    I got the 4S last week, amazing phone. I also bought a bumper for it, and after less than a week, it's got very dirty.

    Is there any way to clean it? I can't seem to get the dirt off, iv'e tried soapy water; any other ideas?

    what I do is i fill a tupperare container with dish soap and water and let the bumper sit in it for an hour. Than I wiped it with paper towel. If it gets really cracked and stuff apple will take it back.

    i bought a non apple bumper and its working great for me. The quality is excellent compared to a previous bumper I bought on ebay. The official bumpers are a bit pricey and I've heard terrible things about them scuffing the band. I wouldn't try anything corrosive, I use iklear to clean all my apple products. If you buy the set they even include a cloth that polishes due to a rough texture on the cloth.

    EDIT: oh sorry you meant cleaning the bumper not the phone >.<
