    nice look with added protection

    • Written by from Houston

    ... the bumper in white really looks good on the iPhone. I thought it would attrack dirt on white, but it hasn't even in the extreme sweaty enviroment as the gym. With my anti-glare screen protector white on black looks good. Plus I don't have to worry about lying my phone flat on it's back in fear of scratches--- the bumper keeps that from happening with added protection around the edges.

    great product only if...

    • Written by from Meadville

    you want to have a minimum protection instead of bulky rubber or silicon phone case. I just got this bumper immediately after I bought white iPhone 4. I wanted to preserve the beauty of white phone so the bumper was a perfect choice. The rubber edge fits nicely when the phone is held by a hand; no awkward feeling, just right.

    The biggest problem was that the phone with the bumper accepts only genuine Apple charge cable. I had a car charger for my previous 3G model but the non-Apple charge cable did not fit when the phone is installed with the bumper. Eventually I had to buy a USB cigar socket adapter to use the Apple charge cable.

    Installation is a breeze; just push and snag on to the phone. It's done.

    Not Bad, Actually

    • Written by from Raleigh

    Contrary to most of these reviews that you will read, the bumpers are fully functional on several dimensions, and the white looks classy on the black iPhone. The bumper protects the important parts of the phone, while also serving to better the call reception by protecting the antenna. As long as you are not completely destructive with your phone, this is enough protection for putting your phone down on most every surface. The ports are all perfectly accessible, and the volume keys work great. I have had my phone and bumper since Christmas and have not noticed any scratches on the sides of the phone from the bumper, and it is still very much white.

    Don't read too much into the skeptics, this product is well made; far too over-priced, but well made.

    Pretty Good

    Looks good & makes phone easy to hold. But... difficult to plug in an audio jack. Earbuds work fine but cord from iphone to car jack doesn't fit.

    Surprised me when I dropped my phone

    • Written by from Brentwood

    I borrowed this from my boyfriend when my other case broke, even though I do agree with others that it is a tad overpriced. Mine is black and hasn't changed colors but my makeup has become a permanent fixture on it for sure. The main reason I am writing this review is because I have been very careful not to drop it since this bumper doesn't offer front or back protection quit e up to my liking. However, I did drop the phone on the floor of the MALL the other day and to my surprise, it actually bounced because of the bumper. Needless to say, it has zero damage and even though it kind of pulls my hairs out, I wanted to review that it does, in fact, protect the phone more than you would think.

    Slim and Protective

    • Written by from Avondale

    I use this on my white iphone 4s and it looks great.. finally, a case that doesn't take away from the phone! I have the invisible shield on the front and back so I'm not really worried about scratches on those areas. Minus one star because I had it in my back pocket and the drk blue jean color transfered onto the gray area, it doesn't look that bad though.

    As minimal as a case can get while still protecting it.

    • Written by from Farmington

    I have read most of the reviews on here and a lot of the complaints have to due with the USB port not fitting with the case on, this is why you use an apple charger and not a third party one. Obviously this case was designed to help protect your iPhone from small drops and day to day use, not throwing it or dropping it 6 feet to the concrete floor.... in that case look at getting a big bulky rubber case! This case allows the iPhone to still be seen with minimal coverage, I hate cases that change the entire look of the phone because one of the big things about the iPhone is the way it looks! Who wants a big ugly case covering it??? Also, I must have a newer version of the bumper case because the edges on mine are a soft rubber and the center of the bumper is hard plastic. The only complaint I have about the case that I hope to see changed in the future is the opening on the bottom for the USB is a sharp plastic (should be rounded off) and if you hold your phone with your pinky finger under it then it kind of gets irritating. Overall, I am happy with this case BUT it should be $10 cheaper, $30 dollars is a bit steep for a small piece of plastic. $30 is better than paying for a broken phone I guess!

    Very Good

    • Written by from San Jose

    Bought this bumper shortly after the purchase of my white iPhone 4. Overall it's a great bumper. It does not scratch the metal band around the phone. It protects the sides and adds a lay-on-table design.

