So I had a question about the app used to order the free case from apple. Once you download and install the app does the app basically like log in the account that was used to download the app and hence if you want to check the order status of your case you need to login to apple.com/orderstatus with the same email/itunes id that was used to download the app or once you run the app does it ask you for your itunes id and password? I really need to know asap how the app works exactly since I need to ask a friend to use the app for me since I'm currently out of town and want to order a case with an iphone that's back at home. Thanks. :D

Yeah just launch the app and choose your case. its one time use only. So choose your case wisely. Then you can check it on apple store with same apple id that it was ordered with.

Does the app have to be installed on your iPhone 4?

I have received an email saying im eligible but wont receive my iPhone until August 14th. Can i install on my Touch so i don't have to wait as long for it to ship?

It's not showing up in the App Store on either my 3GS or iPod touch, so it looks like Apple has made it compatible only with the iPhone 4.

I couldn't find it on the App Store with my iPhone 4. I had to go to the Apple site on my phone and download it from the link.

The app says it picks up on your iphone's IMEI (?) number so I think you have to only use it on the iphone 4 for it to allow it. Sorry!
Yep, if you go back in and try to order another case it will say that a case has already been ordered for THIS iPHONE, not this iTunes account. Have your friend goto your house and grab your phone, download the app (via apple.com/iphone/case-program), and select your case. All my information was automatically filled in when I selected mine.

Oh well guess i'll just have to wait another three weeks then, would have been nice to get them at the same time.
