Phonetone AN-CP65 Cell Phone Signal Booster


With the popularity of mobile communications, people want to make a call anytime, anywhere, so the coverage requirement of communication network is higher and higher, but the reality is not so, sometimes mobile phone signal is not very good, you want to make a smooth call, even in some places cell phone cannot dial out. in this cases, cell phone signal booster can solve this problem in a certain extent.


  • AGC(Automatic Gain Control): When the downlink output signal is too strong or self- oscillated,the uplink and downlink can automatically reduce the gain and reduce the interference signal
  • Self- Oscillation elimination: The system detects self- Oscillation, first reduces the linkgain, then detects the loop, and finds that the self- oscillation is eliminated, the system returns to normal working state, otherwise, the power is turned off to prevent interference signal.
  • Inactivity Mode: When no user calls, the device is in standby mode, the uplink power amplifieris switched off, and the static power is decreased by 30%, so as to achieve the purpose of energy saving.


This equipment should be installed and operated with a minimum distance 20cm (8 inches)between the radiator& your body.

  1. Installation of Outdoor Antenna
    The booster’s main function is to improve weak RF signals of an area. A simple formula: Input power+ Gain= Output power. The signal strength from the outdoor antenna directly affects the efficiency of the indoor coverage. It is very important to choose the outdoor antenna location in order to get the best signals.
    • Testing the signal strength received from outdoor antenna mounted in site by mobile phone:
    • Please select the top of building to install the outdoor antenna if total floors are less than 7 floors, and shall try your best to select places like balcony or platform lower than 7th floor for outdoor antenna if the buildings are over 7 floors, because the mobile signals are clean at less than 7th floor.
    • The mobile phone shall display full bar signals in location where the outdoor antenna is installed
    • The phone calls or data transmission shall be smooth and stable by 3 times testing in location where the outdoor antenna is to be installed
    • As shown from the above illustration, testing the signals from A to E, and select a best place that displays full bar signals to install the outdoor antenna.
    • Selecting the installation direction of outdoor antenna.
    • The outdoor antenna shall point to the direction of the tower, and it would be much better to keep line of sight.
    • Please select the opposite directions for outdoor antenna and indoor antenna. If outdoor and indoor antennas have to be installed in the same direction, please install them only after the signal quality is tested and the self-oscillation is avoided. If the directional antenna is selected, the main directional angle should point to the tower antenna.
    • If the performance is poor due to weak signals or poor phone call quality, please adjust the direction of outdoor antenna or change its position in order to obtain the best calling effect.
    • The wide band booster supports all mobile operators or different mobile systems, so please adjust the outdoor antenna direction to have balance between signals of different mobile operators or various mobile systems.
    • Connect the outdoor antenna to the booster connector marked OUTDOOR with 10 meters 3D-FB Coaxial cable with N male connector
      Important : Outdoor antenna installation —Notes:
    • In order to avoid interference, please note that the outdoor antenna should be far away from the following objects of metal, high-voltage line, RF antenna and high-voltage transformer.
    • Booster is a two-way signal Booster. So proper isolation between outdoor antenna and indoor antenna is necessary in order to avoid self-oscillation.
    • The minimum distance between outdoor antenna and indoor antenna shall be more than 10 meters; again the direction of outdoor and indoor antennas shall be opposite.
    • As shown in the below illustration, the booster the downlink signal r from the tower and send to the indoor antenna hereafter. If the distance between outdoor antenna and indoor antenna is less than the required distance, the amplified signal R will go back from indoor antenna to outdoor antenna. So it will lead to self-oscillation and reduce the coverage area, also the bad calling quality could happen at the same time, and the worse is that the mobile network could be influenced badly and the operators will finally come to shut off the booster system.
    • If isolation can’t be achieved by the limited distance, the roof of the building or any other barriers can be used in between to increase isolation.
    • Fix the donor antenna after selecting the best position, and adjust slightly its height or angles in order to get the signals with suitable input power level and calling quality.
  2. Installation of Indoor Antenna
    • Proper antennas shall be selected according to the site conditions and the requirement.
    • Omni antenna (Indoor ceiling omni antenna or whip antenna), is suitable to be installed in the center and radiate all directions.
    • It is better to use a directional panel antenna when the coverage shape is long and narrow (corridors, long row of houses in two sides, tunnels or elevators or rural open space).
    • Connect the indoor antenna to the booster connector marked INDOOR with 5 meters 3D-FB Coaxial cable with N male connector
  3. Booster Installation
    • Do not place the equipment in direct sunlight or in an area that has abrupt temperature and humidity changes .
    • it is suggested that the booster is installed in a cool,dry and ventilated room without erosive gas and smoke.
    • Connect power adaptor to the booster, and connect The other end of the power adaptor to the power outlet.
      The input voltage for the booster is +5V DC. DO NOT use this Booster with a regular power supply that NOT +5V . otherwise, it will be damaged and the user may also be injured.

2. Check the power outlet, the power adapter plug maybe is poor connected.

3. If the problem is still not solved, please contact our company support at [email protected]

Booster has no effect 1. Check whether the direction of the booster is worng connected.

2. Make a call to your mobile phone operator to determine if the frequency band is correct.

3. Check whether the indoor and outdoor antenna is installed correctly

4. At the location where the outdoor is installed, if your mobile phone is able to receive a stable 3 bars cell phone signal, If not, find a location where the mobile phone can receive a better signal to install the outdoor antenna.

5. Whether or not your house is a metal roof. If so, you will need to set

up your outdoor antenna at least 3 meters above the roof.

Booster has effect ,but the effect is not ideal Check if your outdoor signal is very weak. If you can only receive one or two bars cell phone signal in the outdoor.

If so, contact our customer service and ask to replace the booster or antenna with a higher gain alternative.

Mobile phone can receive full signal, but can not normally

make a call

It Usually means that the booster is self-oscillated, please make the distance between the indoor and outdoor antenna as far as possible, it is better to use a wall or metal to Separate the indoor antenna and the out door antenna.

During using your Booster, if the Booster interferes with your radio or another electronic device, move the Booster further away from those devices, you might be able to solve it yourself.

Consumer booster warning label

A subscriber must have the consent of a wireless provider to operate a Consumer Signal Booster. Subscribers may obtain provider consent in a variety of ways. For example, AT&T, Sprint, T–Mobile, and Verizon Wireless have voluntarily committed to allow their subscribers to use properly certificated Consumer Signal Boosters (i.e., boosters that meet the new rules) on their networks. Also, a signal booster manufacturer could seek authorization for use of a particular booster model on behalf of all subscribers of individual providers. Alternatively, a provider may specify a testing protocol that if satisfied would result in licensee consent to specific booster models. A subscriber may also seek a licensee’s express consent to operate a signal booster, e.g., by phone call or e-mail
The following selected information about wireless providers’ Consumer Booster registration mechanisms supplements the requirements and information,and the FCC Signal Boosters website (http://wireless.fcc.gov/signal-boosters/).

Sprint Nextel will allow consumers to register their signal boosters by calling their toll-free number. They have already trained their calling center and have designated an engineer to handle inquiries. They may eventually allow consumers to register on their website but they want to gauge how the process works via phone first.
