    Do not buy!!

    • Written by from fort mcmurray

    The apple bumper scratches the metal on your phone.. if you want to keep your iphone looking good then i would suggest you buy a different case. My poor iphone looks terrible because of the bumper. Don't let it happen to you.

    Very nice, though maybe not worth the price.

    • Written by from Boston

    Great protection around the edges of the iphone, while leaving both the front and back completely uncovered. While this may seem pointless, 90% of the times you drop your phone it will land on one of the corners or the edges, so i wouldn't worry about the glass shattering, especially since the bumper has raised edges so the glass of your phone isn't touching the surface that your iphone is placed on. I would definitely get one of these, who knows if its worth 30 bucks but its pretty good.

    Phone looks great!

    • Written by from Bronx

    The bumper does protect the phone and it gives it a great look. I bought the pink and after a few weeks the pink turned blue/black! Yes, it looks dirty... So buy a darker color.

    Good product

    • Written by from Murfreesboro

    I got the blue bumper at the same time I got my iPhone. I've had it for 7 months and absolutely no problems. No discoloration , hasn't gotten dirty, easy to put on and doesn't add bulk to the phone. I haven"t tried to remove it but I don't think it's scratched the antenna. Very easy to access all buttons on the phone. I only use the Apple connector and earbuds that came with the phone and they fit easily with the bumper on. I have Walkmeter on my phone and carry it almost daily on 5 & 6 mile walks - I love the secure grip the bumper provides while being comfortable at the same time The raised lip on both sides of the bumper protects the phone when laying it on a flat surface. Highly recommend

    Pros and Cons

    • Written by from Exeter

    First I would like to say that this bumper saved my phone when I dropped it face down the other day. So for that alone I am in love with it! It makes my phone look dressed up and it comes off easily. I have NOT had any problems with scratching as other had previously said, I take it off and on a lot too! The only issue I do have with it is how difficult it makes to plug in a car auxiliary cord. I have to fit it in just right and even then I'm afraid to move the phone in case it loses the connection. Same problem with putting it on a docking station. Either way, for the price I can't complain, and like I said it served its primary purpose.

    Don't freak about the bumper!

    • Written by from Verona

    As I read the reviews I think people are complaining too much. The person at the Mac store taught me how to put my bumper on and take it off to keep from scratching the phone. Your phone will have scratches on it if you get crumbs or other dirt trapped between the bumper and the phone. This is true no matter what case you use...and I don't think any case will keep your phone 100% safe especially when you drop it. It's the risk you take when you buy this phone or any others like it, you have to be careful and treat this phone like it's your baby.

    My bumper shows no signs of dirt on the outside though I do have a purse with a lining a pocket that it fits in perfectly.

    As far as accessories, again, no different from other phones like Nokia or blackberry when you upgrade your phone you need to upgrade your accessories.


    I love the bumper, it holds my phone in place and keeps it from sliding around on my dash just like the old rubber skin did. The best part of the bumper is that you can still see both sides of the phone which is a beautiful thing! My phone is an investment and has become my portable office so it's well worth the money I spent on it and my $29 bumper!

    This thing was still worthless when Apple was giving them out for free.

    • Written by from Chevy Chase

    I got the bumper with the iPhone 4 when it first came out. I dropped my phone about 2ft onto the street with the bumper on. And this short fall cracked the screen. Also, having the bumper on makes it next to impossible get your phone out of your pocket. The grip on the sides does a great job of gripping to the sides of your pocket.

    Color keeper.

    • Written by from Arnold

    I absolutely love my bumper, but with the blue, the rims tend to change color on you. Like they're dirty. I'm a clean freak and like everything to be fresh. So I took a magic eraser to it and it lost it's shine. I would buy a new one but it's just to expensive for that.

    But overall good product.

    It works.

    • Written by from MIRA LOMA

    As soon as I purchased my iPhone 4 I bought the green bumber to go with it. Before I put the bumper on my iPhone I bought a full body screen protector set. After I applied the protector sheets over my phone I finally but the bumber on. The bumper looks great and feels comfortable in my hands. I dropped my phone off of my roof accidentally and my phone was completely fine! Not a single scratch. I am definitely a clutz and my bumper case has certainly protected my phone from certain destruction. It works. Worth it. :)

    DON'T BUY!

