I really didn't want to buy a case; however the constant call failures forced me to buy one or return the iphone 4. I tried the speakeasy naked and it was terrible. I bought the griffin reveal, which I loved; however the calls continued to drop like crazy. Out of desipration, I tried the free rubber case from cases.com that I received a little over a week ago and my call dropping reduced significantly! I can finally say that my iphone 4 makes calls better than my 3g did. Now, the case looks terrible, is much thicker than I'd like and has shown a lot of ware in the 4 days that I have been using it, but at least I can use the iphone as a phone!
