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:

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?




Thanks!
