    I need a signal booster for my iphone 5 because in my dorm room I have terrible signal. I was looking for a booster/antenna and can't find anything for the iPhone 5. Also being that I'm in college I don't have hundreds of dollars to spend. Thank you!

    The iPhone 5 doesn't have an external antenna plug. If you see something claiming to extend your atena's range that's not a plug-in repeater it's a scam.

    The only other solution is to get a AT&T Micro Cell for $100 (they lose money on every one so it's a good deal), which is a minature cell tower you connect to your home internet. Or you could get a pricey cellular signal repeater, which would run $300.

    If everyone else is getting a good signal consider switching carriers, and you could report the poor signal to AT&T - they might fix the issue in a few weeks.

    There's no cheap solution.

    You won't find a reputable amp or repeater without spending hundreds.
