Why you should buy this product
You may remember a TV ad for this Cell Phone Signal Booster Sticker. Unlike many As Seen on TV products, our staff of geeks found that this small, affordable sticker actually does what it’s meant to do — reduce static and enhance cellular reception while making and receiving calls. Each cell signal booster sticker measures just a few centimeters in total and costs just a few dollars, so our Geek’s Review verdict says to give it a go, since you don’t have a lot to lose.
These low-cost cell phone signal boosters are ultra-thin antenna boosters that you stick to the battery of your cell phone to dramatically reduce static and increase reception quality by up to 50 percent. The unique, stick-on antenna booster features a universal design so it’s compatible with most cell phones with removable batteries, including Nokia, Motorola, Ericsson, Audiovox, Samsung, Siemens, Panasonic, LGIC, Nextel, Sprint, Neopoint and Hyundai. It also works with cordless phones, pagers or two-way radios. Please note that the cell antenna sticker is not compatible with any version of the iPhone.
The science behind the booster is really quite simple. The small sticker captures stray radiation within the phone and then re-radiates it to improve performance. This tiny product provides the same level of enhanced cell phone performance as a 4-foot antenna, ensuring that you finish all of your most important conversations no matter where you are in the world. This cell phone signal booster works on analog, digital and tri-band phones and is unbelievably easy to install. Simply peel off the backing and stick it to the back of your phone’s battery for immediate results. We do not issue returns, exchanges or refunds on this product.

Helps in some coverage areas
This is just enough to be able to use on my cell phone at home. Where in coverage is spotty at it's best. Performed just I expected.

As promised, it increased the range & reception of my cell phones! I've used these for years on all my cell phones. Very helpful!

2 months follow-up to my earlier review
I've noticed something worth sharing in the last week. So it's been two months since I purchased this antenna booster sticker and was now noticing a drop in reception quality. My phone's "antenna" display suddenly dropped. Where I was now getting used to getting 2 to 4 bars, it was dropping to anything between 1 and none....Then at the same time, the battery life indicator was crashing real quick. Usually my battery would easily last up to a week with very light usage (I don't use it that much). Now the indicator would lose a bar after 2 days and the battery would die flat within 36 to 48 hours. Never saw that before !
Then I made the connection: the booster effectively draws more battery juice to extend the signal reach. Also noteworthy: the battery was my original, purchased about 3 years ago and I never turn my phone off. Luckily, replacement batteries for my Samsung are also pretty cheap.
So there you go: further evidence that this "Transformer" sticker works !
Nov 27, 2014 10:46:15 AM
Yep, it works !
We own a pair of Samsung Rugby II flip phones (3G) and found that reception was weak both at home (remote area) and at work (concrete block building with few windows). We'd typically get 1 bar at home and often no reception (meaning we weren't even getting calls and weren't able to make calls).
Sure, the instructions are "Made in China", but it doesn't take Einstein to figure them out. Real estate is kinda limited inside the phone's case (I had to remove the ID sticker and place it inside the cover panel), but did manage to fit the antenna right on a metal part.
Works like a charm. Now I get 2 to 3 bars easy - even full 4 bars on Bell Mobility's network.
I've read some critics explaining "why this wouldn't work" and etc... but frankly all I care about is getting better reception. Couldn't care less about the why or why not.
That's what I'm getting and for a few bucks a pop, this is a no brainer !
THANK YOU ACCESSORY GEEKS !!!!

Great Signal Booster!
Super easy to install. now my phone has a better signal now!
Jun 20, 2013 5:36:00 AM
At first I was skeptical, but this product has really improved my signal. About a bar of difference but its a HUGE difference :)
Jan 24, 2013 5:28:52 AM
I thought for it only being $4 that it wasn't going to work, but it actually did! In my house I usually only have one bar, with this signal booster now I have 3 bars. Only thing is the instructions to install the booster, aren't that clear. I read them over and over!
Not that easy to install with the instructions on the package.

