Do these actually work?

    Do they actually make a difference? It says it re-radiates the signal, but would this also increase the damage that phone radiation does to your body? I'm not usually bothered about phone radiation as I don't use my phone to make calls very often, but if this would increase the radiation significantly then I won't bother.

    Does it work? :)

    Thanks in advance,

  2. I got one of those free a few years back, stuck it in my phone. Didn't make any difference.

    And I doubt you'd have to worry about any health risks mate :), I'd be more worried about the impact on my wallet, for no benifit :p
     
  3. Alright, thanks for the info, I'm still interested in getting one though, living in cornwall there isn't a lot of reception about so it it even only works a little bit then it would be an advantage.

    Save your £2. They don't do diddly.
     
  5. Yeah, they don't do nothing really.
     
  6. So if I'm to read your post correctly, they actually do something?

    Double negatives are fun.:p

    It's a double edged sword really. Yes they do work kinda like tin foil on your tv antenna does. On the down side they also amplify Noise on the signal so it actually sounds worse in many situations.

    I would try a new provider if you have an alternative...Back when I got my first cell phone nothing made my reception any better except switching to Verizon.

    I had one in an old cell phone (2001) and it seemed to work. now I would just change providers if I had that problem
     
  11. The house I am in are on different providers and they all have the same problem, I'm on orange which usually has great signal.

    If they worked, don't you think the phone manufacturers would have figured it out, and built one in to the handset in the factory?

    Or perhaps the guy in ebay knows more about designing phones than Nokia?
