I had refused to get a bumper to avoid any potential antenna issues (mine only drops 1 or 2 bars) just on the basis that I should not have to pay more money to avoid the issue. I also didnt like the idea of paying $30 for a rubberband. Well when I drive I keep the phone on my right leg and thie iPhone 4 is too slick so it would always slide around. I also dont like setting it down on some surfaces and risking getting more than the 2 ultra fine and barely visible scratches I have now. So I relented and purchased a white bumper last night. I actually can't wait to get it. So why did you all decide to get a bumper?
