    Good point. I hope that this can actually be fixed with an update. Although I'm on T-Mobile and needing my 3GS unlocked, I can relate to the i4 users. Hated all of the problems that came with my HD2 that should have functioned perfectly right out of the box.

    If Steve thinks cases are such a great fix, why didn't he just superglue a cheap plastic shell to every iPhone 4 and call it good?

    I updated my iPhone 4, I have an iFrogz case (best in the biz) and I have not dropped a call. Really, I wasn't dropping calls before then. Sooooo, lets get to JB this baby please?????? I need a work around for 3G and FaceTime so we can have more use of the thing. Shouldn't use as much data as the tethering..

    The phone has been out for 22 days. Less than a month. To have expected anything else at this point in time is ludicrous. Honestly, the bumper fix is the ONLY card they could realistically play.

    They already said that they'll keep researching closely on the antenna. I've said it before, but revisions like this as obvious as they may be take months at a minimum to get to the consumer. Halting current production, delayed international release dates, coming with the fix in such a small timeframe and finally recalling replacing the existing 3 million phones would not only be impossible, it's cost would be in the billions.

    Today Apple took the issue head on, dances somewhat around it while admitting that there is something going on. They also provided you with the only solution they could honestly give while giving you options within it (not just bumpers for free).

    The situation sucks, the death grip is very real, but Apple like any corporation is a huge machine. You can't just stop it, apple a fix, and resume. These fixes will take time.

    I honestly don't expect to see a hardware fix until the next iPhone and we'll have to ride this year out with bumpers or iPhone-less.

    I think the case better than a bumper is the Griffin REVEAL. Its just like the bumper except it has a clear back.

    he kept referring to the "data" and how it shows only .55% of the phones have been returned... maybe thats because everyone was waiting to see what he was going to do about this situation... i LOVE the iphone.. and i WANT it.. and i want it to WORK out of the box... and not wait 22 days for acknowledgment of the issue... the sad part is is i feel almost stuck.. i want the latest shiny phone with all the bells and whistles... but what am i to do... get a refund?... the problem with that is that all the other new shiny phones are sold out too!!! (HTC EVO, DROID X) FML!

    In the time you took to call AplleCare you could have bothered to read past the title of the thread and discover that the free bumper/cases application will be on their website starting LATE NEXT WEEK.

    It's also been posted like 6 times so far.

    Yay... free bumpers... oh wait... :/

    "iPhone 4 Bumpers are currently unavailable for sale.

    Apple will offer a free iPhone 4 Bumper or other select cases to iPhone 4 customers. Details on how to order a free Bumper or case will be available soon on apple.com.

    Made of durable rubber and molded plastic, the two-tone iPhone 4 Bumper fits snugly around the edges of your iPhone 4 and gives it a splash of color. It’s a fun and unique way to personalize your iPhone 4."


    I tried to buy one. I was able to add it to my cart but when I tried to complete the purchase I got that message.

    I find this very acceptable, anyone with an Iphone without a case is taking a big gamble anyways. Now I get a refund for the case I want. Better IMO than a free bumper which I would not use.
