Apple launches free bumper program for faulty iPhone 4

Making good on its promise last week, Apple is now beginning to accept orders for free iPhone 4 bumper cases, but you have to submit them through an app on your iPhone 4.

There is a new app in the App Store called “iPhone 4 Case Program.” It prompts users to sign in with their Apple ID, which will verify that they have an iPhone 4, and from there it’s a piece of cake: choose your color and manufacturer and it’ll be on its way.

Apple says it will take three to five weeks to send out the cases.

For those who purchased a bumper in the draconian “no free bumper case!” days, anyone who bought it with a credit card on or an Apple Store will receive (and might have already received) a refund automatically.

Those who bought a case from the Apple Store with a cash, check, or gift card can take their original receipt into the store to get an immediate refund. If you used a gift card on Apple’s website, a new gift card will be sent out.

Anyone who purchased a case from an AT&T store will have the most difficult time. Those people need to fill out a special rebate form, include a copy of the receipt, mail it in and wait.

Although the offer of a free case to reduce the antenna signal problems was long overdue, at least now that it is here, Apple is making it relatively painless for everyone.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.

    A lot of of what you articulate is astonishingly appropriate and that makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This article really did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific topic goes. Nonetheless at this time there is one position I am not really too cozy with so while I try to reconcile that with the actual core theme of your issue, let me observe just what the rest of your readers have to point out.Nicely done.
