    I purchased the bumper several days ago when having issues with drop calls. I must admit this solved the problem!! I have had nothing but great reception since placing the bumper. Not sure what an apple update (software) will do since more like hardware issue??

    I was worried going to return iphone, but with bumper works great.

    Bumper (black) on mine with Zagg full protection dry install.

    The gf has a rocketfish with a zagg front (had to cut it), until the otterbox commuter case comes out

    Belkin see thru/silverish case.

    Complimentary bumper on "not yet shipped" status, however I think thats going on ebay since people are paying around $50 for them.

    +1. Specifically, this thing. An Otterbox will replace it once they're available.

    ended up with a bumper for now. was going to wait longer to see what switcheasy offers, but i got a deal on the bumper in the marketplace forum.
    i was going to get skins (bodyguardz) but i haven't used them with the oleophopic coating (only on an iPod touch 2g) and i'm a little worried about the skin damaging it?

    Originally bought a Belkin from Best Buy.

    Returned it when my Black Incipio Feather arrived.

    Then yesterday I found a White Bumper and thinks it looks cooler than the Feather (wanted something besides black).

    So I'm currently using the White Bumper until my White Switcheasy Nude arrives. :) Then I'll have to decide which I like better...

    Bumper

    I'm using a bumper only so I can hold the phone the way it should be held and my reception is what it should be with it.:)

    I'm using a soft silicone case that I like. In my opinion the bumper is not adequate protection from drops and collisions. I saw a guy at the gym today with an iPhone 4 in a bumper that he dropped and the glass back was shattered.

    I'm using it without a case and have been since release day, bit pointless spending £600 ($900) on a phone only to then go and cover it in plastic...Might as well show it off
