iPhone Reception Case -- "world's thinnist iPhone 4 case" said to help with reception problems

Okay, it's official. iPhone 4 has reception problems. Now that I've been using the phone for a number of days I can tell you that at home, where I have very weak reception, the signal drops every single time I touch the lower left corner of the phone. You learn quickly the best way to hold it. Ivyskin has just released their new iPhone 4 Reception Case made of polycarbonate that they say is the world's thinnest iPhone 4 case. According to their press release, "It's so discreet you'll barely notice you have a case on." And apparently, having a case like this helps to eliminate the reception problems because your hand no longer can touch the sensitive area.
