    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!

    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.

    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.

    Simple and amazing.

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    I bought the pink bumper for my iPhone 4S about a year ago because I wanted a case with minimal bulk that didn't detract much from the aesthetic of the phone. When I received it, at first I was a little worried that the bumper would not provide very much protection, because it does not fully encase the phone (front or back) and is made of a hard plastic material. But since I had already paid $30 for it I figured I would give it a shot.

    The verdict, after one full year of use: BEST ACCESSORY FOR THE iPHONE EVER. I drop my phone probably 2-3 times per week, and there is not a single mark, scratch, crack, or chip to be found, and I don't use any other protective gear (i.e., invisible shield, etc.) other than the bumper. The thing that makes the bumper a surprisingly good case is that it has a slight lip around the edge that prevents either the front or the back from directly touching hard surfaces. Its hard plastic design keeps the bumper from coming off the phone (it easily slides in and out of my jean pockets and never snags or tugs at the edges). AND this bumper is actually manufactured by Apple, so it is designed with metal buttons for the power and volume buttons, which make them as responsive as they would be without a case. Also, the color and shape have held up beautifully. There are some little scuffs from all the dropping, but it's still very sturdy, shiny, and bright pink.

    The only drawback I have found is that some non-Apple manufactured cord jacks don't click into place with the bumper on (for instance, my iHome connects to my iPhone with the bumper on without issue, but the jack in my car has to be wiggled around a bit to make a solid connection).

    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.

    All the protection most people need.

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    However, if you're going to go dropping the phone all over the place, you should probably buy something bulkier.

    One downside is that it doesn't last very long before it starts to break down, particularly around the area where the home button is, because of the wear from fingers always brushing against it and from tugging it out of your pocket. Expect to get a good six months out of it.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great Case!

    • Written by from Highland

    I just got my iPhone 4s last week and ordered the hot pink bumper to go with it. I must say I was nervous that it wasn't going to protect much since it doesn't go around the whole phone, but i love it! I put screen protectors on the front and back and have had absolutely no problem with it at all! For those of you who bought the bumper after the iPhone 4 came out then it has changed a little bit. My boyfriend has the "old" style bumper that feels like complete rubber and is starting to tear. The new one feels a lot different and is a lot sturdier. I would definitely recommend this case to other people!

    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.

    VERY pink ... Love it anyway!

    • Written by from Prince George

    So awesome! Was a little worried at first but this bumper protects my iPhone famously. I thought it would arrive in a bubblegummy pink, but it's practically glow in the dark neon! Oh well, haha. I ordered it maybe 1 or 2 month ago and hasn't stretched at all or retained any dirt like other reviews claim. Thanks Apple, I will be buying this in more colors for sure!

    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

    Dropped new 4S flat on face from 5 feet and...

    • Written by from Buford

    Phone and bumper were fine. I was worried since hard wood flooring but a relief.

    It is better than most cases I've had (5 and counting) by keeping phone back exposed, and phone is much more cooler in temp. I also like the grippy nature of the rubber...it will keep the phone stationary in my car on the dash.

    The case is PERFECT to keep Apple's poor design of a phone made out of glass in your hand and not sliding around and dropping. For that I await the 5 and hope it's not glass or aluminum...both which are slippery in hands.

    So I like it....I've dropped my phone twice and let this bumper take all the abuse...better than the other option.

    Love the look - but case gets dirty fast

    • Written by from Wyckoff

    I love the look of the pink bumper. I bought it immediately upon getting my first iPhone and got a lot of compliments on the bright color. Unfortunately, within a week of having the bumper, it started to get dingy and dirty on the corners. I tried cleaning it but had no luck.
