Wilson mobile wireless amplifier with cradle?
Anyone using one of these with a BB on ATT? I ordered the one with the cradle, and not the interior antenna, since I use a ear bud (bluetooth) while driving. Plus, this way the Wife can use it with her Curve when we travel. That's the plan anyway...
I travel cross country for work and have found more than one time I was regretting not having kept my Motorola flip-phone (with an external Wilson antenna).
Decided to take the plunged...hopefully for the $$$, it works as well as advertised???
CNET Gave it a fairly decent review, the only thing is, that for that kind of money, maybe something that works with EDGE would have been available?
Did you get the dual band model with CDMA and GSM ? or hopefully you got this one
Then your covered
It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.
The one I ordered works with EDGE...and I believe it was the one you linked to...that number sounds familiar anyway.
This is the one I ordered (cheapest):
Which states its the 801213, which is dual band and supports EDGE...its "for" the G1, but its a universal amplifier.
Well, I've had this amplifier for about a week now...finally installed it two days ago. I already had a through-roof mounted Wilson "NMO Trucker" cell antenna, so I did not need to use the included magnetic antenna. I also had a dash mount installed (for cell phones, XM receiver, GPS, etc)...however, with the cradle mounted there it caused the amplifier to shut down because of oscillation. So I have it mounted near my hip on the console, and it works fine.
I have only tested it a couple times, it will take a signal strength of two or three units (on the 8700c) to full signal within a few seconds of turning it on. It will also lose that signal if you switch the device off, so you can definitely tell its working.
I'm heading to South Carolina over the next week, so I should be able to see more.
