How to improve GSM signal at home?

If you want to make a GSM amplifier on your own using the available tools, you can try some simple ways to improve phone signal. It is quite uncomplicated tricks, however, bear in mind that their effect can’t be observed always and everywhere. Among the most popular ways to improve GSM signal at home, there are the following.

  1. In order to improve cellular signal easily and without extra effort you will need an ordinary paper clip. Find a hole on your phone where the antenna should be located. Straighten one end of paper clip and push it gently into the hole, so as not to damage the phone. Attach tightly the rest of the paper clip to the phone and secure it well with tape. Number of lines (bars) on your phone should be increased.
  2. You can also try to improve cell phone signal using a copper wire. To do this you will need insulated copper wire, ruler, skewer, wire cutters.Take a 20 cm wire, measure 5 cm and bend it to 90˚ angle. At the bending point wrap the wire around the skewer five times and take out the skewer – some loops will remain on the wire. This will be our antenna. After, strip 1 cm from the end of the long piece of wire. Now stretch loops on the wire so that the distance between each one was about 3 mm.

Now carefully insert the bare end of the wire into the hole for an external antenna on your  phone - and you will notice the signal increase.

These methods can only be applied to phones that have this hole for an external antenna, but today many models don’t have it. Also remember that experimenting with different makeshift methods to improve signal, sometimes can’t improve the connection, and even worsen it, moreover, these actions can damage the phone. Therefore it is better to use a proven device such as GSM booster, you can choose it using our Helper. High quality and safety of our boosters is documented with CE and RoHS certificates.
