    Hi,

    I just cut out a thin strip of aluminum tape and taped around the iP4 antenna. With the Bumper on, it fit nicely and snugged. The reason I'm doing this to prevent scratching the antenna exterior.

    So, Will the aluminum tape help the signal strength? From my observation, it lower down my signal 1 bar.

    yep I say it would lower it since the problem with your skin and signal loss it's a conductor so is the aluminum tape. Duct tape would have honestly been better. the real fun is going to be taking that tape off good luck!
