Cell Phone Antenna - Tips

Hello Chris,
Man of all knowledge,
I am having a huge problem with my GPRS connection. I am connecting to the internet by using my cell phone as a modem and dialing the Togocel phone tower network. The rooms are concrete, the walls are concrete. I moved from a hotel here in Kpalime, Togo called the Bafana Bafana that was right below the cell tower of Togocel, to the l'Aurore hotel and now the signal is too weak.
I think I am less than 3 kilomoters from the tower, this is not good. This is close, so when I travel to the hills or jungle or really the scragg brush of Togo, I probably will not be able to connect.
Do you know of a way to make a simple Antenna Extension that will work with my cell phone.
I have put the cell phone in the window already, and the Bluetooth has a limited range.
