HTC Signal Booster Guide

Optimize your Droid, Desire, THUNDERBOLT or other HTC device with a signal booster by weBoost / Wilson Electronics.

HTC (High Tech Computer Corporation) phones such as the Droid boast of fast performance and a high quality signal. However, some of the users of the HTC cell phones have found that the signal strength is less than ideal. This is not necessarily a manufacturing problem as it could be a number of factors. To increase the strength of your phone, first troubleshoot your device to see if the phone's performance is to blame and then check common issues which may cause HTC cell phones to have a weak signal. The following booster kits will also boost coverage for cell phones by other manufacturers and cell service providers. That means that your friends, co-workers or family members who have cell phone made by another manufacturer and cellular service with any other wireless carrier in USA or Canada, can also benefit from the boosted signal when they visit your home or travel with you in your vehicle.

The Signal Booster Guide for HTCs shown below is your comprehensive source for accurate information. We tour you through the most competitive, reliable, and feature-rich HTC signal boosters on the market. Read about boosters designed for a single room or boost signal for an entire building. Similarly, this HTC signal booster guide discusses the fine points of leading booster technology designed specifically for use in cars, trucks, and boats. Get the power, functionality, and price you want by referring to the table below. See the cell phone booster selector below the table which guides you through easy questions to choose the right unit for your needs.

HTC Signal Boosters for Homes
BOOSTER MODELDESCRIPTIONMSRPDB GAIN? What is dB Gain?
Signal strength is measured in decibels (dB). Theoretically, -50 dB represents peak signal strength (5 signal bars), whereas -110 dB implies practically zero signal on your HTC.

Therefore, this means that signal strength reduces, as this number goes further away from zero (a higher negative number is further away from zero than a lower negative number).

The number shown in this column indicates amount of potential improvement of your HTC signal strength. As you can see, all of them provide a drastic improvement in HTC reception signal strength.

Troubleshooting your HTC phone.

To see if your cell phone is to blame, first turn off the device and give it some time to cool down. Restart your phone and then check for .net or framework updates. If updates are available, install them and restart your phone. Check to see if this has fixed the issue. If the issue is not fixed, power off your phone, remove the battery for at least 2 minutes, replace the battery and power up. If you see an improvement, then there may be an issue with your phone causing the weak signal. If no improvement is seen, then the network/tower could be to blame.

Common issues that can cause a weak signal

If you have determined that your HTC phone is not the issue, then the next step is to determine if the weak signal is a result of obstructions or if the network/tower is causing a weak signal. To troubleshoot your signal’s strength, check the following:

• Check the signal strength in exterior of your building. In many cases, the structure of the building may hinder the overall signal strength. This may be due to concrete, steel, existing electronic wires, and cross-frequencies. Should you find that the signal increases on the exterior of your building, then an HTC cell phone signal booster may be the best option for you.

• Remove obstacles from any existing booster and router if possible. Frequencies work best when they are not obscured. If there is a great deal of clutter between your HTC phone and the router/antenna then the signal may become weakened.

• Check to see if the signal is strong at other locations. It could be that manmade and natural obstructions are hindering the signal from getting through. Check your signal’s strength at various locations to see if this is the issue.

• If your signal is weakened in your vehicle, then you should note that this is the nature of the modern car. Where the new technologies available reduce noise and increase comfort, they can unfortunately cause weakened signals in your vehicle. A mobile cell phone signal booster may be required to get the best results.

I have determined that I have a signal issue on my HTC phone, how can a signal booster help?

A cell phone booster for your Driod DNA, Thunderbolt, Windows Phone 8x or other HTC device can increase the overall functionality of the phone. This is done by optimizing the signal. How is this done? Optimization of the cell phone signal is obtained by the booster scanning the area for any signal. There are often small signals which cannot be picked up by the phone which a booster will recognize. Once the signals are recognized, the booster will then look for a strong signal to boost. This signal will then be reconstructed or optimized to create a stronger signal for your phone. When the signal is created, it is sent to the antenna and that signal is related back to your phone. The result is that you will see:

• Eliminated or minimized dropped calls.

