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.

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 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
