    Signal Booster Basics

    What is a Cell Phone Signal Booster?

    A signal booster improves weak 3G and/or 4G cell phone signals and strengthens the incoming and outgoing cellular signals to reduce dropped calls and bad cell reception. Most signal boosters are compatible with every cell phone carrier and are used to boost cell signals in vehicles, RVs, boats, homes, apartments, offices and commercial spaces.

    All of SureCall’s vehicle signal boosters have no monthly fees, support all carriers, work with all cellular devices, do not require special training or tools to install and are a great way to improve cell service for better calling, texting and data speeds. This guide focuses specifically on signal boosters for vehicles, but to learn more about signal boosters for homes and offices visit our Master Guide to Cell Phone Signal Boosters.

    Alternatives for Better Cell Reception in Your Vehicle

    There are a number of remedies and strategies for improving cell signal in a vehicle; everything from antenna cases and stickers to recommendations like stepping outside of the car to find a better signal. Although many of these can have a beneficial effect, many of our customers have found the free tricks to be impractical and the cases and stickers to have no impact on their cell signal. Carrier specific solutions, like femtocells, are available for homes and offices, however, they cannot be used in a car, truck or RV. Generally, two options are the best means of improving your cell signal. The first option is to change cellular carriers to another provider who has better reception in your area. The second option is to purchase a signal booster kit for your vehicle.

    Fusion2Go 3.0 Connects Work & Family

    Frequently working in remote areas with critically weak signals, a Journeyman Lineman, who was responsible with utility pole setting and maintenance, needed a cellular solution that could keep him connected with his family and teams. “Driving off the job site to get a better signal was eating up my time. I just dealt with it for a while but a few months ago I gave it [a signal booster] a try,” explained Jake Taylor.

    Most often working with multi-person crews Taylor wanted a cell booster that could help him and the rest of his multi-person crew make calls, send texts, emails, and transmit data in weak signal areas.

    Fusion2Go 3.0 delivered max cell boosting power to keep Taylor connected twice as far from the cell tower than any other solution on the market. The booster kit also gave Taylor faster data speeds to send and receive data faster using weak signals and supported all of his crew member’s cell carriers and devices.

    Cell Boost for Texas Oil Industry Worker

    With an occupation that changed location from hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and week-to-week, Andy, an oil industry Drill Site Manager in rural Texas needed a cell boosting solution that was as reliable as the location of his work was unreliable. He had a family at home and needed to call, send and receive emails and data from team members and, overall, needed to stay connected in areas that had extremely weak cell signals.

    Typically, his primary housing locations average three bars of signal strength but when driving around to nearby or faraway drill sites, he would often average just a single bar. “I was dropping calls every day and I couldn’t get my jobs done without giving or getting info… my wife was getting ticked-off and I was too,” he explained.

    Andy purchased his Fusion2Go 3.0 from Amazon.com and a few months after purchasing we reached out for his feedback. He explained that installation was “really easy,” that the booster has kept him connected in the majority of his problem areas, and that he is now more productive at his job.

