Is the Apple store the only place to buy the iP4 bumper? (aside from eBay)

Or ordering one online via Apple, yes.

I've got a couple which I hate (colour: black), and would love to unload, if people can live without the packaging.

I got a couple in package. PM me! There are also some on Craigslist and Kijiji.

Why do you hate them?

They're a) ugly b) sticky c) bulky d) kill the aesthetic that makes the iPhone 4 an iPhone 4 in the first place.

Yeah, me too.. I've got a black one that came with mine when I bought it, but I prefer my SGP vintage case instead. Been trying to sell it for $20 shipped with no luck. Kinda surprising considering they sell for $30+tax.

Hmmm..

Well, I really don't know any case that doesn't 'kill the aesthetic'... most cover the entire back and sides.

I do agree that a 'sticky' case is annoying when pulling it out of ones pocket,... the only plus is that it'll not slide off a slippery surface easily.

I have 3 cases, none of which I'm happy with.

I'm gonna try the bumper and see how it goes.

I got a free one but don't like how it hides the metallic part.
Also have a look on eBay.
There are some cheaper ($2!) knock-offs with very good reviews.

I bought a sena pouch case for mine. Protects it in my pocket and when taking it in and out while allowing me to use the phone as intended when handling it.
