Default cell phone reception booster?

First...I know squat about cell phones as I don't have one...'-}}

The condos in my complex get really lousy cell phone reception. I've always attributed it to the fact when they built the complex, rather than using wood studs for wallboard support, they used metal.

The other day, my sister's landline went out and I was in her place when it happened. She tried using her cell phone (an iPhone--not the latest model) and couldn't get a signal so we went to my place and she used my landline phone to call the phone company.

This got me to wondering if there is something she could buy to boost the signal for her cell phone in her apartment. Do they make something like that and what would I search for online?
