Remember Antennagate? As you know, a settlement was reached in the class-action lawsuit concerning the signal attenuation issue stemming from the iPhone 4 antenna design. The settlement includes Apple issuing a free iPhone bumper case or $15 to eligible iPhone 4 owners in the United States.

In case you don’t want a free bumper case for your device, you can now register for a $15 cash payment at the official Antennagate class action settlement website which has just gone live. As always, there are some caveats worth pointing out…

Co-lead counsel Ira Rothken announced on Twitter that the affected customers in the United States wishing to make a claim can do so at the website now. This is only valid for the folks who did not pick up a free bumper case for their iPhone 4.

Also, note the fine print:

To be eligible for the cash payment, you must have: (a) experienced antenna or reception issues; (b) been unable to return your iPhone 4 without incurring any costs; (c) been unwilling to use a case or free bumper for your iPhone 4; and (d) completed certain troubleshooting steps or are unable to complete the troubleshooting steps because you no longer own your iPhone.

If you meet the above criteria, the settlement will provide a $15 cash payment if you are a United States resident who are or were the original owner of an iPhone 4.

Also, pay attention to these important dates and deadlines as well.

You are limited to one cash payment.

It’s worth remembering that class members can continue to request a free bumper case, per Apple’s requirements outlined in this support document.

Did you pick up your free bumper case already or are you planning to register and get your $15 cash payment?

  • This is some BS! I just called Apple support and spoke with the senior vice president. She told me this program is ONLY for AT&T iPhone 4 users! I have a factory unlocked iPhone 4 back in May 2011 with T-Mobile SIM and they will not give me a case because I am not using AT&T. The issue is the hardware and not the carriers’ fault! However, they kept saying it only happens to AT&T iPhone 4. I doubt I can even receive $15 settlement too…Is someone out there in USA using carrier other than AT&T and have this same issue? Please help!

    Y U NO think international ?

  • How do you request a bumper?

    • You need to go to Apple support website and talk to someone on phone or visit Apple retail store.

  • It seems to me the vast majority of people who own/owned the i4 are not eligible to the $15 settlement. I wouldn’t have tried getting it because I got the bumper (even though thats not a restriction) and I consider myself significantly appeased. But even if I hadn’t gotten a bumper I’m ruled out on b and c of the terms. C is particularly all inclusive, as it makes anyone who uses any case void of the settlement. In fact, the four terms as stated only allow a handful of customers the opportunity to get the settlement money. Don’t get me wrong, I think the whole issue was blown out of proportion, and frankly I don’t think Apple had to settle. But I do find it interesting how restrictive the terms are.

    Btw, I noticed some international complaints because only the US is covered. I feel for you. But the fact of the matter is it was a US class action filed in the US by US citizens. Anyone with an understanding of law knows this can only cover the US. Owners in other countries would need to bring their own suits in their juristictions to see similar relief.
