    Has anyone tried the generation 2 cell antenna on their Treo 650? I bought a Palm travel kit & cradle, and included in the box was this freebie. It's a sticker with what looks like cheesy circuit board printed on it that you're supposed to stick to the inside of the phone under the battery.

    The packaging states:

    "It's like having a four foot antenna on your phone."

    "Works on any mobile phone, cordless telephone or pager."

    "Reduces static, improves signal strength & extends cell range while using your cell phone in elevators, tunnels, buildings & remote areas"

    what do you guys think?

    Generally, I've heard it was a gimmick, but it won't hurt anything. If you can, try it in an area where you have a questionable signal and see if it gets better and report back. It would be great to know for sure.

    Don't expect anything though.

    They're entirely bogus. They've been tested countless times for reviews and all cases prove the thing is a peice of junk. If they really worked that well and were that cheap to produce (and they must be for them to be given away as a freebee), then why didn't the cell phone manufactures put them in the phones in the first place?

    The only thing it does do well, is take advantage of the placebo effect.
