How to get your free iPhone 4 case from Apple

Apple iPhone 4 “Antennagate” is actually not as big an issue as it was blown up to be. I’m not sure what you are finding but I find that you have to really cover the bottom left corner and press really hard for a couple minutes to experience the bars to go down. With that said the design problem still exists and that needs to be fixed by Apple. One way for a quick fix is to get yourself a free case. Steve Jobs announced that those who purchase the new iPhone 4 will get a free Bumper or a 3rd party approved case. To get yours you’ll have to go into the App Store and find the iPhone 4 Case Program App and install it. You can check out this link here and the official description in the App Store is as follows:

“If you are experiencing reception issues with your iPhone4, you are eligible to receive an iPhone 4 Bumper or other select third-party case from Apple at no charge. Download this free app onto your iPhone 4 and apply for your free Bumper or case.

Only iPhone 4 owners are eligible for this program. The app will check the IMEI and serial number to verify that you have an iPhone 4. Once eligibility is confirmed, you will be able to choose an iPhone 4 Bumper or other case. The Bumper or case will be shipped to you at no charge

All iPhone 4 purchases must be made by September 30, 2010, to qualify for this program. For iPhone 4 purchases made before July 23, 2010, you must apply no later than August 22, 2010; otherwise, you must apply within 30 days of your iPhone 4 purchase.”

Also, I grabbed some screenshots (they are also available in the app store). You can only get one case, but here’s a list: Apple Bumper, Belkin Shield Micra, Griffin Motif Diamond, Griffin Reveal Etch Black, Incase Snap Case Black, Incase Snap Case Clear, Speck Fitted Case Black, Speck PixelSkin HD Black. They will ship anywhere between 3-5 weeks.
