WiFi is the only way you'll get reception indoors UNLESS, you have a repeater near you or you can point an antenna out a window at the exact right spot orientation (depends on your geographic location).

As shortspark pointed out, it's all about where you live. At the University I work at, I get reception pretty much everywhere inside. If you're in a major city, there's a chance you'll get good indoor reception.

None of the above. It's shortspark - one word. Now, if you can figure out what that means, let me know.

There is another option, which will hopefully be available soon and that would be to use a home dock with home antenna, though you may need to get the antenna outside if that is possible.

Wifi can only be used if the SSID is being broadcast, that offer 802.11b with WEP or WPA1/2 security. Anything else and the Stiletto will not work.

I am able to get sat. reception inside if I stay near a window or exterior wall. Based upon other posts I think this is variable based upon where you are and current satelite position.
