Free Cases Distribution by Apple Commences

steve_jobs_iphone4Technology gadget maker giant Apple has already started giving away free bumpers or cases for owners of iPhone 4 to help address the death grip antenna issue that has been bugging the company for weeks now.

The free case distribution was announced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a press conference last week. However, he created a new issue when he said in the conference that the antenna problem is a universal situation. This prompted other phone makers to answer back by saying that Apple should stand by its designs and should not be dragging them to their problem.

For those who would be availing, here are the steps to avail of the free case:

  1. Download the iPhone 4 Case Program application from the App Store.
  2. Launch the application on the iPhone 4 and sign in to iTunes Store.
  3. Select bumper or case.

Anyone who purchased the smartphone prior to today  must get the application and the bumper by August 22. For future buyers until September 30th, the case should be availed within 30 days from the purchase time.

Apple and its partner carrier, AT&T, will give refunds to anyone who previously bought a bumper or case from their sales outlets.
