cell phone signal booster

I just got a new phone - blackberry with AT&T service. I cant get a signal in our house. Does anyone have a signal booster or repeater that works?

Although I have no personal experience with them, I hear good things from the RV crowd about Wilson Electronics. Looks like they have several options.

I used a Wilson repeater for a remote installation at work (before retirement!). It worked great. The unit we used wasn't cheap at about $600, but the problem was solved.

BTW, lousy ATT coverage in my area is the reason I don't own an iPhone.

I think the Wilson is the way to go, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on improving my signal - that's what I pay AT&T for.

My friends with iphones have the same problem
