Who uses the Bumper Case for their Iphone?
my bumper case fits very very snug around my iphone which i love. i notcied that where the outlet of the headphone goes in that area is rubber and can be easily moved and obviously does not have any plastic near it. is it suppose to be easily moved or what?

from experience, the cheap knockoff bumpers that can be found on ebay fit much tighter than the OEM apple bumper that was given to me for my iPhone 4. Both rub on the steel bands causing blemishes.
With my 4S, I don't use anything.. no cases/screen protectors.
i bought mine from apple and it fits amazing. i was just wondering if the piece near the headphone outlet is suppose to move a little because its rubbery and it will adjust to how big the jack is thats going in? its the only place on the case i can move a little. around the edges fit snug

yes i have the white one from apple and it fits perect very snug. and like sting7k said the headphone jack area does move a tiny bit nothing crazy though. i think that is because there is not that much plastic in the area of the headphone jack. anybodys elses move a little where the rubber is near the headphone jack?

One quick tip.... My Apple bumper lightly scratched the metal band. The solution I would like to pass along to all of you is to lightly rub/clean the inside of the bumper with a silicon gun cloth. It not only cleans the dust off, but prevents scratches. Works great.

so when you guys were cleaning your bumpers how often were you taking them off your phones? someone said earlier not to keep taking them off and on because they scratch. also do you guys know what im talking about with the headphone jack area? does that area seem to move/stretch a little more than the other areas?

I didn't have a problem with the metal scratching. I removed the bumper maybe every six weeks or so to clean it out on the inside.
If you clean it regularly you shouldn't have an issue with scratching, but if you remove it too often it will start to stretch out and won't fit the phone right after awhile. Basically that's why I didn't buy another bumper and went with a CandyShell instead.
As far as the loose area near the headphone jack is concerned, see above.
