iPhone 4 Case Program LIVE
You download an iPhone 4 Case Program app from the App Store and launch the app on your phone using your iTunes Store account or Apple ID. You then select your bumper or case. Apple will check the "IMEI" (International Mobile Equipment Identity) and serial number to verify you have an iPhone 4.

In addition to Apple's own bumpers, you can choose cases from Incase, Belkin, Griffin and Speck; the cases ship in 3 to 5 weeks.

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

If you already bought a bumper from Apple, you're eligible for a full refund including taxes and shipping fees. If you bought the bumper by credit card, Apple says it's already refunded your account, though it may take a full billing cycle for the refund to appear. If you paid cash, check or used a gift card at an Apple Retail Store, you must return to the store with your receipt by Sept 30. If you bought it from an AT&T store, head here for a rebate coupon you must fill out and mail.


edit *Iphone 4 is having alot of antenna issues..

Cue the Droid/iPhone arguments.

I just watched the keynote from WWDC.  Looks amazing.

Highlights:

- Records HD (720p)
- Forward facing camera
- Facetime - Video Conferencing (WiFi only)
- 40% more battery time
- "retina" display, incredible.
- Slimmest smartphone on the market

Was just following the liveblog coverage of this event earlier.  Again, I stay away from apple products in traditional desktop/laptop compuing, but I'm pretty excited for this.  The new gyroscope is going to be great.  New hardware, and in particular, sensors, always bring out the best in creative app design.

Gizmodo states that if your AT&T contract ends in 2010 then you can get the iPhone 4 for 199/299 bucks.

i've got the 3gs so im just gona wait till os4 comes out then im just gona rock that, cant see there being a big enough difference in the iphone 4 compared to the 3gs to be worth £450 on a new phone, specially when i don't even have mine a year.

AT&T is doing a deal where if you upgrade from an older iphone version, you can basically renew it and get the iPhone 4 pricing before your contract technically expires.  This is assuming you already have an iphone right now.  If not, tough luck.

I was just looking at it before i can here and it looks way sweet. I really want to buy one but I don't want to pay the extra $30ish a month for a data play, so i can play on a phone. I know once I have data I can never go back and not have it.

you dont go over. problem solved. Actually tho: they send you text messages when your running out of data and it you do run out of data and keep using it you call att and upgrade your plan for tha month if your charges go above 30$. They backtrak the month so it looks like you had the 25-30$ plan since the beginning therfor avoiding the massive fees.

Thanks for the posts guys. Way to keep everyone up to speed. New Iphone or not, Iphone OS4 promises to be killer. Can't wait to get that Netflix app that's coming out this summer. Downloading movies on the go, on your phone, while waiting for the plane to take off, PRICELESS! Big smile

I hate the way Apple does business, but I like how they push the market.  Here's to hoping I can enjoy the new iPhone 4 perks on a WebOS or Android phone in a year or two.

My only problem with apple is this near cultish mental state that dictates anything with a little apple on it is somehow superior to everything else in the world. Also not a big fan of The Steve's ideas about "freedom" in technology...

The new data usage plan shouldn't be a big deal as thy claim only 4% of iPhone users exceed 1GB of usage per month, however I can see this being rather limiting later on down the line. I wonder if the data usage counts wifi
or only 3G. It seems like a ploy to control the already overwhelmed ATT 3G network, reach customers
who want the phone w/o spending as much, and gaining revenue through overages.

This is gonna be a real drag for Slingbox users if the data usage limit also applies to WIFI. No worries fo existing iPhone users as their unlimited usage plans will be grandfather'd over w/contract renuals.
When in doubt eat trout.

I'm much more excited about the new data plans than the phone.  I've never used more than 200 Mbs in a month so I'm switching to the cheaper plan and saving $15 every month.
 
The data usage only counts usage over the celluar network, so WiFi usage does NOT count.

Data Usage is 3g data usage.

