    Just curious as to what freebie you will be going with from Uncle Stevie or if you're undecided. I personally will be going with a case as I already have a bumper.

    This poll works better if we knew the other free cases that Apple will subsidize...

    Bought the bumper on launch day, looking to get an Apple Gift Card/Store Credit to pay for half of a Universal Dock so that I can take out the dock insert and dock it with the bumper on.

    Oh... that is a good idea. I thought they were issuing refunds and not store credit/gift cards?

    I'd be surprised if they didn't offer that as an option. Wouldn't they rather give you store credit instead of straight money. Easier to process. Guaranteed $$ back in their pockets in which they lose less because they already make mark up on everything they sell.

    Just like when the original iPhone came out at $599 and dropped $200 3 months later, they gave everyone $100 store voucher. I used mine to buy the Apple BT headset.

    Good points. I would probably take the gift card then so I could go to the store and pick out a case later on when more are available.

    I already have a case, so I will probably get a bumper. Are the bumpers effective when it comes to fully protecting your phone?
    When are they going to start hooking us up?

    Probably a case. I hope they have the speck candyshells. I already have two cases (one is on order), but why turn down a free case.

    Fully protecting your phone... no. The back and front glass are still exposed.

    They are supposedly going to have a form on their website the end of the week.

    If the case I want (Speck PixelSkin HD, blue) is not part of Apple's offerings, I'll probably get a bumper (black or white).

    If a bumper is not available... ?

    It all depends on what's offered and available.

    Black Bumper I think. Wish they had photos of the bumpers on the black iPhone, not the just the white one.

    Why would anyone want one their cheap *** bumpers? I’m interested to see what kind of cases they’ll offer, when they were pricing their cheap looking bumpers at $30.

    I can't make this decision until I see what cases will be offered by Apple as a part of this program.

    I'm getting a refund for my WHITE bumper which is the bomb, and then hopefully get a SPG carbon fiber back.

    Because the Bumpers are not cheap as you put it. All the 3rd party alternatives I've seen are actually quite ugly and much cheaper looking by comparison- and they don't cost any less.

    I already have one bumper and I intend to get a second one for free in a different color.:cool:

    They’re just a piece of plastic that goes around the phone. How can that not look cheap? I know they’re not cheap in cost.

    Depends on what they offer. I'll get an orange bumper unless they have something from Speck, Switcheasy, Otterbox, etc. I already have more than enough cases, & four bumpers. I'm a case junkie. :(

    Depends on what the other cases are that they offer. I already have a few that I like, so I may go with a pink bumper. We'll see.
