    Network Extender (SCS-2U01) is rated 3.9674479166666665 out of 5 by 768.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has serious Drawbacks.... This definately has improved indoor signal, but sending Text messsages is difficult. We use 2 Droid 2 Globals and a Blackberry, and all 3 devices have problems sending messages, not sure why, the device shows full signal. I also dont like how it uses YOUR INTERNET, and charges you for minutes, pretty unfair since you are essentially extending thier network for them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! I have to admit after perusing reviews for the better part of a year I was very skeptical. Finally decided we HAD to have reliable cell reception at the house so my girlfriend and I purchased one. Arrived in a couple of days. I had a bit of background on this from my previous research and that coupled with the quick start guide enabled me to hook it up in only 5 minutes or so. I placed it next to a SE facing window for best GPS reception, hardwired to the router, and fired it up. It took ~20 minutes for it to go through its paces until all lights were blue and has worked flawlessly over the month I've had it. Couple of important items if you're considering this. #1 is you have to have at least minimal cell reception. Without the extender we would usually have one bar but calls were broken or wouldn't go through...same went for text and absolutely no data. Now have 4-5 bars in the house and 3 outside. Clear calls, text, and 3G all very functional. #2 you have to have GPS reception. I didn't need the external antenna as I put it directly in the window sill. We'll see as time goes on but all is well for now. If you don't have multiple cell phones you would probably just be better off getting a phone that has Wi-Fi calling capability, like the iPhone 6. You need a good internet connection anyway for this unit to work so you could just skip the extender and use Wi-Fi for your calling needs

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a mixed bag Something to know that I wished someone had posted. The extender boosts 3G signal data only which is not a problem. If you are using WIFI calling the phone will not switch back and forth between the network extender and wifi. If you start a phone call outside of the range of the extender, like getting out of the car and then walking into your apartment the phone will not switch over to the network extender. you have to hang up and call them back to get the signal boost.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Started out as a good piece of equipment and has gradually become a paperweight. I have had mine for a few years now and started out amazing. Now it seems as if I'm having to reset it all the time. I got mine when they first started pushing them. I love the plus side of having it just gets frustrating.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It does not meet performance promises. It was very slow to set up because it had difficulty finding GPS location and signal. After installation with tech person the signal increase was minimal at best. After several contacts with tech people, the performance was better but still not as promised. On the good side, the tech people were very good. It is an OK device but nothing to jump up and down about. This is the opposite of the experience of a friend that recommended the device and who has a poorer un-boosted signal.