Signal Booster Sticker
Seem to have gave me some extra signal here in the backwoods. But have since changed phone.
Gave some extra boost to my signal
Hard to put on right
Sep 15, 2012 2:48:55 PM
Good signal now! AAAAAAA!!!!!!!
Jul 24, 2012 10:21:08 AM
seems to improve my signal in a very remote place that I work

No Difference in reception
Cant really see any difference in cell reception. Still only have one bar.

didn't see any better reception,but we haven't been down to our cabin yet.
no better reception, great service from Geeks
Shipping, ease of installing
no better reception
May 23, 2012 1:16:20 AM
This was a decent buy, one sticker did not do much of a difference. My GF and I have the same phone and there were times were it did not amplify the signal at all. We bought a second sticker and now wherever we go she has 1 more bar than I do. but beware, if there was NO SERVICE where you were dont expect to get service with this.
does amplify signal somewhat
you need to 2 to notice a difference

This isnt the cure-all fix but it does help
I was skeptical but the price was right, bought one, but before I could use it my buddy boosted it from me, he placed it in his phone and immediately started getting a signal at his work area that he has never gotten before, now that area was the back corner of his building but still....also whenever he drove around his buidling to the rear and drove over manhole covers while talking his phone would hang up, well now it doesnt.
I bought several to give to friends. I placed mine in my phone and where before at home all I had ever recieved was usually no bars, to one bar and occasionally two bars, well after placing in my cell I now get consistantly two bars though sometimes it goes to one but it hasnt to my knowledge dropped to no bars yet!
Its not the cure-all miracle fix for bad reception but it definitely helps your phone!
That it wasnt the cure-all fix I was hoping for...i.e. four bars all the time, shrug.

So Worth it!
Never got cell reception with any provider or any phone for 8 years in my downstairs living room and kitchen. With 1 sticker I went from 0 to 1 bar and it would come and go. Added the second sticker and it spiked to 3 bars and stayed at 3. Get This! Nokia E71
Easy to install
Covers up your bar code on the inside of your phone depending on what you have. I have Nokia E71

Cell phone signal booster
So far it does seem to add a little better signal to my phone
Feb 10, 2012 2:07:24 AM
Skeptical, but it did help!
I figured for $4, it was worth a try... not expecting much. However, to my surprise, it did help me obtain an extra bar of service! I checked the signal, and it was a small increase, but it is hard to say with the signal for sure, as it tends to jump around a bit (hence my need for a boost).
In the end, I can say with some confidence that it did help.

Easy to apply. Doubled my bars from 2 to 4 in a basement work location.
Aug 31, 2011 1:05:21 AM
Good for the money
I barely got 1-2 bars in our home before purchasing the signal booster. Now get 2-4 bars regualry. Used to have to find a corner of the house to get a signal strong enough to talk. Now we can pretty much walk around the house without loosiing a signal. Well worth $5.
Does what it says
Directions a little vague but you get the idea.
Jun 25, 2011 4:47:32 PM
I have a blackberry curve and sometimes i randomly drop signal, after putting the booster in I had two more bars! I can't wait to see what it does for me at work tomorrow where its usually a dead zone.
Apr 14, 2011 10:07:42 AM
This item helps a lot on my galaxy s 4g in some places my bars goes down to two or one bars but now it stays at four bars this is a great item a must have .
It keeps my phone at four bars that helps with the speed a lot.

hepled a little with signal
could have done a better job
Mar 28, 2011 12:37:28 AM
antena has inproved my reception about 25%
Mar 21, 2011 6:50:00 AM
I though how could these work.
They do, I installed 5 of them and no more dropped calls yea. Our area for one square mile has no cell towers. Our daughter lives 45 mile away from us 4500 elevation and very little reception
and they have better reception.
Mar 17, 2011 5:40:49 AM
i wasn't too sure where to put it on my droid x....sooo maybe that could have affected how well this thing worked. i don't know. i don't know where the internal antenna is. but i think it still did something for my signal in my dorm room, which is why i got it. even if it's just a tiny boost, it's still something. and i don't think it'll hurt having one of these stickers, anyway.
Mar 14, 2011 8:20:45 PM
Noticed a change in call quality, finally able to use my phone in the basement.
Cheap, actually causes better reception.
No instructions on where to put it specfically with the type of phone you have, instructions are to vague.

cell phone booster sticker
Works as advertised. Easy to install. Improved reception 1 to 2 bars overall.
Easy to install. Very reasonably priced.

