    i had my bumper from apple ever since they gave it to me for free. What a piece of junk. its falling apart on me. I have had an iphone ever since the first and never had a case that went to **** so fast. It seems like when apple was giving them away they cut down the quality of the bumpers. I feel apple should honor their piece of junk bumper and give us new ones

    I can't imagine a bumper "falling apart", can you post a pic?

    About the only scenario I can see is if you are carrying it around in a toolbox
    In that case, you probably need one of those butt ugly Otter Boxes instead

    My Parents have both got Bumpers for their iPhone 4's and they haven't had any problems and they use them every day.

    Post some pics please of yours.

    I don't have anything on my iPhone, but my friend say's his bumper is 'revolutionary'.

    In all seriousness, I have never heard of anyone complaining of the quality of the bumpers. Maybe you ran yours over with a lawn mower?

    I bought one from eBay and it seems to be holding up very well.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200547723552&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

    Have one from apple store from the case program too, that's been doing well too.

    I'd say purchase it from ebay if you need a new one, don't go spending $30+ on a piece of silicone tpu band.

    That seller above (iLidz_store) is based in the states, and stocked in the states (unlike most of the other sellers). Ships out same day if within business hours. The bumpers are the real deal too!

    Don't agree. I have a white one. A little dirty? Perhaps. But I have found it to be fairly rugged.

    Neither do I. I've had mine for a few months and it looks good as new.

    Bought this one on ebay from iLidz_Store for $15.99. Most reliable company for bumpers on ebay, been holding up great!

    Hope this helps you. Sorry to hear your bumper has been acting differently, maybe a defect?

    Mine's falling apart ... but that's only because my 2 year old son got a hold of it a few times and smashed it together. :D

    They give you something for free, and you want a free replacement?

    Just go ahead and get rid of the iphone. It is obviously too expensive to own!

    Are you taking it in and out of the case on a regular basis?

    Even if he did it shouldn't be a big deal.. I do the same to time and the only thing thats happened is that its a little stretched out around the headset jack
