    Hello...

    Just wondering if the signal is affected if the iphone its inside an Otterbox case.

    What about other cases too...

    I have a commuter which isnt massive but when I tested it I did ten checks once a minute with the case on and the same off. It averaged to be about 4 dbm worse with the case on which is nothing significant.

    I have conducted a small test with my otterbox, on my 4S when i would apply pressure on the sim card area and place a call, my service would be dropped, this seems to happen much more frequently with my otterbox commuter case on, this is on AT&T
