If I get the iPhone4 I will definitely find something as its glass and shatters pretty easily. Dumb decision to make it glass, IMO.

Also, the fact that Apple is charging 30 bucks or the bumper case is sickening.
I think the fact that Apple is charging 30 bucks as a "solution" to a problem they've engineered is pretty messed up. More so that they had these ready as a case solution before the phone was released and "before" they realized there was a problem. Shifty.

My saga with the Bumper is over.

Used it for a day/day and a half and have just setup my RMA and setup a return for it.

The lack of dock compatibility was one thing but the absolutely lack of headphone compatibility was the last straw.

I am updating my review to "DON'T BOTHER BUYING THIS PIECE OF ****"

Got mine and don't use a dock so no problem there just use cable it works. My headphones/ear-buds work too. What got me is they charge no shipping yet they shipped it from China and it came from there to Alaska to Jersey then New York. And they use Fedex so how much was shipping.
