If you're still having the problem, I'd suggest some trouble shooting. It sounds like your phone isn't getting a strong signal. Even if you're in a good location (near a cell tower) you might have things interfering with the signals. This could range from buildings, trees, or electronic devices nearby weakening or even blocking the signal. Keep in mind that cell phone problems can be counterintuitive. You might be in an area you think is great for signals (downtown as opposed to out in the country), but you could have many things affecting your signal.
You need to do a signal test and make sure what your actual signal is. I've had people ask about this in other forums. Do you have a poor signal wherever you go or just at one location? If it happens everywhere you go, it's the phone. If it's in one area, it's likely interference from something nearby such as terrain or your home's building materials. Here is a helpful blog on what causes problems.
A signal booster can be a great thing but like any technology, it needs to be used correctly and under the right circumstances. For example, a signal booster can't create a signal so if you are in an area with no signal, the booster doesn't do anything. Just think of multiplying something by zero. 2000 x 0= 0. So a 2000X booster won't boost a nonexistent signal. If you have a signal, you need to situate the booster so it works at maximum effectiveness. This blog has some good tips. Keep in mind there are other things besides boosters but every situation and solution depends on your situation.
