    Looks good, but I am afraid of aluminum bumpers due to signal degradation.

    I also have to wonder how you get that one on the phone since I don't see any screws or anything.

    Oops I didn't realize that this was another metal bumper. Probably going to hold off on getting it. I've never had a single good experience with metal bumpers.

    Yeah, I mean I figured out that it was a metal bumper when it said it was an aluminum bumper on their webpage and in the title on Amazon. :p

    But I think we'll have to see how it degrades the signal. I used an Element Case Vapor Pro on my 4S and had no signal issues. It also looks like this one is lined with a TPU material so the aluminum doesn't come into contact with the metal band. I also wonder though how you put it on... :confused:

    i got this one off of amazon for $10. It is really nice and reminds me of my apple bumper on my 4s.

    There are some people in the reviews that say the lightning cable doesn't fit but I do not have that problem.

    I bought it for a temporary solution but like it so much it may be my permanent solution.

    Poetic Illuminate?

    Hello,

    I'm kind of confused about the Poetic Illuminate:

    This guy says he loves the case and has had zero issues with reception and so.

    But on Amazon there is a review that says there ARE reception issues.

    Anybody got an idea about this?
