Time Capsule - Extreme Extender?

Got a 1TB time machine connected to my old modem. Bought my first Mac 10 months ago and love it. Problem is we've just had an extension and my iphone won't pick up the wireless signal in the new part of the house. I've asked for an airport extreme for Xmas in the hope it will extend the network for my phone etc. Have I done the right thing?

    Yes it will extend the Time Capsule's wireless network.

    Do the following now, so that you don't forget: open AirPort Utility for your Time Capsule, use Manual Setup, go to the AirPort>Wireless panel, check the box "Allow this network to be extended" and then Update.
