Improves cellular reception for Quad-Band phones such as the iPhone. This is the only booster that will work for the 3G iPhone.
Allows you to use your cell phone as your only phone - cancel your landline service!
The package includes everything you need to boost signal.
The signal antenna receives the signal, and mounts to a window in your apartment. The antenna mounts to the inside of the glass, meaning you dont have to go outside or up on your roof. This means the zBoost Metro can be installed in just a few minutes
Ultra-thin RG59-mini cable then runs from the signal antenna to the base unit.
The base unit, indoor antenna and power supply are then placed in the center of the 1,500 sq ft where you want to improve signal.
Perfect for single story settings – no vertical separation needed
Increases your indoor signal – up to 1500 sq feet
Decreases dropped or missed calls
Easy to set up – comes complete with everything needed
No cradle or connections to your phone
Works with all phones and wireless data cards on 800 and 1900MHz (except Nextel, iDEN)
Works with all US carriers
Protects the carrier network using patent-pending technology
Complete booster system installs indoors! Includes a window antenna that mounts using suction cups!
The Signal Antenna is best positioned on the interior of a window located in the area of strongest signal – higher is usually better
For the widest possible signal area, it is recommended that you position the Base Unit near the middle of a room, or mount on an interior wall
While the YX540 Metro does not require vertical separation, the Base Unit and Signal Antenna should have at least 8 feet of horizontal separation
Greater separation between the Base Unit and Signal Antenna will generally produce enhanced coverage
For best results, keep the Base Unit off the floor and at least 2 feet away from other cords, metal objects or other wireless devices
Antenna works best when not around metal
Includes 40ft Cable
Extends phone battery life (uses less power when signal is stronger)

Recent Review: Roger - GalvestonIN, GalvestonIN - 3/28/2013 YX549
YX549 Roger - GalvestonIN, GalvestonIN - 3/28/2013 I live in a 3000 ft. house and it works great.
Lots of signal 40 ft from the window xbluenose - Calgary, Canada - 3/28/2013 My assistant sits 40 ft from the window in an office pool with concrete floors above and below and cubicles all around. With this signal booster she went from having half a bar from time to time to 5 bars all the time. Big smiles - best office gift ever!From other reviews I was expecting a small radius of signal but it still works at 25 ft away from the rebroadcast antenna i.e. covering ave
Outstanding Old Man - New Boston, Boston Il - 3/28/2013 Simple to install and use
Thank goodness it works Paul - Neskowin, in OR - 3/28/2013 My office is between a busy section of I-5 and a busy state highway. My home is in a community of 200 that grows to 5000 in the summer time. Both locations had my Apple iPhone4 dropping 90 percent of my calls. With the addition of YX 540 I have NO dropped calls.
Didn';t work at first try als - Fort Atkinson, WI - 4/13/2013 2:12:21 PM I bought the YX 540 for our home in northern Wisconsin, our cell service is poor indoors and ok (2 bars on my Galaxy S3 outside), lots of trees. I wanted to try some sort of signal booster, the YX 540 is more of a repeater than a booster but thought I';d try it. I tried it in all the windows in our home with little to no better I bought the YX 540 for our home in northern Wisconsin our cell service is poor indoors and ok (2 bars sometimes on my Galaxy S3 outside) I tried the yx540 in all the windows in our home with little to no better reception on my phone (dissapointed). I have a 40 foot TV tower, so I climbed to the top, took out my cell phone from my pocket and it showed full service. I then screwed my window antenna to a 3/4" square piece of wood about 3'; long (I realize this antenna is made for indoor use only) but I had nothing to lose as it didn';t work indoor anyway. I took my antenna now mounted to my wooden pole and climbed to the top of my tower, I used black electrical tape to secure my pole and antenna to the tower (which worked well as this is not heavy) with the coax attached to the antenna I started down the tower taping the coax to the tower every 2'; or so to keep the wind from blowing it around. I ran the coax into the house through a nearby window, I then connected the coax to the base unit, pluged it into the outlet and guess what, it worked great, (no bull) I have 4 to full bars of signal now inside (no less than 3) as i walk from room to room. No more going outside to use my phone. I';m not sure how long this antenna will last in the elements outdoors? But I';ll buy an outdoor antenna when it fails. Allan Eagle River, WI
Does exactly what its supposed to do! Q the computer - Kansas, Kansas - 3/28/2013 Rented a small office for my business. I only use a cell phone as my business phone. In the new office I was only getting 1 bar and missing calls and couldnt use data. Put this in and everything is working great. The window mount antenna does the trick but does have to be quite a distance from the base unit. So had to strike a deal with someone 2 doors down. In return everyone is getting better s
This product really works well !! Moleman - Central Iowa, Central Iowa - 10/26/2011 This window mounted unit is what i needed for my home as i had put on a steel roof & had limited use with my cell phone reception. Im sold.
This thing works but... anchor - lanham, MD - 10/23/2013 9:27:27 PM I get good signal from the window wherethe antenna is installed.this is important because the base unit gave me the same signal strength BUT only if Im in the same room.it seems as if anything that gets in the way reduces signal strength.if you can install in a central location itll probably work best.I wouldnot expect a full 1500 sq.ft range/coverage.
Usable but not great in a rural location jdm - Pipersville, ersville PA - 3/28/2013 I live in a rural area and cell coverage is poor. This product with a window antenna is marginal for my situation but it does give me 2 bars in the house near the unit after considerable experimenting with the window antenna location.Coverage in the house was less than expected - you have to be fairly close to the unit. I decided to keep the unit and will probably try an outdoor antenna to impr
