Because of what I do for a living I find myself sometimes in the middle of no where needing to make phone calls but have no connection to a cell tower. Anyone have any experience using an amplifier designed for a car that boosts rf to 3 watts with no hard wire connection to the phone? There are a few on the market but could not find any reviews.

I used to use them for years. But, now it is probably a lot harder, phones tend not to have the external antenna connection any more. Mine were the type where you put the phone in a cradle and used a speakerphone. They worked great in remote areas.

i've never personally used on, although I am considering it.

on this show they tested the Wilson brand and it took a cell phone from 1 bar to full signal with a 3watt antenna.

kevin rose, cellphone, iphone — Kevin Rose is Here, Boost your Cellphone Signal, Custom Stencils, HDMI Switching — Tekzilla — Revision3 and if you want to watch just the antenna part, skip to about 32 minutes into the show
That one had to be placed in a cradle, thus hard wired. Thanx though.
