Can black electrical tape make your iPhone 4 work better?

Is it possible to use electrical tape to make your new iPhone work better? Wired reader Ryan Rhea says it is. Turns out that one of the many issues that new iPhone owners are running into is if you touch the metal bezel, you’ll lose some of your connection. This can cause slower download speeds, and even dropped calls depending on your location.

Sure, you could buy a case with rubber bumpers on it that would block you from touching the metal portion of your iPhone, but then you miss out on the ghetto look of electrical tape. Of course, keep in mind you could get colors like red, yellow, green, orange, as well as the traditional black. Just remember when you see an iPhone with electrical tape on it, Ryan Rhea thought of it first.
