Is there any device that can strengthen the Sprint signal?

I average 2-3 bars in my house.

    @julie dickow‌ The only thing I have found in my search is this statement about a possible antenna:
    P.S. remember that antenna connector which is a hole through the back cover? It is a CRC9 connector, however there are many more unused ones inside. So if the one got damaged, you can switch to using other ones.

    I found some antennas with that connector but never tried one, I get by with 2 bars for 4G.

    I maybe wrong but , I do not think their are an antenna jacks on the back . What I have been told is the ports on the back are not antenna posts but testing ports .
    What I have done with my 4082 is I have mounted an old Direct TV satellite on the side of our building 25 feet up & pointed it @ the close's Sprint tower & velcroed my 4082 to the arm pointing back @ the satellite , installed a large ziplock bag over it with a box over that to keep the unit from overheating in direct sunlight . I also ran the USB cable though the wall to keep it charged . I went from barely a bar to a steady 2 bars & some times 3 bars of 3g connection . I know that is not much but @ least I can check E-mails & google chat with it . I hope this helps you .
