    I have been using the black one and ive been through 3 already because the sides of the bumper itself gets all scratched up ( not the phone the bumper ). Im at the point were i may just go with a full zagg or a snap on case .

    Use a griffin bumper ordered as freebie from Apple last year. Still very good condition.

    Im still using the free one I got from Apple this time last year and the bumper is still in fairly good nick.
    The stainless steel band on the iPhone is looking tatty though from dust getting trapped and rubbing the satin finish away. :(

    I love bumpers, and will probably always use them for as long as i have my iPhone 4. I don't buy them from apple anymore, if that's what you're asking. I buy knockoffs on ebay, and they're just as good as the real bumpers. :)

    My husband has used the free black one for a year now. Still in decent shape, no major issues with the antenna underneath scratching.

    bought a blue one on the weekend after the release of the iPhone 4. bought a new black bumper on ebay about a month later because the blue got very dingy, peeling of the clear coat and rubber getting loose on both bumpers. the black bumper lasted a good while but it did scratch my iPhone antenna band and was pretty tired of it. just got my SGP neo hybrid ex II case and love it. good thing i didnt get the white bumper. after looking at pics of them, they look ugly grey now.

    The rubber around the dock connector has split on both sides and some of the metal band is a bit scratched. Perhaps I will find an alternative case.

    I never liked the Bumpers, but I started using bumpers when I changed my Backplates

    So now im using Bumpers from (SW-BOX) very cheap, like 4 bucks I think, and they feel and look the same as APPLE bumpers but they come in way better colors

    check it out:

    Wishing I had used one, because the Camera lens sits on the same level as the back of the phone, and is much less durable than the back of the phone, it has been scratched to hell, resulting in the camera becoming useless.
