They work well, rather or not you want one of these over a microcell (commonly misrepresented as a "Cell phone booster") is up to the persons needs. They have some other information on them also it seems.
Basically a microcell can broadcast a signal further depending on the booster used but on average they do, but it's not using legit cell signal, it's just creating a cell signal from the device, which is then routed through your home internet. No signal areas could be totally dead and zero signal at all however with signal so close to you it's unlikely, when using a signal repeater or booster you don't use your phones antenna.
Follow these steps: Using your aircard in a Cradlepoint router?
For many modems, you can update the PRL right from the router: Updating Your PRL in a Cradlepoint Router.
Your EVDO modem does automatically "know" to add new towers to its PRL, so it is highly recommended that you manually update your PRL monthly so that you can ensure that your EVDO device is always able to connect to the currently available EVDO towers.
Need help determining which version PRL you have and updating to the latest version?
pretty good way to increase your chance of brain cancer by using those.
signal repeaters (which i think is what you looked at) are good at providing a signal in the general area provided they have a signal themselves. i'm at the very edge of a deadzone myself and besides what i said above there isnt much to do about it.
calls get missed or dropped at times but its not bad (and i have a landline also so no big deal).
if you have high speed internet keep in mind you might be able to VOIP and not rely on spotty signal. Maybe someone who has had the same problem can help....moved to an area that does not have Verizon cell phone coverage.
