    Any case that stops "radiation" will prevent the phone from working.

    Edit - No, we are not stupid. These are FACTS. 

    Partially blocking the radio signal ("EM Radiation") will cause the phone to emit more, not less.

    Totally blocking all "radiation" would mean it cannot be used in any way.

    Any so-called "anti radiation" device is a scam.

    Firstly, there is no harmful radiation from phones and computers. It's EM radiation at lower levels than you get from such as room light and thousands of times weaker than plain sunlight.

    Secondly, mobile phones use an adaptive transmit power system, to maximise battery life and minimise interference with other cells.

    That means that anything weakening the radio signal the phone sends causes it (and the cell tower) to increase their transmit power to compensate.

    Most of the scam "radiation blockers" I've seen only have a minimal effect and only in one direction (if anything) - but if they do block part of the signal and that happens to be the direction to the cell tower, the transmitter will ramp up and the overall EM radiation will be higher!

    And the phone battery life will be reduced.. 

    It is illegal to advertise or sell so-called anti-radiation devices in the UK and Europe, as they are scams, pure and simple.

    If you surrounded your iPhone with an anti-radiation cover, it would not longer be able to use wifi, bluetooth, or cellular network.
