How to boost signal at home?
This is somewhat of a pointless question now as I have managed to tear apart my phone. I wanted to check the antenna, and followed a guide which failed to mention that the dock connector tab sometimes sticks to the front panel, so immediately tore the cable and then broke another cable connector near the top. (I later read a different guide that warned against this, wish it had been the first one I came across).
Anyhow, my house seems to be in some sort of a zone. Not sure if it's a dead zone or just too much interference. My phone has never seemed to have very good reception, but I have friends with other phones on different carriers that seem to have a similar issue.
I also have the strange problem of picking up some sort of radio signal (traffic police?) that comes through clearly on one of my cable channels and on the channel next down comes as static and takes out the picture.
I've asked various cell providers and the police, but no one seems to know why I'm having these issues.
I'd rather not have to purchase an expensive cell phone signal booster. Does anyone know of a good guide to making one that works wirelessly, where I don't have to plug in directly to the antenna on the phone? And any ideas as to why I'm picking up radio signals through my television?
