Apple is giving everyone who buys an iPhone 4 a free bumper. Until you get a hold of yours, you might need something to keep your calls from dropping. Heck, you may even just like beautiful art on your phone, or have something against Apple's bumper cases. Perhaps, we just want to remember all of our favorite fixes for the iPhone 4's Death Grip.
This iPhone wrap is a raver's dream. Well, at least we imagine it is. According to the description, it's made from a high-quality five-year vinyl. Whatever that means. If anything, you won't have trouble finding your phone in the dark. That is, until it's out of "glow power."
Colorware is known for their top-notch work when it comes to repainting consumer electronics. They do iPods, iPads, MacBooks and now the iPhone 4. They are a little pricey, but their work is top-of-the-line and they will give your device the awesome paint scheme you desire.
Well, actually this is no longer the cheapest iPhone bumper available, but it may hold you over until you are able to score the free official bumper. This one consists of nothing more than a thick rubber band you can find at any office supply store. Heck, chances are you can ask your teacher or co-worker for one. Either way, it's simple and it fixes your reception issues.
GelaSkins are sylish, and come in a variety of prints. This is a not-so-permanent way to customize your iPhone 4. One of our favorite things about these skins? The manufacturer sold it as a way to fix antenna problems. Now that's smart marketing.
Who ever would have thought that what started out as a joke based on another joke Steve Jobs made about putting a Band-Ai–Uh, we mean an "adhesive bandage" on the antenna would become a hot new product? Categorize this under the "Why didn't we think of that?" file, because we've heard that it's selling like crazy.
Well, the ZAGGskin isn't quite as cool as GelaSkin's product line, but ZAGG does win our hearts for their invisibleSHIELD. The "sides only design" is good enough for us, and it doesn't intrude on the iPhone's design. It's minimal. All it does is offer some protection and keep your iPhone from dropping calls. This is probably the best choice for those of you who refuse to use iPhone cases, like iSmashPhone's very own editor. You know who you are.
Well, this sticker actually does the opposite of what it's supposed to do. It makes sure you don't have dropped calls or lost signal. Still, as the description says, it's a "great little conversation starter sure to get a laugh." It's not as cute as the Antenn-aid, and it doesn't come in a variety of colors, but unlike the Antenn-aid, this might actually still be in stock by the time you read this.
