    I have been reading all over the web and can't seem to find a straight answer.
    Some say sec gen iphone is better, and some say 1st gen is better, but what I really don't understand Is to make a wifi booster from the web, Is made out of metal? :confused:

    This Is only about wifi, not 2g, or 3g signal.

    I believe they are the same. Did not notice a difference when I got my 3g.

    They will be the same because the WiFi antenna is behind the plastic on the first generation, just like the second is covered in plastic.
