    Has anyone tried those signal booster thingies? Do they actually work?

    I know from experience, they definately DO NOT WORK! Please don't waste your time and money on trying to purchase this clear sticker that does nothing to your phone.

    They are a complete waste of money. Many sellers on Ebay have sent me this crap for free. Some idiot at a mall kiosk put one on my wifes phone. He partially obtructed the battery contacts (causing charging problems) , which I quickly determined was that stupid sticker.

    The FTC ordered all those bogus ads off of TV and radio about 2 years ago. Do a google search on it for more details!!

    No they wont work.

    Cellphone manufacturers spend lots and lots of time designing their patch antennas for every phone. If you go and put anything metallic around your cellphone you are going to change the radiation diagram of your phone and the final result will be not optimal.

    Or what is the same, if you use the cell booster crap, not only you won't get increased reception, your cell will radiate more energy, battery will last less, and your body will receive more radiation. not good.

    If something that is manufactured so cheap could actually make a difference, don't you think cell phone manufacturers would already include them in your phone?

    They are a scam. Don't even use the ones you get for free.
