If you purchased a Bumper from Apple or AT&T, you can get it refunded. This is part of a move aimed at appeasing angry iPhone 4 owners who are having reception issues with their iPhones.
How to Get Your iPhone Bumper Refunded
If you bought your Bumper by Credit Card, you should have already received a refund. Apple notes it may take one full billing cycle for the refund to appear on your banking statement. If you want to check for yourself, you can always check the status of your refund here.
If you bought your Bumper by cash, check, or gift card at an Apple Store, return to the Apple Store with your receipt by September 30th to get your refund. If like me you don’t keep receipts, I suppose that showing them your Bumper case might be good enough to get a refund, but don’t quote me on that.
If you bought your Bumper from the online Apple Store with a gift card, Apple will automatically mail you a new gift card for the total amount of the refund.
If you bought your Bumper from AT&T, fill out this form and mail it to Apple by September 30th. They will process your refund as soon as they receive your claim.
Note that only Bumpers will be refunded. If you bought a third-party case, you are not eligible for a refund. However if that’s the case, you are eligible for a free Bumper and here is how to get it.