• Increased bars, sometimes up to twice the amount prior to using the HTC Cell Phone Booster.

• Quicker downloads on signal based internet access.

• Up to 2 additional hours of optimized battery life to use.

• Less time connecting your data and more time using your data properly.

Why should I get a weBoost/ Wilson cell phone booster for HTC over a different brand?

Cell phone signal boosters must meet specific requirements set forth by the FCC and your network provider. In most cases a generic model will not meet these specifications. As all cell phone boosters must be registered with the network that you subscribe to, phones which do not meet these specifications will not be allowed to be used legally. Using the cell phone booster which is not to the FCC or the network’s specifications may cause physical damage to your phones infrastructure (the motherboard, circuits, .net, or the stored data) as well as the tower/network including emergency response services such as 911. Also, by having an HTC cell phone booster you are ensured that the booster will be compatible with your phone.

The four parts of a cell phone signal booster

Where the HTC cell phone booster is specifically designed for DROID DNA, DROID INCREDIBLE, HTC Desire, HTC One, and such devices, it does contain the same elements at its core as all cell phone signal boosters. The difference is that these components have been specifically designed for your HTC device. These components are:

Antenna – This is the component that will relate the signal back to your phone once the booster has optimized the signal. It is advised that you place your antenna in a location that is not hindered by obstructions. Antennas should be placed with no more than 6 feet distance between it and the booster.

The Booster – This is the physical component that optimizes the signals in the air to give you the strongest signal possible. In some cases, the Antenna and the booster will be included in one physical component. However, this is not common. The booster’s size will depend upon your cell phone signal boosting requirements. For example, a desktop cell phone booster is ideal for boosting the signal on a single HTC Resound or for a small office. However, if the space exceeds 50,000 sq. ft. a professional grade booster would need to be installed by a licensed professional.

The Power Source – Typically the power source can be connected to a standard outlet. It is encouraged that you dedicate an outlet only to the HTC cell phone signal booster and that the power supply be connected to a surge protector.

The Coax Cable – The coax cable greatly determines the signal strength. Ensure that you have a coax cable made of quality fibers and connectors. Also, keep in mind that the longer the coax cable the more apt the booster is to see interference and weakened signals from the coax cable.

How to determine the HTC cell phone signal booster that is right for you?

To determine which HTC cell phone booster is ideal for your circumstance, question which situation will be more prone to your daily needs:

Will you need to have the signal mobile (such as in a commuter vehicle, commercial truck, RV, or Boat)? If you require a mobile booster than you may want to consider getting a mobile mounted cell phone booster. These devices are generally offered in either bolt mount or in magnetic mounted options.

What is the square footage of the area which will need to have the HTC cell phone booster? If the space is less than 50,000 sq. ft. then a personal HTC cell phone signal booster may be able to be used. Spaces such as small offices and personal homes can use a desktop booster in most cases.

Will other people be accessing the cell phone booster? Where most cell phone boosters do provide the functionality of boosting a cell phone signal to multiple users, keep in mind that the more people that access the booster the more prone you are to have a weakened signal and lags. Opt for more power if you have more people.

Is this device to be used for personal or professional services? If the HTC Cell phone booster is to be professional, then a mounted unit may be the best option. Person cell phone signal boosters would benefit from the desktop booster which can be moved from the office to the home with ease.

Considerations

Cell phone boosters such as those which are available for the HTC DROID allow the cell phone to have eliminated or minimized dropped calls, increased communications, quicker downloads, and an optimized battery life. However, there are some things which a cell phone signal booster cannot do. They cannot create a signal where one does not exist. They cannot "hack" a network. You will have to have access and permissions to a wireless network and their towers. Cell phone boosters cannot create hotspots and WI-FI connection. Internet can be increased through the signal strength, but you may need to consider a Wi-FI booster if you want to increase that functionality on your phone. Finally, a cellphone booster does not replace or extend your minutes and data on your phone. Where the booster does allow you to spend this time with less frustrations such as dropped calls and static on the line, you will still need to keep up with your plan to avoid extra charges.
