This device (Samsung SCS-2U01) brought that up to 3-4 bars in nearly every room in the house. In other words, a godsend.
It took a very long time to lock in the GPS (sitting on a chair right up against sliding glass doors to the outside), and until that locked in, the device wouldn't register with VZW. Once the GPS finally locked in (well over an hour), the SYS light continued RED for another 20-30 minutes.
When all four lights went blue, the service started working and has been rock solid ever since (roughly 10 days now).
I called VZW to add the device to the account (they knew exactly what I wanted, asking me for the MAC address of the device). Others have said that this step was unnecessary. They may be correct, I called before all 4 lights turned blue, thinking that not registering with VZW was the issue.
The box came with a long GPS antenna extension cord. While I ended up not needing it, I'm not sure how I could have used it if I had needed it. There is no spot on the unit that I could see where it could plug in (yes, I slid off the GPS cover and still couldn't find an appropriate connector).
I highly recommend this device to anyone with poor VZW cell service in their house.
Update: See comment below on how to use the GPS antenna extension cable, it does indeed work.
I purchased a second unit for another friend. I am now sure that it was required to call VZW to add the MAC address to the account (at least for the two units I bought). We had the unit plugged in for weeks without calling and it never locked in on the GPS signal. When I visited, I called VZW and after they added the MAC address the GPS locked in under 5 minutes. It took another hour for the SYS light to stop blinking and now they have rock solid service.
TOP 10 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THESE NETWORK EXTENDERS
1) What models are available?
Model SCS-26UC4 - This is the first version of the extender introduced in 2009 and is no longer being sold by Verizon, but is available used/refurbished through outlets such as Amazon and eBay. The main difference I am aware of is that this older extender only can only download data at "1x" speeds (much slower than 3G). This model also handles fewer simultaneous calls (3) than the updated model noted next. The SCS-26UC4l was reduced in price to $99 (with rebate) when the upgraded model came out, but now usually sells for more than that used. For a few people however this may be the preferable model to purchase. I will explain below. BTW - when these extenders first appeared on the market, cell calls placed through them were NOT charged any minutes. It was a truly free call. Those days are long gone as Verizon now charges the minutes based on your calling plan for either extender or cell tower calls.
Model SCS-2U01 - This improved model was released around 2010. Mainly it adds 3G data (also known as EVDO or EVolution Data Optimized), so internet speeds are improved. It also handles up to 8 simultaneous calls.Read more ›
Initially Verizon reps told us to replace a perfectly fine old LG VX 3450 flip phone and to exchange it for a brand new LG model. That made absolutely no difference but it did cost us hours of running around to get the old contacts transferred to the new phone -- backup assistant won't work on older phones. We also spent money for all new accessories (extra chargers, computer cords, cases, and so on). All to no avail.
Finally, after many futile calls and worthless suggestions, we got through to a very compulsive (and very kind and expert) Verizon rep who took all kinds of info from us (mostly about our exact location) and then left the line for long periods to check this and that. His conclusion: we needed a network adapter and best of all, Verizon would provide it free. Maybe our remarks about having to change carriers if they could not fix things (after many years of loyalty) helped.
The way it was explained to us, the network adapter uses the internet to provide the phone signal to a short range transmitter which then broadcasts it to the cell phone. For reasons not explained, it must have an accurate location which it gets via GPS.
In short, we installed the adapter and it worked but I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because the instructions, both in the package and the manual on line, are very poor.Read more ›
