    I just bought the Best Skins Ever which comes with separate side pieces that are clear and you can't even see. Probably actually cheaper than some rolls of tape you have to self cut.

    $5.99 for the back and sides is compelling. http://www.bestskinsever.com/iphone-4-skin

    Yeah and they offer a fantastic product with great customer support. Same stuff as the other skins, just not overpriced due to marketing and fancy packaging. Been using BSE for a few years now.

    And again, IMO a much cleaner solution than electrical tape, though I certainly understand your concept.

    my experience with electrical tape is that it leaves a thick sticky residue after taking it off.

    Good point. I was pondering the same thing after I posted. My black bumper just arrived 2 days early too, derailing my experiment. The lab coat, clipboard and glasses go back on the shelf for now.

    I was also browsing through all the DecalGirl designs. http://www.decalgirl.com/category.view/Apple-iPhone-4-Skins They have some really pretty ones in there.

    after dropped calls...

    I have a plastic urethane type case to protect the device until some additional cases come but it has not helped calls being dropped. One drop occurred while walking on the street and casually switching hands. Soon as the left hand got it, kaboom, call gone.

    So in addition to the case, I've made several layers of black electrical tape over the spot and then put the case back on. So will come back with some results.
    Maybe this will help until the Apple update is released.
