    Yeah any bumper will do, really. The Apple bumper I got for free last year because of the antenna issue still managed to tear on me. So I wouldn't be so focused on getting an OFFICIAL Apple bumper just because ... Well it's official. I ordered an $8 one from sw box. Far more better looking. We'll see how the quality turns out...

    If the bumper broke within a year, it's covered by the warranty, you can get a replacement.

    i have 5 of them and i have had no issues but the buttons fell off one. All said and done i paid $25 for 5 bumpers. I'm happy with that.

    I use a Rocket fish frame bumper I picked up from the Carfone Warehouse in the Uk for £12.

    It looks good and fits well.

    I also have a sgp carbon skin shield on the back too.

    I looked at the apple Bumper and was put off by the reports of possible scratching of the steel antenna band, and that some are kinda loose.

    The price is just silly !

    Oh and the thought of boiling one to shrink it just makes me laugh inside !


    This is my set up............................................

    Best price is probably on Amazon with free two day shipping for prime users and no tax. But don't get any with a lower price than 29 99 (or whatever the Apple price is) because they will probably be fake.
