My father has an iphone 5 with PagePlus service. (verizon)
He lives in an old apartment building.
He has a signal near the windows, but really bad service everywhere else.

I want to get a cell phone signal booster.
I can't put an antenna on the roof and string down a cable to his apartment.
He doesn't have an internet box - he uses Optimum wifi. (He has a booster by his window to catch the signal and strengthen it to reach his laptop. )

I need something that goes by the window, but doesn't need to be plugged into a cable box.

Is there such a thing?
Perhaps a newer iphone can help. The 5 is most likely missing frequencies that can help.
Anyone with a newer verizon iphone test out the service in the same apartment?

Wouldn't feel comfortable using it, like who touched it before and used it, what is if it was tampered and someone put something else in? Who knows what can be there or germs
Hmm, otherwise the hotel room is germ free??

It can't be a standalone line, it needs to be an add on to your current Verizon phone plan.

Can confirm it doesn't work at all in Canada
I wonder if turning on data roaming in the settings would help.

Front pads and rotors on daughters 2013 Sonata running around $170. Price of poker has gone up.
Rockauto shows pads and rotors from 60 to 160.00

Guess u want only top of line....

400 does seem steep even for a shop for just front two wheels pads and rotors..

Every fruit usaully has the number for the item, aside for it being a plum or peach it's item number 0104 so no need to look for a plum or peach on the screen just type in 0104 amd weight the fruits and tap the sticker on the bag, and done.
1-2-3 by me.
Right but that number wasnt on the fruits sticker. It might have been on the price sign but this was my 1st time trying so it was just quicker to let the cashier ring me up.

Tello uses sprint but many Verizon phones will work on sprint or tello. You can use an imei checker for byod on sprint's site or maybe tello site

In response to the original question, it has not improved my quality of life. My biggest gripe is that it has become something that I can't live without. So much so, that even if I personally decided that I will no longer carry one, that won't fly with my job. I am expected to be able to respond to emails and Whatsapp and other messages on the fly. I absolutely hate the fact that if I forget my phone I feel like I left my pants at home. It's ridiculous.

There are some redeeming qualities to it though. I like certain whatsapp groups, like my family's group, shul group etc. and I feel like it gives me the opportunity to be in touch in a way which would not otherwise be possible. There is certain news I appreciate knowing as soon as it breaks, though most news I can definitely live without. There are utilities I use such as smart timers for my switches, Nest etc. which are invaluable.

Of course, how could I live without instant notices of hot, hurry and sizzling deals from Dan's? This alone makes it a must.
I got the notices from Dan via SMS for a long time. Dont need a smartphone for the notice....

Why is it crazy? People have been talking in shul since forever, how is this any different?
True but that feels a bit different.
Would a person bring a laptop into shul and use it while davening...

Tried it in Brooklyn location but the fruits and vegetables were a pain . You need to weigh it and find the product code to get a proper barcode. Fruits have barcodes but most didnt work by the weight machine

People who keep it on tallis bag end up looking at it every 30 seconds

I have even seen people texting during shmona esrei because they were using it as a siddur.

It got me disgusted and vowed to not take it out at all.
