antenna booster?

i was just searching for an extended battery for my touch pro and came across something called generation x antenna booster. I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with these to see if they work. I've googled reviews, but haven't come up with much besides sales pitches. I work in the middle of a building and have a hard time getting a good signal in the office usually.

Don't know if it's a sales pitch or outside testing.

Re: antenna booster?

what do you think i could do to get a better signal in my office? is there like a repeater you could plug into the wall that is inexpensive and made for cell phones?

edit: nvm looked at a few and all i seen were models over 300 bucks... too pricy for me.

Re: antenna booster?

Move your desk next to the window hehe..To be honest I dont think there is anything you can plug into the wall that will give you better reception.
