Default Passive repeater for UK use with Pearl 8100

Please Login to Remove!

Here in the UK, active (powered) cellphone repeaters are illegal for use by members of the general public in the same breath as are jammers:

Mobile phone jammers and cellular enhancers | Ofcom

Having therefore ruled out the preferred solution to my crappy (zero to one bar) GPRS reception at home (inside and outside the building, so it's not just a Faraday cage problem), it looks like I'm stuck with a passive repeater.

Please can members of this forum recommend a device on sale in the UK for use with Pearl 8100. I ask the question as the Pearl has no obvious external antenna connection means.

Many thanks.
