal booster has a steep price, limiting those who would be willing to purchase this solution. For me, it's a matter of productivity; I could easily justify the expense. If you can justify the expense, and the install configuration isn't a problem for you, this signal booster is worthy of your consideration.
