Smitty77_7 Posted August 21, 2015 Report Share Posted August 21, 2015 Technology always moves of fast, and provides ample opportunities to spend funds to help the economy from these changes:)! Our timing on buying equipment, was right in sync when we bought our existing cell phone amp, the Wilson Sleek 4G-V Model 815125. Yep, about 5-6 weeks later Wilson came out with their version that would work on many other carriers, including my wife's ATT iPhone. I've been retaining this Wilson Sleek 4G-V as my primary way to boost our data feed while traveling. Seeing ample dBm gains, in some cases, up to between 12-18+ increase. This was with our old firs generation Motorola Droid X, and until recently with the follow on RAZR M. Enough with the background, with the added info that I'm anxiously awaiting the new Maximum Signal Booster:)! So, the RAZR M battery started to swell, so I elected to replace it with the Samsung S6. Still learning the differences between Samsung and Motorola, and with me - that will be a slow process. So now my question: When I place the Samsung S6 as best as I can into the cradle of the Wilson Sleek 4G-V, I detect no signal boost at all? Network mode on the S6 was set to 'Global' when I fired up the phone. I have 'LTE/CDMA' as well as 'LTE/GSM/UMTS' Preferred Network Mode's to choose from. I did change it over to LTE/CDMA of a few minutes, and it still registered dBm readings, but again, no dBm differences when in the Sleek. I'm wondering if my older RAZR M's 4G/LTE bands were more compatible with this older phone? As we wait for what I expect will be a longer term (hopefully several years, due to the investment costs) solution on amplification via Maximum Signal's new amp. I still need to support us as well as I can now while traveling. Any tips or advise on why I'm no longer seeing a better signal while in the Sleek Cradle with the Samsung S6, would be appreciated. (Settings on the S6 that I may be missing?) In the same park, and so far, I'd say the bulging battery RAZR M - was providing a better data speed to the internet then the Samsung S6. Suspect the dBm boost from the Sleek is the reason. It is a different day, and weather patterns and volume of cell tower traffic, etc. - could easily be there reason for this. But I admit, after going to a much more current phone, I expected better, not worse - data speeds. Input appreciated:)!
