Motorola Signal Booster Guide

Increase the efficiency of your Motorola phone with a cell phone signal booster.

Motorola is known for the Droid, Moto, Barrage, and Citrus phones. And while the company has shown tremendous advancements over the years in their communication devices, there are occasions where a cell phone user will still find a weak signal. In such situations where a frequent loss of a signal (dropped calls) or a weakened signal, a Motorola cell phone signal booster may be the solution. 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 Motorolas shown below is your comprehensive source for accurate information. We tour you through the most competitive, reliable, and feature-rich Motorola signal boosters on the market. Read about boosters designed for a single room or boost signal for an entire building.

Motorola 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 Motorola.

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 Motorola signal strength. As you can see, all of them provide a drastic improvement in Motorola reception signal strength.

Typical problems that hinder signal strength

Typically, a cell phone's signal is based upon the tower and the network service that you choose. However, there are some instances where the phone will need to be checked for defects. Common issues may include:

• Improperly installed applications.

• Updates to the .net or framework of the phone.

• Automatic network connections or connections to a network which is out of range.

• To many startup applications/ programs.

After you have followed the steps suggested by Motorola’s site, it is advised that you check to see if the signal’s weakened or dropped state is a result of not having an available signal or if it is the result of a hindrance to the network/signal. To check to see if a signal is being hindered try the following:

Check the exterior of your building to see if you can obtain a signal. A frequent problem with cell phone users is that the building in which they are attempting to access their network from is problematic. Such construction issues as concrete, steel, existing electronics, and wood selections can cause a weakened or a dropped signal. To find out if the building is causing the problem with your signal, go to the exterior of the building and attempt to find a strong point of reception. If one can be found than you know that the building is hindering the signal. Go to the relative same position on interior of the building and see if you get a signal (albeit a small signal). If such is the case, then a cell phone booster may help your phone get a stronger signal.

Check to see if there're any man-made or natural obstructions which could weaken your signal. In urban settings, other buildings and man-made structures can cause you to lose a signal. Rural areas may contain forest, mountains, or other organic features which hinder the signal. Attempt to find an access point away from these structures. Should one be found, then you will need to take note of this location. Your antenna/ Motorola booster will work best when mounted from this location.

Check the interior space for existing boosters, antennas, and other frequency based electronics. Signals are waves which travel through airways. If there're other boosters and antenna in the house, building, or interior space, it could be that your dropped calls are a result of electronic devices already present crossing paths with your cellphone’s attempt to access the signal. This can cancel out or weaken the signal. If possible, temporarily disable the devices in the room which may be causing interference, restart your phone and see if there is a difference in the signal strength. If so, re-position your antenna and electronic devices so that they do not interfere with your Motorola Droid, Motorola Moto, Barrage, CITRUS, or similar smart phones.

Check your proximity to your tower/ network. Even though you may be in an urban environment, there is no guarantee that you're in the proximity of your network. And where the network may show you to be within the boundaries, the truth of the matter is that towers and networks work off of a radius which is transmitted from the tower. This means that if you get outside of the radius, you will have a weakened or a dropped call. Even if you are within the radius, if you are at the edges or farther out from the tower, you may get a dropped or weakened signal. In such cases the Motorola cell phone signal booster would help to maximize the signal strength.

How can a Motorola cell phone signal booster help you?

The cell phone signal booster works by scanning the area for signals which, in most cases, would be considered insignificant. These signals are then "attached" to one another as well as to the strongest signal to make a "refurbished" yet stronger signal which can be used. The booster is not creating a signal, but is utilizing the signals which are already present to the best possible outcome. In this way, your Motorola Droid Pro, DROID Mini, or the New Moto X (of other compatible Motorola phones) can get the strongest reception. The result is that you:

• Eliminate dropped calls.

• Increase the voice communication capabilities by removing static and other hindrances caused by weakened signal strength.

• Maximize the bars on your phone, sometimes to double what you had prior to utilizing the cell phone signal booster.

• Increase your download speeds on signal based internet.

• Optimize the battery functionality to allow for up to 2 hours of additional usage time in some cases.

The components of the cell phone signal booster for Motorola phones

Motorola cellular signal boosters all have four basic components in common. Granted, these components may vary from brand and model, but the fundamental elements must be present in order for the device to work properly. These elements include:

• Amplifier unit - This is essentially the "brains" of the device with built-in software to regulate amplification, etc. It contains the hardware and physical components needed to find the weak signals, harness the strongest signal, and send a strong signal to the antenna. In some cases, an amplifier and an antenna will be housed within the same physical unit, but this is not common practice. In most cases the booster and the antenna will be separate. When setting up the system ensure that your booster is no more than six feet from the antenna for the best results.

• Antennas – These can be professionally mounted (for areas such as stadiums, arenas, and other spaces exceeding 25,000 sq. feet) for personal use which is the most common and used for houses, small businesses, and offices, or mobile (such as for the use with RVs, ATVs, commuter vehicles, and boats). Depending upon your need the antenna may be a plug and play device or require magnetic or bolt mounting.

• Coaxial cables – Connecting the antenna and the booster is the coax cable. It is critical that the fibers of the cable be of a high quality material and that the connectors be compatible (male and female). Poor material fibers or connectors can cause the booster to have a weak signal. Also, the longer the coax cable, the more prone the cable will be causing a weak signal. The rule of thumb is to have a high quality fiber/connector cable with the least amount of extra cable to connect the two devices.

• Power Source – Typically, the power source can be plugged directly into a standard outlet. It is advised that you dedicate the outlet solely to the Motorola Cell Phone signal booster and that the power source be plugged into a surge protector for the best results.

Determine the Type of Cell Phone booster that you need

Should you require a cell phone signal booster, the next step is to determine the type of booster which you will require. Ask yourself if the booster will benefit you both at home and the office or if there is only one location which will use the booster. If only one location is needed, then a permanent mounted booster may be the best option. However, if you will need to move the booster from your house to your office, a desktop plug and play device may be the best solution. Those who require a signal booster when commuting should consider a mobile cell phone signal booster device in addition to their desktop or professionally mounted device.

Why use a weBoost or Wilson cell phone booster for your Motorola phone?

While there are generic brands of boosters on the market, it is advised that you never use such boosters with your phone. The reason is that the FCC has specific stipulations and regulations on Cell phone signal boosters. Every cell phone booster must be registered with the FCC through the network provider. In most instances, a generic cell phone signal booster does not meet these requirements and cannot obtain legal permission to the network/towers. Accessing the network or towers without permission can cause damage to your phone (by the motherboard, the circuits, the .net, the framework, or your data. Additional damage can occur to the network or the tower including interference or a shutdown of emergency response systems such as 911.

Motorola cell phone signal boosters by Wilson Electronics and weBoost ensure that the device is compatible with your phone as well as compliant with the regulations of the FCC and the network/towers. It also ensures that any compatible Motorola phone can be used with the cellphone signal booster. This means that should you ever change to a different Motorola phone, for example you go from a DROID 2 by Motorola to a Moto E, that the device will still benefit from the cell phone signal booster without the need to purchase a new device

Is there anything a cell phone booster cannot do?

While a cell phone signal can eliminate dropped calls, boost your communications, and increase signal based internet downloads, it cannot create a signal where one is not present. It cannot replace the need for a phone service subscription, increase your data plan, or hack into the network or towers.
