    I just bought 2 bumpers from the apple store today. White and black, don't settle for less. Get the official.

    If you're going to buy the official bumper, they should be compatible with the new 4S as they were previously redesigned for the CDMA models.

    They were $29.99 each. The apple dude in the store said the dimensions are the same.

    Question about iPhone bumpers: Do they stop the front screen from touching a table top if you were to place it flat face-down?

    No one is worried about the bumper scratching their antenna all to hell? :confused:

    Guess I'm just OCD like that...

    Wow thanks for the heads up Kyle :)

    Just might order that myself. I like how the middle is clear so you can see if there's any dust/debris inside scratching your antenna + its TPU so it won't stretch...

    Best Bumper Case?

    I was thinking of color converting my new iphone when it comes, so my question is what is the best bumper case that only covers the edge of the iphone? Im thinking of just getting the clear protectors for the front and back that way i can show off the color conversion!!

    thanks!

    I just ordered the Scosche bandEDGE Case for iPhone 4 (Clear/Black). I like the idea of it because it's got a clear polycarb band between the black bumper that allows the silver band of the phone to be seen.

    I personally like the apple ones. I haven't used many others. But the apple's seems to be the only one that doesn't fall apart quickly.

    Best bumper case? Element Vapor Comp, but take a look at the price before you fall in love lol.

    I just saw these doing a search for my first 4S case.

    I would absolutely LOVE to have the Vapor 4 iPhone Case. Not as expensive, but still extremely attractive.

    EDIT: And I realize it's for the GSM iPhone only.

    Most likely a birthday wish list item. I'll have to settle for something else in the meantime.

    Unlike the Antennagate Special, iPhone 4S is supposed to have a functioning antenna. Perhaps a bumper is not mandatory.

    I'm interested in reading how it functions as a phone once MacRumors members start reporting their experience.

    Do some more research on the vapor 4. I think that case had some signal issues.

    ----------

    it's such a non issue lol. Totally overblown by the media and not even worth worrying about. The vast majority of iPhone users use a case anyway.
