Good afternoon, thanks for taking time to read my question. I am looking for a new case for my iPhone 4S. I have had the Blade case, probably the most amazing looking case ever, as long as I don't want to use my 4S as a phone, GPS device, or for the internet. Ive been using the E13ctron hybrid for a while now, but its not the greatest for reception either. What I am looking for, is anything similar to those cases, in a plastic version, or other material, that will not affect my reception. I like the bumper style that does not add thickness to the phone, but adds width to it, like the aluminum cases. I have not found any plastic cases that give me the width I desire. I am a machinist, so I like the "machined" style. Screws, parts, etc. I have spent a lot of time looking, and could probably have made one myself in the time I have wasted searching. If anyone can offer suggestions, I would very much appreciate it.

Check out the vapor pro cases made by element. They are made from aircraft aluminum but have a nice thick plastic corner where your antennas are to give the same reception as if you weren't wearing it. I have an orange one and it looks and feels awesome plus I don't loose reception. Think the website is elementcases.com or check eBay. Got mine for $50 when they can go for $130-$150.

Thank you. I saw that one, but was leery because the e13ctron claimed no loss of reception too. Was hoping to find some actual users that could claim the same thing. I will try that one, thanks!
