    sorry if this has been posted before. to the people that only have the bumper on, with no skins or shield, have you developed any scratches or has the bumper given you sufficient enough protection?

    I'm bumper only at the moment (although I have two other cases), and not a single scratch so far.

    Bumper only with belt case just to prevent me from putting it in my pocket.

    After two weeks, it is still looking good! No scratches that I can see. I just refuse to put a screen protector on both sides. I love the oleophobic coating and actual feel of the glass. No worries of dust getting trapped underneath either. My brother put on the anti-glare protectors on his 3G and eventually took it out. I'm content with bumper only. I can live with fingerprints and dust. Easy to wipe away.

    Just put a bumper and no screen/back protector. It's going in my pocket, let's see what happens.

    Apple didn't have any screen protectors so I just said forget it and went with the bumper.

    I always get a screen protector every time I get an iPhone, but this time let's see how this turns out.

    No scratches on the front, just the back. I don't really care though...

    Just picked up a black bumper. Actually looks better than I thought it would, I can finally put my phone on the table without worrying about a scratch since the bumper leaves space between the phone and table. Should look even better when I return my black model and pick up a white one.:cool:

    I put on a case on it 2 hours after getting it in the mail and it is already scratched on the back. No way the case did it so figure that one out. This glass is anything but scratch resistant.

    I out a bumper on mine immediately on launch day and carry it in my pocket mostly and not a mark on this phone, front or back.

    For insurance I am waiting to receive my waterfield designs suede jacket for that belt and suspenders thing! I've also got an element vapor case on order.
