    Mine just came in the mail today, and I must say it looks fantastic. Although, there is a minor (major?) issue.

    When the case is on, instead of reducing my signal loss issues, I get lowered reception. I can't even connect to my own Wi-Fi network from another room next to mine. It seems there's a flaw?

    As I recall, they advertised this as a glorified bumper that would solve your deathgrip issues. Here's a quote from their site:

    Guess not.

    I'm not entirely sure what the issue is, but I've emailed ElementCASE about the problem and I'm expecting an email by tomorrow.

    For a $100 case (yes, with the carbon), this problem better be solved.

    ouch

    $20 for a sticker
    $80 for "aircraft aluminum grade" case
    100% reception killer

    definitely avoid

    P.S. I was gonna buy one too for my iPhone 4

    I've had a Vapor for a while now and I gotta say I love it! It is seriously the best bumper in my opinion... I have the red one and it works flawlessly for me.. Sorry to hear about your luck.

    There's a second version which supposedly has no reception issues. If you send your old one back, they'll send you the new one without any additional cost.
    It's a really nice looking case, but I don't think I'll pay $80 once I get my iPhone.
