    So i just bought a few cheap bumpers and one has got an open port so you can sync your IPhone with whilst the case is still on. Unfortunately it is only in white and i would like to know if there are any more cheap ones that you can use to sync with.

    It has to look like the Apple one though with the metal buttons :p

    Do you mean something with an external battery or just one that you can stick the dock connector sync cable with? Pretty much all cases allow you to sync the phone with the case on. Check eBay. There are thousands.

    Sorry guys I just meant a bumper that you can use the USB cable with. I have not come across one yet that has a big enough gap for the 30 pin USB cable to be able to plug into the phone and charge.

    Are you using an Apple 30 pin connector? Where are you getting cases from? I'm willing to bet a good 99% of iPhone cases are designed to work with the cable. Even the cheap knockoff ones.

    I have a couple knock off bumpers from SW-Box and they sync/charge just fine. It won't work with some 3rd party USB cables but it does work fine with the Apple USB cable. You can get knock off USB cables from DealExtreme as well.

    The bumpers Apple sell now allow this.
