    Lasted one year

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    Had this bumper for a year, and the soft edges started peeling off the band. So for me, it lasted exactly one year. How did they do that?

    I LOVE IT!

    • Written by from Orlando

    I love the bumper! I have all the colors! One color that I would love to see is purple! The scratches don't really matter to me because your gonna have the bumper on anyways so no one would see it. It fits in my iHome perfectly and I have a verizon phone. I've dropped my phone tons of times not a single scratch. This might be one of the best accessories ever!

    Am just now replacing after a year

    • Written by from Saint Petersburg

    I have had this case since the day the 4g came out. I am rough on my phones and cases and the rubber just now started to peel away from the plastic portion of the case. The case won't protect the phone from severe abuse, but it does a good job protecting it from day to day use and wear and tear.

    Still Looks New

    • Written by from Hercules

    I got the black bumper the day of the iPhone 4 launch, and I was later reimbursed for the $29 because Apple was refunding the cost due to an antenna issue at that time. My bumper still looks new and there is no discoloration that I can see. I put a Zagg film on the front and back of the phone and the bumper covers the edges. I have dropped my phone, but this little bumper prevented any damage. I don't have any problem with charging the phone either, so it must just be with the Verizon phones that this is an issue. I agree, though, that $29 seems a bit much to pay, but I've read that cheaper copy-cat versions may look the same, but soon start to fall apart.

    Price Too High For What It Is, Cheaply Made:(

    • Written by from Centennial

    This never really appealed to me due to the lack of protection but I decided to buy one and get some clear films for the back and front of my iphone. Not even 24 hours later, the silver button covers on the volume and sleep buttons completely fell off. The outer ring is also very cheaply made as it is just plastic with a little rubber on the outside, so watch carefully as you take it off or it will scratch your phone. Not worth $30, you should definitely look around.

    Looks Great Until...

    • Written by from Ipswich

    This bumper is a really great idea, it adds grip to the iPhone and it protects it when you put it down on tables, because it keeps the phone about a quarter of a centimetre off the surface. It does, however, have some problems. Like loads of other people have mentioned, the bumper discolours and what was a hot pink is now a grey pink on the corners. This, however, I do not mind too much, because it reminds me that if I didn't have the case, my phone would be taking the dirt instead.
    One more issue, the inside somehow becomes almost spiky in some parts and that can cause little scratches on the antenna. It doesn't effect the phone's performance but it is a little irritating.

    LOVE!

    • Written by from El Segundo

    I have gone through as many Verizon iPhone cases that are out there and have not been satisfied with any of them. I finally broke down and bought the hot pink bumper and it is definitely the best case/cover that I have found for this phone. It keeps the overall size of the phone very similar to the actual size of the phone-no bulk or added size. I have dropped the phone a few times and it keeps the phone safe-no knicks or scratches.
    I have an iHome that I dock it into at night to charge and I dont have to take the bumper off at all...my only complaint is that it does get a little dirty on the rubber part of the pink, however I love the case and will definitely stick with this one over any of the others I have purchased in the past.

    Get it in black if you get it at all.

    • Written by from waxhaw

    I had a blue one and it turned brownish blue and I can't figure out how to clean it. I've tried the most ridiculous cleaning methods. It seems that it'd be better to get something that won't show the dirt and that's the black bumper. I ended up buying a different case entirely.

    Great Protection

    I love this case...it has saved my iPhone so many times from the "dropping on the floor"!!! The color, I have the orange one, was nice; but it has got dirty fairly quick...

    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

    Good design and protection

    • Written by from CALDWELL

    I got the bumper through the free bumper program when the iPhone 4 was released. I have a zagg protector and in all honesty this combo works awesome and maintains the original look of the phone. I take care of my stuff like no other and I finally dropped it on concrete last week. Nothing happened!!! I did noticed that with the bumper, the reception was better than without it. I think it is a bit overpriced, in my opinion it should be on the $15 price range rather than the $29. Overall it looks great and will protect your phone if you have something else on the screen and back.

    Free Bumper for new iPhone4

    • Written by from GREENWICH

    When I removed the bumpber, I found it has scratched up the matte metal band that runs around the phone. My reception is no better or worse with the bumper. Now that the rubber bumper has ripped, spending $29.00 for a new one would be outrageous!

    There are better cases...

    • Written by from yulee

    I am very paranoid about scratches on my phone, and the overall protection of it too. The bumper was nice fitting case, that did not take away from the look of the phone, but I did not like how the back of the phone was left exposed. Lets say you put the phone in your pocket, then you put your keys in the same pocket, the back is going to get scratched up. This is why I went to other cases that were less expensive (if you know how to shop) and offered more protection to the overall phone. The protection comes at the cost; you will be hiding the true beauty of the phone.

    Good but bad

    • Written by from The Woodlands

    GOOD look and everything the only thing is that is scratches the chrome band. but it does protect your iphone 4. If you want a case that sleek this is for you if you dont mind the scratches.

    This case will scratch your phone!

    • Written by from Buckeye

    I've been using this case for about a month since I got it free from Apple. I took it off today and noticed that the sides of my phone are all scratched up. This is supposed to protect your phone, but it actually damages it. I used this phone for 6 months without this case and it didn't have a scratch.
