    Got my Carbon bumper sides and front. Really happy with it. Fits and cutout really well.

    The carbon part looks really good, but they really shouldn't call it a "Bumper". It appears to be just a skin. It may protect from scratches and such, but it most likely won't protect to the level of the Apple "Bumper".

    Just my $0.02

    Looks good. I've tried some cheap vinyl wraps and none of them helped with the antenna issue (confirmed using the Signal app on my jailbroken phone).

    Does the carbon wrap help or do you still lose signal?

    Well, yeah. Its just for scratches and aesthetics. I don't think they claim it is a substitute for Apple's bumper. They don't seem like some large company, just some regular joes.

    @alee I have no signal issues.I put it on as soon as I got my phone so I can't confirm if it helped or not. I am in a low signal area 1-3 bars and so far I have no other issues but the proximity sensor. Week 30 build.

    That thing is on there crooked. In the first pic, you gradually see a wider area of the back of the iPhone as you make your way down on the left side.

    It's the same 3M Di-Noc that can be had on ebay for less than $20

    I'm looking at it thinking there would be flash issues for sure. Ts can tell me if I wrong.
