You Should Choose This Kit If
You want a portable, compact signal booster that will amplify all of the networks from all of the major carriers, and you're ok with your phone sitting in the cradle to receive boosted signal. The weBoost Drive 4G-S is the newest version of the popular Wilson Sleek 4G signal booster kit, and features a 4 inch magnet mount antenna for the roof of the vehicle, an amplifier built into the cradle, and a DC power adapter for powering the cradle.
Will This Work For Me?
The weBoost Drive 4G-S Cradle signal booster is our entry level vehicle signal booster. Being a cradle, your phone or data device must stay in the cradle at all times to receive boosted signal, so you'll have to use a bluetooth headset or speakerphone to make and receive calls. The Drive 4G-S will only work with one mobile device at a time.
The weBoost Drive 4G-S will improve the signals used for both voice calls and Internet access. In areas with a weak signal, the Drive 4G-S will improve call clarity, reduce dropped calls, and increase Internet data speeds.
The weBoost 470107 Drive 4G-S supports the 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE networks from virtually all carriers in the United States and Canada. Here is a more detailed breakdown of the carriers, networks and frequencies boosted by this kit:
- AT&T 2G/3G/4G HSPA+ (shows as 4G on your phone) & 4G LTE
- Verizon 2G/3G & 4G LTE
- Sprint 2G/3G
- US Cellular 2G/3G & 4G LTE
- Alltel 2G/3G
- T-Mobile 2G & 3G, 4G HSPA+ (shows as 4G on your phone), and 4G LTE
- All other carriers using 800 MHz and 1900 MHz
- weBoost Drive 4G-S 5-Band Cradle Amplifier
- weBoost 859104 DC to DC 5.5V/2A Power Supply
- Dashboard adhesive mount for Cradle
- Wilson 301126 4" Mini Magnetic Mount Antenna with SMA-Male Connector
Installing the Drive 4G-S signal booster is very easy and since the installation is not permanent, it can be moved from one vehicle to another, or brought inside a home or office for use.
To begin the installation, mount the included antenna on the roof of the vehicle. Route the attached coax cable in through a door opening. To protect the cable, run it under the door seal. Connect the cable to the Drive 4G-S Cradle. Then just plug in the included power supply and connect it to the Cradle. When you place your phone in the cradle, you should see a stronger signal (it may take up to 30 seconds for your phone's signal strength display to update). If you already have a strong outside signal, you won't see any benefit from the Drive 4G-S so try it in a place where you typically have signal trouble.