I think the plans merits are going to be determined by what kind of data requirements the new phone has. Full HD Video? Great - but if you're sharing that, that's going to be a sizable upload. With greater battery life - developers might come up with more data-intensive applications and whatnot as well.
I look at it this way - I don't use my droid for anything super crazy - but because of the all the data-centric applications that run - I go over 1gb easily ever month. I hit 1/2 gb just setting the thing up, getting emails and whatnot downloaded and so forth. These phones tend to be more centered on data-enabled functionality though.

Verizon actually went the exact opposite route recently - and required anyone with a smart phone to get the $30/month unlimited data plan. The reason - people were going over their limits and racking up huge data bills.

I'm here for the gangbang....

The iPhone 4 looks pretty sweet.  The fact that At&T is dropping unlimited data is going to cause quite an uproar with a newer, faster phone that dreams more data.  Good luck AT&T.  See you at Verizon.
Yeah that's a rip stick.

I wouldn't expect to see that until all the networks get closer in terms of capabilities/capacity.

You're also not going to see true competition until this idea of carrier exclusivity for phones goes away.  Right now the carriers dictate the market as a result of these two things. Once network capacities average out from company to company, and manufacturers stop agreeing to these exclusive carrier deals - then you'll see things shift more in favor of the consumer.

Until then, just be prepared to get bent over.

True, but did your Nokia have Dual cameras and dual mics (with noise suppressing functionality) that permitted FaceTime talk in HD quality. Not to mention the new Multi-Touch Retina Display. You probably should watch the new iPhone 4 video ad to understand that this, is a sweet function. 

Apple, may release stuff late but when they do "catch up", their product tends to be better than their predecessors (most of the time). Only time will tell. Lets see what folks say after June 24th or July 14th (after all the usual early kinks are worked out). 

It'd be nice to see the iPhone on other networks though. Bet there'll be more iPhone converts, then, than let on.

True, but did your Nokia have Dual cameras and dual mics (with noise suppressing functionality) that permitted FaceTime talk in HD quality. Not to mention the new Multi-Touch Retina Display. You probably should watch the new iPhone 4 video ad to understand that this, is a sweet function. 

Apple, may release stuff late but when they do "catch up", their product tends to be better than their predecessors (most of the time). Only time will tell. Lets see what folks say after June 24th or July 14th (after all the usual early kinks are worked out). 

It'd be nice to see the iPhone on other networks though. Bet there'll be more iPhone converts, then, than let on. 

if apple is "catching up" then why do their products always end up better than the competition. You may hate apple as a company, by the way they practice business, or their products. but you can't deny that those products are well-designed, innovative, and something people will stand in line to buy. 

apple does not jump on bandwagons, they make sure that the products they release are actually decent before releasing them. take "cut, copy, paste". yes, many phones had them before the iPhone, and it took until the 3GS to implement, however, it is one of the simplest and easiest UI designs for "cut, copy, paste" on a touch phone ever. the blackberry UI by contrast, is complicated and a hassle. 
its the same with multi-tasking and some other features releasing on the iPhone 4. yes, many companies have had them for year, but as far as multi-tasking, apple made sure to develop a UI thats easy, and a method that didnt encumber the battery. the Palm OS while innovative, has horrible battery life (my friend is so annoyed that he's buying the larger battery which will add to the bulk and weight of his phone). 

as far as the carriers arguments....well, they all suck. they are all corporate powerhouses who love charging you 40$ for something that only costs them 4$. Yes, AT&T has bad coverage and crappy customer service. Verizon has horrible signal quality and no data/voice simultaneous usage. Sprints 4G while fast, is too small and drains the battery in half the time

in conclusion:
Apple= a company everyone loves to hate
Carriers= When we stop needing them, slavery will finally have been abolished

Why do I need to video conference somebody when I can pick up the freakin phone THAT I HAVE IN MY HAND?

Apple is great on selling shiny things that are long on style and short on substance, for a huge markup. Good for them - but even better for the ones who learn to ween themselves off the kool-aide, or who never drank it in the first place.

I'm here for the gangbang....
