hm... my dad is really interested in buying an iphone 4 as well. i have had mine since launch day and i love it but the reception issue is a problem. im used to it now but before i had to consciously not touch that one bit on the phone.

im just wondering if the date 30th of sept will affect anythign... does anyone think apple will release some hardware revision where there is better reception? because it does seem odd that they arent giving out free cases anymore...

so my question is what advice should i give him?

i read somewhere that you'll still be able to request the free cases if you believe the reception issue is a problem ... it's just that they won't be handing them out on mass like they are now ... i forget where it was though ....

"A new Apple statement has clarified that owners of new iPhones purchased after that date will still be eligible for a Bumper, but that they will have to request one directly from AppleCare. In other words, it?s just the no-questions-asked part of the policy that is changing."
