Hi there,

Metallic plates, or paint that contains metallic particles will block the WiFi radio signals in the iPhone.

As much as you want to personalize your iPhone, I would recommend you'll refrain from any 'bling-bling' that obstruct the radiosignals (goes for BlueTooth, GSM and Wifi)

hallo Robert thanks for a reply but it just seem so strange that they sell these mirror kits when they simply don't work, well the front is no problem but the back plate apparently kills the wifi, I have a kit in silver and one in gold both of them makes my wifi very sucky, it's working but the range is very limited, I would hope there was a solution of some kind how to get it working...?
