    So I was having the death grip antenna issue like everyone else and then I got a bumper and it didn't really help at all.

    So when there was the article on Gizmodo about free cases and all you needed to do was pay the shipping and handling I thought OK I might as well spend the 4 dollars and do it.

    My case arrived today and while at first I thought it was a flimsy little POS after I put it on my phone and noticed after a few minutes my bars weren't dropping by as much like they usually do in my house. I used to lose all bars with the Apple bumper. This new case I only lose one or two.

    I think it has something to do with Apples bumpers being plastic where you would hold the phone in the bottom left hand corner... The cases.com case I got through gizmodo is all one piece of rubber.

    Anyway, just wanted to share this with everyone and say it is worth the try on getting a case that is all rubber.:D

    can you post some photos so we can see what it actually looks like and not the mockups from the site? Also, doesn't it cover the whole back?

    I actually just ordered all 5 of those different color cases from that site for $3.73 shipped :D
    I'll find out how good they are when they arrive.

    I ordered two of the cases and ended up with $4.74 shipped!

    But...then I read this:

    "3. Only one free item per order.
    4. If more than one free item is ordered we reserve the right to cancel the order or send one free item of our choice.
    5. Number of free items is limited."

    Oops. I should have been more careful.

    Interesting.
    I wonder what will arrive thru the mail then :)
    I placed all 5 of them in the same order and went thru with it.

    I ordered one, well pre-ordered, but hopefully it'll arrive shortly after the date listed.

    I seriously don't believe anyone who says the Bumper didn't fix the antenna issue. It's not possible for it NOT to fix it.

    Did you get them in the same order? Do you think I'll get my two cases if I "bought" them both in one order?

    Damn these are some ugly cases! They may protect better that a Bumper but there is no case that looks nicer than a bumper! Sure wish they could come out with something like it but maybe with a bit more protection.

    But I gotta say this whole site has nothing but fugly looking cases for the iPhone4. :cool:

    Yes, I ordered both of them together. The total came out to around $4.34 or something like that. I don't see why they wouldn't send both cases. If you're not supposed to be able to order multiple ones then they need to work that out on their website. It's not like we used any exploits to get multiple cases at shipping cost.
