    Just thought I'd pass along that I picked up an Incipio Silicrylic case for my iPhone 4.

    Now, in an area where I could get my signal to drop from 5 to 0 by covering the antenna with no case stays at 5 nicely (occasional dip to 4 briefly) with the case. Even with my hand tightly around the bottom right corner.

    It seem like it has pretty good drop protection too FWIW.

    Hope this helps some folks...

    I've got the case as well and I really like it - makes me feel a bit more safer with the phone.

    Here are a few very poor quality pictures ( taken from my laptop's crappy webcam ) to give you an idea...

    I also bought that same exact case and it pretty much eliminates the antenna problem.

    Did you install a full body skin guard on it?

    I'm wondering if it'll be a really tight fit or even fit properly with that on. I'm still waiting for my skin guard in the mail.

    Thanks.

    I didn't - I only put on the case with the hard back. I have been considering getting a screen protector for the front, but am not yet sure...

    Yeah, I have the skin guard. I like it. It makes it a snug fit and makes it feel safer too.

    Where did you buy this case? It shows as not avail for purchase on the company website and Amazon doesn't seem to have it either.

    I saw 6 of these at ATT last night. I liked the Yellow version. But decided on the Candyshell since I've had experience with them. Looked cool.

    These incipio and candyshell cases look a lot like Otterbox cases. I wonder if I'm wasting my time waiting for a Otterbox case to launch ....

    You may be waiting a good while for Otterbox.

    Yah, I'm not really that good w/ waiting.

    Plus, if I'm waiting and this phone takes a dive - I'm going to be really pissed. I have a bumper on it now, but in retrospect I think I wasted like 30 bucks as its not particularly raised - very minimal.

    unfortunately I just returned this case. I bought the white one and it interfered with the flash, washing out the pictures. I dont know if this happens with the other colors
