    No option for received refund for bumper already purchased?

    FYI it's the PixelSkin HD which is much better than the original PixelSkin.

    The Bumper.

    I want to see if it's as good/bad as everyone makes out. :D

    already have a sticky silicone one...which one to get?!

    I bought my phone at radio shack and it came with the Incipio DermaShot which is a pretty standard black silicone case. I can't decide which one I should get from apple for free that will supplement the incipio case.

    Went with the bumper. Wouldn't make sense to get a case because I have the otterbox defender.

    I got that too. It turned nasty FAST so I returned it.

    I like to know which one Apple offers is not sticky like the DermaShot.

    PixelSkin HD. It's low profile and TPU, not silicone.

    I chose the Incase Snap On in Smoke. Can anyone tell me their thoughts on this one in particular? Thanks, maybe someone that had a similar one on the 3G or 3GS.

    It turned nasty? How so? Mine has held up surprisingly well. I frankly, wouldn't even consider buying another case, but for free, yea...I'll take one!

    When you have two dogs around the house, it can get hairy. :p

    Ah! I see. That makes sense as it does collect dust and suck rather quickly. Which one of the cases apple is giving away takes care of this problem and is still safe to use (I know hard cases can scratch up the phone itself).

    I got the Speck Fitted. It was the nicest-looking of the choices available, IMO (and I already have a different Fitted and dig it, so it made sense). It REALLY have been nice if we'd been given at least one color choice, though, not all black.

    I was expecting the 3rd party cases to be available sooner than the bumper. Since they were all the same 3-5 week wait, I just went with the bumper.

    I don't mean to offend anyone but why did most get the Pixelskin HD. It looks ugly as sin in my opinion. Maybe theirs something special about it I don't know?

    +1 but to each their own. I could be the possible camera cut out for it. I'd love to check out the Incase clear. Just wish I could touch and feel if possible. Anyways I'm leaning towards the Incase Clear right now, but waiting for a little bit. Only thing I'd hate to see is scratches from just a few usage.

    I had the Griffin Reveal which is clear in the back and wow, I do not recommend clear backs. It scratches easily and you see the scratches, it leaves finger marks and you end up trying to clean those often and if you get any dust or crap you'll wanna clean that too. It looks nice but it's plenty of maintenance.

    I got the black Incase snap case. I don't like any soft case because of the unnecessary flex they usually have around the edges. If dust/dirt get in between the screen and the flexible case you're just begging for scratches IMO.

    No offense... I agree, it's not a very pretty case. They could've offered red or something, IMHO. But I got it because it appears to offer the best protection. The bumper alone doesn't really offer much in the form of protection, the incase left a lot open at the top/bottom, and the griffins were basically poly-plastic, which look like crap when they get scuffed up.

    I had watched the videos of the pixelskin HD, and it seems fairly rigid for a flex case, so I thought it was a good option.
