no signal booster will do any help. unless you spend a lot of money and even then.

was it always like this? pearl signal should be really good.
what version of OS are you running (go to options>about)
probably will be something like 4.2.x.x

Sounds like you need a new carrier, choose one that has the coverage you need for where you live work and travel often.
