Following on from Apple’s press conference last week, details have now been released on how to order your bumper or a case – and yes, there is an App for that!
If you haven’t seen the press conference, or you have been asleep for the past week, you can watch it here: http://www.apple.com/uk/apple-events/july-2010/ although it’s not really worth bothering with.
Apparently all phones have this problem, its not really an Apple problem and the iPhone 4 only drops 1% more calls than the iPhone 3GS. Um, sorry? The brand new iPhone actually performs worse than the previous model? Don’t get me started on that, but when the iPhone 4 works, it works well.
What Apple said was that it would give all iPhone 4 customers a free bumper or case starting today. Having a bumper or case on the iPhone 4 will reduce the signal problem.
So today being that day, Apple have released an iPhone 4 app to order the bumper or case. Yes, that is right, there is an app for that!
So, if you have an iPhone 4, go get the iPhone 4 Case Program app and install it.
Run it from your iPhone 4 and then click Get Started.
Scroll through the very short list of one bumper and a few cases.
Select one to learn more about it – you can even look at a photo gallery.
You then place the order through the app and get the usual 3-5 weeks shipping information which is becoming the norm for Apple these days.
So, for those suffering with the problem you don’t yet have a case, its another 3 – 5 week delay, and to be honest the cases don’t look that great.
I already purchase one from Amazon last week as I really didn’t want to wait.
I also hear that Apple are also automatically refunding customers who purchased the bumper from the Apple Store.
So do you have an iPhone 4? Have you had problems? Let us know! And Dave, if you are reading this, you don’t have to tell us, we already know!
