    You get free Wi-Fi at McDonald's while inside the restaurant. They will not kick you out of the establishment as long as you're actively consuming food you purchased there.

    Beyond that, you need to continue using Wi-Fi when you arrive at home, or use your cellular data.

    I don't know of any wifi reception booster usable in a car. Why not just go in, grab a cup of coffee, and sit a spell?

    mc donalds was just a damn example, other places i would like to pick up on free wifi. and it dosnt need to be limited to a vehicle. If im at the park, and just need a few extra feet of signal strength. I'm looking into using my iphone without att service. and just using magic jack or google voice. And parking on their sidewalk was a joke!

    My parents taught me that you get what you pay for. Pay $0.00 and what you get is nothing. As Ledsteplin said, go in, buy something and sit a spell and get all the free WiFi you want. And I'm not telling you what to do any more than Rafagon was, just explaining a fact of life.

    There is the possibility of secretly installing a Wi-Fi booster in the restaurant. You'll need to plan a covert operation, the execution of which may be facilitated by an Inside Man. Approach one of the more shady-looking employees and ask if he is willing to do it for you for $20 - $30.

    It'll pay for itself after a few months of not having to pay AT&T.

    Not sure why you need to be so hostile towards people offering suggestions. But to answer you question I don't believe there is a device to boost your reception strength on the phone end. It can be done on the front end of the wifi but a lot of places limit their range to there building or property just to limit it to their customers as well as any liability.

    Rafagon made a valid suggestion. Why all the hostility?

    Agreed. Businesses encourage patronage, which means entering the establishment.

    These are usually crap, though. I tried a couple on my phones in the pre-smartphone days and it didn't increase range one whit.
