I get tremendous cell phone reception everywhere I work except in by own basement where my office is. I can't make or receive calls sitting at my desk. It's quite a hassle to go in the garage evertime I want to talk to somebody. I need to get a booster for my cell phone. I've seen them for around $100. What do you reccomend?

Verizon Wireless and at&t offer cellular repeaters for this application in the $100.00 price range. Regardless of the cell carrier you use, one of these should be fine and I'm pretty sure you can buy them on-line.
