The main problem Jeff is our shyness
I dont like the official bumpers much, side on protection and lifts it off the table a little but not much else.
I have a very thin see through plastic case with a screen protector which allows the beauty to shine through
Never saw the signal problem in normal use, so no problem from my point of view. Of course since free, I ordered a case from them... some sort of flashy thing that I'd never dream of actually buying if I had to pay it's not arrived yet
