LG-VX6100 extendable/retractable antenna

I just switched from Cingular to Verizon and have had my phones for about a week. I have had good service from them so far. My only complaint is that I broke my belt clip holder that came with it. The round part where it swivels cracked. Now it swivels very loosely and falls off if I catch it on something. Other than that they seem pretty good.
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with those aftermarket extendable/retractable antennas that supposedly boost your signal strength. You see, I live in the boonies where alot of the time you are running on one bar of signal. Surprisingly enough I can make and recieve calls when the signal dips that low. I'm might also be looking for some kind of outside antenna, like a car roof antenna or one for the house. I'm trying to see what kind of signal boosters I can get because I'm moving from a town that has full strength signal, to one that has nearly none 10 miles down the road. Any help would be appreciated.
