Any of the honest booster companies will tell you that you have to have a signal to boost. If you have nothing or a very very weak signal then a booster will either not help or not help very much. I have a weboost directional antennae at home. I got the directional because it is supposed to be more powerful. We have a weak 1x service outside and inside since the booster was added we gained 1 maybe 2 bars. Overall I don't think it was worth the $800 I paid for it.

You can get much cheaper ones. The one I got was supposed to be more powerful. I don't feel that I got my money's worth!

That is right. It won’t create a signal where none exists.
