How it Works
Your new Wilson SIGNALBOOST™ Amplifier has been carefully engineered to significantly
improve the performance of your cell phone or cellular data card in both vehicle and home/
office applications. Together with an antenna, the amplifier’s state-of-the-art technology is
designed to increase your signal up to 10-15 times, reduce disconnects and dropouts, and
increase data communication rates needed for 3G technologies. The universal connector
fits all cellular and PCS phones and data cards. (Not designed for iDEN/NEXTEL)
The antenna will collect the cell tower signal and send it through the cable to the amplifier.
The signal is then boosted and sent through the extension cable to the universal connector
on your cell phone or data card, which then communicates with the improved signal. When
the cell phone or data card transmits, the signal goes through the universal connector
and the extension cable, is boosted by the amplifier and broadcast back to the cell tower
through the antenna.
NOTE: Use of this amplifier with an antenna gain higher than 6.12 dBi is in violation of FCC
regulations for which the offender is fully liable. All Wilson mobile antennas are 6.12 dBi or
less.

Installing the Wilson Universal Connector
Amplifier
Universal
Connector
The universal connector must be placed
directly on the cell phone or cellular data
card to work properly. Attach the universal
connector to the cell phone or cellular data
card with the VELCRO® included in the
package.
The universal connector and extension
cable included in the package are long
enough to reach the amplifier location. This
allows for ease and convenience of use.
To adjust the universal connector for the
best signal, go to a weak signal location
where your cell phone registers only 1-2 bars
without the universal connector connected.
(Be sure the amplifier is turned off when
checking for low signal.) Then, attach the
universal connector to the phone, power up
the amplifier and you should see a signal
improvement of 2 or more bars.
NOTE: Many phones take up to 20 seconds
to reset the bar indicator.
Cellular data card
To maximize performance, attach the
universal connector as close as possible
to the original antenna on your cell phone or
cellular data card.
For cell phones with an internal antenna,
place the universal connector on the back,
upper left-hand corner of the phone. (Figure 1)
NOTE: Certain phones, such as the Motorola
RAZR, have internal antennas at the base,
rather than the top, in which case the universal
connector should be attached at the bottom
rear of the phone.
For cell phones with an external antenna,
place the universal connector directly below
the phone’s original antenna. (Figure 2)
If you have any questions as to the location
of the antenna on your phone, call Wilson

Powering up the Amplifier
Make sure both the outside antenna and
universal connector cables are connected
before powering up the amplifier.
For vehicle use, connect the power cable
from the DC power supply to the amplifier
input marked “Power” and insert the large
end into DC power socket (the cigarette
lighter outlet).
Carefully insert the power cable.
12 V DC power supply (included)
For home or office use, connect the
cable from the AC/DC power supply (sold
separately) to the amplifier input marked
“Power” and insert the plug end into a
standard wall outlet.
!
Warning: Use only Wilson power
supply units. Use of a non-Wilson
product may damage your equipment.
The amplifier may remain on all the time.
However, leaving the amplifier on in a
vehicle when it is not running can discharge
the battery in a day or two.
A good option is to power the amplifier
through the ignition switch so the amplifier
is turned on and off with the vehicle.
AC/DC power supply (not included)
IMPORTANT: Do not power up the
amplifier unless the antenna and universal
connector cables are attached to the
amplifier.
NOTE: The aluminum casing of the SIGNALBOOST™ amplifier will adjust very quickly to
the ambient temperature of its environment. For example, in the summer, when the inside
of a car can reach 140 degrees Fahrenheit, the amplifier temperature may be 150 degrees
or higher. The casing will be hot to the touch, similar to a metal door handle or steering
wheel. Such high temperatures will not damage the amplifier, nor do they pose a fire risk.
As recommended in these instructions, when installing the amplifier in a vehicle, select a
location with adequate ventilation, such as under the seat or dashboard. Keep the area
free of items that could block air flow to the amplifier.

Notes:
1. Nominal gain is the maximum gain at any frequency in the passband.
2. Nominal bandwidth is the difference between two frequencies that are adjacent to the passband where the amplification is 20 dB
lower than the passband amplification. One of the frequencies is lower than the passband and the other is higher.
3. The Manufacturer’s rated output power of this equipment is for single carrier operation. For situations when multiple carrier
signals are present, the rating would have to be reduced by 3.5 dB, especially where the output signal is re-radiated and can
cause interference to adjacent band users. This power reduction is to be by means of input power or gain reduction and not by
an attenuator at the output of the device.
4. The maximum power for 2 or more simultaneous signals will be reduced by 6 dB every time the number of signals is doubled.
