Cell phone signal booster

We are spending the season at a campground where you can't get a cell signal. We can get a text but the wifi can't support internet calling. Has anyone used a cellular signal booster?

Weboost has several in their line... I have had good service out of a home unit and they make them for RV's also... there is currently another thread on here about a Weboost install...

You really need a small signal.. say a 1/2 bar, in order for any cell booster to work for ya...

We use WeBoost RV X. Works very well however, remember it boosts a signal, but you need a signal to boost. Unless you have a marginal ( some) cell service, the amp will not work.

TechnoRV

I use Weboost also and bought it from folks at TechnoRV. They really have great support and as good a price as Amazon. Great pre purchase support as well to help you get right purchase

I ordered a weboost drive sleek right from weboost. The new drive sleek works with most cell providers. Phone goes into cradle, antenna goes on roof by magnet mount. We use one of our phones for a hotspot. $199 and should be here Friday according to UPS tracking.

Yes I got a Weboost! From Wilson Electronics, they make several kinds. I modified the home booster to my RV ladder. Eventually I will get the proper outside antenna but with the directional antenna it is working fantastic
