    Man, you guys are brutal! I received this case Saturday (the black one) ...it's got a great feel in the hand, looks really nice on the iphone (please don't kill me, just my opinion) and I've had no probs with signal at home or work/around town. Can someone tell me the field test number for access? I will post field test info & pics here soon.

    Better than a box case from China? I would agrue yes. I'm starting to like the new wood styles as well, made in USA.

    It's not cohesive with the design of the iPhone. it looks more like a guard than a case.

    Thanks RolandNights! Had this case now for a few weeks, and I really like it. People ask me questions about it all the time, most haven't seen anything like it. I have tested my iphone with and without case with the field test
    (*3001#12345#*) at home, and work...both cell reception and wi-fi. Cell reception without case at home is -79db and at work is -85 while reception with case is only slightly deminished: -81db at home and -89db at work.
    Wi-fi/Internet is unaffected, actually faster on the download with the case on? I haven't had any affected phone calls or dropped calls...

    Anyway, love the case...hoping they produce some other color options. :apple:

    I have a feeling OP works for the case company.

    (checks slowmoveturtle's posts)

    Yep. Company stooge.

    I haven't reviewed this one in particular but I did purchase a very similar case and didn't like it at all. The framing around the screen makes it annoying to use. The added bulk of the case is not welcomed and sliding this type of case in and out of pockets becomes cumbersome. I did experience signal loss even though it was minimal. I also found that the phone did not sit snug in the beveled area where it was designed to sit.

    These cases are neat if you like the metallic framing open feel but they are not very user friendly and the added width stinks. The one I reviewed was much thinner on width and was longer in height which made t easier to carrier. This one is wide and bulky.

    Looks nice, but I don't want my phone to be a foot long. One of those form over function cases.

    Reminds me of an IKEA desk for some reason!

    The case adds 5/16" to both overall width and height to my iphone. No footlong like Subway silly!
