iPhone Bumpers — Sadly… Just thought you might like to know why you will only be able to order a free bumper until September 30th, well here in Ireland I just had an O2 sales rep tell me that I would not be able to get an iphone 4 until the end of September. Why you ask well it will come with a free case in the box.
Love the Show

P.s. I got a HTC Desire

Add a rebuttal to your point about apple simply flashing a device to repair it, what about when someone uses an unauthorized app to overclock the phone, and it burns out part of the hardware as a result? I’m not a fan of subsidizing others’ curiosity and hobbies, so I think that Apple’s warranty policy canceling coverage for jailbroken phones is not only prudent, but fair for the rest of us.
