    Hey,

    So I just got my new Bionic and I love it but since I have moved to my new apartment I don’t get any signal. I know it’s not my phone because the same issues happened with my OG droid. However when I lean out the window I get a strong 4G connection. I have done some research and I now know I need a repeater but I was wondering if anyone knows more about them. I don’t know if it makes a difference if the signal I am trying to repeat is LTE or not but I really want 4g in my room. I have an apartment and I share it with a lot of people but I only need one it to cover my bedroom. I’m trying to get a cheap router so I don’t want to spend anything over $200. Also can anyone connect to it, or do you need an access code. I would prefer one that has a code so that I can try to make some of my money back by selling a code to my neighbors.
    Would this repeater in the link below support Verizon LTE?

    This one specifically mentions 4G LTE: Product Details.

    And from the Wilson Electronics Blog:
    only down side I can see is the $359 MSRP :blink:

    Voice calls are not really 4G- only data is. I have a Wilson booster in my P/U truck. It picks up the signal from a passive phone antenna in a cradle, and boosts it to 3 watts. Works great. Wilson's boosters are 3G-but for voice who cares? VZW also sells a network extender- I have one in my office. Converts cellphone signals to VOIP. The only trouble I have with it is if I am on a call and walk out of range it won't hand off the signal to a cell tower, and I drop the call.

    4G data

    I realize I dont need 4G for calls but I want it for the data. I want to beable to stream netflix on my TV from my phone and I am also really considering buying a labdock because my comp recently died and internet anywhere on 4G is sounds good to me. Only problem is i need to get it from outside my window into my room.

    Step 1. Plug HDMI cable into your phone and TV. Step 2. Securely fasten phone to long stick. Step 3. Open window and stick out your phone. Step 4. Enjoy your free 4G Lte repeater :)
