    I was wondering if it was possible to still order a free case even though I bought an iPhone off of Craigslist and not an AT&T customer. I downloaded the app but after I login I receive an error: "Sorry but your request could not be processed. Please try again later." Does anyone know a way around this? I really hope the kid I bought it from will let me get a free case some how lol

    If it is an authentic iPhone and the previous owner has not ordered a free bumper for it, you should be good. As for the error, the server is probably over loaded with request.

    No you have order the bumpers directly from the phone itself. No phone on hand = no bumper.

    paid $680 for 32GB with extended AppleCare

    I just registered my iPhone 4 serial with my AppleID on Apple.com and it still does not work. I wonder if I go in to the Apple store, buy a bumper and show them my iPhone 4 if they will give it to me for free...

    Has anyone else who bought their iPhone 4 off of Craigslist ordered successfully?

    You probably need those bumpers to protect the death grip on the phone's you no longer own, right?

    You need to install the app on the phone and select the bumper. So no, you can't get a free bumper for a phone that you don't own.

    You will only get a bumper if you have proof of purchase for the device. Or I could give my iphone to my friends and each of them could get a bumper I could sell them all and split the cash. So NO you can not get a free bumper, however the person you bought it from can :rolleyes:

    I have the original reciept, but my only concern is that they will ask for my ID

    UPDATE: just launched the app again and I am able to redeem a case. If anybody else was in the same situation as I was, register your iPhone 4 serial with your AppleID on Apple.com and then you will be able to get your case. It might take a couple hours for this to take effect. It took about 4-5 hours after registration for me. Hope this helps
