    I'm looking for a very good case for my iphone. I want to get an Otterbox but they aren't available yet. So.. anybody got some ideas? Btw..I want a silicone case because they bounce and help absorb any type of fall. Thank you!

    Yeah, I'm loving the bumper right now although it doesn't protect the screen or back. Tried the invisible shield from Zagg but hated it, so I'm going to just wait till the PS films come out.

    The Bumper offers lots of protection.

    As far as Otterbox, we have no idea. What they have on their site is all that is known.

    I am also interested in the bumper case but I was wondering about protection as well. If you drop it won't it still run the possibility of cracking the glass even from modest heights?

    The Bumper case is like having a belt with no pants. Also, it is way over priced. If you like that style, wait a few weeks; then, there will be several case manufacturers that will come out with one and at a way cheaper price.

    I have the belkin grip vue on mine with the SGP EX ultra crystal on the front. I am very happy with the looks and protection I'm getting.

    I feel like the bumper offers no protection whatsoever and they look the best with the white iPhone.

    I keep going around and around about which case to go with for my iPhone 4. With reading all of the threads here about the decreased quality of photos when using the flash in the case, dust gathering inside, and the simple fact the back of these new iphones look so amazing, I'm just going to go with a Power Support film for both the front and back (if and when they have them), a bumper and leave it at that. I'm not a "dropper" by nature and I want to keep this phone as slim as possible. In my opinion at the end of the day, that's going to look better than any case any company can come up with.

    It only covers the sides though doesn't it? What about the back/front?

    I'm really interested in getting the bumper.

    I think people misunderstand how it works. It's not there just to cover your phone (or the edges of it). It's thicker than the phone so if you dropped it, the raised bumper would touch the surface rather than the phones. This techinacally would stop the back and front of the phone from ever touching any surface.

    I can't decide either.

    I can't decide either. I would like to go without bumpers or anything. I think the phone is beautiful and hate to have anything cover it up. But it is not going to be beautiful if it is cracked or dented. Hoping something like the bumpers come out soon that are cheaper.

    This is assuming the surface it hits is flat.

    I'm waiting for the iSkin. Should be out in a few weeks. I bought a bumper today that I'll use until then.

    I think he's talking about a different kind of "drop" protection (calls dropping dummy). Come on even I got that one.
