Where is the internal Aerial on the Pearl
 
I have a Pearl 8100 unit. I have been given an aluminum cover for it. When you put the unit in the cover the reception or signal strength reduces by at least half. The cover does have cutouts for the camera and side controls etc but I assume that the cover is blocking out reception.

If some one can give me an idea as to roughly where the internal aerial is on the unit I would like to create another cutout to see if this solves the problem.

Regards
Brendon

At the bottom in center as you look at keypad. Where you see carrier branding

Sometimes metal covers can cause signal to go down.

Most metal covers will couse some interference with signal strength, and the rubberized cases offer better absorb the shock of dropping the device.
