I recently bought a cell phone booster, a Wilson Sleek, and used it in a rural area,usually a death zone for AT&T. To my surprise, my Veer went from no service to 3-4 bars of Edge! I also picked up HSPA+ about 8 miles further out from Sioux City, IA. All on highway 77, not known for good signal. My point? You live in a crap area? Spend 89.99 on the Sleek. Found it through Quantum, an Amazon store. Can get a home kit as well, or buy a 110 with a car input. Makes AT&T viable for me!
