    Anyone used it or have one ??? Reception seems to have dropped off at home or the new phones arn`t as good so was looking at sure signal.





    Might have to get one off fleabay as I don`t have a £25 / month contract and im not paying £120 for one. Have 2 contracts worth over £25 but apparently that doesn`t count :(

    no they are £50 for over £25/month contracts or £120 or even £5 a month but that just seems daft imo

    I asked about one in the Voda shop the other day and the guy said it was £20 so I ripped his arm off. Seems to work ok to be honest.

    Odd thing is I find myself paying £20 for a device to cover the fact that they can't get a signal into my area.

    No noticeable affect on BB speeds, seems to work just fine.

    so do these calibrate with your own phone, or do they boost everybodys signal?

    You have to register your phone numbers on the Vodafone Sure Signal website.

    I got another one for £20 on Saturday. The guy said you need to be on a £40 tariff to get them for £20 but I told him I bought one last week for £20 so he did it.
