      Good, but requires modification

The dock connector port is a perfect fit for the apple dock connectors. However, if you have any accessory or 3rd party cables, this is where it becomes an issue. The ipod adapter in my car wouldn't work. Even an older apple branded ipod cable doesn't fit with the bumper on. Solution: I used a Dremmel to make the dock connector much more accommodating to other cables. Longer term solution: bought another case.

      LOVE THE BUMPER - ignore negative reviews

      I never write reviews but i thought i would chime in about this one. Obviously this case doesn't protect the back ... if you buy this and then complain abo I never write reviews but i thought i would chime in about this one. Obviously this case doesn't protect the back ... if you buy this and then complain about this feature you are an idiot. Things i love about the bumper: 1. minimalistic 2. rubber edges - phone wont slide around. Especially useful in the car or on a smooth surface 3. iPhone will ever touch the surface because both sides and all edges are raised 4. buttons are classy and not recessed like other cases 4. fits perfectly Things i dont like: 1. Expensive - If this were $10 like it should be, you could buy a few colors 2. Recessed vibrate switch is hard to get to Comparisons to other cases i have: Incase slider - Scratches the glass when you slide on and off. Lint gathers around edges. Bulky. Incase snap - Piece of garbage. Will crack and hardly protects anything. Save your money. Overall i think this is the best case you can buy. Sure, its not going to protect your phone if you drop it while bear hunting in the forest; however, for everyday use it doesnt get any better.

I received this case for free through the iPhone 4 case program. I had wanted to give it a try but was on the fence for $29. I went for it with the free case program. I purchased a protective film for the front and back of the phone from Power Support (my go to company for all of my iPhone screen protectors) since the case leaves both the front and back exposed. I ended up dropping my phone recently about 4 feet to the concrete and it bounced under a parked car. I picked up the phone and not a scratch was on it (the part of the case that seemed to take the brunt of the impact did look like something chewed on it). When the cases went on sale again after the free program ended I happily purchased 2 more in white and blue. Be advised that not all third party headphones and dock accessories are compatible with the case.

      Perfect Design + Great Grippy Bumper

      I purchased this bumper after getting tired of encasing my 4S in a very bulky Otter-box defender case. While the Otter-box is great protection, I have never ful I purchased this bumper after getting tired of encasing my 4S in a very bulky Otter-box defender case. While the Otter-box is great protection, I have never fully enjoyed the compactness and thinness of my 4S fully since owning it. With this case I can now fit my phone in a shirt pocket! Very protective cases are just so bulky and heavy! Which kind of defeats the purpose of owning a compact iPhone, not to mention always having to open rubber plugs to get access to a port and swiping being blocked by case edges. After trying out another heavy case, the Ballistic Everyone case, and then having it get dirt under screen protector and getting some scratches on screen anyway, I just decided to quit worrying about heavy protection and bought this bumper. I don't think I would ever use the 4S without anything on it at all, because it just feels slippery to me. This bumper solves my problem since it preserves the design and beauty of the phone and offers protection with almost no bulk. I love how the power and volume buttons on bumper are exact stainless steel copies of the ones on phone. This makes the bumper much more visually appealing and still highlights the design of phone rather than hiding it. But better than how it looks is how it feels in hand, the bumper adds a much needed ergonomic by having very nicely rounded edges with grippy rubber where it meets front and back glass. It just feels really good in hand and much less prone to dropping. Rubber also keeps phone grounded on your desk or work surface without sliding around since its raised above surface of phone a few millimeters. I have had it for several months and it has held up well. It provides some protection from drops if surface dropped upon is flat. If you take good care of your phone this is enough protection. I thought I would have many scratches on screen without a screen protector, but the 4S is way more durable than one would think. I have no visible scratches after using this for months. Some complain of this scratching the stainless bumper of phone body, but it has not done any damage to my phone. The bumper fits snugly and perfectly compliments the design of phone, and fits much better than third party cases or bumpers. On a final note the white looks great on a a black or white phone, but rubber portion gets dirty fast.

      Perfect Fit and Functionality

      The iPhone 4 Bumper is the perfect companion for the iPhone 4 or 4S. What the pictures do not show you is the nice glossy finish on the bumper, as well as the The iPhone 4 Bumper is the perfect companion for the iPhone 4 or 4S. What the pictures do not show you is the nice glossy finish on the bumper, as well as the chrome buttons. The inside of the bumper is a soft rubber, which is comforting to know that your iPhone will not get scratched going into our out of this case. Combine this bumper with a screen protector + protector for the back glass, and you're good to good. One thing to note: With this bumper on, the iPhone will not fit into Apple's official iPhone 4/4S Dock.
