    I'm sure you've all heard of those little self-adhesive signal booster that are supposed to boost your phone's reception. They go underneath the battery of your cell phone.

    But my question to you all is...has anyone actually bought one? Does it really work? Is it worth it? How effective can these little innovations be? Thanks!

    Yes sir...especially in my house. How does zero bars or maybe one sound when tryin' to make a call? Any ideas that will actually help "boost" my signal? I have a Samsung e335 under T-Mobile

    If your phone has a conection for a external antanna you can try that, Cell phones do not do well in houses because of all the metal and wiring in the house, how long have you had the phone, if not long you might be able to return it and try a different model , I have found that Motorola and nokia phones seem to be a little better in the reception area.

    Hm...actually my phone has an internal antenna. It's funny that you ask how long I've had my phone cuz I just got it yesterday.

    Well, I'm not sure if it's the phone or not, cuz my brother used to have a motorolla and we had the same problem. He either couldn't call people, or they would cut in and out. I think maybe it's just my house.

    the name cell phones had in the begining was "Mobil phone, not being scartastic but they were really not made for the home they were for the outside, you might want to ask your carrier or the store where you got the phone what phone in your area does better, it also is determained by the distance from the tower, you might have better luck standing by a window that faces the direction that your nearest tower is. sorry i know it can be frustrating

    Those 'signal boost' stickers are so useless that they are often given away as a freebee now when you buy something else for your phone.
