2Cheap4society: I have an S2, I want to make a patch lead but havent been able to find out what size the phone is. Have any Idea what yours is or an S2?
cramerelectronico: wich is name the this connector?
Peter Turner: I have a galaxy s3 brought the patch lead and antenna plug it in and wrecked my phone my phone came up no service to it, did a factory restore and still no go is you phone rooted
Ashley Smith: Awesome video!
Thanks for that, I had seen patch leads on ebay and even communicated with the seller, but couldn't work out how to uncover the plastic plugs on the back L1 & L2, then I grabbed a pair of small toenail scissors and tried again - the plug was easy, but carefully, removed.
carloszevahc2: ME TOO! So that signal cable works for wifi and phone service?
Dre4dwolf: This is pretty good if your on a boat or something and you want to use your phone to tether internet to other devices, W2 would let you put a proper antenna to share wifi (ad-hoc) and W1 would boost 3g/4g signal.
Darkking Ice: Basically
W1 - phone service
W2 - wifi
Cybertronic: that's good to know, i'd just need to crimp the cable lead to a larger one that fits the connector on the phone.
Whoopie: No, but I've used plenty of their antennae in other applications. They work well for other WiFi applications. I can only assume they'd work for a phone signal as well.
Cybertronic: has anyone tried using a laptop Antenna cable out of an LCD panel?
Hugh Jazz: About the only Smart Phone that you can do this on, an also allows Tethering when Iphones dont in some cases :)
Makes it the only handset for Country users that wish to have a high end smart phone.
I have tried Passive Craddles, not very good
I have tried Passive and Active full repeating systems, also not that good, come with plenty of set up and running problems
You will never get better than a patch lead and direct connection to the handset, matched with the correct external antenna.
Chrisco Wally: I had this lead use it a few times and the bit where you plug in the patch lead came off the phones motherboard = no coverage. ~$200 + a week later is the result.
Taengu Cheng: the w1 port represents the mobile internet while the w2 represents the wifi
Mike Trieu: telcoantennas(dot)com(dot)au/site/patch-lead-samsung-galaxy-s3-i9300
theaudiorampage: Why don't you guys combine the external antenna to the back plate of the phone, so it will boost all of the time.
ryan kirby: How would I do this on a galaxy note??
Miike Hunt: Cool, my S3 has 2 antenna ports though? (labelled W1 and W2).
takota clow: Excellent sir.. Where might I find the correct patch lead.? Or is that a universal txs
