Jaguar Land Rover has been adding the wireless charging pads and boosters for a few years now so this might just be new for me. I noticed when they mention the Phone Signal Booster there’s always a disclaimer.
Usually those disclaimers are boring but this one caught my eye:
PHONE SIGNAL BOOSTER:
The wireless charger mat incorporates a phone signal booster. The phone signal booster is a mobile phone signal enhancer, designed to compensate for reduced reception inside the vehicle’s interior. This phone signal booster operates by selectively boosting signals into and out of the mobile phone via an external antenna. The phone signal booster operates automatically when a phone is placed on the charging mat; there is no need to connect or set up the phone signal booster.
This is a CONSUMER device. BEFORE USE, you MUST REGISTER THIS DEVICE with your wireless provider and have your provider’s consent. Most wireless providers consent to the use of signal boosters. Some providers may not consent to the use of this device on their network. If you are unsure, contact your provider. You MUST operate this device with approved antennas and cables as specified by the manufacturer. Antennas MUST be installed at least 20 cm (8 inches) from any person. You MUST cease operating this device immediately if requested by the FCC or a licensed wireless service provider. WARNING. E911 location information may not be provided or may be inaccurate for calls served by using this device..
You must register the device with your wireless provider? After searching I found my provider actually did have a page to register these devices with them to follow FCC rules.
Is everything doing this?
