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!

poor signal

From Karen DeYoung on September 20, 2011 :: 1:30 pm

We have poor signal reception where we live. I use the cell phone mostly in my study. I surely could use a boost. Thanks.

subscriber too

From Mary Wright on September 20, 2011 :: 1:32 pm

Since we have zero bars and can receive no cell calls in the house, this would be a wonderful prize. I’m sure the room we would use this in the most would be the living room .

in the Man Cave

From Glenn Dortch on September 20, 2011 :: 1:36 pm

I use my cell phone in the Man Cave at our house, which is partially undergraound and lined with cinder block walls.  So the reception is not very good in that area.

Please!!! I really NEED this booster!

From Denise on September 20, 2011 :: 1:46 pm

I live in a rural area. I can get a cell phone signal, but it is very spotty. Therefore, I don’t use my cell phone at home. I would love to be able to use my cell phone here, in my livingroom where the signal is best, but not quiet good enough to use my phone. I would be so thankful, just to be able to use it at home, anywhere!

Thanks!

Worst Room

My main family room area has the worst reception.  Not surprising, that is where we need it the most.

I need a boost!

From Eileen Hamilton on September 20, 2011 :: 1:48 pm

We don’t have a land-line and my husband uses his cell phone for work.  ALL rooms need a boost, but most particularly the living room and office.  Winning one of these would be outstanding!

Boost Me, Baby!

From The Baroness on September 20, 2011 :: 2:05 pm

I use my cell phone in my living room the most. Here in hilly Western Oregon the cell signals usually stink no matter how close you are to a signal relay tower, so anything that would help boost my cell phone signal would be most welcome! Thank you!

Z-Boost for my daughter please

From Debbie Parker on September 20, 2011 :: 2:06 pm

I use my cell phone mostly in the backroom (office?) in my house.  I really need this for my daughter who is away at college.  She gets no reception in her dorm room so she has to go to open areas close to a window and has no privacy when she is on the phone.  This would allow her to use her phone in her room.

cell signal booster

From Sarah on September 20, 2011 :: 2:11 pm

When I’m home, I use my cell the most in the kitchen/great room.  But our signal is poor in the basement, and people who visit us who use other carriers can’t get signal at all, so the Zboost might make a big difference.  Thanks for this offer!

More Is More

From Jewelly A. Shetka on September 20, 2011 :: 2:37 pm

We use it mainly in the bedroom.
There’s more room there for our
furry friends(9)than there is
on the dining room table.
Besides that, our Pug and
our Chihuahua can’t get on
the table.  All nine can
make it onto the bed. So can
we, but we always have to do some
furry pet skooching to do it.

From Lou Freeman on September 20, 2011 :: 3:46 pm

I use my cell phone phone mostly outside in the back yard.  That’s where the reception is better but still spotty.  I would love to have decent reception for any room inside the house!

From Sonya Allstun on September 20, 2011 :: 3:56 pm

I use my cell phone the most in the living room since there is only one place in our home we get signal and its in one of the living room windows. So to use our cell phones at home we prop our cell phones up in the one window that gets signal and then have to use bluetooth headsets to talk and leave the phone on the window. So we NEED this. I have been looking at them to buy one but dont want to spend that amount for something I am not sure how well it works and only place I found them is online so it would be a pain to have to return.So crossing my fingers and toes hoping to win.

Thanks for the GREAT giveaway and I also subbed to your emails some time back that is how I found out about the giveaway.
