cell signal booster


I have an iphone 5 with Virgin Mobile and no cell signal at my home so I purchased a signal booster -   3g WCPMA 2100MHZ.  Will it work?

Not if there is no cell signal at your home. Zero multiplied 100 times is still zero!  Cell boosters only help in situations where there is a low level signal.

2100 Mhz does not cover most Canadian cell providers. You will need something that does 850/1900 3G and Band 4 LTE assuming that a booster will help you at all. As David points put,100 x zero = zero. Boosters will help if your outdoor signal is at least 1 bar and may give you 2 or 3 bars indoors with proper installation.
