    Just a heads up, the free case program still works, however you cannot get the bumper anymore. All of the others are still there though.

    i ordered one last night and got my shipping confirmation this morning!

    its only working because your apple's ship date to your telco was earlier than 30th sept. if you're gonna order one right now from the apple store and wait for delivery, i'm pretty sure it won't work with the case program.

    oh and for the record, all iphones sold through local telcos here (in singapore) right until yesterday still work with the case program. they're also still on 4.0.2 so that kinda gives you an idea of how old they are lol

    bumpers = profits

    simple explanation....Apple pulled the bumpers from the case program because they are ready to make a profit off of them...for proof just look at your local Apple store and notice that the bumpers in all colors are in stock

    When did you buy your phone?

    If you bought it on or before Sept 30th, then you are given a 30 day window (until Oct 30th) to log on and order a free case. If you bought your phone after Sept 30th, then I have no comment for that.

    bought it last Thursday, 7th October. Its a week 40 build so i assume it was manufactured over the previous weekend or monday (2nd-4th October).

    i guess i just got lucky?

    My cousin bought her iPhone on Oct 2nd and it was delivered on the 5th, I'll give her a call later and ask her to try and order one to see if it goes through. I didn't think this would work, so I just gave her my bumper.

    My friend just got an iPhone 4 about 3 weeks ago and he was able to get a free case through the case program. I was surprised as I didn't think it was still going on, but he's already gotten the case

    If it still works, but bumpers are not included, I'd read that to mean apple ordered more of the third party cases than was needed in the end, so they're just keeping it open till their inventory runs out.

    Had my iPhone 4 warranty-replaced again due to a hanging, stripped screw on the case. Looks like when I restored all my apps, the Case Program got restored, too. I ran it, and it still allowed me to place another order today.

    Hey, if the offer still stands, I'm taking it.

    How long do you guys think this will last, I can't find an iPhone 4 from anywhere and I really want to save that money from buying a case, I wasn't going to ask for a bumper anyways.

    Probably till stock dwindles down. Did you go to AT&T or Apple to purchase one?

    still worked for me too.
    I had my iPhone 4 replaced and got a new one, so I got home and backed up from my previous one, and I still had the apple case program. So i opened it up and i saw every case except the bumper, so I ordered my incase snap on case, and i got the notification and shipment info by e-mail...

    yup, pretty cool story

    i can post a screen shot of my e-mail if nobody believes me
