Wifi with Carbon Fiber cases


I'm new to this forum and just upgrade my old iPhone 4 to the iPhone 6. I am actually interested in getting a carbon fiber case for the phone. My old 4 has a Incipio case for 3 years and I love it. Time to switch it up and get a cool carbon fiber one.

My question is...I see a lot of different style of carbon fiber cases on ebay and was wondering if any of the members in this forum bought any of them. I heard that carbon fiber is very dense and radio and microwaves had a hard time going through. The antenna on these phones are on top of the phone near the camera right? Hence if I go with the cut out shell for the top, that would be fine. Am I right here? Please, anyone with these knowledge or had own one of these cases let me know. Thanks!:)

Re: Wifi with Carbon Fiber cases

Carbon Fiber should be no worse than any other case... unless the other case involves metal....
