    Quick question people say the new back cant be all metal as it would block the cell signal.Wouldn;t it be possible to make the entire metal back an antennae?

    Yes I suppose they could , the thing is no one has any idea of what it's going to look like or what material it going to be made of. Just lots of guesses and thoughts.

    It would not be ideal, and there would have to be seams. 2.4GHz wifi/bluetooth, 1.8-1.9ghz cell, 800-900mhz cell all would have different wavelengths, thus different optimized antenna lengths and shapes.

    Yeah I forgot about the seems this wasn't really a debate on what the new iPhone is going to be made out of more about antennae engineering if anything
