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 the signal to 'jump' from the pad to the phone's internal antenna

  • In order for this to work effectively, the pad must be placed directly above the phone's internal antenna - this can be easily found by trying it in a few different positions on the back of the phone

  • An external antenna increase in signal will result in faster mobile internet access, much longer usable range from a cell tower, improvd voice quality and reduced call dropouts

  • 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.
