    Apparently those getting the bumper refund can also download the app and get an extra case for free since it doesn't appear to check if you gotten a refund, it just checks if the particular iPhone 4 has ordered a case.

    So guys, I noticed something interesting. I bought 2 bumpers a few weeks ago from an Apple retail store. One was for me, one was for a friend. Today I saw that a refund has already been automatically processed. However, I'm still able to order another free case through the iPhone app.

    This makes sense seeing as how the retail purchase is in no way tied to my iPhone or my iTunes account. I did pay with the same credit card I use for my iTunes account so technically they could trace that back to me but I guess they don't want to deal with all that. Apple is keeping it simple: automatically refund all retail purchases, and give a free bumper per iPhone. I happen to fall into both those categories so I'm double dipping. Although I don't foresee that having a few more people getting an extra $1 case is gonna put a dent on their earnings.

    Ok, I just noticed noodleboy's post after typing this.

    Ordered a black bumper for the hell of it. I already got my free case from BoxWave and a skin protector on the front.

    Everyone ordering bumpers - just be aware that you will only be able to fit Apple headphones, the hole is minimal. Also, I'd recommend getting a rear clear shield to avoid scratches. No dock support either. Bumpers have got pretty bad reviews regarding accessories and protection:

    Sold for $29, this “case” is really just two types of plastic—one matte rubber, one glossy hard plastic—wrapped around the metal edge of the iPhone 4. It creates major accessory incompatibilities and offers no protection for the iPhone 4’s back, unlike all of the other cases above. Though we like its looks, we wouldn’t recommend this one.

    I went with the Griffin Reveal Etch.

    I was originally going to get a Bumper with a carbon fiber back, but this is even better.

    Although some headphones have fit issues, not all do. My Shure e4g in-ear headphones have a standard 90 degree plug and fits just fine. Very snug fit but it fits.

    I feel bad for thought, for the people that bought an Apple dock for $30 only to find that it doesn't fit the bumper. Will be annoying as hell to take it on off every time which pretty much defeats the convenience of a dock.

    Also, with the bumper, I found that some car chargers, like the one I bought from Kensington for my 3GS, do not fit. The dock connector on my car charger is just slightly bulkier I guess. Luckily, it's a two piece car charger and I can just replace the cable it came with with a regular iPhone usb cable.

    im leaning towards getting the belkin sheild because the speck pixelskin has a design on the back which i hate and the griffin reveal seems to have some bad reviews the griffin motif also as a desgin on the back which looks bad and the incase doesnt cover the whole phone unlike the belkin which does and the bumper doesnt protect the whole phone either so i think i might go with belkin because its clear and offers good protection in my opinion

    I ordered the white bumper on July 4 and it said 3 weeks before shipment. It actually shipped July 15. These will probably ship before 5 weeks. Apple is just setting expectations.
