Congratulations to our winner: Serenity from Raymondville, TX!

zBoost METROAre there rooms in your home where you wish you could use your cell phone but you just don't get a good signal? An indoor signal booster, like the zBoost METRO from Wi-Ex, can help.

Designed for use in apartments and small homes, the zBoost METRO can boost signal for an area up to 1500 sq ft inside your home. Simply mount the zBoost METRO's antenna inside a window in your home where you get the best reception (using the included suction cups) and then place the base unit where you want to strengthen the cell signal.

The zBoost METRO works with all U.S. cellular providers - AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon - and enables you to take full advantage of your cell phone's voice, data and Internet services, including 3G data, streaming video, instant messaging, sending pictures, and more.

Benefits include:

  • Supports multiple users simultaneously
  • Decreases dropped or missed calls
  • Easy to set up – comes complete with everything you need
  • No cradle or connections to your phone
  • Extends phone battery life (uses less power when signal is stronger)

The zBoost METRO retails for $299. Enter the zBoost METRO giveaway through September 27th, 2011 for a chance to win one of your own!

More Signal Needed!

From Pat Tish Crawford on September 20, 2011 :: 11:50 am

When I’m home, I mostly use my cell phone standing outside to get a better/stronger signal, which is not convenient when it rains! 

This booster would keep me out of the rain!

I would like a stronger

From Nancy on September 20, 2011 :: 11:51 am

I would like a stronger cell phone signal in all the rooms in my house. We live in a remote area where cell phone signal isn’t always that great. Some day’s we have signal on the west side of the house and some day’s on the east side, never a consistent signal. A cell phone signal booster would be a huge bonus in our house!

Death Valley

From Kondratowitch on September 20, 2011 :: 11:55 am

I live in an area surrounded by many major communication antennas - we often can’t get some radio and TV stations.

This would be so great to have so I can know I will hear and be heard on my phone.

Death Valley is what old CBers called this area.

What room?

From Tom on September 20, 2011 :: 12:01 pm

Most of the rooms in our old (sheet-metal roof and walls) trailer (yes, we are trailer trash) have barely-there to dead-zone coverage, but my “playroom” is where I usually am when calls come in. The only window faces away from the nearest cell site, and I only get coverage when the stars align and the solar wind is right. Life in rural Tennessee!

From Richard Nedrow on September 20, 2011 :: 1:01 pm

We use our phone in the home office the most and have the worst signal there too. Since we cannot move the office to another part of the house, we definitely could use a cell phone booster! Thanks for the giveaway! =D