    • Written by from East Chicago

    Sure the bumper keeps your iPhone looking good but at the same time scratches your metal antenna. Also seems to attract a lot more dirt and is leaves smudges on your screen so you have to take it off on a constant basis just to clean the screen. I suggest you not get it.

    Don't buy it!

    • Written by from Lexington

    I hate this since it made a mess around the stainless steel band on my iPhone. It left marks and scratches (severe ones) that won't come off. Dirt also is ingrained on the metal now. DONT BUY! It is also way to expensive for this type of product.

    Dirt Magnet

    This bumper is impossible to keep clean. The rubber edges seem to attract dirt, I highly suggest buying black if you would like to use this style.

    Dirty business

    • Written by from essex junction

    I bought this for protection and because I was told it would augment the antenna. Blue looked lovely for about a month but now is disgusting. I expect more from a $30 piece of rubber/plastic. Tried to clean it with everything and nothing works but I refuse to spend another $30 because the product is flawed. Resisted complaining at the Genius Bar. :-)

    Gets dirty very quickly, can't be cleaned

    • Written by from Omaha

    For the price, I'm disappointed. I bought the orange one and it looked very cool on my white iphone for about 3 weeks and then the softer outer part got darker and darker. There is no way to clean it once the oils from your hands have seeped in. Don't buy unless you get the black one.

    Love the bumper

    • Written by from Eagle River

    The first thing I noticed about my new iPhone 4 was how "slippery" it was to handle. The bumper takes care of that problem and I don't feel like it's going to slip out of my hand when I pick it up. I've seen no problems with scratches or the like. The bumper must be removed though to charge or sync with an Apple cable. That's a pain. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.

    Great case to show off iPhone design

    • Written by from Huntington Beach

    I got a blue bumper for my iPhone 4. It is slightly more "baby blue" than I'd like, but that's not a huge deal. It's showing some wear on the back side where I always have my hand, but I don't expect it to fall apart soon. Out of the box, it feels like Apple quality. It has stiffer rubber, but not so stiff that it will scratch the stainless steel band around the phone. The plastic is molded perfectly and no gaps are present between plastic and rubber. no sharp edges anywhere. Metal buttons feel high quality. Holes are in absolute perfect spots. I take mine off daily to clean it and have not noticed any scratches or "polishing" of the band; I'd say the people that have scratches have them because they don't clean it out often. If I could go back in time, I'd get a black one. I'm often working on cars, and the bumper holds onto grease very well. My fault, not the bumper's. I have dropped my phone several times with the case and my phone has zero damage. I am mostly satisfied with my purchase. I'd give it 5 stars if it was about half the price.

    Great looking protection for your iphone

    • Written by from Seattle

    I bought my iphone 4 (white) and the white bumper together at the Apple store and am happy with the purchase. Although the bumper is overpriced, replacing the phone after damaging it would be worse, so from that perspective, it's worth it. Apple makes great stuff - usually overpriced but they don't seem to have trouble getting people to buy it (myself included). The white bumper looks custom on the white phone and gives it sturdy protection at a minimalist profile. I haven't noticed any scratches on the metal edges of the phone but then I don't remove the bumper - that's kinda the point- ya leave it on! I use the Apple accessories and cables and they all work and fit fine with the bumper. I guess if you have other mfg. accessories, its something to consider, but for the Apple purest, it works great. Makes my old Blackberry with it's rubber cover look like a Mack truck. - get the bumper.

    Headphone hole is entirely too small

    • Written by from Jersey City

    I bought the green bumper to protect my iPhone, and if I had known that my headphones do not work with it, I probably would have gotten a different product. In order to listen to music, or practice for my singing lessons I have to take the bumper off every time; which is frustrating and makes it a waste of money. I cannot use the headphones that come with the phone because have they me migraines. Also, I've only had the bumper for a few weeks and it is already getting dirty. I've only had it in my backpack and sitting on my desk at home.

    Flawed. Damages metal trim on phone

    • Written by from Creswell

    As several other reviewers have mentioned, the Apple bumper cases are flawed and damage the metal trim around the sides of the phone, leaving it with a lot of scuffs and scratches. If you're hoping to keep your phone looking decent, this is not the case for you. I'm not sure why Apple keeps selling these with this flaw.
