I saw one at best buy, its a sticky thing that you put behind the battery of the phone and it supposedly helps you get a better signal. I was wondering because i live in an apartment on the bottom floor and i'm getting really bad reception in here with my new cell phone.

best advice would be to ask the people at best buy/a cellphone & tech store or call the phone company (desperate attempt)...more than likely they'll give u an honest answer.

however my intuition says NO, ARE YOU KIDDING THAT'S PROBABLY THE BIGGEST RIP OFF IN THE WORLD...If you are going to get one make sure someone else pays for it.

I bought one like an idiot. Waste of $.

I have never been able to figure out how it is supposed to work. It's just a sticker with pretty gold foil on it. Antennas just don't work that way.....if they did we wouldn't have so many phones with antennas sticking out of them.

I agree with Magoo. If you really aren't sure, check around, but I really doubt they work.

Oh Magoo, you've done it again!

Sorry. I couldn't help it.
