    That is just ridiculous. Were not talking about a phone, a rubber case.

    Mine shipped today! I ordered it on the 18th. Since I've received my SGP Vintage edition leather case, I'm not as excited about the bumper. I probably won't even end up using it.

    You can get them off eBay pretty cheap now. I bought one for $37 shipped which is 2.60 more than what Apple wanted, but it was in hand and ready to ship.

    I think it's because they need to split the supply between online and the actual stores.

    I ordered a black bumper a week ago Tuesday and it was delivered yesterday.

    You could always buy one from eBayers who charge an arm & a leg. :p

    I bought two black ones on launch day, & sold one on eBay that night for $60.00.

    It might not actually be a three week wait. I don't think they update the site frequently. The black bumpers said 5-7 days to ship out, two days later I have now received my tracking info (showing the bumper leaving Shenzhen). The iPhone has also said "3 weeks" since launch and yet people are still receiving them. I preordered one last weekend and it will be here monday.

    I wouldn't go by what the site says.
