    Great case!

    • Written by from Franklin

    I'm only not giving it 5 stars due to the price. I've had my iPhone since early August and have just used this bumper as protection. There's not a scratch on the phone. I pretty much just leave it alone (though I did check to make sure it's not scratching the steel), so I'm wondering if the reviews of people getting scratches and rubber peeling are people who remove it a lot. Anyway, if you want a nonbulky case that works, I definitely recommend this. I've had it on the phone from day 1 and have yet to have a dropped call or signal issues.

    Pretty sweet, though not without faults

    • Written by from Malden

    I love this bumper, nice and vibrant and does the job while not adding bulk to the phone.
    my complaints are the same as previous reviewers. its much nicer than i expected, the two tone plastic is a nice detail.
    1) too expensive, should be $19, not $29
    2 )earphone hole is small, but it fits the stick headphones and shure headphones/ear monitors just fine.
    3) 30 pin connector hole is specifically made for the iphone charger, 3rd party ones will have trouble or wont connect.

    solutions:

    if the earphone hole is too small, create a bigger hole by using an exacto knife.

    i shaved down and cut out some of plastic surrounding the 30-pin connector hole and also shaved and cut some of the plastic housing on my 3rd party charger - used an exacto knife and sand paper - they both fit now and i did so with out taking away from or ruining the case.

    I LOVE IT !!

    • Written by from poplar bluff

    I LOVE IT!! It feels phenomenal and looks great! I also like how it makes my phone look bigger.
    For some reason my reception has been working better since I got it and my calls don't fail anymore so I can talk to someone without having to call them back more than once.

    Thank you SO MUCH!
    It's not bulky like a case and is better than a skin. It's a new kind of case , and I look forward to getting one of each color

    Good, but...

    • Written by from tucson

    The case is really nice when it comes to not make your iPhoen very bulky. It is very light and I love that.

    The problem is that after a few months, the color starts to fade and also it gets several cracks in a lot of parts of the case. Drop the price or increse the quality Apple!

    Great product with one flaw

    • Written by from Mississauga

    The bumper has become my favourite iPhone case, mainly because it protects the metal sides and prevents the front or back of the phone from touching a surface and getting scratched.

    I have had the orange bumper for a few months now and the only disappointment is that the edges of the bumper discolour and get brownish very quickly, especially if you keep your phone in your jean pocket. As a result, my orange bumper has turned a very dark orange. I have tried cleaning with no result.

    I recently purchased a blue bumper for a change because I still love this case.

    Fantastic... but...

    • Written by from Grandville

    The bumper does its job well and I haven't had a single problem with it falling off or getting in the way.

    ... But, and it's probably just a vanity thing, I really don't like the discoloration brought about by everyday use. I've only had it for a month and the color variation between the hard plastic and the rubber is quite drastic (I've even considered buying another case). It's not like I drop it all the time or roll it around in the dirt, it just seems to have gotten dirty somehow. No amount of scrubbing or cleaning has managed to get it clean, either.

    Overall it's a great case and it lets you show off your iPhone, too. The discoloration is just annoying...

    Great improvement to look and feel but...

    • Written by from Massillon

    I got the bumper because I don't like big bulky iPhone cases, they take away from the beautiful design of the iPhone.

    I like being able to set the phone down and not have to worry about the glass touching whatever I am setting it on.

    Pros: Better call reception and look. Better reception and over all feel of the phone.
    I love it.

    Cons: The only issue was that, I didn't move the bumper in fear of the reviews of scratching the metal casing of my phone, low and behold, it isn't scratched but it has a weird moldy looking rub mark all over it.

    Other than that, I love it.

    Love this case makes the iPhone look great and protects it. The only thing i would tell u to get is a back screen protector for it so it does not get scratched by your finger prints!!

    Good and bad.

    • Written by from Scotch Plains

    Pros: protective, it has prevented the phone from taking any damage due to drops.

    Cons: the soft silicone fades into a pale grayish orange while the hard plastic remains nice and bright.

