    Just wondering if anyone has solid information regarding whether or not hard shell/gel/leather cases for our phones have any effect on the quality of the signal that the phone is able to receive and transmit?

    They do not have any effect on reception.

    I have several cases gel, plastic, and plastic blingy. I have noticed that my phone seems to go slower when I have the case on then when it's off. Since the 2.2 update I have to turn my phone off a couple times a day, well yesterday I took the case off to restart it, and didn't put it back on and it seemed to do better, so I don't know . I'm seriously considering gettting a diffferent phone all together.
