Apple giving away free cases to fix iPhone 4 reception problem

Apple announced today that they will be giving away free cases to all customers with an iPhone 4, due to the antenna issues.

Apple said they will give a free case to all customers who purchased the iPhone 4 before September 30, 2010, or will issue a refund if customers already purchased a bumper. The cases will vary from Apple's own bumper cases to others sourced from third party manufacturers, because Apple are unable to make enough bumpers in this quarter. Sadly, Apple will not be issuing a hardware fix for customers, but instead remedy the situation with a free case during their press conference.

Users will need to register through the Apple website with their address and information to receive their free case. The website is expected to go live at the end of next week.

Anyone who is still unhappy about this, may return their undamaged iPhone 4 to any Apple Store within 30 days of purchase for a full refund.

So there is the answer everyone has been waiting 22 days for, a free case for their phone.
