Wow, as expected... free case or bumper.

 

What did you really think was going to happen? $300 rebates? LOL

 

Just return the phone if you are one of the .55% who just cannot get over the antenna thing.

 

So now I will have three cases for mine. Sweet Smiley Happy

Hey he said it if you dont like the phone within 30 days you can return it.  That's more than enough time to figure out if you can deal with the phone or not.  You can use it and if it's an issue return it and wait til next year to get an iphone with a smarter style.  That's what I may do.  I think #5 is my lucky number.  I have never had one.  I can go back to my crappy samsung and wait a year if the issue is really that bad that it drives me bananas.

You do realize that while Apple designed the iPhone 4 that they aren't the ones actually building the units, right?  Apple engineers working on a solution to the problem doesn't slow the Chinese factory building the units down at all.

uhh he said within 30 days of PURCHASE. so ppl who bought it in june/july/early august are not going tobe able to return the phones no matter what.

Re: Free bumpers for all iPhone 4 users...from Jobs and the conference

So here's the options, get a free case or bumper, get refunded if you already bought one or return it within 30 days.  Sounds good to me. So let's hope all the whining stops because those are your 3 options, that's it. They aren't doing a recall.  Jobs is saying that all smart phones have the antenna issues.  They aren't going to fix the phones. So let's stop whining about it. Most people are not having any issues.

Because the press are mostly a bunch of fools whose only motivation is to get readers...they don't really care about information.  "Don't bore me with facts...give me the bloody dirt!"  That's what "jouurnalism" has become these days.

yeah but everyone has a chance of returning it RIGHT NOW if they are unhappy.  June people are still within the 30 days and they should know by now if they want to return or not.

I see.  But why would they have kept their phone past the 30 days anyways if they hated it?

Bummer. I bought mine at an Apple store on release day.  They had stacks of bumpers sitting next to the stacks of iPhones, though I doubt they lasted out the day...

Re: Free bumpers for all iPhone 4 users...from Jobs and the conference

Now here's the $64,000 question--will there be plenty of bumpers to go around for the millions of folks who already have an iPhone 4...or will there be a backorder for these as well?

 

Here's a radical thought--how about those folks who claim that they don't have any antenna issues on their iPhone 4 not be entitled to a FREE bumper?  After all, Apple is doing so (free bumper) as a way of addressing the antenna issue, so if you aren't experiencing the antenna issue...then why would you need to take Apple up on their free bumper offer in the first place?

Are you just assuming this, or have you gotten official word from Apple or AT&T on this?  Doesn't seem reasonable to me that your return window can start before you have the product in your hand.

 

Fortunately I just reserved one, so my receipt is dated 6/24.  Not that I have any interest in returning it...
