Had mi fi for Internet , Samsung Intensity || and Motorola all worked with Wilson Antenna signal booster.
Samsung current signal is 2 bars now boosted to 4 with Wilson antenna .
Motorola phone recent upgrade to iphone 6 .
Verizon salesperson suggested drop mifi and use iphone hotspot to connect to Internet .
We explained we're in an RV and sometimes in poor signal area . We raised concerns about poor signal on iphone working with Wilson booster for calls and hotspot use ...he assured us it would work.
After upgrade and use , Hotspot link not recognized as "wi fi" therefore unable to back up to icloud .. Message pop up says need wi fi connection
1. Will iphone work with Wilson signal booster
if so what connections are needed?
If not, is there a product to boost the iphone
2. How can I back up to iCloud using hotspot?
3. My ipad and iphone are no longer linked, entry
on one is not uodated on the other ...
So tempted to take all back and have mi fi
reconnected. Any help appreciated ..
Thanks in advance
Pondhopper2 we are here to help. You have come to the right place. As far as the Wilson signal booster that you mentioned, you may want to check with the manufacturer to see if it will work with the iPhone. I do apologize, we would not have that information. We do offer our own Network Extender. Here is a link with more information regarding our extender: http://vz.to/1R0Vgn3 When you are referring to backing up to iCloud, are you tring to back up to iCloud with the iPhone or the iPad?

Thanks for speedy reply ..
According to the details in your link , the extender is plugged into the high speed internet connection in the home. .
We are in an RV.. Our internet was a mi -fi but now is the hotspot on the iphone .
Can the extender be connected to the iphone?
iCloud back up issues -
I'm individually trying to back up the ipad and iphone.
iphone is setup as hotspot with ipad linked to hotspot. In this configuration back up of ipad fails.
Pop up message says needs wifi connection to back up .
Just as a comment my new Verizon iphone has 1 bar.
My English iphone sat alongside it has automatically selected a carrier other than Verizon and has 3 bars .
Thanks again for any help
