    It is common knowledge that carbon fiber over the glass portions of the iPhone 5 back will kill the wifi and bluetooth signals. Carbon fiber isn't radio transparent.

    Two things.

    One.

    If you're going to promote your product, by all means, promote your product. But don't start a new account and stroll on in here and casually say "Hey, has anybody seen these new panels for the iPhone?" as if you're a third party that has stumbled on something interesting. It's your own product. Trying to shill it like that is not cool. Not at all.

    Two.

    Regardless of whether the carbon fiber comes into contact with the metal or not, covering the glass portions of the iPhone5 back with real carbon fiber is known to cause significant signal degradation. It's a well known problem, and I'd advise against it. Not a problem on the iPhone4 as far as I know, but a definite signal killer on the 5.

    (Archrider beat me to it by a few seconds. Quick on the draw man...)
