    Need some recommendations. I have an Apple bumper, but my black one has slowly fallen apart, and my white one is stained from jeans after a couple of days.

    Looking for something high quality. I bought an e13ctron case but it will not work for me being that my work has really weak signal. I went from 2-3 bar strength to no signal at all with the case.

    Price isnt an issue.

    I planned on doing the same thing, haha. Ordered the back from CNN.cn. Saw that one image here of the same setup and it looked great.

    Awesome...lol. Hey, do you mind posting up when you get everything in and put on the phone? I was going to go ahead and order the back from CNN.cn, but the stories about some of them not fitting the 4S have me concerned and I figured I'd let others try it first (I didn't want to be the guinea pig). :D I just want to make sure those backs they have listed for the 4S do indeed fit. :D

    I decided to order the Hybrid back plate from e13ctron to see if this helps. If its the same issue, I will just use the Apple Bumper til SGP releases the version II of the Neo Hybrid EX for the 4s.

    Will do. A poster on here reference iFixit as the place that said the backplate is ever so slightly different, but a member of their commenting mentioned that his fit no problem, just like the OEM rear plate. He said he just has to shift it downwards a tad.

    I had the Neo Hybrid EX II for the 4 and it was junk

    Thought I would like it, but wasn't too thrilled with the cheap silicon then plastic wrap. Def a pain to put on too.

    Returned it after a few days. I did however keep the front and back screen shields included :D

    Also, SGP has NO plans of selling extra plastic pieces like they did for the original ($9.99 each) DUMB
