    Interested to know your opinions. I'm using mine at the minute with a Bumper primarily for protection. However, sometimes I think I'm being over-protective of what is, lets face it, only a consumer electronic device, albeit a luxury item. Plus, after seeing that the same damage can be done with a Bumper on, I'm edging toward using my phone bare.

    I've got the Incipio feather case on mine, as much as i like it, I'm going case less as soon as my screen protectors arrive.

    The phone's to nice to cover up imo.

    I use it WITH the bumper, because it does help with the signal/reception issue and it provides some protection.

    I never used a case with my original iPhone, my iPhone 3G, or my iPhone 3Gs. I wish I didn't have to use a case with my iPhone 4.

    I got a bumper the first day cause I wanted some protection and thought that was the best thing out there.

    I makes the iPhone look great IMO but I want a bit more protection so I'm still looking at cases. Waiting to see what Incase comes out with.

    I have Incase stuff for both my iPod Classic and my MacBook Pro, and I've been very happy with their products.

    I'd vote for option #3 CASE!

    I tear up too much stuff to carry it naked, and the bumper, although good looking, doesn't really look like it offers enough protection for me. I've carried my iPhone 4 in a case from day one, just as I did with my trusty 'ole 3G.

    Without! I rather take that $30 and purchase the Tech21 iBand. I'm a bit disappointed that the Bumper can still ruin the phone from drops, scratches, etc. I'm leaving my baby naked but protected with the BSE until the iBand comes out.

    I voted WITH bumper. I actually had my bumper off for a couple of days while I was allowing my Wrapsol skin to cure, and I missed the bumper. With the bumper on, it gives me more grip and just feels more comfortable in my hand (when texting and on calls).
