Im rolling with a black bumper as well but I think I'm going to take the plunge into an Otter Box

Good choice.... Otterbox offers great protection. I put a Commuter case on my new iPhone4 as soon as possible. It went naked for a few days which scared the heck out of me...

I like the black bumper. I've always carried my cellphone in a case on my hip. I would break it if it were in my pocket. I'm a Postal guy who would probably bump into something and crack the glass, otherwise.

If I use a case I'll use my bumper. Mainly because I have a silver metal back piece on my phone that I replaced the back glass with. So I like to show that off, and I like how the bumper adds a little grip to my phone.

If u want a bumper get a zagg sides
And then use a bumper put the bumper after 24 hours of application
Then put the bumper on carefully and your done!
Then wen u take the bumper off your zagg might be scratched but when u take ur zagg off your phone will be in gr8 condition

I haven't had any scratches from bumpers but slider cases have been a issue for scratching for some users.

I started out with the otterbox defender series(black). I really liked the look but it was way to bulky. So then I bought the incase monochrome "blueberry" slider. I also like the look and feel of this one but the one draw back is that if you use a screen protector the case will make it bubble up on the edges. Then I moved to the incase clear snap case. It fit well with my screen protector, did not add any bulk to the phone but the smudging was way to much to deal with. Plus you could see even the smallest of scratches on the case which was enough to drive me up the wall. I am now currently using the incase perforated snap case in purple. Also comes in black. I think I have found a case that will suite my needs very well. It has the perfect balance of smoothness and grip. The purple color is very vibrant. The perforation gives the case a great look. All in all, incase makes some really nice cases but they need more color choices.

I have 3 cases I use depending on what I'm doing. I have an SGP Neo Hybrid Matte, a Seidio Innocase II Surface w/belt clip, and right now I've got the Ballistic SG case on the phone. The Ballistic case is an equivalent to the Otterbox Commuter case.

Mine went to an Otterbox Commuter one day #1. I just bought an Otterbox Defender. I love this case much thinner than 3G version.:) It is actually not that much thicker than the iP4 Commuter.

The second I bought my phone I put a case on it. I bought from walmart and they didn't have cases on launch day. I put my 3GS case on it for two days until I could find a case. I didn't even know about the death grip issue until I read it online. I just was not taking chances with my new glass phone.

I have a red and black OtterBox Commuter and a Case-Mate matte finish screen protector. I did have a red OtterBox Defender but got tired of the bulk and lint attracting.

I go back and forth between an Apple bumper (which does scratch the metal band), and a Mophie Juice Pack Plus. The bumper is for light use while the Mophie is a much better case that can recharge the battery.

Free bumper

I got my iPhone a few weeks ago and put an Otterbox Commuter case on it. I really like the case, But I also like to switch cases on occasion. Well, I heard Apple stopped giving away free bumpers. I called Apple the other day and asked them about a free bumper. They approved it and said I should receive it in a few days. It arrived the next day via FedEx !!!!!!!!!!! I was shocked that it arrived so quickly. Talk about GREAT customer service. WOW. I said "good bye" to the BlackBerry world and I will never look back. I love my iPhone4. I can thank my 11 year old daughter for convincing me to switch. On my birthday a couple of weeks ago, my daughter and wife gave me the iPhone. BEST Birthday ever!!!!!!
