First batch of Apple bumpers now shipping
Apple iPhone 4 users, if your device is still in the throes of the dreaded "death-grip" and you've been dropping signal bars left and right, don't worry. It seems that the first batch of free bumpers from Apple have shipped and some iPhone 4 owners have received e-mailed confirmation from the Apple Store that their bumper is on the way.

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.

I was at the paul mccartney concert last night and my uncle and his iphone 4 couldnt get any signal and when he held it up he got 1x but no 3g. So he asked me to use my droid x and instantly i pulled up the set list then sent a picture message of it to my mom. Then called her holding it with my right hand and switched to my left hand and took a nice sip of my beer with ever so sweet defeat of the iphone war while listening to great jams in nashville tennessee. I love my droid x and paul mccartney. :)

@dsg_cobra: I am sorry, and I don't mean to correct you, but some clarification might be nice. You said the iPhone got 1x... you mean bar, or are you talking CDMA terms? If you are really referring to"1x", then you have no idea what the hell you are talking about, or you are bold-face-lying. I don't mean to come off as a dick, but a little clarification would make a lot more sense. Thanks!

DSG's statement seems kind of made up - the iphone 4 not getting a siganl could mean no towers for AT&T in that area and not just because it is an iphone 4 - I swear the anti-iphone posters out there are just as bad as people who love their iphone (not all, of course). People call them iSHEEP, or iLEMMINGS, but some of you anti-iphoners are just as bad in a different way.

I bet iPhone 4 outsells Droid X by a 3 to 1 margin in Q3.

Okay. I am only going to say this once. If you are an app freak - like myself - iPhone 4 is still the best there is. If not - Android is better at everything else. I think this should make everyone happy. =)

I am an app freak, but did not want the iphone - I have 150 apps on my captivate.....and counting

Thats nice. But I am also an app freak. And I heard that many of the Android apps are useless. I am not saying that there are no useless apps on the iPhone - there probably are. But I have also downloaded more than 150 apps to iTunes - and from their descriptions and screenshots - all are at least marginally useful. Many of them are games btw.

im sure iphone will outsale droid x by this margin but you have to consider how many countries the iphone is in? now compare iphone 4 to droid x in the U.S sales only and TOTALLY different margin there buddy. :)

I don't know about anybody else, But I would be mad if I had to use a case just for my phone to make a call. I mean, I never used the phone, but if the problem is really as bad as everyone is saying, why keep it? I would return the phone in a heartbeat. I was planning on getting an Iphone, but until this problem is REALLY fixed, I'll just stick with my blackberry.
