Iphone 4S Weak signal with new cover?

Guys, i noticed something weird. I purchased a new replacement iphone 4S rear glass cover for my phone, it was a carbon fibre style one. Ive had it on my phone for the past week and ever since have noticed that my signal was very poor. Now i googled this and found out that on the inside of the rear covers of iphone 4/4S is a piece of metal backing, that acts also as an antenna (apparently)

The metal on the back of the carbon cover is very small compared to the metal backing on the original cover. So i decided to pop the original cover back on and suprise suprise my signal is much better now.

Am i going crazy or is this the actual cause?

It's true. Some cases could cause a signal loss or at least interfere with your signal. I've had this case on mine and the same thing happened to me.

No that's not it. I have something somewhat similar to that. My brother got it for me from Hong Kong (which is where the item location is in that auction). I'd just stick with rubber or soft plastic cases.
