Inside My Head.. Reviews zBoost Connect

Kelli Avery with Inside My Head had major problems in her home getting good signal.  As she puts it;   “I’m lucky if I get up to 2 bars while I’m sitting inside and whenever any of us get a call we have to do the walk around the house and figure out where it’s gonna decide to work today. It switches all the time. Most times, for important calls, I usually end up outside.”

She decided to try out zBoost Connect in her home and provided the following review.

ZB540 Connect ImageThe zBoost CONNECT ZB540 boosts cell phone signals for voice calls and text for all major carriers.  It captures the reliable cellular signal at an interior window and rebroadcasts it further indoors, so you can enjoy clearer, faster and more reliable service without interruption. And you don’t need roof access or an attic for good performance – just attach the signal antenna to an inside window using the supplied suction cups.

The zBoost CONNECT is worth every penny. I have not had a single lost call, static conversation or eternally long download time in my data performance since the day I installed the signal booster.  I went from no bars in my dead zone to almost 3 full bars!

zBoost CONNECT ZB540 is my new best friend. It’s strangely relaxing knowing your not missing as many calls as you have in the past and quite relieving to know I have added security of my kids, family, school etc etc being able to reach me.

zBoost Responds to Cell Phone Signal SOS

zBoost Increases Cell Phone Signal on Aircraft Carrier Turned Museum

Indianapolis, IN – September 5, 2012 – Wi-Ex, a leading provider of consumer and commercial cell phone signal boosters for the home and office, announced today the “zBoost Responds to Cell Phone Signal SOS” case study today at CEDIA in booth #5647.

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, a military museum located on a historic World War II aircraft carrier in New York City, struggled with cell phone signal due to the solid steel infrastructure which hosts both the museum and offices of the staff. Darren Stone, AVP of Technology for the Intrepid, said the lack of cell phone signal “made life difficult especially in emergencies or power outages. Even simple tasks, like Enterprise Activation of Blackberries, required a technician to go outside and activate from our pier.”

Frustrated with the lack of cell phone signal, Stone installed the zBoost YX545 SOHO aboard the Intrepid. “The installation of zBoost was simple, quick and required no technical knowledge. As soon as we powered on the device, it was an instant success. We went from no coverage in our office to complete coverage with full signal, not only on a cellular level but also for data communications.” Continue reading

Happy Easter, Passover and Spring Break Week

This is one of my favorite weeks of the year.  The flowers are blooming, the birds are tweeting and the traffic in Atlanta is unusually good, since much of the city has gone to the beach for spring break.

Our family went to Hilton Head for five days and just got back last night, after enjoying warmer than normal temperatures.  If I wasn’t looking at a calendar, I would have thought it was the 4th of July instead of the first week in April.  The beaches were packed and many people were in the ocean swimming.

Two years ago I was in Hilton Head complaining about the cell signal and it hasn’t improved a bit.  Not only was I dropping and missing calls this week, but my iPhone battery was draining in just a few hours while searching for a stronger signal.  This area has a continued need for zBoost cell phone signal boosters.

zBoost Keeps Small Businesses Connected – Day 5 of the 12 Days of zBoost



Small businesses rely on cell phones to stay connected with customers and suppliers, making dropped or missed calls unacceptable. A zBoost SOHO is the solution for keeping small businesses connected. This holiday season a zBoost SOHO makes the perfect gift for small business owners struggling with bad cell service.  Jason Lewis of Jason Lewis Glass tells how the zBoost SOHO helped solve his small business signal issues.

I am a glassblower in Wells, Vermont where cell service is pretty spotty. Clear reception is essential for running my business and nobody likes getting one of “those static cell phone calls”.

Even though the cell phone provider guaranteed me service at my house, I got no bars until I got my zBoost. After adding the zBoost, I went from 0-1 bars to getting full service. Anywhere I previously got 1 bar, I now get full bars. And many, many places where I didn’t have any service I can now make clear calls. Cell service is priceless and buying the zBoost was worth every penny and so much more. If you live in rural America, this is the product for you. It’s quite rare that I’m this ecstatic about a product.

