Its a US company, at least according to the site, address in Texas (5010 Wright Road, Suite 100
Stafford, TX, 77477) . So I doubt they are doing anything illegal. Well, at least nothing the orange guy in the White house gives a shit about.
T Mobile only charges for the device and they dont charge a monthly fee. Just saying.
However if the OP is not getting any signal even outside, they will have to use a carrier provided box. Because you cant amplify something that doesn't exist.
can't speak for the OP, but NO ONE uses T-mobile around here and like I already said, the Wifi Calling feature of modern phones has pretty much eliminated the need for BOTH the traditional booster AND those Boosters that connect to the internet, I try to enable any phones that come into our office so they can then use the public wifi SSID so we can finally shut that thing off.

I'm pretty sure recommending such a device is against the terms and conditions of this forum, plus like I said, you are connecting an unauthorised repeater to the network which could get you hefty fines.
how so, it's a legally sold, legally acquired device that can easily be found on Amazon, so how that can be against the terms of this site I don't know, there is NOTHING ILLEGAL going on here otherwise the US company that makes these things would have been shut down.

This seems to give more specifics of legal/illegal use.
DIRECTLY from that page:
" As long as you use an FCC approved signal booster such as Wilson Electronics or weBoost booster, boosting a signal in your home or car will not cause problems to the network. "
like I said ours IS A WILSON, we've had for like 5-10 years now, we didn't even have 4G in the county when we first set that thing up and 4G came into the county while I had my Droid Razr Maxx back in like 2012. the only thing stopping the use of Wilson units per that article is that you need to register them so they can tell you to shut them off if the network is having an issue in your area. they are not inherently illegal.
also from that article:
"At this time, the FCC likely will not pursue enforcement against current or prospective signal booster users unless it involves an instance of unresolved interference. If a wireless licensee or the FCC asks you to turn off your signal booster because it is causing interference to a wireless network, however, you must turn off your booster and leave it off until the interference problem can be resolved."
so per these two quotes, the Wilson units won't cause interference and the FCC won't enforce the requirement to register them since they don't cause interference, you should still register them of course but there is absolutely nothing illegal about using the Wilson units, at least not in the USA, can't speak for your laws in your country.
