Hitting A Speed Bump(er): Someone Didn’t Get The Memo

This image described by Apple, iPhone 4, free bumper giveaway, Iphonebumper

Let's recap, shall we?

At Apple's press conference today, Steve Jobs basically said "We're sorry you're having reception problems with your iPhone 4, and to make it up to you — free bumpers for everyone!"

So iSmashPhone.com reader Tom decided to take them up on it.  We'll let Tom tell the rest of the story:

"Per your request during the [press conference] blog, here's what
happened when I went into an Apple store at 4:15EDT with my receipt to get a
refund for a bumper. They were clueless. No one had seen the [press conference]. No one had been told in advance what was going on. No one was prepared to answer
questions. Someone finally went to the back to ask/search/pray and came back
and said they think it is going to be done via the Apple store online but that
was all they could find out."

Mmm. Not a good start to Operation Good Will.  Any other anecdotes, pro or con, you'd like to share about your free bumper experience?  Shoot us a line.  And don't forget to take our user poll and let us know your experiences with the "death grip" and your feelings about Apple's free bumper giveaway.
