Apple has released the plans for their iPhone 4 Case Program today. If you purchased an iPhone 4, you must download and install the app iPhone 4 Case Program from the Apple Store. Once you run the app, you must choose the case you want and the app will IMEI number to verify that you have an iPhone 4 and qualify for the offer.

If you didn't see the press conference last week by Steve Jobs, he announced that everyone that purchases an iPhone 4 up until September 30th, 2010 will receive a free bumper case or another approved case. This was on the heels of all the negative publicity surrounding the receptions problems of the iPhone 4 which was dubbed "antennagate" in the media.

Appart from Apples bumper cases, customers will be able to choose from cases by Belkin, Incase, Griffin and Speck. Unfortunately, the cases don't ship for 3-5 weeks. If you purchased your phone on July 23rd, you have until September 22 to apply for your case otherwise you must apply within 30 days of your purchase.

If you already bought a bumper (as I did on release day) then Apple says you should be receiving a refund of the purchase price. As a matter of fact, if you paid by credit card or debit card, Apple says they have already issued the refund although it may take one to two billing cycles for it to show up on your statement. If you paid cash, check or a gift card, you must fill out a rebate coupon located here (http://www.apple.com/iphone/case-program).

The iPhone 4 Case Program is estimated to cost Apple about $175 million.

Update:
I received this email today that my refund has been processed. :cool:

I ordered the Speck Pixel HD, but it really doesn't matter much. Perhaps after 4-6 weeks, it'll be a nice surprise to see it at my doorstep.
