    Just wondering how others are removing their bumpers? Starting from the top, bottom or sides?

    I'm wondering if the looseness on my bumper is due to removing it incorrectly.

    Thanks in advance.

    place a few fingers on the bumper, contract the muscles in your arm to make a "pulling" motion until the bumper is off the phone. If you find yourself pulling the bumper off with your teeth, you didnt read my instructions correctly.

    So using a hammer and chisel is not recommended?

    Will you be removing it on a regular basis?

    I think the point they're making is that it's pretty onerous* to describe this sort of manual activity precisely in words. Perhaps if the OP wants to go first? Or post a video?

    * especially when we've got new toys to play with :)

    Please exercise caution...

    Now make sure you don't touch the blade of the razor as you saw through. :cool:

    My post totally helped. More than yours did, I might add.

    Wrong. If you can't help a poster, then stop typing. Useless posts like yours are clogging up these forums for people with real issues.

    You mean useless posts like yours? The more you go on about it, the more you contribute to the "problem." :rolleyes:

    I just try to slide it off. I don't want to pull on the bumper.

    LOL. Let's be serious. It's like asking, how do you turn your iPhone on... I mean come on, there isn't some secret to pulling off a bumper.

    Actually someone should post a guide/how-to remove an iPhone bumper. Pictures and video are a must along with detailed text describing each step of the removal.

    These forums used to be civil, not full of wannabe comedians making asinine comments to amuse themselves.

    The OP has a legitimate issue. Their bumper is loose and they're trying to figure out whether or not their actions have contributed to the problem. Only one person has given the OP a useful suggestion. I'd offer advice myself but I'm not getting mine until tomorrow.

    So again, please only post if you can help the OP with their original issue.

    My bumper is a little loose, but I'm afraid taking it off and on again would just make it worse.

    If you have a problem with posters, don't make the problem worse. Click the Report button and move on. By engaging in a useless debate, you create the problem that you claim you want to avoid.

    This is what I've been saying. Thank you.

    My bumper was loose to begin with. I called Apple, and they are sending me two new ones.