    5 stars for functionality, 1 star for aesthetics.

    looks great to start, but gets ugly

    • Written by from Burlington

    I have an orange bumper. Nice, elegant looking protection. However, if you hold this little bit of plastic and rubber in your hand, it feels bad to think you paid more than a dollar for it. The outer rubbery portion soaked up any all all ink, dirt, etc and became ugly and discolored within a couple months. I've tried to clean it, but to no avail. It seems this is true of all the light colors- go with black.

    Amazing product!

    • Written by from Greenwood

    After reading the online reviews, I was somewhat nervous about buying the iPhone bumper, but I took the plunge anyway. It fit my CDMA iPhone 4 perfectly, and the protection it provides is wonderful, without adding much bulk.

    Some users have reported that the antenna is scratched by the bumper...
    This is caused by sand/grit caught underneath the bumper.

    Also, some people think this product is overpriced. It is NOT. Most cases run $35-$80, while the bumper is only $30.

    Looks Cool. Doesn't Last Long.

    • Written by from Albion

    I have had my orange bumper on my iPhone for about 6 months and just had to get a new case - the bumper looks awesome at first and works great, but after a few months the soft rubber around the edges started to fray a little and the rubber began to lose it's brightness and turn almost a grey/orange. If you are looking for something cool for a short time - definitely get a bumper, but if you are looking for something more sturdy I would look at another case option.

    Don't waste money...

    • Written by from Fallbrook

    I bought the Orange bumper for my phone when I bought it in 4 months ago and after 3 weeks, it was beginning to look dirty and I too was noticing that it was scratching up the stainless steel sides of my iphone. Also, the headphone jack and the data/charging port are only compatible with an Apple cable or Apple headphones which requires you to take the case off an awful lot which isn't preferred but taking it off also began to wear down the case overall...it lost its tension on the phone and the rubber began to peel away from the plastic.

    Overall, very disappointed with this considering that I purchased it as an Apple product for $30...I would highly recommend spending less and getting a better case from InCase or such as this product is faulty. I now have a clear hard case from InCase that I am very happy with. Don't make the same mistake and waste money like I did...

    it's alright.

    • Written by from East Elmhurst

    have the black one, loved it combined with the anti-glare screen. but then i would wear skinny jeans and it would be a pain to take out, because the sides are rubber. when i would take it out, it would be covered in lint, obviously. also taking it on and off a few times, the case stretches out and starts to lose it's shape.

    Great slimline protection

    • Written by from Clarksville

    I bought 2 of these, one for my wife and 1 for myself. It protects the phone from drops while still showing off our iPhones. Use to keep them in big bulky cases then realized we didn't need to as the iPhone 4 can stand up to a lot. Go get one you won't be disappointed!

    Gets Dirty!

    • Written by from Trenton

    I have bought 3 of these bumpers since the first iphone 4 came out; green, orange, and black. Unless you are buying black, don't do it. The lighter colors get dirty and there's absolutely no way to clean them. I have tried scrubbing them until my fingers go numb and they just don't come clean. I don't know what kind of rubber they use for these but they need to change it. I gave it 3 stars because it does do the job!

    Does its job very well

    • Written by from Rowley

    I'm not a big fan of cases on Apple products because they always ruin the aesthetics, bulking them up big time. But I bought a bumper because I felt I had to with the iPhone being almost all glass on the outside and I love the simplicity of the bumper's design. I've had mine for almost a year and it's performed very well. At night I remove the bumper so I can use my iPhone dock, so it's gone through hundreds of off/on movements and hasn't broken or loosened. After many accident-free months, my iPhone took a dive from waist height onto pavement. The iPhone came out unscathed. The same month I dropped it a second time (what's wrong with me?) and once again my iPhone is safe. I'm very happy and rather impressed that this little "case" does its job so well! I may buy a new one soon since I've dinged up my current one now. ;-)

    (One star removed because $30 is steep for a ring of plastic and rubber.)

    I have the white iPhone, and purchased and the orange bumper looks really cool. it has protected my phone though a few drops, which i am thankful for, because im clumsy. however, i had a receipt in my purse, and the ink rubbed off onto the case. i have tried everything in the book to try to get it off, and have had no luck. i would consider just buying new one if the price wasn't so steep. but overall, i would recommend it to anyone!
