iPhone 4 colored bumpers

Apple colored iPhone 4 bumpers

No sooner does one of our readers get his dock, than another let's us know his lime-green bumper has arrived. Apple Retail Stores only had black bumpers available for sale at launch, if any, so its great to see at least one colored one show up in the wild.

Did you get your colored bumper yet? How's it look?

[Thanks Keil!]

Welcome! Anyone else that has a different color should send one in to TiPB! I don't understand why apple doesn't show the bumpers off with the black iPhone, since it is the only color iPhone out right now. Lol

Andrew Elliott says:

Looks like it the picture was taken with an original iPhone zing?
Honestly the colors in the picture are so horrible I can't tell. I am curious to see the bumpers on the black phones, all Apple shows are on the white ones.

jumpman2033 says:

I'm hoping to see more colors in the future. I just bought a black one, but would like a silver or dark green one.

Greg Foster says:

No bumper for me, got a great case from AT&T.

tuscanidream says:

Sorry guys. I had to take the photo with my 3GS. I don't have two iPhone 4's. :(

Dealwagon says:

Not in stock ANYWHERE but apple. 29+4(or more) shipping = get a small piece of rubber to protect my phone in 2-3 weeks. Ugh. :(
Yes, I ordered anyway.

George Costanza says:

People with cases...
I don't know...

zeagus says:

I actually ordered a clear super thin one off of eBay for $7 and it'll do just fine 'til I decide if I want something different. Fixes the antenna issue and stays outta my way without costing $34 w/shipping.

ThisBrian says:

I bought a black bumper on opening day and it's still unopened. I think I like it without a case. I don't have antenna problems.

Trevor says:

Is it just the light or is the apple on the Macbook yellow???? How did he do that?? Seriously, I want that!

Geno says:

Does the bumper stay on the iPhone good? Does it seem to "lock on" around the edge of the phone? I just ordered one but sometimes I look at it and it seems like it could come off the edge easily. Thanks!!! Great site!

dmackdaddy says:

Do all your 3rd party accessories work with this Apple Bumper case? I had to take mine off for it to work. Boooo! Returning it.

cgolca says:

I got a black bumper on launch day and it's actually really nice it fits really good! And feels like it will protect it.

brownat89 says:

@ Geno
Yes, I got the bumper on launch day and it's hard plastic in the middle with silicone on the sides to get it over the phone without scratching. Usually I'm not a case guy, but with both sides being glass I decided that this would be a great alternative to a case. While the price seems steep, in the long run it could defend you phone from any immediate damage.

Why doesn't apple release a crystal clear bumper so we can show off the stainless steel on the great iPhone4 hardware.

Jeff B. says:

I'm one of the holdouts for a white phone. While I'm not thrilled with paying $29 for a bumper (and hopefully with find a cheaper alternative before the white one is available), I will be getting a black one. I really think I'll like the tuxedo look for my phone. IF I had gone for a black phone, I'd want a white bumper.

memphis says:

received my orange bumper today when i ordered it i was told it would not ship till 07/02 but like the iphone4 i received it early. though i am pleased with the look and feel i still have a hard time believing it cost 29 dollars its just silicon that wraps around the phone. looks great on it doesn't cover up the phone except for the stainless steel.

Darkstar says:

Fake!! Lies!!! What self-respecting Male would buy a Lime Green iPhone bumper??!?!?

technoB says:

Why don't they make a stainless steel bumper?

PhillyBoy says:

why cover up just the outside of the phone with an expensive bumper i want to protect the whole phone for that price lol

JFragoso says:

I already have issues with my iPhone. The led flash will not turn off. Tried everything and nothing seems to help. Apple said they would not be able to get me a replacement for about 8 days. Great!

Robert says:

Jax apple store replaced mine this past weekend for a " SIM" issue...is that you Jose?

junovela says:

@Darsktar Really? That's your argument for it being fake? Try harder.

Dan says:

Didn't want to use a case, but picked one up after my shiny new toy slipped out of my pocket and dinged the side already! On day 3! BooHooo

TMo says:

@Andrew Elliot My original iPhone takes amazing pictures actually

LCW says:

Are these plastic or rubber? If rubber, more cushiony, but also a PAIN to get out of a jean pocket quickly to answer a call... and rubbery material also stretches over time (at least the older incase rubber cases did)...

Noonan says:

i got an off brand 'iluv' bumper from att.

Sicilian says:

I am going to get a pink bummper b/c I love pink! Pink is the greatest color ever! In the whole wide world.

Parka says:

I have the iPhone 4 and I bought the "Bumper" and what I find hilarious is, it causes the same problem the first gen iPhone had and that is, it can't take a wide headphone jack I need to use the adaptor I bought in 2007 when I owned the first one. LOL ! it's true try it ! or you need to have a head phone jack made for 1st gen iPhone.

Michael says:

Got an Ifrogz red and black case for mine last Friday at Best Buy. My local Apple store didn't have anything the the phone but Best Buy had a few different types of cases as we as screen protectors. The ifrogz case was just like the one I had on my 3G. It covers the sides as well as the back.

LaurentD says:

Someone mention getting a clear bumper on eBay. I find only cases, with a back protection, not really like the Apple's one. Anybody has any source?

kempis says:

I too think Apple should make a crystal clear bumper so we can show off the stainless steel, what a lack of forethought and planning especially since they made such a big deal out of the beautiful look and feel of the new 4 series stainless steel beauties. I too am holding out for 32g in WHITE and I do hope they can iron out all the kinks before releasing. I will just put up with my old 32g white 3g, I don't even have the 's' version.
Feel bad for you Dan getting a bump on your new iphone OUCH!.....at least they have a bumper for your new phone bump

Mark says:

Just got my colored bumpers from apple.com, I ordered the blue and the orange (I had to order 2 for the free shipping, will return one). A little disappointed with the colors, the blue is a little to baby blue for a grown up and the orange reminds me of halloween. I wish I would have ordered the green one instead.

They dont look quite as good on the black iphone as it does from the picture of the them on the white iphone. I wish I would have ordered the green one instead.
