If you’re one of the many unlucky iPhone 4 owners suffering from a deteriorating signal with the death grip, you’re likely looking forward to Apple’s case giveaway coming sometime this week. Not everybody loves to bulk up that sexy new iPhone with a rubber bumper or wrap-around case. Makers of the InvisibleShield sticky protectors are one of many companies cranking out protectors for the iPhone 4 that cover the pesky gap on the lower left-hand corner. Take a look at the video above to see the results before and after the application of Zagg’s InvisibleShield protector. The side-only protector starts at $10.
If you’re willing to poke a little fun at the problem, Etsy is selling 6-packs of Antenn-aids that ‘may improve signal performance’. You’ll get black, white, green, blue, tan, and purple, each of which is sure to stick out like a sore thumb. The pack of six Antenn-aids is a measly $5. Etsy’s got pages upon pages of antenna wraps in a variety of colors and they actually look pretty sexy. Not all guarantee to fix your reception issue but feedback from buyers begs to differ.
