How does this work?


Despite not having an external antenna port, this phone can be connected to an external antenna by using a passive patch lead. This type of patch lead has a pad containing a specially designed coil of wire and uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to enable signal to 'jump' from the pad to the phones internal antenna. In order for this to work effectively the pad must be placed directly above the phone's internal antenna, this can be found easily enough by trying it in a few different positions on the back of the phone.

An external antenna increase in signal which results in faster mobile internet access, much longer usable range from a cell tower, improves voice quality and reduces call dropouts. Please see our guide to passive connectors. For best results we always recommend using a fitted cradle.

What does a patch lead do?


Most antenna cables terminate with a standard connection, most commonly a female 'FME' connector. To plug an antenna into your phone or wireless modem, you need a short cable that acts as a conversion from the FME connector to the device-specific connector that will plug into the antenna port on your device.
