What does a phone cradle do?
A cradle's job is to connect to an external antenna via the antenna's cable, and retransmit this signal the best it can to your mobile phone. As a cradle doesn't amplify or boost signal artificially, so how well it performs depends on the level of signal that it can receive from the antenna - so it's important to ensure you're using a good quality antenna. "the iPhone 5 cradle is working reasonably well. I got two or three bars at Hope Is. Without the cradle and aerial you get nothing."
