Apple should gave a free bumper inside the iphone 4 box, the same way nintendo wii gave protectors because people were complaining about throwing away and damaging the wii motes. If they had do that at the beginning most of the people would use the bumper since the beginning and less people would notice the reception problem. My personal and humble opinion.

My hats go off to all the companies trying to find solutions to the Apple issue of iPhones shorting out. Nice to know some people out there are hearing the customers issues and providing solutions for them. (Hint for you Apple) Now my sarcastic message: You see though, I think Apple did this to the iPhone on purpose so that they can help in aiding to other companies that make cases, allowing these companies to get in on the "cash band wagon" of the iPhone release. I think that was very heart felt and sweet of Apple to do!

Ok well I understand the problem some people are having. I don't understand why people wouldn't want to have a phone case to protect they're phone when dropped. We all know we will drop our phone and maybe it's just me I prefer to be safe not sorry. So just buy a damn case and stop F'ing crying already. Oh wait you can return the phone and problem solved. Just remember you don't have much time to decide to keep or return.

isnt this almost the same as the iphone bumpers? maybe apple already knew about this antenna problem hence the production of these bumpers. maybe they were late in figuring this flaw out and the easiest/cheapest solution was to produce these sorry excuse for protection bumpers

"solution" doesn't work!

So really all this problem adds up to is that if you "short" out the two different antennas with your hand (and if you push on the stainless steel tighter, you decrease the resistance further), then all you need is an "insulator" to prevent the contact. I'd think a small piece of Scotch Tape would do the trick over that left lower gap. Not $9.99, but still a 3M product !
