Like so many others i was suffering with " No Service " or " Searching " even in areas where i know the signal is good with my 3GS for the last week or so.
I had also bought a real carbon fiber hard case from a well known maker just recently .
Then i took the carbon case off and put on the old plastic one i had used for ages and guess what ??
My signal is so much better without the carbon cover and i get 3G signal in my house again like i always used to.
I dont know why i didnt click about it earlier on but that real carbon fiber case really seems to reduce the signal level reaching my phone .
May seem hard to believe but ive tried it in several locations and always better signal without the hard carbon case.
Strange but true .... Pity cause i really liked the look of the carbon fiber

Sitting in my seat just now with the plastic case im getting 3 bars on E .
If i put the carbon fiber case on it goes to 1 bar on E and sometimes " searching or no service "
The phone is in the exactly the same position.
It has to be blocking the signal slightly .
Im quite happy really because i thought my phone was broken although i did like the carbon case.
