    It's very stealthy looking. It is growing on me, but I really like the look of the silver.

    I really wish I had paid for next day shipping on the case when I ordered the phone because as of right now its nearly unusable with this antenna/software issue.

    I love it with it on especially because of the protection. It still feels great. But when I take it off it feels even more amazing. I just want to be protected.

    Just like a cond...... wait, wrong place to talk about that. :D

    The black is growing on me, for sure....but I think the blue would have looked really cool too.

    I went to the Apple store today, but they ran out of bumpers. So, while I was at Best Buy to get the invisible shield, I talked myself into getting the Griffin Reveal.

    In my opinion, I've never had a case on any of my previous iPhones and I hate it! In addition to that, I've never used Invisible Shield before, and I think Bodyguardz makes a better film then they do.

    I liked the bumper case, but only because it was as minimal as it could get. I love the design of this phone so much, but I'm just not brave enough to go naked with this one..

    The black's growing on me too. I'm planning on stopping by the Apple Store this weekend to see what's left from the rampage today and tomorrow. Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll have a few colors in stock. But, I'd settle for black too.

    My pre-order arrived yesterday and I set it up last night after the kids went to bed.

    I had called the Apple Store near me yesterday afternoon and was told accessories would be available this morning when they opened at 7 am and that if you were not buying an iPhone, no line, just walk on in.

    This morning I went by said store at 7:45 on my way to work and the lines for reservations and walk-ins were crazy.

    When I walked up near the doorway I was greeted and informed I could not buy a bumper till they officially opened at 10 am. I explained that someone told me I could and all I wanted was a bumper. Eventually after showing them my activated iPhone 4, they allowed me to buy one.

    As far as the bumper goes, it looks nice and gives good protection. I also ordered a bestskinsever.com back skin yesterday that hasn't arrived yet and skins the back glass and the side band. I am thinking I may use that and keep the bumper to use only sometimes.

    As one of the reviews noted, the new iPhone feels solid, looks great and is Lexus-like, making the 3G/3GS look like a toy. The bumper removes a bit of that distinction because you can't see the metal band anymore. But on the flip side, it gives it a nice grip and lifts the back glass off the surface you set it down on.

    Warning: Only the Apple sync cable will plug in through it, you cannot use any other car charger etc. Which is ok for me because I have so many of them and my car charger is a power plug with usb jack so I will plug in the Apple cable to that. The other word of warning is that only the Apple headphones will fit in the headphone jack, like the days of the original recessed headphone jack, because the cutout in the case isn't that large. So, my car audio cable won't snap all the way down. Good thing I think I have an original recessed iPhone headphone jack adapter at home somewhere I can use to circumvent this.

    Are they a nice snug fit? Looking at some pictures it looks they are flack around the edges.

    These look pretty nice for $15-$20, but less so at their real price of $29. Still, the look is growing on me a little, enough to have one Bumper laying around.

    It probably doesn't fit in the dock though and I like the plastic buttons on the bumper and the thinner form factor.

    If you bothered to look at one, you would see that the build quality is awesome, the holes line up perfectly, and it is sleek and stylish.
