sellling this?

I have looked around the sites that sell these and can find no reason not to be able to sell one of these:http://nextivityinc.com/
I have been using for a while but dont need it anymore. edited to add, i bought it used and it needs no contract etc and is ok for any network.

If it does anything bar receive a mobile signal then it is not allowed AFAIK, signal boosters are subject to operator licensing.

After reading a bit more it looks like these are repeaters which are only licensed for use and distribution by network operators in Ireland

It receives the signal in the area the phone is in as far as i know. I dont have a clue about this really, only cant find any sites that say resale is prohibited. Its not licensed by and particular operator tho.
Its called a Cel Fi celllar indoor coverage solution if that helps.

Foggy is correct here; those particular devices require a licence, which can only be obtained by the various network operators - it's one of those items that fall into the "not illegal to own but are illegal to sell" category

This is correct; Hutchinson/3 have a licence to distribute these items

It would actually, if it wasn't people could give away alcohol, or medicines for free too. It's just one of the items we don't allow on Adverts, free or not
