    What is out there in the way of 3rd party bumpers? If you have one, how do you like it and (if you've tried both) how is it compared to Apple's bumpers? I hear that Apple's bumpers are a bit loose, so for $30 I'd rather have something that fits perfect.

    Yep, these are the only 3rd party bumpers I know of.

    Has anyone purchased one / tried one of these out? Looks great online... I'm curious to hear a real-life review though.

    ^ I ordered one but I'm still waiting to receive it. Still waiting to get my iPhone too though lol. iluv has them. Scosche has several, including 3 packs which are less expensive than 1 of Apple's bumpers.

    I ordered a red one last week before I got my phone. I will post a pic whenever it arrives.

    iLuv's EDGE Silicone trim case with dual films http://bit.ly/bHNWGV

    Comes in different colors and comes with film for the back and front of the device. It is also cheaper than bumpers.

    I can't tell from the pictures, but is there a lip on the front, so if I place the phone screen down, the screen won't touch the table?

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think there has to be on bumpers, or else they would just fall off. Either way, it looks like there is.

    Now that I've seen this, I think I might try it out. Save $10 compared to Apples.

    I wonder if they are coming out with an iBand for the iPhone 4.

    MacMall has these for $12.99, shipping is high but even with overnight it is about $25.

    It comes with front and back films too, I may cancel my bestskinsever order and get this.
