My friend is a Verizon Wireless customer. He barely had one bar of service inside his house. Verizon sent him a FREE extender. He now gets 5 bars inside house.
I am an XM customer. Prior to the installation of his extender, when I was at his house I got the same intermittent one bar. Now with his extender, I get 5 bars inside his house.
So if you are an XM customer with signal problems inside your house AND you have a friend on Verizon Wireless who is willing to use their credentials for an extender install in your house, it will work. The extender has a MAC address which has to be registered with Verizon hence the need for a Verizon account.
XM says they cannot register an extender and they cannot tell Verizon to do it on behalf of an XM client. Strange.
Thank you for the info, very handy to know as our Verizon extender stopped working after we moved to XM. I'll see if any of our friends will register our existing device for us.
