    I was forced to reserve an iPhone 4 at Best Buy if I want it on June 24 (which I do). I'd like some sort of protection from the first day. Does anybody know what Best Buy will have available? I wouldn't mind a black or white (I'm undecided) Bumper if Best Buy has them on the first day. I plan on getting a Vaja case, but that will take at least a month for me to receive, so I might as well buy something from the first day the iPhone 4 is released.

    They actually have a fairly good selection, regular sticky silicone to a rocketfish-branded TPU case for 15 bucks (i bought that one). They also have a good supply of Zagg film kits.

    Im not too sure on this, but i think the bumpers are going to be exclusive to apple stores. But I am considering one of them, i would like the green one but i would probably have to go to an apple store just to find one.

    Best Buys apple section has gotten pretty big. I would guess they will ave the bumpers.

    I'm at BB now and just saw the Rocketfish cases for the Iphone. They don't look good to me. I think it would be a temporary case for those who really need one. I'm guessing they will sell cause of the limited selection to start. But I will pass and just wait.

    My Best Buy blows and doesn't have ANYTHING iPhone 4 related out yet. You guys are lucky your Best Buy's are on the ball. I'd really like to have a case a day before my phone is delivered so I have something to put it in until my Wrapsol comes.

    I just got back from one in the western 'burbs of Chicago. They had iFrogz (lean and regular models, all colors), the Rocketfish silicone sleeves (lots of colors), these really bizzare "jewel finish" sleeves in several colors (not my thing but I bet chicks will like 'em) and the Griffin Reveal. Not a bad selection really considering its BB. Also had a full line of Zagg plastic wrap/screen protectors.

    I picked up the iFrogz lean in gunmetal and a Griffin Reveal. Will likely return one or the other.

    Just called both Best Buys in my area (Sacramento)

    Neither store would sell me a single case prior to thursday.

    One store only had rocketfish branded IP4 cases instock.

    The other claimed to have rocketfish, DLO, and Incase IP4 cases in stock, but again, would not sell until thursday.

    None had the Griffin Reveal as of today.

    More than likely because the mobile manager is an idiot... try another local store or kindly point out the a document he may have laid eyes on specifically states to release them as they're received.

    Why would it matter if the 3rd party accessories are sold early? That's lame. I may get something temporarily till I get my skins.

    I doubt they have Incase cases in stock cause there's nothing on their website.I could be wrong.

    But the BB I went to had RF cases on the shelves ready to sell.

    Here's a shot of the iPhone 4 accessory display at the local BB by me.

    You can also see a quick shot of a couple of the "jewel tone" cases they have.

    And the two iFrogz cases I bought as well. The gray one is actually a slightly pearlescent gray "gunmetal" close up.

    I should also mention that they have the Griffin Elan iPhone 4 wallet, you can see it in the upper right of the display picture. Not shown are all the Zagg invisible armor combo's (Screens, full body, etc.).

    You may also get a kick out of the "4G" moniker on the packages. :D
