First batch of Apple bumpers now shippingThis article contains unofficial information.
If you haven't yet taken advantage of Apple's offer, you can still receive a free bumper or case. As we reported, the process is simple. Download the iPhone 4 Case Program app from the App Store. If you purchased your handset before July 23rd, you must request the case by August 22nd. If you bought your iPhone 4 after last Friday, you have 30 days from the date of your purchase to make a selection from the choice of bumpers or cases. Phones bought after September 30th will not qualify for a free bumper/case. If you purchased your own bumper from Apple before the program was announced, you are not out of luck as Apple will give you a refund. And once you have received the bumper or case, you should be able to hold your new iPhone 4 any way you heart desires without dropping calls or losing signal bars. You have to love it, a low tech solution to a high tech problem.
