    I have a question a two questions:

    #1. When I'm typing a message is their a way that when I'm trying to spell "we're" rather than "were" without manually inserting the ' ?

    My droid gave me an option to select things like that, such as Well and We'll, rather than manually doing it.

    #2. I've been reading the reviews on the Apple Bumper case - does anyone have it or tried it? What are your thoughts?

    Thank you

    For we're, type werer and it will change it to we're.

    The bumper case is nice because it shows off the phone but it's not enough protection for the back, at least for me. Depends on how much protection you want. I have one and stopped using it shortly after I got it.

    Don't know what to tell you. Always works on mine, and even works on my new one that I got on Monday.

    Weird.. yeah mine doesn't work.

    Also, about the bumper... did you own one? I read reviews that some say it scratches their iPhone steel lining... did yours?

    I have nothing on your typing question, but I have the bumper case. I like it a lot. It gives the phone a better grip without covering it in a bulky case. Mind you the above post is correct about it not covering the back of the phone at all, and that is a deal breaker for some.

    I bought my mother a full case, but when she saw the bumper she wanted it instead. It looks great and prevents the phone from sliding in hand or on slanted surfaces.

    Again, weird... I just tried it again in a new compose message and it worked.

    How long have you had it? Has it scratched your iPhone steel frame? I read a lot of reviews that said that... I was thinking on getting the black one and a invisible shield for the back.

    For the first question, I don't believe there is a way to not have certain words auto correct, unless you just completely turn off auto correct. As to the replies, "werer" did not work on mine, but "weree" did change it to "we're".

    Secondly, the bumper scratched my iPhone 4 antenna too. It didn't scratch the antenna, but the antenna has a special coating on it to make it look nicer, so the bumper was wearing away the coating. To remedy this I got clear protectors for the antenna. So when I put my bumpers on, it isn't touch the actual coating of the antenna.

    The bumper is fine, it's great and sleek and can protect the phone from my minor falls. However, as someone mentioned earlier, it can scratch the antenna after a long period of time, so before you put it on, put some tape on the inside so the plastic won't touch the antenna but instead the tape will be hugging the antenna. That way, it can prevent as many scratches as possible. I did it to mine and no complaints so far.

    I haven't had it that long. But I took it off And looked and didn't see scratches. Many cases can cause scratches if not maintained. If dirt gets between the case and the phone. As long as you remove it regularly and wipe around the edges you should be fine.

    I have several Apple bumpers and no matter how much you clean before and after putting it on it will scratch your steel

    Yes, I owned one and no, it's didn't scratch the phone. But I only used it for about a month.

    True. Little pieces of dirt, sand, or whatever get between the bumper and the steel and it causes scratches. I don't really mind, since I don't sell old phones.

    Now I'm worried about my antenna! Then again, if it always has a bumper on it who is gonna see it? Lol.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. I am used to having to take cases off and clean underneath.

    Thanks! I always wondered why it wouldn't do it. Sweet :)

    By antenna, I think he means the silver band. The silver band around the phone is NOT the antenna, but the little black strips on the bottom and top are the antenna. I think he was talking about the silver strip and not the small black antenna pieces.

    I added a Bumper to my new iPhone 4. The best part is that it came in Tennessee Orange (I live in Knoxville). The contract of the bright orange on black looks great I think.

    Just bought that to place under the bumper. It'll keep the band in mint condition if you have a bumper.

    The metal band is the antenna. The black parts are separators.

    That's not correct. It's actually exactly the opposite. The metal band IS the antenna (actually several antennas) and the black bands are insulating separators between each antenna segment.
