Theoretically, the fundamental idea is workable... but like an any other mobile radio, you'll usually want an antenna that's omnidirectional. The bi-quad you've linked to is a uni-directional antenna and if the cosmetics are any indication, I'm not impressed with the build quality. It's also advertized as a Wi-Fi band antenna (WiFi is dominantly in the 2.4 GHz range, whereas cell phone and PCS services fall in the range of 700 MHz to 2.3 GHz).

Finally, very few cell phones provide a means of disconnecting the original antenna... How would you connect an accessory/third party antenna?
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
