I didn't here him say free shipping on cases. I wonder if they will take informercial approach. Make the money in shipping. We all know the bumpers can't cost more the a dollar to mass produce. Couple bucks to ship. So if shipping was like $4.99 or more he really didn't give anything away. Will be interesting.

Like I said in my previous post, I spoke to an apple rep who then spoke to his supervisor and he told me YES YOU CAN GET A BUMPER FOR FREE, BUT IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THE BUMPERS OR DO NOT WANT ONE YOU CAN CHOOSE ANY CASE THAT THEY HAVE LISTED IN THE FIX FOR THE RECEPTION

if anyone has ever taken statistics....it ALL can be skewed. You can make any number look the way you want. Ask the right group (or demographics) of ppl to get the stats in your favor.

MODMYI ?? can we just start a post on "who likes their new iPhone" ??
I'm sure are plenty of other sites that "bash" apple and all of their products.. I thought this one was to praise and discuss modding our beloved i-devices??

I love my iPhone 4 even withour a jailbreak! I have signal problems but guess what!? I bought a bumper from the apple store and problem solved. I also have the sensor issue but the fix is coming in an update...problem fixed! I love the iPhone 4! iPhone 4...where amazing happens!

Funny, Mr Jobs didnt seem to happy to make his consumers happy lol!
07-16-2010, 04:17 PM #213Agreed. You are coming here to bash people that don't have problems, while complaining about people who agree with Apple that not all users are affected. They've extended an offer to give you a case to fix the problem. Either take the case, or return the phone. Not. That. Hard.

I got my free bumper earlier today but I have to say, it does take away from overall aesthetics. With the bumper on my phone, it will not fit into my truck dock mount or my home sound system dock. I think I might stick with my ifrogz case or go naked with it.
Sorry for the crappy pics, they are from my old 3GS

If your phone doesn't work good, sorry to hear that. Either take the free case, keep the phone and continue to complain, return it, and go away. You're complaining about people agree with Apple and calling them arrogant. In fact, you're do the exact same thing. We disagree that this wasn't acceptable. You can stay, or walk away and find another easy avenue (iPod Touch) to use your apps.

Steve appeared genuinely perplexed up there. He questioned why the press didn't just give him the benefit of the doubt, without question. He just doesn't understand what all the fuss is about. This is the first time any significant portion of the user base loudly rejected something Steve foisted upon them, and he doesn't know how to handle it.
Steve kept saying Apple LOVES its customers.
Well of course they do. Why wouldn't they? The typical Apple customer is the ultimate customer, and any company can only dream about having customers like them.
Typically Apple fanboy customers buy, and rave about, anything Steve provides them. Who cares if it works properly, or how artificially limited it is by the whims of what Steve says you can, and can't, do with his products. And he truely believes they are HIS products, not yours. God forbid that you would try to use what you purchased as you see fit, verses how Steve decided you should.
All companies would love to have customers that they could repeatedly abuse, denegrade, overcharge for the priviledge, and then have them still come back for more.

Cases are annoying, I dont want a case!!! Who wants to have to take it out of the case every time you want to stick it in a dock or use pretty much any accessory with it? I purchased one of those RF remotes for it, I guess I have to now choose from either using it as a remote or as a phone, cant do both...

Take the bumper or return the phone. Honestly this should all go away. I can't get a good read on whether I should upgrade my 3GS because of all the imbeciles complaining (SUING?!?) Apple because their latest offering isn't... Well, better, basically. This is asanine. You have no grounds to complain when there's no restock fee. The class action suit has no legs (which is why apple removed the restock fee). Suck it up or switch to a lesser phone (take your pick... EVO, Droid X) but either way please stop with all the inane noise that obscures a read on how good the iPhone 4 really is. God don't you sheep realize that the media is leading you by the nose? Enjoy your top-of-the-line smartphone already.
