So All I Got To Do Is Call Or Go In And Say I Want A Free Bumper ?

That was a pretty by the numbers press conference with the most obvious outcome. That said, being able to choose from a number of case rather than just the bumper is pretty awesome.

IT starts the end of next week. You have to sign up online and they will send one to you. NOT everyone will get bumpers but they will have different ones for you to choose from. NO ONE will be allowed an in-store pick up. I say go out and buy one and let apple refund your money back later.

Well at least if you are not satisfied you can return it and not pay a 10% restocking fee and also get a refund from AT&T on your contract if you signed a new two year contract."To unpathed waters, undreamed shores." -- William Shakespeare

Exactlly!!! and the sad thing is some don't even own the phone and the rest of people crying "I hate cases" will not return it... If apple shipped every iPhone with the bumpers already on and someone took it off and got a death grip it would be end of story... People asked for a fix they did and also offered a full refund... What will people (some) say?!?! bla bla bla bla bla cry cry cry cry.... Realllly getting old... I say return the damn thing get a different phone and MOVE on....
You buy a car and get a lemon do you keep it or return it? RETARDS!!!!

This isn't about how many folks have or have not called Applecare. No one is calling because SJobs put out an email to all stores not to do anything about it. Plus it is in such high demand that everyone is like well they won't replace it they won't do anything so I will just live with the problem. Start a post so that everyone with this issue starts calling Applecare then we can see his less than 1% go up.
Easy fix free bumpers, I told you this is why this accessory was endorsed at the WWDC. Well if I had the phone it would be in an Otter Box case anyway. But I still am not happy with the BS stats and the easy way out that they took.
Either way when the time comes I guess I will buy a darn iPhone 4 anyway.

Some of you people are not to bright. Read the thru this thread and you would know how to get a free case. And there not all going to be bumpers. They are going to give you a choice.

Do you really think this is a bait for a JB release? I can understand your reasoning but that seems a little extreme. But I know that Apple can be pretty hardcore about stuff like this.
But like I thought on first impulse, I hope that 4.01 is the only update that will be out for a while and that a JB is released, especially a spirited version for new bootrom 3GS 4.0 users.

How about all the people that already bought 3rd party cases? And how about all those 3rd party companies that make cases who are not affiliated with Apple (in other words, won't be "free")?
EDIT: Steve-o just answered my question. Sounds pretty arrogant
Will the refund include third party cases?
A: There's a very small number of third party cases out there. So no.
Q: Well it's interesting, there aren't any cases out there, and it's hard to get cases now. If the third party case buyers can produce a receipt, why not give them one?
Steve: It's really simple, if we tell people what our next product is, they stop buying our current products. Sometimes websites buy stolen property and they get out there... and case makers have a history of showing off their new cases for our new products. The case vendors haven't had a history of helping to keep our work under wraps.If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

Isn't it funny how he first says that 0.55% complained about this (which means roughly 15,000 of the 3M phones), but then says that they cannot possibly build enough bumpers to cover everyone who will be applying for it?If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

i felt like Steve was a little child talking. Him blaming other cell phones for also having the same problems was like my children trying to push blame on their siblings instead of owning up to what they do. The only difference is that my kids are in 3rd grade and not a CEO of a major company.
And by the way how many PhD's does it take to change a light bulb. Evidently 18 if they work for Apple.

I'm not buying the jailbait theory this time, they'll have to take their time with it, hope someone askes about the sensors in detail
