Aluminum case that DOESN'T affect reception?
I tried searching, but couldn't find any straight answers. I'm really digging the aluminum cases that screw in around for the iPhone 4, but I was wondering if there were any that DON'T interfere with the signal. And maybe that don't cost $150.
I have a Verizon iPhone too, if that makes a difference with the buttons. I see some that have the open cut out for the buttons, and others that don't.

I've been using the atomic hybrid case for several months now (atomiciphonecase.com) - its not strictly aluminum however - one side is aluminum, the rest is a composite material that does have a plastic-like feel to it (its actually delrin/graphite) - but it does give the look you're going for with no impact to reception at all. They also have a diamondback case which is full coverage, but right now they only have an all aluminum version and in terms of signal strength, it frags it pretty badly.
From what I understand, e13ctron is also coming out with a hybrid case in the near future: I had one of their all aluminum cases and there was only slight impact on reception (others have reported larger impact I believe).

Anyone know of aluminum cases similar in style to the EXOvault series, but that don't cause reception issues?
I love the looks of those cases, and the craftmanship is there, but the reception issues make them impractical for me.
