A novel Fractal planar inverted F antenna (F-PIFA) based on the self affinity design is presented in this paper. The procedure for designing a Fractal Planar Inverted F Antenna is explained and the 2nd iteration of Sierpinski Carpet is chosen to use in mobile phones. The F-PIFA has a total dimension 27mm x 27mm are designed and optimized in order to receive GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) and UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) and HiperLAN (HigH Performance Radio LAN with the frequency range from 1710 MHz to 2170 MHz, 1885 to 2200 MHz for 3G and 4800MHz to 5800MHz for HiperLAN respectively. The antenna achieved the GSM, UMTS and HiperLan frequency with -6dB return loss and has almost omnidirectional radiation pattern. This antenna has been tested using mobile phone model and all the performance met the criteria for a mobile phone application
