    Have my first iPhone coming in soon..Had to wait forever thanks to being a T-mobile customer..I bought the white one and honestly do not want to cover it up at all really..I know Apple has killed off the bumper for iphone 5..But I just cant risk going bumper free..Is there anywhere to purchase a "Clear" bumper..I honestly dont want some case covering it up either..I have searched forever and all I ever come up with is "White" and never completely clear. Do completely "Clear" bumpers exist?? Even when I search "Transparent" I still end up with "White" bumpers for sale instead of clear. Also I would rather have the cutouts and not have to use the metal buttons. I would appreciate if anyone has info to share. Thanks

    Problem with clear is they don't stay clear. They turn yellow/stained from the oil in your hands/dirt.

    I honestly figured that..So I am going with least expensive..Since I really want clear..And figure I will have to just replace eventually etc Thanks

    That's not true.

    I got a free Belkin clear case when the 4 came out through Apples free bumper program. I used it on my 4S too (had to dremel the side button slot out a little) up until last month when I dropped my phone and the case finally cracked. I had it for almost 3 years and there wasn't any yellowing or any discoloration on it what so ever but like most clear cases, it showed every scratch.
