IPHONE 4 - Free Apple Bumpers in the UK!!

Free Apple Bumpers in the UK!!

**UPDATED - on the news today - APPLE offering free protective bumpers to Iphone4 users**

Apparently, according to a BBC 5Live interview a few weeks ago, iPhone 4 users who go to the Apple store to complain about the 'left hand lost signal phenomenon' are being given a free Apple Bumper to alleviate the problem.

Post on this thread if you have success in getting one.

I did wonder when first seeing the bumper exactly why it had been designed to only protect the edge. And, AFAIK, it's the first time Apple have offered a 'case' for sale with a device.

This suggests that Apple was pre-empting a known problem.

These bumpers retail for £25, so are not at all bad for free

I am reposting a deal that I originally shared on 26th June and got EXPIRED - well its now finally confirmed!!!!

Isn't this for the MISC or FREEBIES section?

What they said was yes you can put the bumper on but you lose the style of the phone because
you cover the stainless band and thats part of what you bought the phone for in the first place
if it was me if it dont work get your money back

I wonder how it works for those on contract phones if they wanted a refund for the handset? I presume they would be offered an alternative phone

You taking bets?

They'll just try to palm people off with big rubber cases. Stick to your guns!

They are offering some type of cases,they will not necessarily be bumpers as they cant produce enough

This.

Let's cover up a problem which should have NEVER happened in the first place by giving away free stuff.

Typical, you would have thought that a company with a room which cost $100 million which can Accurately judge a signal of a mobile device WOULD USE THE BLOODY THING!

This. It's pathetic the way Apple are handling this. There is a problem, it should be fixed instead of palming people off with some cheap ugly piece of rubber/temporary measure. It'll totally ruin the asthetics of it.

It's like buying a Luis Vuitton Bag for your wife only to find that they haven't sewing it together properly and theres a big hole in the bottom, then LV anouncing that they are giving all owners a roll of gaffer tape to "fix" the hole so it will "work" again. Typical Apple arrogance.

I'm not sure what you guys want. You can get a refund or a case. They almost certainly will fix it, but that can't be done on such a quick turnaround. What did you expect them to do?

Apparently there's still a waiting list for the phone at the london store (source: BBC News @10:00)...
Seems crazy after this death-grip problem has been in all the press - that people still want it !!

Supermod

... didn't Apple also show that this problem is rife amongst smart-phones?!

I would expect them to do what any reasonable big coporate company to do and recall them and FIX them. It just goes to show how much they care about their customers. They only offered the refund part to look better but they know how the die hard Apple fans would rather have a faulty phone than no phone at all (Kind of like how the MJ concert ticket refunds, they gave people a choice to refund but many fans kept them).
