Does anyone have this case and experienced any 3G and Wifi reception issues? I read it was a problem on iPhone 4, I wonder if its still a problem when using this case on 4s.

 

Much appreciate any info.

 

Thanks!


iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1

The iPhone 4S has relocated antennas on the top and bottom of the device, where users don't normally grip the device. I would encourage you to try it out if there's a return policy, otherwise, seek elsewhere (based on user input)

    I had this case for my iPhone 4 and have experienced quite a few cellular issues.

     

    I returned it and got an Otterbox  @ Otterbox.com/iphone

    Thanks for the reply but I am interested in how the iPhone 4s works with the Vapor 4 case, since it has the anthena issue fixed. I really don't like the Otterbox cases, I might save up and invest in a Vapor Pro which has the reception issues fixed with slight redesign.

    I had one of the open aluminum bumper frames that was secured in the corners with allen screw. I instantly lost cell reception. I have since swapped it out for an otterbox. Its not as sexy but its virtually bomb proof

    Thanks, was that on iPhone 4 or 4s? This is my 4th iPhone and I never dropped one, so I'm not concerned about protecting it from dropping, but rather from scratching screen when puting it down, and something like Vapor or Blade bumper case.

    I had this case and had to return it.  It literally took me from 5 bars to 1.  I now have an inCase Slider.  Love it.

    Thanks, that helps a bit. I think most of the replies above are based on 4 not 4s, or maybe they work for otterbox

     

    I'll keep searching for feedback from 4s users before I make my decision.
