    guys i am using k800i and in that i have FM radio inbuilt....i have really bad FM reception there in my place....

    i am also using AIRTEL network.... which is also pretty bad...i have repeatedly complained but they are not taking any notice of it..

    OK my question is how to boost radio and network signal...

    is there any waqy like using wires or anything like that which can maximize my signal???

    and for the network is there any device that can boost the signal which we could buy and use???? for say a 500mts radius or less ..whtever it amy be..

    if u wann better mobile network signal u can get an external antenna and connect it to your phone , but then your mobile phone will become a wired phone [ it'll cost only about 500 rupees]

    or u can connect a internal signal booster to the external antenna and get excellent reception for around 3000 sq feet [ it'll cost around 16k ]

    this is the only indian companylink [i guess] that provides such a wireless booster , they are based in mumbai and the cost of the complete kit [ external antenna. booster, internal antenna ] costs around rs 18,000

    they've got the kits starting from 18,000 rupees to around 6 lakh....

    are u sure u wanna spend 18 k for signal amplification..???

    if u dont wann a wireless solution u can go for an external antenna and connect it to ur fone using a cable instead of the internal repeater and booster [ it'll cost only rs 500]


    check the link and mail them,the site is quite informative

    I didn't mean to tell u wrap around ur headphone wire
    A normal wire abt 5-6 inches
    It worked for me.

    @ naveen

    the stickers u've seen on t.v are useless just crap so forget about it

    so the cheaper option:

    1-buy a uni-directional/omi directional external antenna
    2-get a external antenna adapter for your phone
    3-connect the phone to the external antenna using the adapter

    and if u keep the antenna somewhere outside,a place with proper signal reception then the antenna will pick up the signal so u'll be able to call/gprs...

    hmm.....

    the external antenna would cost 450 rupees

    the fone adapter would cost 80 rupees

    but finding the adapter would be hard ; if u are going for original sony adapter it will cost a few hundread rupees...



    but
    __________
    i've heard that bsnl is also providing unlimited gprs for 350 per month [ only for postpaid users though]

    so if u are only intersted in gprs get BSNL instead

    hi, i have a transcend mp3 player and has bad radio reception.

    so will attaching a ferrite core(not included) to its carry strap near the player's body increase reception?

    also the wire u r asking to wrap around the player-should it be naked or insulated?
