    The white is not appealing to me. Tell us about the case!

    The white is awesome. What are you talking about.

    Black is whack.

    I love the white 3G/S. I'm not sold on that white front. Now I'll have to see it in person. Boo!

    All I wanted was a nice soft pink iPhone, and all they gave us for colors are those band things. :( And Hot pink no less.

    i really don't like it because it doesn't seem to protect the back and the front if you drop it

    This looks horrible.

    Looks like interchangeable face plates on cheap china made mp3 players to make you think that you are getting something special.

    The phone looks great on its own.. :rolleyes:

    But it doesn't cover the back. It looks like an iFrogz minus back protection.

    I wonder what it's made out of, and if it improves grip or something. Will the white and black match the white and black? And why did he call it a dock? :confused: :confused: :confused:

    I think it does by providing a soft rim on the front and back of the phone.

    these bumpers seem to suggest you can scratch the sides... but not the front or back.

    time will tell...

    +1 The screen pops with the black front, the all white will wash the screen/colors out.

    I personally think the bumpers were just an after thought for all of us that wanted other iPhone color choices other than black and white. They are not seriously charging $29 for those are they?

    The Bumper is the same exact thing as the Griffin Reveal now for the iPhone 3GS. I love that case and I definitely will pick up the Bumper as well :D

    That's a good deduction. You may be correct.

    Well, think of it this way - they form a lip on the front and the back. If you drop the phone on its side, the bumper is there. If you drop it flat on the front or the back, the lip still absorbs the impact.
