We find that cradling our phones individually is manageable and it allows us to use up our data package on each phone
. Your situation may be different but we move in and out of areas where we need to use the booster so it's not like a phone ever lives in the cradle for days on end. FWIW there is a huge variance in radio
quality between phone manufacturers. Our experience says that BlackBerry, despite their corporate problems have much superior radios. We routinely see locations where my Galaxy needs to be in the cradle to see any signal at all while my wife's BB will have 3 or 4 bars showing unaided.
