    I saw Engadget posting that someone was able to do this in Europe, but I'm curious if they are doing that at all apple stores?

    Anyone tried yet?

    No, I'm just going to wait until Apple rolls out the official process. No need to rush them at this point.

    I live a couple blocks from the Apple store. They said more info will be coming soon, but they cannot do it yet.

    Hmm I see, I think I'll have to stop by my Apple Store on my way home, it's on the way. I wanna know how it works soon since I'm not sure if I want to keep my bumper or not but I only have until the 20th to return it. I kind of want one in a white one instead, or possibly one of the new incase sliders.

    So I'm not sure if I need to return it and then order a new one when the time comes or what.

    I just want a store credit for the one I bought so I can get a $49 :eek: universal dock with a remote I don't need so that I can take out the insert and dock my phone with the bumper I have on it.

    For anyone getting a refund, what are you all planning to do with the $30+ store credit?

    I am no longer considering getting a 2GB iPod shuffle at half price or another bumper.

    I think I may just get $30 worth of iTunes gift cards and use it to buy games, movies, and TV shows for my iPhone 4.

    What are your plans once you get your refund?

    might just get the $30 iTunes giftcard
    or Apple Headphones.
    or The iPhone 4 Dock.

    But if you kept it, wouldn't you have gotten a refund for the same amount?

    You assume you're just going to be able to pick out any case in the store? I think you'll be disappointed.

    i'm gonna ask for my refund in all pennies and throw them into a wishing well one at a time, in hopes that one day ATT will become a respectable network....

    Any HIGH QUALITY apps anyone here can recommend?

    Especially games with extremely high replay value. I don't really trust the reviewers posting on the App Store.

    I still think Fieldrunners was one of the best games to ever come on the iOS platform almost two years later. I want games as addicting like that one.

    What most likely will happen is that you will go online and enter your phone's serial number, a few bits of contact information, and the number on your receipt used to purchase the bumper. From there they will likely issue you a check or credit back your credit card purchase.

    For all those people who posted their serial numbers online, beware someone might steal your case!!!!! :p

    Will the apple store even give me my 30 back, even though I opened the box already?

    they said in the press conference that you can choose from their bumpers, or any other case from other vendors, im sure its gonna have to be equal or lesser value of a bumper, and the incase sliders should be equal or lesser value.

    You don't have to return it to get the 30 bucks.

    Oh ok, can I still get a free case? Or is it a choice of refund of bumper or free case?

    I'm willing to bet that its one or the other. You know, they give one free case or one check for the money back for a bumper per iphone bought.

    Wait.... if you hadn't returned it yesterday, wouldn't you still get 30.00 cash PLUS keep the 30.00 bumper?

    hopefully it will be a good learning lesson in life for you that you should keep your receipts.
