    Does the job but.....

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    The Apple Bumper is great but....... the point of using something to protect your phone should not damage it right? I don't know if you've noticed but the Apple Bumper scratches the metal sides of the phone. and not small scratches, they're pretty noticable. If this weren't an issue I would toally give it 5 stars. Sorry Apple I love your porducts but this one doesn't work for me.

    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.

    Super Case

    • Written by from Bradenton

    It is an out of the way case/bumper that is not big or bulky. On top of that it protects the phone great. I dropped mine off of a scooter while traveling down the road at 35mph. NOT A SCRATCH! The bumper took all of the abuse. The glass is always raised off of any surface it is set on.

    If your tired of bulk and want simplicity that works, get this case!

    High Quality and Very Functional

    • Written by from Miami

    I can't understand how others perceive that it is cheap or not a good value. The rubber and plastic are very nice looking and well crafted with no ugly mold lines on them. The metal volume/sleep buttons are very high quality and look exactly like the ones attached to the phone. The tolerances are very exact, and the holes like up perfectly with ports on the phone.

    I like a case with a rubber back because I can set it on my desk at work and it won't slide off my desk if I pull on it a little. In addition, it gives a little grippiness when it's in my hand. This works as well or better than any rubber back cases I've used in the past.

    Let me clarify that I treat my phone very well; I handle it like a $700 piece of electronics wrapped in glass. However, I still use it constantly as my central digital device so it gets plenty of bumps and thumps. Your mileage may vary, but after six months both the bumper and the phone's glass are in great shape.

    I have only two problems with it. The first is that the cutout for the dock connector will not work with any USB cable that has a dock connector jack that is larger than the the dock connector jack on the Apple USB cable.

    The second issue is that the iPhone 4 with a bumper on it will not fit into the iPhone dock. That's really more of an issue with the dock, but it's related enough to include here.

    Cute Yes, Protective NO

    • Written by from Woodbury

    I got a regular case that covered my phone nicely, dropped my phone, nothing happened. I got the apple bumper, dropped my phone, my whole screen shattered! DON'T GET THE BUMPER (unless you want a BROKEN PHONE!)

    Lasts about a month

    • Written by from paramus

    After a little over a month, the cute pink color is gone and I am left with a dirty mud pink bumper.

    I wish I knew I'd have to replace this thing every 2 months before I placed my order. :(

    cheaply made

    • Written by from Laguna Hills

    Looked great the 1st month I had it, but it fell apart after 4-6 weeks. Now my several hundred dollar smartphone has a case held on with a rubber band.

    This Case is Garbage

    • Written by from San Diego

    I have the pink bumper - it's adorable. But it is completely nonfunctional if you want to do anything with your iPhone besides use the cord to plug it in and the headphones that come with it. It doesn't allow you to use any dock or any non-Apple headphones - including auxiliary cables. Also, it does not fit very snugly and it wears out quickly - my husband has had the black one for three months and it's completely falling apart. I'm bummed that I paid $30 for this piece of trash.

    Iphone 4 Bumper

    • Written by from Raleigh

    I have had my bumper over 2 months and it is already falling apart!! The rubber is all coming undone where you plug the phone in to charge it. I know the bumper I got was free but I do not want to spend $29 on another one and have it do the same thing. Is anyone else having the same problem??????

    If I take it off I drop calls like crazy.

    Simply the best case for the iPhone4

    • Written by from Medfield

    Very effective while only minimally altering the iPhone's 4 beautiful look. The rubbery bands offer a good grip and are a nice finishing touch. Pricey.

    Awesome Case

    • Written by from Springville

    I usually don't like cases because they hide the phone so I just don't use them. This one has an awesome, high quality design to it and only protects the part that needs protecting (Steel is a soft metal so it scratches).

    As for reception the only place I have problems is at my house (I live in a canyon) and the bumper helps a little but not much,

    Would recommend if you really want a case, however; I usually let mine go naked, this phone is way to hot to cover up, and being made out of high density glass and steel there's little to worry about (unless your like some people who don't take care of their stuff)

    Overall good case!

    Pros:

    Stylish
    High Quality
    Can Help with Reception
    Steel Buttons are very neat
    Doesn't hide whole phone

    Cons:

    Only the new style USB cords work with the bumper on
    Hides the beautiful steel band
    Makes the phone a little thicker (makes putting it in a pocket difficult)

    I'd give it an 8.5/10

    beware of design failure

    • Written by from Wolfenbuettel

    While the quality of the product is great, it has at least this rather dismal design failure: Only the latest docking cables can be used without removing the bumper. When I tried to connect it to my fancy 40 USD composite cable (already 2 years old) and watch a video on tv, no luck, the dock won't make contact unless you remove the bumper.

    Apple Iphone 4 Bumper-Black

    I got mine free for the Iphone 4 program and it was not even worth my time sending my information to receive this bumper. It protects NOTHING! and fore sure not worth $29 dollars.

    Cute, Solid

    • Written by from Vancouver

    My bumper is really snug. The color is cute. I love pink and it has two tones of pink. It's sort of a hard silicone covered by a hard plastic. I'm not convinced that it would protect my iphone 4 from severe falls, but the phone seems to be really solid in the first place.

    Awesome

    • Written by from Cuero

    I received the iPhone 4 bumper in black as part of the case program. I love it. It's perfect. It fits tightly around the phone and gives it just enough coverage. I have 3 other cases, and this is by far my favorite

    I've dropped my phone on a wood floor about 3 times and this has saved it! No scratches nothing!!!

    What's cool is it leaves the back open so you can really see and feel the sleek design.

    I just ordered it in pink, YEA!

    Just Right for me!

    • Written by from Lewes

    I got this case before the free case program and I still love it. It's such a nice splash of color to my otherwise black phone (honestly wanted a white one). With the Zagg full body protection on the front and back of my phone and this bumper covering the edges it is a perfect match. I still get a perfect feel for the body of my phone and don't have the issues of the antena. I'd also like to add how great it is for charging. I can use any charger I have be it the one in the box, car charger, radio tuner, or my iHome alarm clock dock. I'm not sure why people are having issues with connecting chargers to theirs but I sure don't. It's really a great all around case just be sure to use a good screen protector and back glass protector like Zagg or something and your good to go!
