    Looked great...for about a week

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I have a white bumper on my black iphone 4. It looked awesome and sleek for about a week or so, but after a month and a half it looks terrible. The rubber part of the bumper is gray, dingy looking, and chipped and peeling in places. The white plastic looks just as bad and it looks like there's a clear film that's wearing off.

    Overally, very disappointed in Apple's first attempt at a case. I know it was free through the rebate program, but now I have to look for another case that doesn't look terrible. It's not as if I store my phone at the bottom of a bag of rocks and dirt, it's usually in a pocket in my purse or stuck in the back pocket of my jeans.

    Great while it lasts

    • Written by from Houston

    It's actually quite a good product while it lasts. Unfortunately, IF you take it off and put it back on repeatedly (which is necessary if you use an old car charger or sync cable), it breaks down. I got three months out of mine before the soft rubber stopped fitting snugly and the hard plastic around the port split (further compromising the fit and protection offered).

    Do Not Buy...please read!!!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    The inside of the bumper case doesn't have a rubber or silicon coating which would protect your phone from the sides. If you buy this bumper or receive this bumper of any color you will be harming your iphone. After a few weeks of having the bumper installed upon removing you will notice severe scratches. Scratches caused by the inside of the bumper. I suggest you apply cellophane tape all around the inside. Otherwise your precious iphone will be looking scratched. The choice is yours, you have been warned.

    Dont buy!!!!

    • Written by from fairfax

    This case is an excellent aesthetic addition to the phone, but once you leave it on for a while, the metal will look HORRIBLE! I usually love Apple products, and love my iPhone, but once the metal was ruined, i was too embarrassed to take off the bumper, so now it keeps getting worse. I assume Apple won't fix "aesthetic/cosmetic" damage. CAUTION DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!

    Terrible Case

    • Written by from Orange

    Don't get this case it is a bad case. when i bought my iPhone 4 brand new, i bought the apple bumper, and 3 months later i take it off to clean it and the sides were all scuffed up. It looked like someone grabbed sand paper and went all around the steel band. It looks terrible now. I am very disappointed

    Not worth it!

    • Written by from Regina

    Bottom line,
    Looks OK, but not worth $29.00. A buck or two on eBay get better results.
    Major Fail on this accessory!

    Turns off an iPhone 4 / changes the volume unexpectedly

    • Written by from LOS ALTOS

    When I bought my white iPhone 4 in, May 2011, I got a white iPhone 4 bumper to go with it. It looked awesome and the bumper worked perfectly—loved it—five stars (then).

    Even though the white gradually rubbed off the rubber flanges and the flanges turned a putty-gray color, I loved the ease of handling of the iPhone using the bumper—pulling it out of my pocket, keeping it from slipping out of my hands, taking the hit on the corners when I dropped it, etc.

    I rarely took the bumper on or off—no need to—but after 15 months a couple of the bumper's hard plastic corners were dinged up from dropping it and the rubber flanges were starting to get a little chewed up from daily use. No problem; the bumper did exactly what it was supposed to do.

    So, around July 2012 I go in to buy another white bumper thinking it's exactly the same design, but it's not. It's still called the iPhone 4 bumper but it's been redesigned, to "fit all iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 models." Whatever. Clearly the design has changed because the new bumper's buttons don't match the iPhone 4 sleep/wake and volume control buttons anymore.

    Now, more often than not, whenever I pick up my iPhone 4 the bumper starts pressing the sleep/wake button or changing the volume even though I've not depressed the buttons but am holding the bumper from the top and bottom or by the sides, respectively. One star (now).

    Scratches the Metal Band

    • Written by from Mercer Island

    This is a horrible product. First off, the rubber siding wears quickly and ends up all scratched and discolored. But more importantly, dirt easily collects inside the bumper and scratches the stainless steel band. All of my friends with bumpers have this problem too. Now that it is not free, DO NOT BUY THE BUMPER!

    Not the best product!

    • Written by from Sachsenheim

    I usually find apple stuff really great, but this bumper just isn't.
    1. Not every headphone and charging cable fit, when you use the bumper
    2. I now have it for about 3 months and the rubber begins to wear off..
    3. It scratches the nice metal
    4. the price is just way to high for such a product (if you consider the other cons)
    the thing i like about it, is that (with a screen protection) the whole iphone is protected, and you don't need to get the case of the iphone every time you make a call.

    Very Disappointed

    • Written by from Pompano Beach

    I am not one to write reviews however I wanted to share my experience.

    I have had the black bumper since day one and haven't had any issues with it. I wanted the white iPhone and for obvious reason have not been able to get one. After having no issues with my back bumper I decided to add a little white to my iPhone, so I went to my local Apple store and purchase one 3 days ago. The first day the case was perfect. By day two the case was loose and by today there are marks on it that will not come off. I am extremely careful with my cases and don't throw it around or beat it up.

    I should have listened to the other negative reviews but sometimes people are just too picky so I found out the hard way.

    I will be returning it today. This is such a shame that the white bumper isn't of the same quality as the black one.

    Not Durable, Fell Apart After Three Months

    • Written by from Antioch

    This product is not durable at all. After only three months of normal use it began to fall apart and is now not usable. Even with the plastic molding 'connecting' the rubber rubber to hold it together, the product is/was still flimsy and began to fall apart. I have not dropped, scuffed, or abused the phone and it fell apart quicker than I would imagine. Disappointed that I have to buy a new one.

    Look is very good, but after same days only

    • Written by from Boston

    I have too a white bumper on my black iphone 4. After a month and a half it looks terrible. The rubber part of the bumper is dark and dirt. The white plastic looks just as bad and it looks like there's a clear film that's wearing off. It's not as if I store my phone at the bottom of a bag of rocks and dirt. I live in Brazil, it's difficult to go again in Apple Store to do complaint.

    Yellow

    The case looked good at first, but after a month, it turned yellow. I would not recommend this color. I would however recommend Black.

    Poor Quality

    • Written by from WINDSOR

    Great concept, feels nice and is light weight. The case scratched my phone after a few weeks and after about 2 moths, the case began to stretch and no longer fits well. The case appears to be made of very poor material and causes more harm than good.

    Stylish but harmful

    • Written by from Los angeles

    I have read about scratching of the antenna and bad rubber. However I decided to buy it and try myself.

    And all mentioned was CORRECT. not dust, but sharp inside corners do scratches (put some cover inside so steel was ok, lol I paid 30$ to put extra cover myself). And rubber is very soft and not durable, tears easily. And it loses strength very fast so can't stay fit.

    The only pros is design. Ads personality and touch of style. Would have given 2-3 stars until the price.

    Summary - DON'T BUY.

    Bumper

    • Written by from Lenexa

    I bought a bumper the day I got my new iphone and am very disappointed in the durability of it. It already is cracked on one side. After just 7 months I hate to invest another $30 bucks in one. I did not get the free one since I had already purchased it.

    Bad case

    • Written by from Newport Beach

    Good case at first. Liked how you could see the back but it was protected on the edges. I would set my phone down on tables and it would start to break. the rubber is peeling and from dropping it once the whole edges turned black. BAD CASE!

    This white bumper looks great but after taking it off I realized that it scratched the frame of my iPhone. It should be noted that I always baby this phone. I love the iphone4 but this is a very poor product IMO.
