Really, the only way this type of product can be assessed properly is for some people to buy and use it. All of these people will have different opinions depending largely on where they live.
Here's an example: I bought a TV signal booster to try and get a decent Channel 5 reception and it improved the signal enormously. My next door neighbour followed suit and had no improved reception.

But has anyone seen any improvements like getting a signal in a building where they couldn't before. Also, does anyone know about the science behind the product, ie, should it work?

As an ex dealer, I'm still interested in gadgets like these.

I bought a new Motorola K1 (worst phone I ever came across). The reception was so bad I thought I'd try one of these.
I bought 5 of 'em (on a deal) & put one in,,,, but as far as I can tell, it makes no difference at all.
I tried all five, but they were the same.
I tried a similar item as well,,,, all to no avail.

I don't know the science behind them, but suspect that there is none (imo).

Obviously my phone dosn't get used much (it has other faults that motorola won't/can't fix) but I'd also like to learn of something to improve reception.

good luck.

Thanks Furkin, I suspected that that would be the case, I don't really trust things that don't sound like they should work

Much appreciated, I'll steer clear
