    Anyone tried Sellotape or similar thick but clear tape? Or how about some kind of clear liquid sealant that sets to a hard glaze?

    Check out GelaSkins.com

    Supposedly these will partially, if not mostly, alleviate the signal loss. And you can submit custom designs too.

    Nor am I affiliated with anyone, but myself... unfortunately :(

    I guess that doesn't go without saying anymore these days, kids.

    This is interesting. Sounds like supporting a good cause either way. Has anyone ordered one of these?

    i put zagg invisible shield across the spot and i no longer have data drop when touching it and it only drops one bar. so it seems to have fixed the problem.

    Having zero issues with my phone\reception here. Can't even get bars to drop in a "death grip", so I've stopped trying, LOL.

    For someone that is though, I wonder how something like clear nail polish, just enough with a small brush to cover the antennae, would help? Either that, or clear liquid silicone applied in the same manner?
