Thanks Peter. Do you happen to know if it is possible to register a second hand signal box from eBay ?

Hi @bazcad,

 

You wouldn't be able to register a signal box to your account from eBay I'm afraid.

 

They are linked to a customer's account and can only be registered there.

@bazcad,

 

Was there a reason you needed the signal box at home?

 

Do you have fixed home broadband with EE at home too?

Re: Can EE signal box be used with 4GEE home Wi-Fi router

Hi Alex, I have just taken out 2 contract on a 4GEE Wi-Fi router and a pay monthly contract sim only. The router picks up a great signal in my windowsill but my phone signal is virtually non existent inside the house. Any ideas on improving this please?

@bazcad.  Does your device support WiFi calling as you could use that.

Hi Chris, it's a HTC One m8. I'm not sure if it does. If it dies Would I still need to  contact EE to get Wi-Fi calling set up?

@bazcad. Unfortunately that device doesn’t support WiFi calling.

If the router gets a good signal but the phone doesn't, why not just connect the phone to the router over WiFi?

Hi Xrayspecs, my phone doesn't have Wi-Fi calling option. I'm looking into buying a new phone

I'm not talking about WiFi Calling but just connecting over ordinary WiFi. That will cover your data requirements but you'll still need to make calls & texts from the phone but they don't usually require such a strong signal.
