    Hello as it turns out I happen to use my Blackberry service as my mobile and home internet connection. Videos stream just fine but I like to play online games , and its a bit to slow dew to signal loss indoors. So I was wondering if there is any good ("cheap" as I'm very.) way of boosting the signal. Do any of the antennas advertised without repeaters work?

    Welcome to CrackBerry.

    There a no end of scam/ripoff artists offering cell phone antennas. I would not waste money on snake oil.

    What you need is a signal amp. It will boost your signal strength a couple bars.

    Check the CrackBerry store for their selection.

    Stoner, did you actually make the antenna? If so, how did you connect it to the Berry?

    Lol, Do I look like MacGyver?

    I found the video clip with Google. The cell phone they were using has an external antenna port. No such beast in the the BlackBerry.
