    I ordered a blue bumper from Apple. I'm not getting screen protectors for two reasons; the bumper is extended slightly on both sides so the glass won't touch any surfaces, and I trust the durability of the hardened glass.

    I was looking at the pop case from case mate and it come with a screen protected but AT&T iPhone user got bumpers for free, I want verizon do that but with bump I feel my screen will leave hand prints or crack

    I'd like free bumpers too but AT&T users got them free for a reason. Look at it this way, would you rather have a semi-faulty antenna design with a free bumper or an antenna that works regardless of how you hold it and have to pay for your bumper? I'd choose the latter.

    As of right now I am planning on using the iPhone with no screen protector or bumper. I have heard great things about the durability of the screen and I would not want to mess with the screen touch or the beautiful retina display.

    just a quick warning, I talked to a verizon rep a few days ago and he specifically warned me about ordering accessories when pre ordering. apparently if you go to pre order the phone and select an accessory that is out of stock they will wait until it becomes available and ship both together at a later date.

    of course, he might not have known what he was talking about

    I ordered Nike armband to use with my nike+ kit and the pop case from case mate. I am also thinking about getting new ear buds for running.

    We do not yet know if the Verizon iPhone had it's antenna adjusted to address the "death grip" or if it has something do with CDMA. In any case, I believe you can still get free bumpers. If you call and complain about the death grip problem Apple will send them out on a case by case basis.

    You might want to watch some videos of iPhone screens shattering before completely going against a screen protector. I scratched the screen on both my original and 3G iPhone from drops at about hip hieght. A screen protector went on my iPhone 4 right from the box. My sister in law just got a new iPhone 4 yesterday to replace her 3GS with probably the worst shatter I've seen. Pieces of glass had actually come off exposing the circuit board underneath (she is also calling Apple tomorrow about the free bumper).

    If your glass shatters, do you think a screen protector will do anything? A case perhaps, but I doubt a screen protector will do anything for shattering...


    I ordered the Case-Mate POP case btw. I have it and it is nice in the gray/blue.

    Same here. I like to change cases though. Am interested to see what Sedio comes out with.

    I read that the "death grip" issue was fixed, but I guess we'll see. I dropped my 3G a few times as well and my screen was never scratched, even when I dropped it on gravel and asphalt. Anyway, I might put a screen protector on the back, but I don't want anything clouding my gorgeous Retina display.

    Yeah, the most a screen protector would do is hold the pieces of glass together.

    Could you post pictures? I'd like to see how it looks in real life rather than just press shots.

    I ordered the splash Cruiser on Amazon. Main reason is that I love iFrogz cases (have had one on every iPod I have owned since 2005) and they don yet know which of their current cases will fit right, so wanted something right away. At $16, it will be good enough to use temporarily. Also have always used screen protectors. Ordered those, too.

    I think I am going to go with a bodyGuardz kit on the front and back. As for a case I would like to get the CandyShell Card case by Speck for everyday and an Otterbox Defender for more protection. Still no word on when either of those will be ready for the VZW iPhone.

    @Bigboi816: I emailed otterbox, and they, like iFrogz, are taking the "We will be evaluating the Verizon iPhone as soon as we get our hands on one and will update and that need it as soon as possible after that." Kind of stinks, which is why I went with one with the single opening for the mute and volume controls.

    Verizon iPhone 4 Pop! case by Case-Mate

    I can't do any better justice with pics than this has. I think they are a very good representation of the product.

    This is very much true. Do separate orders for accessories, I always have. Verizon supposed to have a ton of different accessories at launch from what ive heard so who knows.

    Either way, thats my two cents, thats what im going to do.

    Griffin Reveal case looks like the Apple Bumper bu has a clear backing to protect. It's cheaper than the Apple Bumper also.

    I would wait to go Full Body(maximum coverage)...

    A) Due to the repositioned volume switch on the side there there is currently no compatible full body(maximum coverage) zagg compatible with the Verizon iPhone 4
    B) I put a zagg full body(maximum coverage) on my girlfriend's AT&T iPhone 4 and when I went to put on her hard plastic snap on case it would not fit because the side pieces of the invisible shield are thicker than normal to help fight the antenna problem!

    My suggestion is get back and front protection(aka full body easy install) and either use a bumper or another case... I am going red/black otterbox commuter. :-)

    I'd like either a vapor case or from ultracase.com only problem is I doubt any of there cases are compatible yet with Verizon's iPhone.

    That is correct, though from looking at it, it looks as though it will fit since it is the one big opening. Word of the wise, however, on ordering when you order your phone? Do it as a separate transaction. Do the phone alone. Some have suggested that if there is a delay getting the accessory out to you, the phone will wait, too.
