i recently rode along with a buddy who had a cell booster in his pickup. I was getting service where I never had before. He unplugged it from the lighter socket to prove it to me and my phone immediately went to "NO SERVICE". He got it off some wireless warehouse site.
Has anyone else been around these?
I want some feedback on different terrain before i go and order mine.

well, i got it this AM, and let me tell you, I wouldnt let alot of people i know try to install it. If you cant install a CB, 2way, or stereo it will take some trial and error.

If the antennas arent right, or the inside receiver is too close to metal, or you place your outside antenna too close to the edge of the roof, or your extra cable is looped together instead of strung out, You will NOT see much improvement (only 1 bar).

but after 45 mins of moving things around I get 3 bars more with the booster plugged in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I drove to my known dropped call areas and talked right through them with 2-3 bars. Seeing is believing and so is Using!
Where did you get this thing and how much did it cost?
you can get a wilson booster for your cell but i think you need a motarola to use it. there is wired and wireless kits on the market. you can get them at a telus store. (at least in AB) they are a simple setup. and up in northern Alberta where you wound get no service you can get out as if you where sitting in town.

here is a link to there site

I got mine out of Illinois, prolly not the best idea for u up north I imagine but here is a link.
The ones I am using are not connected to your phone.
They only have a lighter plug and a magnet antenna.
Seems too simple but they have been working for me.
