They work well, rather or not you want one of these over a microcell (commonly misrepresented as a "Cell phone booster") is up to the persons needs. They have some other information on them also it seems.
Basically a microcell can broadcast a signal further depending on the booster used but on average they do, but it's not using legit cell signal, it's just creating a cell signal from the device, which is then routed through your home internet. No signal areas could be totally dead and zero signal at all however with signal so close to you it's unlikely, when using a signal repeater or booster you don't use your phones antenna.
: In VZ Access Manager, in the menu bar select "About VZ Access manager" from the "Help" menu ("VZAccess Manager" menu on Mac).
I did see that Verizon has a booster for 9, haha, I pay enough for their service, I'm surely not going to pay more! the few that do work also magnify the signal past the limits set forth by phone manufacturers.
