My Status Indicator is Solid blue but my phone still has poor signal
If your Cel-Fi PRIME Signal Booster has a solid Status Indicator with a blue light, the system is fully functional.
If your system has a solid blue status light but your phone is not picking up a stronger cellular signal you might need to check the power cable connections and your phones compatibility with the selected network.
