    why must we wait so long....Apple sure does things in a dumb way most of the time. Wonder what second part cases we can pick from...they could at least announce that so people can decide which one they want

    another ****ing moaner... what is the point, they give you a free bumper to deal with a problem and you moan about that aswell?

    I guess that they're trying to stockpile bumpers (hence why they are no longer on sale, and trying to source cases from other manufacturers

    It does seem like they could at least put a note up on the site saying 'coming soon' and some information about how the process will work once they're ready.

    Doesn't matter what Apple does, someone will complain about it.


    I also think this is the reason why.


    I think this is pretty much guaranteed.

    Ya really need to quit it with the "sons" or "son" crap. It's lame, and you're disgracing the great BabaBooey name with that "sons" crap.

    Hmmmm, maybe it's because you can't put a program together to allow MILLIONS of people to get refunds or order cases which is all tied to individual phones in a couple days? Just a thought.

    Anyone hear that siren? ....

    Well maybe they should have planned for this WEEKS ago lol.

    Also who wants to bet how long it will take to get the cases/bumpers delivered. Over under is 2 weeks.....I'm probably going with the over....

    Depends on what you order and when you order it. If you order it soon enough, I think you will get it in under 2 weeks.

    The phone has been out for almost a month now....they knew about this problem a few days after its release...if not before it was released. Don't make excuses...do you work for Apple?

    The 99 cent ebay cases are a good bet. Order one NOW if you haven't already. I bet you'll get that one from Hong Kong before your Apple one becomes available, you order it, it ships, and you get it.

    I ordered a couple different ones two days before I even ordered the iPhone from AT&T to make sure I had them in hand before the iPhone even arrived.

    Math lesson.

    On average a month is 4 weeks.

    "Coming Soon" I agree with - but they are still probably figuring out the "How it will work" bit.

    I'm debating returning the Revel case I bought at Best Buy (30 day return period is up on the 24th ... convenient, isn't i?) and going with a $2 case off eBay until I can see what Apple has to offer. OTOH, I'm kinda happy with my Revel case ... decisions decisions ...