The zBoost is really, probably one of the best products I ever purchased. -Jason

New zForce In-Vehicle Cell Phone Signal Booster Adds Miles of Cheer – Day 2 of the 12 Days of zBoost


Road Trips Made Merry

Not only are the holidays the most wonderful time of the year, they are also the busiest! With end-of-year deadlines at work, shopping, holiday parties and travel plans, the holidays keep people constantly on the move. To reduce dropped or missed calls and data interruption during travel, Wi-Ex (www.Wi-Ex.com), a leading provider of consumer and commercial cell phone signal boosters, has launched zBoost zForce in-vehicle cell phone signal booster.

Americans spend a lot of time in their cars and even more over the holidays.  The Allstate 2011 Good Hands Roadside Assistance Survey shows that almost half (45 percent) of American drivers say they plan on taking a road trip of two or more hours during the upcoming holiday season.

With the amount of time spent in the car over the holidays, it is important that drivers and passengers stay connected. Because most long-distance holiday travel, about 91 percent, according to Bureau of Transportation Statistics, is by personal vehicle, cellphones and smartphones are a travel necessity.

Whether you’re using GPS to get to your next holiday party, distracting your children during a road trip, catching up on email or staying up-to-date on news and social media, wireless gadgets are travel lifelines.   The Bureau of Transportation Statistics also reported that the average long-distance trip length is 275 miles over the December holidays.

Now shipping, the zForce works with 800 MHz and 1900MHz phones which covers most carriers (except Nextel/iDEN, 4G or 2100MHz).  The zForce is easy to install and includes a bi-directional amplifier unit housed in a sturdy, lightweight cradle for hands-free operation, 12V cigarette power adaptor, external magnetic mount antenna with 15 ft cable and optional gooseneck cigarette lighter adapter.

The zBoost line allows consumers to take full advantage of data, voice and Internet services on their iPhones™, iPads™, connected devices and smartphones.

This holiday season help family, friends and co-workers stay connected during their holiday travel and all year long with the zBoost zForce.

iPhone 4S – Dropped Calls Survey

Computer World reports some interesting statistics regarding iPhone 4S dropped calls.  Looks like AT&T subscribers need a zBoost as much as ever.  Excerpts below…

iPhone 4S most popular iPhone ever

By Gregg Keizer   December 1, 2011

Computerworld – Apple iPhone 4S owners rated their smartphones higher than did people using last year’s iPhone 4, a pollster said today.

According to a survey conducted by ChangeWave Research in early November of more than 200 U.S. iPhone 4S owners, 77% said they were “very satisfied” with the device, with another 19% pegging “somewhat satisfied” for their answer.

Forty-nine percent of the iPhone 4S owners put Siri at the top of their list as the iPhone 4S’ best feature. In second place was “ease of use,” with 39%, followed by the device’s eight-megapixel camera (33%) and “faster Web browsing” (24%).

Those same iPhone 4S owners ranked poor battery life as their top disappointment, no surprise considering the large volume of complaints over the device’s power consumption.

Dropped calls, a woe that’s plagued iPhone owners for years, was less of a headache for iPhone 4S owners, said ChangeWave, attributing the better results to the influx of Verizon subscribers.

“In the current survey, nearly two-in-five iPhone 4S owners are using other wireless service providers — Verizon or Sprint — that have historically shown lower dropped call rates in our surveys than AT&T,” said ChangeWave in a blog post describing the recent poll’s results.

When dropped calls on the iPhone 4S are separated into two buckets, one for AT&T and the other for Verizon, the numbers are in line with historical trends: 4.1% of AT&T subscribers using the iPhone 4S reported dropped calls, more than triple the 1.3% of Verizon subscribers.

“The lower dropped call rate for the iPhone 4S in the current survey appears primarily attributable to owners now using multiple wireless service providers – as opposed to only using AT&T back in the July 2010 survey,” concluded ChangeWave.

ChangeWave’s November dropped-call numbers are in line, albeit slanted even more in favor of Verizon, with a similar survey the firm did last April.
