| | Here is what I did to get a signal at home...
I purchased a Wilson amplifier and stealth antenna for about $175 as well as a Yagi antenna for another $60. The amp and stealth antenna are mounted inside the house and the Yagi is outisde. I used a signal strength meter to aim the Yagi and that was it. I now have a full signal throughout the house. You can even use multiple phones at the same time. It's like having your own cell tower.
I have attached images of the set-up for you to see what is required.
