    Thanks man. I’m sorry I’m just now seeing this. Being in the Airforce as a flyer, I’m gone a lot and my wife wanted a good, loyal friend (besides our two cats) and a little bit of protection…. She’s an awesome dog so far. I’m sorry for your loss. Wish we could wheel and have you meet my pup! :)

    ok just came back from camping. Weboost does work but dont get high-expectations from we boost , its boosting signal by only a bar, when i had extended with one bar, weboost did a boost to one more bar and i could make a phone call, in some areas on the way back home i had 4 bars extended cellular signal, i turned weboost on and it was showing LTE 3 bars but damn internet didnt work and couldn't send a photo over text message.

    Done by me: decals, plastidip, and vinyl. More to come. Not done by me: Icon front/rear suspension; Total Chaos UCA’s; Method wheels/34” Falken tires; Prinsu cab rack/LED light bar; V1Air compressor piped to a 2.5 gallon underbed tank; Pelfreybilt front/rear bumpers; Smittybilt front winch.
    This is how my Verizon is all the time. If I don’t have 4 bars of LTE it’s all questionable speed from there down. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

    Good to know though, as I had been waiting to see how it worked for ya.

    Thanks for the update. Your experience may have convinced me to just go for a Bivy stick. At least that way I know I can communicate no matter what, even if it is only through text.

    garmin inreach mini is great for that. I love mine. I like that I can send preset messages from camp without having to link it to my phone.

    I Didn’t realize bivy stick got purchased by ACR though. That definitely beefs up their legitimacy.

    It is important to understand "cell signal" and "internet (data)" are 2 totally different things.
    That means some areas will only provide cell signal, and rarely the case that they only provide data.
    I have been in the middle of the mountains with full bars (cell) and only have 0.5 MBPS data speeds.

    A cell booster will boost both cell and data but most of the rural areas have cell only for emergencies.

    Well i guess thats the reason i bought it to make emergency calls, not browsing internet while im camping . Well anyways im not to impressed with weboost, but my Verdict is , was is worth it $600 for emergency calls? Answer is yes, sometimes all you need is to make one single phone call and there you have it.

    My hi-boost does about the same. They have an app that's supposed to show you how well it's working, but I have the one phone the app doesn't work on, so it's a guessing game.
