    Very cheap case design with little protection and durability

    • Written by from CAMDEN

    These cases do look great, but that is wear it ends. Protection is limited to the antenna only. I bought two of these bumpers on iPhone 4 launch day and they both began to wear out within two months. At 29.99, these cases should not be a short-term disposable item. Both cases are now unusable with the rubber edges that line the case not ripped and torn. I am thankful that Apple reimbursed me for the cost of these cheap cases.

    Bumper Issues

    • Written by from Boxford

    I've had my iPhone 4 bumper for about six months. The bumper itself gets dirty SO easily. Within two weeks of having the phone it was already dirty. At six months into owning the bumper and using it each and every day, my bumper is completely filthy and is beginning to wear down. The edges are disgusting and its once beautiful pink shade is now dulling, and wearing into a dirty pink tone. For a bumper that I had paid 29.99 for, it shouldn't get filthy and wear down so easily. I usually never write reviews but I'd like to recommend this to those who are considering purchasing this bumper: it ideally does its job in protecting the phone, but with due time, you'll most likely have to get a new case once every four to six months. I've had friends with bumpers as well (blue, green colored etc) and they've also tossed them after a few months due to the wear/tear and the filth on the case. Apple, you guys make great products, you should improve your cases as well, or bring down the price to what it really should be worth.

    Pink Bumper

    • Written by from San Diego

    Awesome shades of pink that contrasts perfectly with my white iPhone plus not too bulky BUT soooooooo hard to clean. I have to replace this case almost every month to keep the color looking clean and new. :(

    Helps the antenna, that's about it.

    • Written by from Monroeville

    The bumper really does improve the antenna strength. However, the bumper is a bit thick, and sometimes pushes my headphone jack out of the hole. I also can't put my iPhone in the dock of my music player (again, due to the bumper's thickness) while the bumper is on.

    Style Over Protection

    • Written by from Miami

    What can I say, the technology Apple makes is great, the accessories, not even a little. I acquired this case with the "Free Bumper" program when I bought the iPhone 4 a few weeks after release. Needless to say that Apple sure knows how to make things look pretty, but that is pretty much it when it comes to this accessory. This case began to come apart at the seams where the rubber connects with the plastic about 4 months into use, 8 months in now and there are missing pieces everywhere. The protection it offers is almost non existent (the little it gives is raising the phone off the surface where you place it), then again, looking at the case could tell you it was just for looks and not protection. I give 2 stars for style and form fit, but the lack of durability and the 29.99 price tag are not even close to worth it. CSRP (Consumer Suggested Retail Price) = $4.99

    updated from earlier version

    • Written by from San Antonio

    if you are an original bumper owner - and appreciate the grip of the non-skid rubber sold for iPhone 4's - then you will NOT like this! Apple has updated the bumper to a harder plastic (although still pliable) and it slides everywhere.

    for those who want something that offers the modest protection of a bumper, yet slides easily into a pocket - this is for you.

    by my rating, you can see my expectation was consistent with the 'vintage' model ;)
