Thank you so much for the free bumper! I have the Apple Bumper, Incipio NGP, and Speck PixelSkin HD and this free one is my favorite.
It adds 0 bulk, I got the clear so it let's me see the design of the iPhone
couldn't be happier. Would like to buy other colors, where can I get them?

Well I just got the free bumper from tipb. Defintly glad that I didn't pay for it. It was free so I'm not gonna complain but I found it to be not so great. My sleep/wake button is super hard to press with it on and the volume buttons are hard to push as well. And I'm not to fond of the clearness of the case since I got the yellow one.
Anyone else finding the same problems with the sleep/wake button

I do prefer this case to my apple bumper though. It's slimmer (probably half the thickness), fits tighter (doesn't budge), and all my 3rd party chargers/connectors work. The apple bumper does look better with the metal buttons and plastic/rubber contrast (I have a white one) but this black bumper is matte and is very simple and clean looking. I recently bought a "slim bumper" on ebay and I think it may be the same one. It was about $3 from HK. We'll see in a few weeks. Thanks TiPB!

yea my volume buttons arent that bad either but still hard to press IMO. it does fit tigher which is nice, however i think i will stick with apples bumper for now. the tipb bumper just feels more slippery to me...thanks for the offer though tipb! dont get me wrong, i defintly appreciate it!

Yeah this bumper is more slippery than the Apple one. I was using the phone naked since launch day even though I bought an incipio feather so the grip is still better than nothing. I got an Apple bumper 2 weeks ago because I was sick of losing signal. Even with boiling and using side skins it didn't fit as tight as this one. I think the plastic part of the bumper limits how much it can stretch so it has to be slightly bigger than the steel band. I also think the Apple bumper could be significantly thinner. The lip on this bumper that raises the glass of a flat surface is also a bit higher than the Apple bumper. Basically if you could fuse the attributes of both bumpers together I'd be set. I haven't been happy with any cases because of the square shape of the iPhone 4. Bumpers are the way to go for me.

yea, the only 2 things i dont like about tipbs bumpers are the hard to press sleep button and the clearish color to it. if it was a solid color it would be alot harder to stick with the apple bumper. my apple bumper doesnt slide around that much though, guess i got lucky lol..only problem i have with the apple bumper is i cant use my iphone 4 dock i bought like 2wks before they offered the free bumpers. wasnt gonna spend $29 on apples bumper...im satisfied with apples bumper and i still dont think i would pay $29 for one...although maybe if they made a yellow one lol. honestly i dont even like cases i only have the bumper on because it was free and it stops the glass on the back of the ip4 from touching the surface. the little noises the dust and dirt inbetween the glass and surface scares me lol
