Where can I buy a signal booster or amplifier or whatever that can increase the signal on a vodafone 3G phone. I get quite crappy 3G signal on vodafone here indoor, but it's ok outdoor. I want to get a phone to work on vodafone, but the lack of signal makes me hesitate. My iPhone works like crap on vodafone network. Can't even make a call or use data properly on 3G. I want capacitive screen and iPhone is the only one that can work perfectly on XT. XT doesn't support any other capacitive phones. That damn vodafone doesn't improve any signal strength here. I want a milestone but I know it won't work on vodafone 3G properly.
I have no choice but to look for a cheap signal booster or amplifier. Or a mifi that can support 850mhz, but don't know where to get that mifi 2372. Maybe I will just consider buying a mifi instead.

Do you get reception outdoors? I'm thinking maybe an external aerial setup.. probably not ideal but i don't think you'll have much luck with a booster

There is nothing you do (legally) at present.

Vodafone are apparently launching some signal booters in NZ, I have to idea of their current status.

I'm a little confused why you mention XT - if you want better coverage than a move to XT may not be a bad move on an iPhone since it will give you nationwide 3G coverage.

If you get a booster/amp you will be breaking the law.
