Huawei H258C StraightTalk
StraightTalk & Tracfone Home Phone Connect Antennas & Signal Boosters
The Wal-Mart StraightTalk & Tracfone Home Phone service may use the Huawei H258C (double check the make and model of your device) for connecting to your home phones as well as the cellular service provider. It gives the benefits of a wired landline connection, but it is more convenient and cost-efficient.
Home Phone Connect Device
If you use the Huawei H258C device, boosting the cellular signal to it can mean fewer missed & dropped calls. You can boost the cell signal to your H258C device by attaching an external antenna or amplifier.
How Do I Connect?
The Huawei H258C has an antenna attached to it via an SMA connector. In most cases, the standard antenna works fine. However, in cases where the cell signal is weak, you can boost the signal by adding an antenna. It's best if you mount the antenna outdoors or where the cellular signal is strongest. You can also add an amplifier if the signal is weaker outside.
To connect an outside cellular antenna to the Home Phone Connect, you will need an antenna cable with an SMA Male connector. We offer a couple of antennas, cable and amplifier options.