CELL PHONE SIGNAL BOOSTER
Feb 9, 2011 5:55:10 AM
Not only is this super cheap but I got it about 3 days! Defiantly worth the 5 bucks!!
Not a thing!
Nov 22, 2010 4:23:47 PM
At first, I didn't believe it. Then I bought one and attached it to my cell phone. Amazing! My cell phone rang louder and I could hear my wife breathing on the phone, in-between her scoldings to me. My cell battery lasts twice as long as it did before since there's no signal (thus, no use of additional energy). It's really shiny!
The sticker sticks!

i just got this cell antenna work great i had one mark now i have three mark and dont lose connection
Jul 18, 2010 9:35:15 PM
Cell Phone Signal Booster is great
It really does work. I purchased this for my son who dosn't get very good reception and he know has a bar which i good enough to not get those annoying disconnects.
Cheap and works
maybe a slightly larger one would get 2 bars
Jul 13, 2010 4:08:02 PM
I live in a semi remote area. It has given me a bit more reception. Not the greatest, but ok
Jul 6, 2010 1:10:04 AM
can't really tell.

Antenna Booster Sticker
It actually works. Its not a dramatic increase but i gained 1 bar out of it.
May 16, 2010 12:57:34 AM
Better reception than old phone.
I cannot tell if this works well or not, because I didn't check the before and after affects on the same phone. The new phone I stuck this on does have better service than my old one in the same place, though.
easy to install
Apr 9, 2010 1:39:40 AM
The signal booster I noticed a increase in signal strength.
Signal strength increase limited to more urban/city areas where signal exists in the first place
Will do little or nothing if you live in a rural area where the signal strength is weak to begin with
Mar 24, 2010 6:15:52 AM
I always use these stickers on my phones. I have old i315's and i355's that I use for business (push to talk feature) and I always put these stickers on all of them. They may not give you some extreme signal boost, but they deffinately give you another bar. I would say it does exactly what it claims it does. And for just being a little sticker, it's pretty impressive by what it does.
Small, no protruding antenna or external equipment.
Easy to apply.
Works on all phones.
Less dropped calls.
Mar 22, 2010 7:33:14 AM
I am very surprised when got my order in 3 days. I was expecting the normal 5 to 7 days. Very good keep the good work.
Sorry But I have not tested the antenna yet. I will write a review as soon as I install the antenna.....
None so far
Feb 26, 2010 2:13:23 PM
I bought this signal booster because I work in an "explosion resistant" building within a chemical plant and my cell has no signal inside the thick concrete walls. The product did not help with the signal inside this building, but I noticed that I now have a good signal in a known dead spot on my drive home. It may be helpful if you have a weak signal in areas outdoors, but don't expect too much improvement if you need a better signal inside a large or fortified building.
simple to install
Jan 25, 2010 9:15:58 PM
It seems to slightly boost the signal
slightly boosts the signal
doesn't boost the signal that much

Cell Phone Signal Booster Sticker
More bars within the Concrete building show up on the phone. Less cell dropage so far.
May 17, 2009 5:00:00 PM
Yes it works
I had ordered the signal booster from you, and the battery from someone else. I have to tell you, the signal booster actually gave me an extra bar, consistently! That is why I was SO disappointed when my new battery arrived, and it all disappeared! I think if I had not had the booster in, I might not have had a signal at all!
Mar 18, 2009 5:00:00 PM
Extra bar wherever I go
OK, I bought this thing because it would be a small loss if it did not work, and great if it did anything. I have a T-Mobile Dash, have had a few years now, and the signal is there, but not the greatest. I put this thing on about a week ago, and it has consistently had an extra bar of signal any time I check it. It is not a miracle product, but effective enough to make me pretty happy!
Oct 8, 2008 5:00:00 PM
My daughter's cell phone would not work in her college apartment room. Also, her phone would continuously be looking for signal, draining her battery within hours. After inserting the booster, her calls then came through, and the battery now lasts for days. I'm buying more of thesefor my family members!

singal Booster sticker
Aug 17, 2007 5:00:00 PM
It works very well. Usually get an extra bar or two and I now have connectivity where I did not in the past.

Antenna Booster Sticker
The Antenna Booster Sticker seemed like it helped boost the signal about 1 bar. For the price, any signal improvement was probably worth it.
Feb 16, 2007 4:00:00 PM
It works decently, but it only made a 1 bar difference on my ppc6700.
