Is it true that all metal cases kill the signal?
sorry I just joined this forum and don't know too much..
The antennae of the iPhone is the metal band. When you cover than up with metal, you are degrading the signal. Some metal cases now have a section of plastic, but you will still get signal loss. If you live in a strong signal area, it may not bother you though as much as it would if you are on a fringe-1-3 bar area.

just wondering because you said you've tried a few aluminum cases. have you also tried the atomic hybrid? was that also a no go for you? it seems like that case would work because like 75% of it is derlin.
