Since we first heard that Wilson was developing the Sleek, we couldn't wait to get our hands (and phones) on one. An all-in-one cell phone signal booster for any cell phone that barely costs more than some traditional antennas?! It sounded too good to be true! To our extreme excitement, it was not too good to be true - the Sleek is small, portable, effective, and affordable.
Obviously, the most important consideration for a signal boosting product (or any electronic equipment) is whether it works. Price and style are nice, but if the product doesn't perform well, any other feature is irrelevant. To test the Sleek's performance, we tested it with a variety of different phones and even some aircards, in several different locations, and were consistently impressed with the results.

The signal booster brought up our data signal from almost unusable to moderately good. We are very happy with it. It is a good solution since we don't have a very good Verizon signal where we are.

I was very pleased with the improvement in our cell phone signal after we installed the unit. We live on an islland in the Exuma chain of island in the Bahamas and internet service is through a cell phone tower a few miles away. After installing the device we were actually able to do Skype and occassionally Magic Jack phone. We had never been able to do either prior to this time

First--I live in the foothills, known for poor reception. I purchased a portable mifi with the best specs and reviews I could find. Drawback was could only get 1 bar consistently--I purchased the Wislon 4g universal smartech III with only a small hope of much improvement. Lo and behold, after folloing the simple directions---I now have continous 3bar and good portion ot the time 4 bars--AMAZING! could not be happier--so, even if you have a weak signal--i suggest giving this unit a try--thx Paul j

I bought this Sleek to work with a Pantech MHS291 MiFi. The Sleek did indeed amplify the signal to where I could receive 4G where the MiFi was only getting 3G by itself. I was using a 9 dB trucker antenna with the MiFi directly and was getting random 4G signal at this location.. The Sleek about doubled the increased signal strength compared to the increase of the MiFi with no antenna to MiFi with the 9dB antenna.
The issue I have with the Sleek is that with the variety of retaining arms for holding the Phone/Hotspot, none fit the Pantech MHS291 well. The USB cable for the MiFi doesn't clear the hole in the arm, even the taller one. I had to cut the top bar of the arm to make clearance. On the other side, the retaining arm blocks the MiFi Power button making it necessary to remove the MiFi to power it off.

Bought this to use with our MiFi hotspot because it's the first all-band booster we've found - works for both Verizon 4G and 3G. It roughly doubles our available signal strength, according to the MiFi dashboard. We use an external antenna, not the 5" one supplied. Only gripes would be that none of the supplied brackets will firmly hold our MiFi - they seem to be more smart-phone sized, but a small bungee resolves that - and that for our MiFi, we get the best results when the MiFi is inserted face-down, so the battery is on top. I guess that must put the MiFi antenna closer to the Sleek antenna. Other than those two minor things, we're completely satisfied.

The arms are removable. Extra arms are included but they are all the same size. No arms for very large phones are included. At this time there is no power supply for use with 110-120v (which I need for my RV) and a higher amperage USB external power supply must be found elsewhere. The 3Gstore staff helped hunt down the correct voltage and amperage needed, so I was able to order the power supply then order this device. Cudos to 3Gstore staff for honesty, integrity, and willingness to find what was needed. NOTE: The correct 100v external USB from Wilson is supposed to be available soon. This device does enable us to boost our signal in a fringe area. When the phone is in the cradle, we no longer lose connections. We have consistent 3 bars where we often went from 3 bars to 0 bars (searching for service) before.

I love my Wilson Sleek 4G Working in a rural area I now have great signal . I don't have to go outside to keep from dropping calls and my internet is very fast using my phone as the hot spot. 3G store delivered on time and in perfect condition thanks

This made a HUGE difference in keeping my internet connection in the car. With just an internet card I lose my connection frequently on road trips but I using the booster I kept my connection the entire time and my speed was great increased as well. I am extremely happy with the product and highly recommend it. Thanks!

Every thing is just like they said it would be. It's works wonderfully giving me strong signal out here on my construction site where I have to use my phone as a hot spot. Great!

We had two people in our vehicle with hotspot modems from Millenicom. The one that was put into the Wilson Sleek got better reception in both 3G and 4G areas.
