One of the frustration after I moved to my new house is the poor hand phone signal reception at the ground floor. Yes, you read me right. The hand phone reception signal is really bad but this only happens when I am on the ground floor… which basically make up of the living room, the study room, and the kitchen.
Surprisingly, the signal bar quickly shoots up to full strength the moment I am half way up the staircase leading to the upper floor – the bedrooms. I can enjoy excellent signal in my bedroom and second living room upstairs. I can even surf the Internet using GPRS and EDGE. I am a little out dated in this department because I have not upgraded to 3G yet. My phone doesn’t support 3G.
I missed a lot of calls just because I left my hand phone upstairs. No point having my hand phone with me while I am downstairs because I can’t get a signal down there!
Oh, before I forgot. I am a Digi Prepaid user. So, you really need to help me here, otherwise I will have to say goodbye to the Yellow Man (Digi’s mascot).
I have heard of mobile phone boosters, but I am really skeptic about this device. The device is so simple and costs less than US$5. If it’s really effective in boosting mobile phone reception signal, then why phone manufacturers do not include them in their products? What do you think? Do you think I should give this booster a try?… not sure if I can get it from a local phone store though.
