FREE Case: How To Get Your Free iPhone 4 Bumper

Posted: Updated:

Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced Friday that the company will give free protective cases to buyers of its latest iPhone to alleviate the so-called "death grip" problem in which holding the phone with a bare hand can muffle the wireless signal.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced the giveaway Friday during a news conference at the company's headquarters, even as the company denied that the iPhone 4 has an antenna problem that needs fixing. The more than 3 million people who have already bought the iPhone 4 and new buyers through Sept. 30 will all be eligible.

People who already purchased the $29 "Bumper" cases will be refunded.

Users can apply for a free case--and a refund--on Apple's website starting "late next week."
