Apple Launches iPhone 4 Case Program; Releases iPhone App To Apply For Free Bumper or Case

iPhone 4 Case Program

We reported yesterday that Apple had started refunding for iPhone 4 bumpers that were purchased on Apple’s online store.

Apple has just launched the iPhone 4 case program and has released an iPhone app that lets customers apply for their free iPhone 4 bumper case.

Apple had announced at the special press conference held last week that it will give free cases to all iPhone 4 customers to address concerns raised by iPhone 4 users about its antenna issue.

Here is a description of the iPhone app that users can use to apply for free bumper or case:

If you are experiencing reception issues with your iPhone 4, 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.

Please note that you must apply for the iPhone 4 case program within 30 days of purchasing iPhone 4. So if you have purchased iPhone 4 before July 23, 2010 then you must apply no later than August 22, 2010. To qualify for this program, you must purchase your iPhone 4 by September 30, 2010.

As mentioned earlier, Apple has already started refunding for iPhone 4 bumper case for credit card customers. If you had paid with cash, check or gift card at retail stores then you will need to take the receipt to the Apple Store to get a refund.

Our readers who have applied for their free iPhone 4 bumper or case are reporting that it will take 3 to 5 weeks to deliver it.

Please do let us know your experience while applying for your free bumper or case or getting the refund.

Thanks everyone for the tip.
