Last year coverage at my cottage was good.  This year it's reallys spotty.  I switched from a Nexus phone to a Galaxy 2... maybe that's the issue?

 

Does Telus sell any kind of signal booster? 

 

When I was in the US I bought a Wilson signal booster but the darn thing didn't work with the frequencies for my provider so I want to be sure this is one designed to work with Telus devices.

 

Any ideas?  Thanks!

No, they don't.

 

You can look around but I highly doubt you'll find one that works with Telus. The frequencies are similar to ones in states but things can be picky...

That one you linked was for 800/1900MHz? TELUS runs on 850/1900MHz.

Depending where you live there are some cell phone stores/companys that do sell cell phone boosters.
I know where I work were just a dealer for telus and we sell Wilson boosters and I havent gotten a refund yet. 🙂
This is the one we sell where I work. its 430$ and its great for areas with low service.
Its ment for more small closed in areas but looking around the website im sure theres lots more you can find.

The Wilson booster works at my cabin with my telus iPhone.
