Less than 3 Weeks Left to Claim Your Free iPhone 4 Case

Paul Lilly

To those of you who pledge allegiance to the united iPhone 4 owners club of America, here's a reminder that you have until September 30, 2010 to claim your Apple provided case to help aid your smartphone's signal when you insist on holding the thing wrong -- you know, like a cell phone.

September 30th is the same date Steve Jobs first quoted when the announcement was initially made, adding that Apple would "evaluate" whether an extension would be necessary or not. According to a statement on Apple's website, it appears the Cupertino company has come to a decision , and that's to stick with the original cutoff date. After that, you're just going to have to start holding your iPhone correctly, or get an Android device.

"A small percentage of iPhone 4 users need a case, and we wan to continue providing them a Bumper case for free," Apple said in a statement. "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."

Have any of you taken Apple up on this offer, and if so, did the case help?
