Wilson Electronics has a potential solution in their iBooster for Apple’s iPhone. It’s pricey at $240 or more, but does it work? I’ll give you a short introduction to the iBooster and then we’ll give it a test or two on the road.

  1. Holy crap – just pay the $175 termination fee and go to Verizon or Sprint. Really, the iPhone is not worth this type of solution for ATT’s crappy service.

    1. Definitely not a product for everyone, but with a 12V adapter in your home, you should be able to use it. An AT&T femtocell unit would likely be better in that scenario though. BTW: you’re not putting this against your ears… that’s what Bluetooth headsets are for. ;)

    Just found this website. I, too, wish you were able to find a one-bar, poor signal area. I live in a very rural location and have tried other amplifier products, which also included an external antenna for the car. They just didn’t work well since the originating signal was so terrible.

    However, the pickup in the driveway has ON-STAR, and it has a solid signal. I was hoping any cell phone I tried with the amp/external antenna, no matter what service, would work, but no go. I’ve tried Cellular One, AT&T, and Verizon branded phones.
