      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.

      Nice Design

      I'm very happy with this case. 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 we I'm very happy with this case. 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.

      Becarful when you take it off and put it on.

      As a protective bumper it works when it's on your phone but you have to handle it with care when you're putting it on and taking it off. The case has 2 layers a As a protective bumper it works when it's on your phone but you have to handle it with care when you're putting it on and taking it off. The case has 2 layers a hard plastic which sits in between 2 pieces of rubber. The hard plastic that holds the volume up and down button as well a the power button isn't very durable so you can't bend the case to much when you're putting it on or the hard plastic will snap leaving just the 2 pieces of rubber to keep the bumper together. The weakest point on the case is by the 30-Pin connector on the bottom of the case, the plastic there is thinner to allow for the 30-Pin connector to make contact with the iPhone which is where you'll notice the break.

      Newest Bumper Case Is Too Small For 4S

      Same experience as everyone else. I wish I had read these reviews before I bought my newest Apple bumper case. The bumper case has always been overpriced but, a Same experience as everyone else. I wish I had read these reviews before I bought my newest Apple bumper case. The bumper case has always been overpriced but, at least in the past, the case worked well and the rubber edging kept the phone from sliding on shiny surfaces like glass, etc. Now the case's rubber edges are more like plastic so the case is more slippery on shiny surfaces. Also, and this is the worst "feature," the case is so tight at the top that it actuates the sleep/wake button whenever you touch any part of the top of the case. This case now appears to be so cheaply made that its actual value is probably less than $1 but it still costs $30. I think this is the first time I've ever felt cheated by purchasing an Apple product.

      Bumper does not fit phone

      Same experience as other reviewers. The bumper's power on/off/sleep button constantly pushes down on the phone's power button, causing the power off screen to a Same experience as other reviewers. The bumper's power on/off/sleep button constantly pushes down on the phone's power button, causing the power off screen to appear. Unbelievably bad quality from Apple and really maddening, especially when you buy it in a store and have to go all the way back to the store to return it.
