    Why does aluminum affect signals on phone accessories?
    Does same apply to silver, copper, nickel? Please substantiate...need to know in 24 hours or yesterday!
    Thank you! EM

    im not sure but i think any metal around the iphone will block signal, are you buying a element case on ebay or something.

    Yes they will affect signal. It depends on how well your coverage is in your area that makes it make or break. I bought a cheaper vapor knock off and it dropped my bar by 1. Still have 4, All good. No GPS signal problems also. Just my experience. I got mine off ebay from this seller, was quick. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270711484169