    However, there are 2 flaws. Number one: The headphone jack opening is too recessed for some of my connectors. Kinda annoying. And Number Two: The rubber part discolors over time. I've had it on for a month and the rubber band has gotten dirty. However, I cleaned it with a Magic Eraser and it looks much better. Again, kinda annoying, but not a huge problem.

    So, if you take good care of it, by all means, get it!

    Great Overall Product

    • Written by from Bend

    I love this case! It protects my iPhone but does not feel bulky like a normal case. The only downside is that my iPhone lives in my jeans and the case is tinted slightly blue. However I have heard this goes away if you use magic eraser. Overall it is a great case for someone who wants their iPhone to remain slim.

    Sweetest case

    • Written by from Villa Park

    I am a new iPhone owner inspired by using the iPod touch, I bought the bumper the day i got the new phone, black bumper on white iPhone does look that good. i think thats the case with every cover. doesnt kill the beauty of the phone (by just 10-20%) making it more think on the edges. feels great good grip and yea the black bumper doesn't fade or look ugly by wearing out!

    Good

    • Written by from Tucson

    Apple's bumpers for iPhone are a good solution for the phone's antenna issues, and for keeping the glass from being scratched when the phone is set down. The only problem with the bumpers is that they put a slight amount of pressure on the lock and volume buttons, making them easier to depress. This can be an issue if the phone is in your pocket. I had to modify my bumper and remove the metal over the top lock button because it would turn the screen on from slight pressure.

    Besides that, they are sturdy, nice looking, comfortable in the hand, and protect the phone pretty well.

    Looks great on white iPhone

    • Written by from Chicago

    This is a good buy for someone who prefers the look of an iPhone without a case at all. It makes you feel like you're giving the phone some protection, without covering up the design. I've had this case for about two months and the rubber around the edges does get dirty, but a damp paper towel removes about 90% of that. Overall, while I'm not sure if this case will last me an extremely long time, it seems to be protecting the phone so far and looks great on the white iPhone.

    Great

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    I personally don't like most cases that are made for the iphone 4. So when I came across this bumper, I decided to try it out since it showed off my white iphone so beautifully (plus I've dropped my phone twice and the bumper completely protected it). I've had it for about 3 months now and the only bad thing I can say about it is that the grey rubber gets dirty quite easily. I'm going to repurchase one soon just because I love it so much. I'm only upset about the fact that it's a 30 dollar product that should be replaced every 3-4 months. Otherwise, I'm happy!

    Bumper

    • Written by from angleton

    It's a really great case i've dropped my phone twice (gasp) i know my heart stopped but the case did it's job and not a scatch was on phone when i picked it up. The only thing that annoys me about this case is that i can't charge my phone with it on. I have to take it off every time, but other than that it's a great case.

    All about looks, not protection.

    • Written by from Happy Valley

    Ok, I'll get straight to the point. This case is great for looks, and not so great when it comes to durability. I have a white bumper and it looks great on my white iPhone. However, the plastic chips off very easily, and on top of that, the rubber peels off after some time. Overall, it's a good case, but if it's durability you're looking for, then this case is probably not for you.

    It's good except

    • Written by from Rochester

    I bought the white one and it certainly does its job.
    I dropped it so many times and the bumper took all the hits. My phone doesn't have a single scratch. The only bad thing about the white one is that it only looks good for about a week and then the rubber part turns gray. It doesn't look bad, it just looks used and dirty. I'm thinking of getting the blue one.

    Great Case

    • Written by from Bronx

    I've read plenty of negative reviews on this case and still decided to take a chance on it. i've had it for about 2 months and have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. The only thing is I've purchased the white one and it tends to get a little dirty but still manages to show off the "sexiness" of the iphone. It hasn't scratched my phone like it has for others. I just hope apple decides to come out with more colors, for example, a red one would be awesome!!!

    Great, but not worth $29.99

    • Written by from Little Neck

    My first choice of a case for my new Verizon iPhone. Limited protection is what this case gives if you don't have a Screen Protector on already. It seems that after taking the phone out of the Bumper a few times, it has almost stretched and dosen't fit as snuggly as it first did. In the end it's an okay case. I am a little disappointed that something from Apple would come in such quality, but the steep price wasn't surprising.
