    Was at Best Buy today and noticed they had iPhone 4 cases and screen protectors. Picked up a case. I have a feeling they will be hard to get after June 24.

    I'm supposed to get a bumper the 25th, hopefully it isn't just some Rocket Fish (or is it bird) stuff.

    The ones I saw were RocketFish silicon and gel. They also had plenty of clear screen protectors.

    Here is the silicon soft case. Feels good in my hand and not slippery at all.

    eh...not a fan of pure silicon but better than nothing.


    I wonder how much trimming a 3GS screen shield will take to fit an Iphone 4.

    I wonder if my Best Buy has some. I didn't want to throw down $30 on a Bumper. The case on my iPhone 3G was $3 on eBay and it has protected my iPhone from 2 falls.

    That seems great but a little bulky. I am also a fan of silicon case, so I am going to order iPhone 4 silicon cases from DSstyles.:D

    Thanks for the info. I'll check out and see if my Best Buy has anything yet. It'd be cool if they were gonna get bumpers. It's too late for me to order a white or green one for my ordered black iPhone. Every color but black is pushed back to the 14th on the Apple Store website.

    good info. I'm definitely afraid to use the iPhone 4 without a case...

    I realize there is very little to choose from right now as far as cases - but the one in the picture is soooooo ugly. I'm sorry, this is an awesome looking phone, and that case is brutal.
    Again, I understand wanting something to protect the phone once you get it, and there being nothing out there right now, but that case. Ugly!

    I think you're all seriously underestimating the durability of the device. I've dropped my 3gs several times, never had it in a case, the screen is still flawless. There is some minor light scratching on the plastic cover, however, the new iPhone has the same glass on the front and back! This glass is incredibly durable and highly resistant to scratching. If you don't believe me there are durability test videos you can find online.

    I think the only thing at risk of scratches (barring serious abuse) on this new device is the metal side, which is probably why Apple is producing those bumpers.

    That said, I know I plan to enjoy my iPhone in its original extra-slim size, with no hideous functionality-limiting overcoat trumping the whole point of having good industrial design.

    i ordered a IS but its coming, I was at BB and I really did not like that case. They have a ton of them.

    The kid told me on WED they will have bumpers but he didn't sound confident to me... I hope they have them because I want orange!!!!

    That case is ugly as hell, but it'd definitely be better than nothing for the first few days.

    I always had a case on my 3GS, but this time since I am getting the sleek Black i4 I made go Nude with the phone, and no not me personally (had to say this for all the wise guys out there) but I might just get a bumper because I love the way the i4 looks.:rolleyes:

    EDIT: they charged me $29, although they were not price tagged yet...

    Is anyone seeing these in SoCal? I have been to two stores and they are holding them for the release on the 24th.

    I just left mine a few hours ago and they didn't have anything out, but they have my phone I pre-ordered. I'm guessing they indeed will hold them until the 24th..out here atleast.

    Yeah, that's so LA, isn't it? everywhere else they just put them out on the shelf. Here they're behind little red ropes.

    My bumper isn't coming until July; my Zagg personalized back is any day now, and I don't have anything for the front yet. I'd like one of those cheap cases but the shipping takes weeks.
