Unhappy Metal armor cases reduce reception...

Please Login to Remove!

I bought an aluminum armor case, with clear plastic window in the front, for my Bold. Not saying who manufactured it. Anyway, I just wanted you all to know, that using it at my farm, which has marginal reception anyway, it is way out in the country), knocks out the rest of my signal. I guess the metal blocks the antenna.

I really wanted it for the farm, where lots of things get beat up. As a result, I cannot use this case at the farm. I resorted to using the clear plastic "snap over" cover, inside the leather BlackBerry holster, that I bought.

So if you have marginal coverage, this is something to know. FYI.

Try the Otterbox case. It is a little pricey, but a great insurance policy. I love mine.
