    good news: apple is going to replace it for free

    bad news: i have to send apple back my bumper before they ship out my new one. meaning that i'll be bumper/case-less for a 1.5 weeks

    Is this an Apple Store policy or an Apple Care policy?

    Did you buy the bumper or get it free through the free case program? Just curious, just in case my bumper breaks.

    If it were me, I'd be looking for something a tad more "substantial".

    Whenever I take off my bumper, or more often, my 2 year old son gets a hold of it and takes it off, I'm amazed, all over again, at the design of the iP4. It's just beautiful.

    What I meant was, did you go into an Apple Store or did you call Apple Care?

    If you called Apple Care, then you would have to send it in, but if you were to go into an Apple Store, I figured that they would just grab one off the shelf and do a swap that way (and not have to send it in).

    The same thing happened to mine. I'm guessing it happened when I would take my phone out of my pocket all the time. What a dissapointment, I'll have to buy another. I'm thinking on getting a gren one now...

    This may sound stupid but every friday after a hard week at school I take off my case for the weekend because the design is amazing.

    Nope sounds fine to me.
    Don't use a case, never have on any iPhone and certainly never will on the iP4 it just looks to good without.
