Works GREAT! – GSM Signal Booster Antenna + Holder for 3G Mobile Phones (1970~2170MHz) Reviews

Pros:
when phone doesn't have signal, this seems to extend the antenna, outside the car in this case.
Cons:
Kindly cheaply made, all plastic. Seems you can only use it placed directly in the cradle, not a problem if your using a bluetooth headset or something.
Other:
I tried blocking the iphone's signal with a piece of aluminum foil, getting me 0 bars, then I put it in the cradle, with the antenna high up in the room, I then put the aluminum foil completely around the phone in the cradle. And got 4 bars. So if there is a stronger signal through the cradle, it seems like the phone will know to go through it.
Bottomline:
Works good. looking around, if I really want to boost the signal, say 20+ miles from a cell tower, I need to get a electronic signal booster, something powered, but this works fine for my need.
