    I was always under the impression that if you could prove a bad signal at home you could get one for free. Its that not the case?

    Nope they want me to pay 250 for it. I've got em down to 150 but that's still ridiculous.

    I got one 18 months ago for $99 - they were having a special. No freebies, but I can assure you you will not be disappointed. I used to get the dreded 'voice mail message,' without the phone ever ringing. Haven't missed an incoming call since!

    I don't know anyone who got an extender for free from Verizon at least. I also found that they don't work very well unless you're in the same room as one of them, though I only know of one person who uses it, but I am at their house often and always struggle to get a signal.

    we had to pay for ours. but it's worth every penny. the extender is downstairs and we connect from anywhere in the house. only time we ever drop a call (or signal) is when there's a power outage.

    My house is all of 3 rooms so I wouldn't really have a problem with that, I don't think. Ha Ha
