    Just wondering if anyone is still using the free case that Apple offered after the antenna gate issue.

    You mean do I respond to overblown media hysteria and people who don't really understand how cell phones work? No, not really.

    bought probably 7 cases plus the free bumpers.
    I simply purchased a squaretrade warranty and now running naked, loving it.

    If you call apple they will still give you one, as of 2 weeks ago

    I threw my free case on the trash, I hated the damn thing. Then again I never had the signal bars problem. I now only use my different styles of speck case just for protection of my clumsy hands.

    Sorry but the antennagate is very real.
    I went to my local Apple store the other day, and picked up an iPhone 4 and bridged the gap with my left hand. The bars dropped from full to 1.
    Now you might say, "who holds their iPhone like that?" well, sometimes i actually do, i hold my iPhone 3G like that sometimes.

    I understand that a few phones do the same thing, if i hold my iPhone 3G is an awkward position i can get it to drop bars as well. But the iPhone 4's weak spot is a very common way of holding a phone, that's where they went wrong.

    It's pretty clear the iPhone 4 didn't have the media attention, and i believe Apple is keeping the iPhone 5 in secrecy so that they come out with a bang.

    I used cases for the first few weeks after getting the phone. Since then, it's been naked.

    Put it on once and never used it again. I can't physically make my phone drop any signal in Toronto.

    Using the Incase snap smoke ... but only about twice per month when I'm doing something outside (at a game, hiking, etc)

    Otherwise, I'm anti-case, pro-taking care of your belongings.

    I was using my case till I bought a Zagg Invisible shield and the case wouldn't fit around the shield, so I had to get a new case, no big deal though.
