    Yes I did ask them about this. The main problem with metal cases (like the early Vapor ones) was that parts of the metal were making contact with the antena which is obviously bad. This is a rubber coating on the inside and no part of the titanium touches the actual phone. Obviously there's still some signal loss, as they said:

    Hi there,

    I am liking the look of these, any feed back as to what they are like and how thick are they, they don't look very thick at all in the pics?

    Thanks
    Paul

    i wouldnt say its feels that bulky in fairness, obviously it needs to have some kind of decent padding on it otherwise it'll never survive any kind of drop

    Hey,mine still haven't arrived.

    They're not thick at all. . .theyre just to protect from scratches on the antenna :) I can't wait to start using a bumper so I can set my phone down lol.

    P.s any chance of this site being compatible with ios5 sometime soon? My iPad keeps crashing when typing a post :(

    just went up to apple and bought the speck candy shell in white for my white iphone. yes it adds bulk but i was using the bumper b4 so anything woukd be bigger compared to that. i have to say it feels solid and comfortable in the hand. maybe if u have small hands this could feel big but its good for me.

    i have also ordered a incipio feather in green from ebay so have a thinner case if needed.

    might as well mention the apple bumpers have been changed for the iphone 4s. the little cut out for the switch has been made bigger to be used with iphone4 and 4s. i just cut mine a little so my old bumper fits perfectly. no way paying another £26 for a bigger hole in the case. lol

    Anyone seen the More-Thing 'Para Blaze' cases?
    They look pretty good to me. I might buy one.

    My mate has one of those for his IP4. It's horrible to use, and looks awful too. But does offer really good protection.

    My lucky labs wrap came today. Basically a small sheet of paper. Hopefully they protect my antenna from scratches with a bumper on. Easy to fit. Perfect fit too :)

    not as bulky and u think. if u compare to a bumper then yes it is bugger but fit in the pocket and feels good to hold. white one looks great on the white iPhone.

    Have you found any UK sellers? The ones on eBay are only in black and I fancy the clear one. Desmay's site doesn't specify if they ship overseas or not. :\

    EDIT: Too late. I've ordered from Desmay's site as this chap didn't have any issues with delivery to the UK: http://forums.thedigitalfix.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?p=9527510

    I got one of these. Ordered Sunday night, delivered Tuesday. Looks good, feels good.
    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Wifey got one of these. Looks good, feels good, she’s happy. Ordered Sunday delivered Monday.
    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    I’m currently watching a unique case that I’ll probably get.

    Also ordered one of these, awaiting delivery
    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Never seen the point in paying loads for a phone case. iPod touch cases, yes, but not phone that is forever being used, touched, put down, picked up etc.

    I received my Knomo slim case yesterday. I'll take some pics of it soon. Got the plain black one and it's very nice! Would recommend if you're looking for a low-bulk slip case; high quality, came 2 days after I ordered, UK company, pay for what you get etc.

    Knomo pics here, taken under ceiling lights and angled to show off the leather as best I could. Think these clickable thumbs will work.

    Speck candyshell Arrived and I love it. It's very sturdy and offers great protection. It is a little bulky but not enough to put me off. Very pleased.
