The weBoost 470106 Drive 3G-S Cradle Signal Booster Kit is the next generation of the Wilson 460106 Sleek Dual-Band Cradle Signal Booster. The Drive 3G-S boosts the 2G & 3G networks from all major carriers in the United States and Canada, giving you fewer dropped calls, increased call clarity and reliable 3G downloads.
The weBoost Drive 3G-S uses the following setup for optimal operation. A small, 4-inch magnetic antenna with a 10 ft cable is mounted to the roof of your vehicle, and the cable is run into the car through a door opening and connected to the Drive 3G-S Cradle. The antenna on the roof receives the existing cell signals in the area and sends them via the cable to the cradle's built in amplifier. The amplifier then boosts the 2G & 3G networks that it received and passes them directly to the phone or data device sitting in the cradle. The entire process also works in reverse giving you strong 2-way communication between your phone and the tower.
Unlike most boosters, the Drive 3G-S does not create a wireless coverage area where you can freely use your phone. Instead, your phone must stay sitting in the Drive 3G-S cradle at all times to receive the boosted signal. There are no direct connections between your phone and the cradle, just sitting in it is enough for the phone to take advantage of the boosted signal.
The weBoost 470106 Drive 3G-S will boost the 2G & 3G networks from virtually all carriers in the United States and Canada. For other locations, please consult the frequencies listed below to see if this product will work for you. This kit will not boost the 4G LTE networks from any carrier.
Here is a more detailed breakdown of the carriers, networks and frequencies boosted by this kit:
- AT&T 2G, 3G & 4G HSPA+
- Verizon 2G & 3G
- Sprint 2G& 3G
- T-Mobile 2G & 3G
- US Cellular 2G & 3G
- All other carriers using 800 MHz & 1900 MHz
Please Note: This signal booster kit will not work in most European, Asian, and African countries because the frequencies used there are different than those boosted by this equipment.
