    I've done a couple of these housings and each time they have made a very noticeable loss in signal strength. Especially while indoors.

    I really like the red housing! I should be doing a full white conversion (Housing, bezel, screen) on my 3GS this weekend if I get all the parts in. I can't wait to get started on that.

    The housing comes plated.. It costs 8 bux what do you expect lol

    Well it has a very light gold finish over the bezel therefore cannot reduce the signal more that any case would.. Antenna on it is full strength and never dropped a call on me.. I'm on t mobile

What I'm saying in the replacement plastics I buy look slightly less than authentic and I am wondering if you've found a good dealer for em?
    Well I early do black or white iPhones so the buyers know a red iPhone back isn't "authentic"

    However the easiest back housing to install are the black and white ones.. They go for 3-4 bucks on eBay .. The metallic gold bezel costs 6$ on eBay also.. Very good stuff too
