Need to order your free Apple iPhone 4 case? There's an app for that

Apple's solution to their antenna design flaw is to give people a case rather than fix the problem. They kicked off their free case program today.

Apple's ridiculous solution to the iPhone 4 antenna design failure is to give buyers a free case. Today, Apple launched this free case program with an application (iTunes link) that you install on your iPhone 4. I understand there are apps for everything, but an application to order your free case, give me a break. How about releasing a phone that has been tested first and doesn't show reception failure when you hold a phone as expected?

Per the Apple site, these are the steps to order your free case:

1. Download the iPhone 4 Case Program app from the App Store. 2. Launch the app on your iPhone 4 and sign in using your iTunes Store account or Apple ID. 3. Select your Bumper or case.

For iPhone 4 purchases made before July 23, 2010, you must apply no later than August 22, 2010; otherwise, you must apply within 30 days of your iPhone 4 purchase. To qualify for this program, you must purchase your iPhone 4 by September 30, 2010.

If you already bought a bumper case then they have instructions on the site explaining how you can get your refund too.

I never bought the iPhone 4 and that had to do with the AT&T lock-in, Steve Jobs' overwhelming arrogance, and Apple's statements about the antenna, proximity sensor, and other issues with the flawed design. I do think it has some great features and functions, but now that a Samsung Gravity S device, the Captivate, is out on AT&T I think AT&T customers finally have another smartphone option that is better than the iPhone 4.
