    Heads up...

    I live one mile from an Apple Store. Went over to pick up a bumper and was told that the store doesn't open until 10:00 AM for customers seeking accessories only. Perhaps I should have considered that possibility before going over there. :eek:

    On a semi-related note, today was the first day I ever felt a little disgusted -- I guess that's the right word -- with seeing such a long line for a damn phone. I say this as a 100% Apple fan and previous line-sitter myself. It was just sort of sad to all these people standing there waiting for hours just to give someone their money. It reminded me of a depression-era breadline.

    Thanks, almost went to my store for the bumpers. Just worry that it sold out, since preorder online is delay till July 14th for all colors except black.

    I have to wait till my i4 gets delivered before I can get to the store... but yeah is it only black bumpers????

    last night one apple store (not near me) told me they would have all colors but not sure how many of each. Said for sure they had boxes of the black and i asked boxes of orange???? she couldn't tell me so I'd assume only black but...

    I didn't ask. I just told her that I was buying an accessory. By keeping it vague, I thought I might be allowed in. ;)

    I'll run over there at 10:00 if I can somehow pull myself away from today's World Cup matches.

    Yup, but they had a LOT of them. Though they will probably still sell out :p

    I went over at 10:00. Received a bit of the third degree treatment for wanting to go in for something other than an iPhone per se.

    Anyway, I walked out with two black bumpers. No other colors available in store now. They had about two dozen on display. Not sure if they have more in stock.

    They fit well, seem to be good quality, and also improve the reception issue.
