How to determine your Cell Phone frequency range using WirelessAdvisor.com

There are two common frequency bands that all cell phone carriers use. The Cellular band commonly referred to as 1900 uses the frequencies 1850-1990. The other band is PCS which is the 800 MHz band uses frequencies in the 824-894 range. Most of our cellular phone signal products work on one or the other.

This will pull up a list of all the cell phone service carriers in your area.

A. If your carrier has only one listing then you’ll find the frequency in the highlighted field after “SYSTEM:”


B. If there are two listings for your carrier, one for 800 MHz and second listing for 1900 MHz then your carrier operates on the 800 MHz band.



Important Notes:

If you are not sure which frequency range your cell phone operates on based on the information provided by Wireless Advisor, we suggest that you go with a "Dual Band" cell phone repeater such as the
zBoost YX510-PCS/CEL from Wi-Ex.
