    I bought a black bumper with my phone on launch day, but I also ordered a full body skin from bestskinsever.com to supplement the protection and make the screen and back scratch proof. i didn't think about how the bumper would fit with the screen and back protectors on before, but now I'm wondering if it will work properly. Since the edges of the bumper are flexible, i'm assuming it will just slip on right over the added thickness of the film. Anyone tried this yet? I do not want to go to put on the bumper and have it peel off my skin. Thanks!

    I think if you get all the bubbles out and let it settle for a while the bumper will just rest on top...

    Got the front and back skin put on today and they look great! Gonna skip the sides for now and just use the bumper for that. After looking at the installed skin i dont think the bumper will be a problem but ill wait a day or so to put it on. Its such a relief not worrying about scratching this damn thing anymore!

    Bad at first but once the water evaporates and the adhesive dries, maybe 4 hours, it looks great amd you can barely notice its on.

    Not really. You can see the orange peel look when you hold it an an angle to the light. It doesnt create any distortion. The BSE has VERY little orange peel effect

    I just got my BSE skins today and installed the front skin a 1/2 hour ago. I have a lot of micro-bubbles towards the top for some reason. Usually the larger bubbles dissipate and flatten, but I sure hope these do as well. I'll let it dry overnight before powering up.

    I'm holding off on the side and back skins for now since I have an iFrogz case. I like the skin a lot (used on 2G, 3G, and 3GS, but I'm just so concerned about bumping or dropping this i4 that I'll leave the bulky iFrogz case on for now along with the BSE front.

    BSE and Flash

    So i was about to order the BSE and noticed it doesn't have a cutout for flash on the back skin?

    Can you guys post some pics taken with flash after application of the skin? i'm just worried it might screw up the flash.

    Yeah I just got mine today and noticed this. Hopefully it doesn't affect the flash. In general the Flash pics I've taken have sucked anyways. Lol

    I ordered a "bumper optimized" full body skin. I noticed that the option is not available anymore. What is the difference? I have not received my skin yet...

    can you just cut one out? or is that stupid. I was about to pull the trigger on this. I bet it won't make much difference.

    So I put the front skin on and after about 14 hours of letting it dry I put the bumper on. For some reason along the edges of the bumper I have little white bubbles very small, but driving me nuts. Also I notice that some times bumpers pull up the skins a bit on the edges. So I'm wondering why the bubbles come from.