    FAQ

    Common FAQ's

    What can I expect from a cell phone signal booster for vehicle?
    Most signal amplifier options for a car, truck, van or RV are small and easy to install. The ideal booster for a single driver in a sedan will not be the same as the perfect choice for the family of four road-tripping in their RV. Click here to find out which booster is best for you.
    Will a cellular signal amplifier work with my phone?
    Yes, if you have cell service with a carrier located in the United States, Canada, Mexico and some Central and South American countries a SureCall signal booster will work with your cell phone or mobile device. That includes all Apple, Samsung, LG, Google, Huawei and all other cell phones and cellular powered devices, like iWatch, iPad and more.
    Will a cellular signal amplifier work with my carrier?
    Yes, all of SureCall’s signal boosters for vehicle work with any carrier in North America. N-Range, FusionTrek, Fusion2Go 3.0, Fusion2Go 3.0 RV, and Fusion2Go 2.0 all improve cell reception for Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Telus, Bell, Rogers, BoostMobile, Sasktel, and every other North American cellular provider. Buy one booster and get coverage for every North American carrier!
    Does weak cell signal drain my battery?
    Yes, when your phone has to work harder it expends more energy and this drains your battery. A phone that has a weak signal will automatically search for a stronger signal from nearby towers. On the other hand, if your phone is content with the strong cell signal it has it will not look for other towers and this extends the life of your cell phone battery.
    What if I don’t want an outside antenna?
    Although an outside antenna is useful for finding signals in remote areas, the latest generation of cellular signal boosters for cars, trucks, vans and RVs are able to find and amplify signals using only internal components. The SureCall FusionTrek is the first and only vehicle signal booster with no outside antenna, cables, or any outside components at all. You still get a big cell signal boost with FusionTrek’s small, easy to install and portable kit.
    How to get cellular service in a dead zone for my car, truck, or RV?
    A signal booster will not work in a complete cellular dead zone. A cell phone signal booster for car, truck and RV can help amplify an existing signal, however, this does require a signal to be present, however weak it may be. Where signal boosters are a low cost solution to improving cell signal, there are a few free tricks you can try next time you’re in a dead zone. Try charging the battery, removing ruggedized cases, rebooting the phone to help find a stronger cell tower, or find a way to remove obstructions between you and the nearest cell tower.
    What causes a dead zone?
    Cellular dead zones and weak cell service are caused by one of two things: either the signal is obstructed or the device is not within the cellular tower’s range or window of reception. Things like mountains, trees, buildings, dense weather systems, and more can block a cell signal.
    When do signal boosters for cars, trucks, and RVs not work?
    Cell phone signal boosters, regardless of manufacturer, will not work in cellular dead zones. The keyword in signal booster is “boost.” In order to boost a cellular signal there needs to be a signal present outside or very near to the vehicle. Using the signal that exists outside of the vehicle, the signal booster will amplify the signal’s strength and bring it to devices inside of the vehicle.
    How do I install a cell phone signal booster in my car, truck, or RV?
    Installing a SureCall cell phone signal booster does not require special tools or training and can generally be completed very quickly. While installation time will vary from product-to-product and person-to-person, the average installation time for FusionTrek takes just 2-3 minutes, N-Range requires under 4-5 minutes, Fusion2Go 3.0 requires less than 5-10 minutes and Fusion2Go 3.0 RV installation takes about 30 minutes. Each SureCall product comes with everything you’ll need for installation, clear instructions and the SureCall YouTube channel also has a number of videos offering tips, tricks and advice for installation.
    How much antenna separation do I need for a vehicle booster?
    Separating your receiving and distributing antennas is important to get the most performance from your signal booster. For some boosters, like FusionTrek and N-Range, very little separation is needed and you will want to keep more than two feet of distance between the booster/antenna and indoor antenna. Booster kits, like Fusion2Go 3.0 and Fusion2Go 2.0 will require slightly more antenna separation of about four to five feet. Fusion2Go 3.0 RV will require antenna separation closer to about twenty feet. Generally speaking, the more antenna-to-antenna separation, the better.
    How many users will a cell phone signal booster support?
    Depending on the cell signal booster you use, the booster will either support one or many devices. Where FusionTrek and N-Range will support one device the Fusion2Go 2.0, Fusion2Go 3.0 and Fusion2Go 3.0 RV boosters have the ability to support up to five simultaneous devices. For multi-user boosters the devices closest to the indoor antenna will receive the biggest boost.
    How much area will a cellular signal booster cover?
    The coverage area delivered by your signal booster is dependent on a few things; single or multi-user kit, the strength of the incoming signal, and the level of performance delivered by the booster in the kit. Single user signal booster kits will only provide reliable cellular coverage to the cell phone or cellular device on the cradle antenna mount. Multi-user kits like Fusion2Go 3.0 with a strong amplified broadcast signal will be able to cover the entire inside of a car, SUV, van or truck. Multi-user RV kits with a strong broadcast signal can provide coverage for the entire internal structure of a small or medium size RV, trailer, motorhome, or camper.
    Can I use a home cellular signal booster for my RV?
    No, you are unable to use a cell booster for home in your RV or any other vehicle for a few reasons. To name a few, boosters for home and office are not approved for mobile applications by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). If you live in a mobile home that is permanently stationary, you can petition to use a mobile booster, however, if your vehicle is mobile in any way you cannot use a home signal booster in your vehicle. Additionally, the antenna separation required for the more powerful home and office boosters, like Flare and Fusion4Home, is often more than a medium or large RV can support.
    What comes in a cell phone signal booster kit for vehicles?
    Every cell phone signal booster kit is comprised of the same basic elements; the outside antenna, inside antenna, cell signal booster, power adapter, and cables to connect each component. Some SureCall signal boosters are leading the way in making the booster kit footprint smaller and even easier to install. Select the vehicle booster below to see exactly what comes in the package.
