$15 iPhone 4 Antenna Settlement Claims Now Being Accepted

In line with the settlement announced last month over antenna issues on the iPhone 4, certain owners are now receiving notices instructing them how to claim their $15 settlement payment from Apple. The settlement is limited to those customers who experienced issues but who were unable to return their devices and who opted not to receive a free bumper case from Apple.

Apple will provide a $15 cash payment to Class Members who send in a valid claim form. The claim form will require you to declare that you: (a) experienced antenna or reception issues with your iPhone 4; (b) were unable to return your iPhone 4 without incurring any costs; (c) were 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 4.

Apple is still offering free bumpers to those who specifically request them, but the cash settlement provides an alternative method of compensation for those who do not wish to utilize an Apple bumper or who no longer own the affected device and did not originally receive a free bumper.

Users eligible for the $15 settlement payment have until August 28 to file their claim forms, and must file any objections to the settlement by June 15. A court hearing on July 13 will consider the settlement for final approval. Any parties wishing to exclude themselves from the class action settlement and pursue their own remedies also have until June 15 to register their removal from the class action group. Additional details are available at the official settlement site.

what if you were having antenna trouble, then walked straight into the glass window of an Apple Store, would you get $30?

Then why did apple give out free covers and settle the case? It seems obvious that a lot of ppl were affected by this flaw.

Because like with most loud, screaming children, a colorful piece of plastic and rubber shuts them up.

At the expense of whiners who blew it way out of proportion?

There. Fixed that for you.

Basically, there are still millions of iPhone 4 users out there who really never had any real problem.

Was it a flaw? Sure. Was it really all that big of a deal? Not really.
