    with numeric gsm on, how many dB do you drop when gripping bare, and gripping with a case?


    just trying to see what case is best for the issue.

    with case, not holding -74db
    without case not holding -74db
    with case, death grip -74db
    without case, death grip -101db

    and without the case death gripping I gotta hold it tight like choking somebody out and wait, wait and wait some more...then again, I never hold the phone like that, casual left hand holding has no affect on signal for me nor does the "1 finger" on the gap technique.

    I just did it with no case and I dropped from -69 or -84. That seems consistent with what I was seeing last night when I tested it as well, a 15 point drop.
    I'm letting a friend borrow my bumper until he gets his free case, so I can't test it with a case right now.

    The numbers aren't accurate to the dB. The thing just uses a few numbers taken from how many bars there are.
