I have a friend who bought a repeater to alleviate the poor coverage for his
Verizon BlackBerry in his home north of Hillsborough . At his house we were
previously lucky to get one bar of signal, but with the repeater installed
our phones got five bars and never had trouble placing calls, texts, and
emails again.

The installation was pretty easy, as I remember. Just plug in the power and
place it near a window so it can get as much signal as possible.
