I would give this to my sister who lives out at Bethells and gets no Vodafone coverage at her house (no 2g no 3G.. nothing), luckily she already has dsl thru VF.

Holy heck. If this actually works as well as it says it does then I am very VERY keen and in need :(

After switching to Naked Broadband with Yodafone (yes, wrote Jedi as my religion in the census), me and my fiance's iPhones are now our only phone lines.

We live in Arataki in Tauranga (which is what people call it when they pretty much live in Bayfair but don't want to call it Bayfair... like Melville being called Deanwell in Hamilton... yes I did it there too.) and the area is good.

Good people, good lack of noise, good weather... but TERRIBLE signal. Especially in the house... except in the corner of the gara

Now it's gotten to the point where if I get a call on a Sat/Sun morning anytime before 10am - because we all love a sleep in ;) - I have to grab the phone and say "Hang on hang on hang on hang on" as I exit the front door and head for down the driveway to the mailbox for some signal.

I speak for myself (a lil bit), my fiance (probably a lot) and most off all, the residents of my street in Tauranga when I say that it's in the interest of public safety and people's retinas that I get this Sure Signal unit... because it's too hot for anything more than underpants at night right now and who has time to throw a robe on before sprinting down the driveway to take a call?

I know there were extra points for a picture, but that's the last thing you want to see. Seriously... it would be pants... I mean, POINTS off for that one.

I would absolootly love to have a femtocell cos our coverage here in the wunnerful Bay of Plenty is not good. I will just have to resort to my VSAT terminal to get real coverage! So could use my VSAT for broadband and then connect the femtocell to that - trouble is you have to have your broadband on Vodafone! ah me......Foot in mouth

And the winner is... DeroyBoy. The Vodafone Sure Signal is shipped already.

Sorry but we had three false winners. What part of "Sure Signal works only on Vodafone broadband with Vodafone mobile" didn't people understand?

Because it requires both Vodafone broadband and mobile I had to confirm eligibility, and the first three I contacted were not able to use it.
