    Took my IP4 out of the bumper for the first time today to clean the gunk that had collected around the rim. Gave the phone a good cleaning with Lens cleaning wipes (Zeiss from Sams Club, works great on glasses, cameras, etc.) and also gave it a close inspection.

    Found no scratches on the front or back, nor on the metal band. Thought I saw the band scuffs others had reported from bumper-shifting, but it was just gunk that wiped off.

    Tried the antenna touch and it took the phone from 3 bars to 1, but did not loose signal like it did before the patch. With the bumper on I could not get a signal reduction with either a spot touch or death grip.

    I have a bumper on mine. I take it off every other day and wipe it down with a cloth. Nothing to report. If I see something oh well. It's a phone. No biggie.

    Doesn't taking in off and on that often stretch it out? Some have posted that their bumpers have got loose and sloppy fitting from taking it on and off too many times.

    Only the rubber part touches the phone when you take it off, unless you are trying to force it. The hard plastic center band helps it keep it shape and fit.

    No problems with stretching at all. If it does I have a cure. I will buy another one.

    Honestly though if it indeed stretches by the time it does I will probably be ready for a new phone.
