ClearBoost - iPhone antenna case
Most of the so-called antennas for cell phones are just gimmicks and not worth the money, but we've finally found one that works. The Griffin case conceals a built-in booster antenna that captures more of the available wireless signal and sends it to the internal antenna of your iPhone. This should result in a better signal, especially in drop-out areas — which translates to fewer dropped calls, wider coverage areas, and faster downloads when browsing.
I gave it to a friend of mine to test, who seems to know ALL the drop-out areas in LA and he put it through its paces. His report: "Seemed to get better signal strength in known areas where I would get completely knocked off or very low signal." He was pleased with it but had one complaint - that the little "antenna stub" made it difficult at times to retrieve the iPhone from his pocket.
