No, what I meant was the attenuation comes from the top of the iphone being in contact with the sensor for the sharkfin. At least with the iPhone 4, the signal is DRAMATICALLY improved in the cradle. You can turn on signal strength (in numbers) and see the difference. I actually did this a while back and it proved that without that snap in adapter, I can't use my AT&T cell service in my own neighborhood. So to me, the snap in adapter is one of the BEST features!
