I hear it might not work with jailbreaking, but if it is a legit and good GPS program, I might do that

Okay, I will give that a try, thanks!

Sorry for the double post, but a lot of people might have this question, so I will keep it separate:

Does anyone have a case that works awesome? I am looking for a nice slick looking one in either a dark blue or black or combo, or just something that looks nice. I am looking for something smooth, rather than something rubbery that will stick to my pocket. I have an iFrogz blue one now, and it just doesn't hold together like I wish it could. Also, my iPhone gets a little toasty at times, is there something out there that can keep it cooler?

I've got the black 32 gig 3GS, on AT&T, and I love it.

I've been having one issue with, it though. I'm having the random disconnection problem, where it will drop both the 3G signal as well as the regular E service service signal (full bars to no bars in a split second).

The fix I've found to work is cycling the phone into airplane mode and off, which seems to reset the signal, but that is obviously inconvenient.

I originally thought it was being caused by interference from my Incase Power Slider (an awesome case, btw, although its expensive and does reduce reception a little bit [about 1 bar reduction for me on average]). But it also does it when I have it uncased.

I'm stumped.

And at Bigal1542... I found a great case which is working awesome for me. It's the Switcheasy Rebel http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw...+Rebel&x=0&y=0. I have the black Rebel Serpent, which is the exact same as a regular Rebel but it has a textured skeleton. As I said, they are great, well-made and well-fitting cases which offer very solid protection. I recommend

Thanks for the help with cases! I am leaning towards the Rebel. A few questions though. Does it interfere with connection? How about temperature? And is it plastic or rubber-like? And how easy can the case come off on accident? Are the buttons covered by the case too?

ok i have an otterbox defender. and i have NO signal loss. i basically wrote down everything i did on my iPhone for like 3 hours with the case on and followed the list again with the case off. there was no signal loss at all. its slightly bulky, but im an electrician, so i need FULL coverage. it covers the phone with hard plactic, then over that with rubber. and full screen plastic also. GREAT case, im getting my wife the pink one. heat is there when in full use but it goes away as fast as it would without the case.

As far as cases go, I got these and they're great! Can't beat em for 6 bucks each.





They don't add any bulk, but are strong enough to protect the phone from a drop.

They have tons of colors to choose from.

I've been using the rebel for about three weeks now. To answer your questions:

-No interference with connections at all; when I have five bars uncased I have five bars cased. I suppose that there might be a small reduction in the speed just because there are a few millimeters of extra material between the transmitter and receiver, but nothing noticabel.

-No problems with temperature so far. I will tell you that I am pretty careful with where I leave my phone though (no prolonged direct sunlight, no leaving it on in a car with the windows rolled up). But in terms of regular, everyday use, I haven't had any problems with the case raising the temp.

-The case is made of two parts. The first is a plasticized rubber material which wraps around the phone, covering the entire back and sides to the bezel (it does hide the bezel completely). It is a little textured to the touch; not sticky-ish like silicone but not as hard or smooth plastic; this layer can bend and is pretty pliable, and fits the phone snugly. The case covers up the on-off button by placing an artificial surface over it (so you can still access on-off without taking the cover off). There's a good amount of room around the audio input jack... no problems there. The left side of the case has a larger opening for the volume controls and the vibrate thingy, because the two controls don't have seperate openings (there's just one larger opening for both), but it fits well and I don't see it as a drawback. The bottom opening for the input and the speakers also fits snugly, and you can (obviously) charge with the case on.

-The case isn't going to come off by accident. The second part of the case, fitting over the under-layer, is a hard plastic "skeleton." This is keeps the case very rigid and locked onto the phone. It was a little hard to get on at first, because I am using an InvisibleShield skin underneath the case for the sake of longevity, but now that I've figured it out it only takes a couple seconds to pop the skeleton off and stretch the under layer off. In all honesty, the under layer could probably stay on by itself, but the rigidity and feel of protection the over layer offers is awesome.

All in all, this is the best case I've come across for the Iphone... I liked the Incase Slider too because it didn't take away from the phone's looks, but the protection didn't seem to be there (I'm pretty sure that if you dropped you phone, the Slider would do absolutely nothing). With the Rebel, I actually have some confidence that if my phone slips out of my pocket or something it won't take any damage, which is a nice feeling.
