    Is it worth it to order one online? I just put my name on the priority list today, by calling in. Generally, do apple stores have plenty in stock (black, please)?

    Thanks.

    I don't know. There were quite a few on launch day, but since then all the stores nearby have been bone dry. I'd just buy one online if I were you.

    Someone posted that the Thousand Oaks store had a bunch today...I think they get them randomly and you just have to either call or go down there and talk to someone about when the shipments come in...

    Sending mine back...

    I think the bumper is horrible. The mute button is nearly impossible to use and 3rd party car conectors don't work with the bumper on. I'm sending mine back.

    Thousand Oaks! I grew up over there.

    Now I'm in grad school in hellishly hot Tucson. Hey, at least I'm living like a king with my stipend and can afford nice things like this new iPhone.

    I walked into my local store and walked right out with the last 2. I called 15 minutes before and they said they had none.:rolleyes:

    I bought my new MacBook Pro at the Thousand Oaks store (I work in Agora Hills and West Lake Village sometimes)...IIRC, it can get PLENTY hot in Thousand Oaks as well...LOL

    I'd get one, but I'm not paying 30 bucks for a piece of rubber that doesn't even cover the entire backside of the phone.

    DO they have other colors in yet, or just black?

    They got plenty at the Aspen grove store in Littleton Colorado. All black. I'd just call the store every morning.

    Are these bumper cases any good? I just picked up the rubber case they had at AT&T while I wait for the Otterbox case.

    Store in Columbus, Ohio had a lot of black ones today, I picked up one. I wanted a colored or white one but the guy said they wouldn't be shipping those anywhere, including stores, until after June 15th and he wasn't sure why, just said the release was staggered.

    I like the bumper so far and the black on black doesn't look so bad, I like that I can still see the back and it should protect it from most falls. I also picked up an Invisishield from Best Buy, looking to put that on tonight.

    Ditto for me. Had a bunch, too. The guy at the store looked at me funny when I asked if they had any iphone 4 shipments yet, then I bought a bumper. Hey, I don't want to be without a bumper if/when I do get it.

    The Apple Store in Cerritos, CA has about 100+ as of 10 minutes ago. Black of course.
