    Sure. Or we could act like adults and buy a bumper ourselves.

    I don't want a bumper. I want a 600 dollar phone that works properly out of the box.

    That's the unsubsidized price for the phone. The reason yours cost only $200 was because you signed a 2-year contract with AT&T, and AT&T forked over the other sum of money to Apple.

    He didn't say he paid $600. He said the phone was $600. And the semantics is correct.

    Doesn't matter if you paid $1 or $600 - the phone is a $600 phone.

    We all do. Whether you pay it upfront or with 2 years of subsidies, you still pay the the full $600 eventually...

    Everyone's paying that much for the phone. You just don't realize it because it's subsidized by AT&T and they get the money from the subsidy from the dollars you give them each month for service. That's why they have a 2 year contract so they can make sure you pay for your phone in full.

    Or we could be adults and realize that a $600 phone should get good reception and demand a software or hardware fix.

    even if that petition gets enough signatures, how likely is it that we will get free bumpers? srsly.

    I guess if people are unhappy with the performance of the phone they could bring it back, it's within 14 days.

    I heard the EVO "4G" is pretty sweet. :rolleyes:

    Not me - I paid £29 for the phone and my work pay the £65 per month tariff! So there.

    I dont need a bumper to correct the reception because my reception has been perfectly fine.

    I will of course have a free bumper courtesy of Apply though if they are offering ;)

    Or act like LOGICAL thinking adults and demand that the phone, REGARDLESS of cost, works like a CELL PHONE should because it's being advertised, first and foremost, as a cell phone that we are tied to paying a monthly contract for service. That means get a signal.

    Thinking logically, and disregarding cost, my phone works just fine unless I hold it in a way that, being right handed, I never hold it.

    Couldn't have said it much better. I have no interest in a bumper, free or not - I've never used a case on a PHONE and I don't want to start now. I just want my PHONE to act like a PHONE. This is my 4th iPhone so I have a pretty good idea up to this point as to how the reception should be - and this isn't cutting it. I really hope it's just a bad batch as I've already sold my 3GS.

    I wouldn't care if I had walked into Walmart and bought the $20 prepaid nokia, I'd still expect it to work as it should and until it did I wouldn't be happy!

    The amount of time/effort spent trying to get free bumpers > cost of bumpers

    Ever hear of opportunity cost people?

    There are plenty of phones that provide that, maybe you should check them out.

    Unfortunately, a perfectly functioning iPhone 4 is not a right.

    I would venture to guess 75% of them are made with the intent of shorting AAPL
