I ordered my free iPhone 4 Bumper on Saturday, using the iPhone 4 case program app we reported on just at the start of the weekend. I ordered mine purely in the interests of journalism, and not because I need one! But don’t tell Apple!
This afternoon I got a shipping notification for my Black Apple iPhone 4 Bumper, telling me to expect receipt within 3 business days.
We are pleased to advise you that your Apple Store order XXXXXXXXXXXX has been dispatched by mail and will be delivered to your shipping address.
IPHONE 4 BUMPERS BLACK-ZML
The expected postal time for your order is 3 business days. This is an estimated lead time only and may vary slightly. As your order is being delivered by post there is no tracking available.
When I selected my free Bumper I was initially told to expect delivery in 5 weeks.
So either fewer people than expected are rushing to get these free Bumpers for iPhone 4. Which seems unusual bearing in mind that something free from Apple is about as frequent as a man landing on the moon.
Or Apple are on top of this and have ample stock of their own Bumpers.
Or, perhaps Apple Bumpers are not that popular?
Has anyone received shipping notes for their Bumpers yet? How about third party ones? Do let us know in the comments…
