    I haven't tested both together yet but have both for now. Please read thread, but RS2 also supports 1900 PCS frequency in addition to 1700/2100 AWS. LTE compatible one should be released by the end of the year.

    They are supposed to be used as far apart as possible with the window unit by the window for best performance. I would email the Nextivity to see what they have to say about side by side operation.

    I doubt that's true.. They've been telling me they are out of stock of RS1s the past year... and Still keep telling me they are out of stock even today.. You just have to get the right person to help you.

    Well after a few days for some reason it is not working anymore. Now it says it has 2 bars and the base says 7 for the link, but we have 1 bar on phones and it keeps switching to Edge on us. Called CS they say no issues in area, seems to be all they say even though clearly there is something wrong. They now say they are out completely on rs1 and rs2, even loyalty says they are out, so it is either send it back and not get a replacement, or wait and see if there is just a tower issue and hope it starts working again. We waited 7 months to get one, I really don't want to send it back lol

    Our RS1 is working again, not as good as it was when first hooked up, but 2 solid bars are better than no bars.

    I am a walmart family mobile customer. we have voice signal problems sometimes. since we also use tmobile towers would these things work for me? does the rs1 help voice quality at all or just data? thanks

    Hey all I got the T-mobile branded RS 1 Cel-fi repeated from eBay. I used to have No Serivce in my office building. I would have an occasional 2 Bars of Edge. I recently got the Cel-Fi for $125 shipped and installed it in my office. I have full 4G services and it works great. It was a great investment for my self. My co-workers with T-Mobile are enjoying the benefits of the service.

    The window where i have the window device has full four bars as my phone does if it is directly on the window. I have the AWS compatible iphone 5. I get about 5-6mbs Down and .50 mbps up. ENough for netflix or youtube.

    I have now called T-Mobile more than 2 dozen times over the last 2 months. Each time I am told that the Cel-Fi are currently unavailable and that I should call back in 2-3 days to check on the status. On one occasion I was told that T-Mobile has discontinued the program, but future calls were more optimistic.

    Just confirmed it wih T-mobile that they suspended or shut down this program indefinately. This take effect Starting in June 17th.

    Please don't take my word for it. Co firmed it through both account rep and technical department.
