I've no experience myself but I guess this will bump your thread up again. From what I've heard, a lot of people are happy with the basic Apple 'bumper' but this obvously doesn't have front/back cover (just the edges). It's down to how much you want to wrap your phone in cotton wool and how accessible you want it. Personally, I don't use a case because it just makes using the phone more awkward but that's just me.

I hope someone else comes and gives you better advice. Have a nice weekend

I haven't ordered my free bumper. Don't think I will. I like the way the phone looks stock too much. I'll just deal without touching the antenna. I spent 20 dollars on a case the other day which had a black band around the side and a clear back so you could still see the logo on the back and the design and I still ended up not using it. 20 dollars wasted. I just love the way the phone looks and feels naked. I do have a screen protector though.

And I do put it in a pouch when I put it in my pocket so it doesn't get scratched up.

I got the clear case from Belkin. I like it because it does it's job of blocking the antenna area from being touched and is clear so I can still see the phone. It also protects the back which I like because I set my phone down on my desk a lot during the day and the case is beginning to show scratches instead of my phone. It is also easy to pop on and off for when I need to dock it.

Your 100% right those bumpers tear up the stainless steel band, But they seem to be the most popular iPhone 4 case available. You should see the insane amounts of money people are willing to pay for them.

I bought that one too but ended up taking it off. Still just like the phone better naked. I haven't had much of a problem not touching that spot.

Speck's PixelSkin HD case has been rated the top out of all the cases that were available since it is easy to put on, is stylish and is expensive if you buy it normally.

I use Saddleback Leather's pouch and throw it in my pocket. Use a larger version for my iPad. Great quality work.

I thought the free bumper case offer from Apple had expired now?
