    ***Yes it's not a bumper :( it's a case.. i noticed that the next day.. sorry about the misleading title i wish i could edit it****

    i gotta admit that it doesn't look half bad..

    Most of the times that i see a clear case they usually make the phone cheap but this one (at least in the pics) looks pretty decent..

    Has anyone ordered one yet?

    i'm waiting for the Scosche because i do like the black trim but this one is in stock and they're giving a $15 store credit for when their new "Smartcase" (battery case) comes out.. making this bumper sort of free if you decide to buy the case when it comes out..

    Anyhow just thought i would pass it along

    HERE'S the link..

    Looks sexy! But bc it's polycarbonate, it looks like it will scratch very easy and take away from the beauty in just a few days.

    Ya I was just reading about this..pretty crazy how thin it is. For $15 you get the case + 2 pre-cut screen shields for front and back.

    wow can you guys believe that i just noticed that this is a case and not a bumper.. holy crap i'm getting old..

    i would cut that back as soon as it arrived.. too bad i would do the first half flawlessly and then the second half i would lose patience and butcher it... ugh..

    Will do! I really like the way it looks on the site. So, I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    Wow this looks really impressive and it says it won't scratch. When I get more money I'll definitely look into getting this case.

    If that was a bumper and not a case covering the rear I would would order that in a hot second.

    this is the closest i've found to a clear bumper.. which imo looks better than just a clear bumper..


    *i've also heard that the "Belkin Grip Vue (Clear)" sold at best buy it's rather easy to cut out the back side of it.. but i don't think that the bumper is totally clear.. even thou i personally haven't seen it.. only in a video HERE.. hope that helps

    I ordered it a few days ago. Still waiting on an email saying it has shipped.

    I loved the bumper at first, but it's not doing it for me anymore. I'm too paranoid about dropping my phone. :p

    I got an email from Ivyskin saying that they are currently running 2-3 days behind on processing iPhone 4 acessories due to high demand for their cases. They will only begin procesing all orders for Reception Case starting on Tuesday July 20th and we should expect to receive the shipping notification email on or before that date. :mad: They better ship it next week, I'm going on a vacation and I don't wanna carry my iPhone around without a case. :cool:

    Agent 18 ShockBand is coming out in late July. That's a clear bumper. If it looks good, that's probably the case I'm going to settle with.

    Same. :D
    Polycarbonate pretty much just means plastic-based. I've a nice thin bendy one from powersupport for my 3G. Likewise, I've had crystal cases that crack, shatter, scuff if you wipe them with microfibre.

    haha i've been paranoid as well.. i do think that it will take a drop thou.. i did order a cheap case from EBAY that i will have to switch to if the scosche bumper is indeed puny,

    otherwise i'll wait for iBand from tech21 hopefully they have some clear-ish options.. that 3do is some good stuff
