iPhone 4 free case program ends September 30

iPhone 4 antenna issues got you down? There’s an app for that — but only until September 30. Apple has reevaluated the program, and has decided to discontinue it stating that ‘the iPhone 4 antenna attenuation issue is even smaller than we originally thought.’ I have to agree, although it is a very real, easily reproducible phenomenon. In practice, I have yet to experience any dropped calls or diminished data speeds in using the iPhone 4 as is. I’ve also noticed that the majority of people I have seen with the phone don’t use a case — and seem perfectly happy with it.

Even still, I’m not one to turn down a free Bumper and neither should you. Other options exist if Apple’s ‘uncase’ is not to your liking. If you’re interested, you can download Apple’s case program app in the App Store, but come October 1, you’ll have to direct antenna-related inquiries to AppleCare — they’ll still be providing free cases for those with issues. The return policy reverts to normal on the first as well.
