Consumers reports has issued a new statement on the Apple iPhone 4, after Apple recently announced that it would be ending its free iPhone 4 case program at the end of September.
Consumer Reports doesn’t seem to think it is a good idea for Apple’s customers that they are closing the iPhone 4 case program down, and now you will have to ring Apple to get an iPhone 4 case if you have any problems.
The offer that takes effect next month is less consumer-friendly in several respects. First, if you are “experiencing antenna issues” with your iPhone 4, Apple says, you’ll need to call the company to request a case. And where the current program allows owners a choice of seven cases, including some from third-party manufacturers, the new program only offers Apple’s own Bumper, a frame-like cover that runs around the edge of the phone.
