China Unicom has iPhone 4 antenna issue covered

Carrier will include complimentary case when it starts selling the phone on September 16, according to Chinese media.

What's the Chinese word for Antennagate?

There isn't one and there isn't going to be one if China Unicom can help it.

Sources at the carrier tell Caixin that when Apple's iPhone 4 debuts in China on September 16, it will be sold with a complimentary case, presumably intended to head off the death-grip drama that troubled the device's launch in the States and ultimately forced Apple to give out free cases to all iPhone 4 owners and extend a liberal return policy.
