Why Do I Need to Know This?
You’ll need to know which frequencies your phone operates on to purchase a booster that is compatible with it, or to ask the right questions when you decide to buy a cellular device that is not manufactured by your service provider. When you purchase a new phone, you need to be sure that it is compatible with the calling frequencies (MHz) and data connections (2G, 3G, 4G LTE, 5G) used by your network. Cellular phones, repeaters, amplifiers, and antennas are frequency-specific. The boosters you buy need to support the cell phone frequency used by your carrier in the area you plan to use them. PRO-CELL signal boosters are compatible with all cell phone carriers and all phones on the five major frequencies listed above.
