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.
Awesome info! Thanks a ton! I will look into what ones look the best!

My battery level is still the same, plus all deviced get a bit warm when charging - that is quite normal.

Either way, those things aren't necessarily OS based, more so hardware.

Add me to the list once again 8gb 3g black on T-Mobile.. Btw guys for everyone having problems with battery make sure location services, download sbsettings turn off SSH when not in use(if jailbroken). Turn off Push Notifications and turn off auto adjust and turn down the screen brightness to conserve battery! Good Luck and Enjoy Firmware 3.0 everyone.

So what are the recommendations out there for a good car charger? I am using a DC to AC converter in the car and then my iPhone through its wall charger and for some reason the keys don't work most of the time. is this normal for using a cheap DC to AC converter in a car? It kinda scares me. I am thinking of getting a car charger but not sure which one. Anyone have ideas? Also, Does anyone have an idea on a battery pack or something that you can attach for added battery life. I would like something with a lot of reviews or something you guys have personally tried.

Also: I have noticed that my GPS will not work if I have Wi-fi disabled... ***? I have seen it all over the internet too. Is apple planning to fix this in the 3.1 update? Also I always lose connection forever when switching to or from 3G any ideas?

Thanks!

Are you using a jailbroken tethering app or the one where you mod the normal phone?
