    This is a heads up to those of you who are going to buy this case and live in "fringe" areas. I tried to contact the author of the review (Doug Morse) but his email bounced back. Therefore, I decided to post it here.

    To Doug:

    I read your review and purchased the Innopicket Hard Case from Treocentral. I though you might be interested in a surprising
    negative aspect of this case.

    It kills my signal! It turns out that the stub antenna is just a small part of the antenna system.

    At my house in the three locations that I usually use my treo 650:

    Without case
    Location A: 3 bars
    Location B: 2 bars
    Location C: 2 bars

    With Case
    Location A: 1 bar - marginal down to 0 bars
    Location B: 0 bars
    Location C: no service

    That is big attenuation! It effectively turns my phone into a $400 door stopper. Just thought you would like to know.

    I have the same case and it does NOT affect MY signal at all.

    Can we have additional reports?

    I've had mine for a little over a month now. I bought it from here:

    but I think it's the same case.

    I have NOT had any signal loss at all in the case. It is identical number of bars either way.

    What sort of tests are you doing to check the signal?
    My dog is always hungry! He's like an eating machine. The Eating 650 with blue tooth.

    I'm guessing he just looks at the bars on the screen.....

    i have been using the rhino skin version of this case for the 600 on my 650(sprint). even with the case on, and in my pocket, i don't notice any missed calls, or dropped calls while using my bluetooth headset (jabra 250). might it be a carrier issue?
    it's not a crack house, it's a crack home.

    I too am using the Rhino Skin version for the Treo 600 on my 650. I have no problems with call reception signal at all, in fact, I posted elsewhere that I have better signal with my 650 than any phone I have ever had and that's with the case on it.

    This particular case interferes with bluetooth, but that's because it does not have a window in the front of it like the 650 version does.

    I have the hard case but have cut off the lower section that covers the keyboard.


    I seem to havebetter bluetooth signal strength when the phone is not in the case but haven't noticed any difference in cell phone signal strength.

    Hey Concreteweb,

    I did not notice any signal degredation while using the case. You can always PM me. I have not asked them to correct my e-mail address here because I don't want to pick up spam.

    Doug
