Apple to Discontinue Free iPhone Bumper Case Program on September 30


We now know that the iPhone 4 antenna attenuation issue is even smaller than we originally thought. A small percentage of iPhone 4 users need a case, and we want to continue providing them a Bumper case for free. For everyone else, we are discontinuing the free case program on all iPhone 4s sold after September 30, 2010. We are also returning to our normal returns policy for all iPhone 4s sold after September 30. Users experiencing antenna issues should call AppleCare to request a free Bumper case.

In other words: if you’re having antenna problems, you can still get a free Apple Bumper, but they’re going to stop giving them out to everyone who buys an iPhone 4. (Via Jim Dalrymple.)
