    Im sure many of you have heard about the bumper scuffing the stainless steel antenna on the iPhone 4. Does anyone know of a way to get rid of the scuffs and make the metal band look like new? Also does anyone know of a way to prevent the scuffing? Maybe a thin layer of tissue paper inside the bumper? Any help would be appreciated.

    I think electrical tape would be worse, you would get black transfer from the tape. That's why I was thinking of something colorless like white tissue paper or maybe masking tape..

    Made up some BS exscuse about accelerometer to exchange my scuffed iphone for a brand new one from apple, then got a luckylabs decal for the sides, put it on and now it is safe from scuffs from the bumper.

    P.S. for those of you who waited 8 weeks for a 16GB iPhone you can thank people like me for making sure the supply stays low, HAHAHAHA sucks to be you!

    Please, no need to thank me. See what I did there?

    Oh, and the selling supply has nothing to do with the Refurb you got from the refurb supply. But nice try, Broskii.

    Bumper doesn't scratch my ip4 nor my girlfriend's ip4. Scratches are user error.

    Hate to tell you but it's confirmed that there are refurbs out there now. How long ago did you get your replacement? What's the beginning of the serial #?

    I'm just using my bumper over my lucky labs decal. Seems easy enough.

    As a business owner, it's people like you that put extraneous pressure on us... Your type of scum is doing nothing but ruining society... It makes businesses hesitate on what they offer for service... Especially on the refunds... And not only that.. You're adding to the negative connotation that people already have on people who appreciate the bud... Get some class... You're probably not gonna learn it from your failure of parents... So don't waste your time there...

    No way kids should be up this late. Even in the summer.

    I got mine the day before launch day without cutting in line. Pre-order FTW.
