Chances are that you have heard about the iPhone 4‘s notorious antenna problems. Basically, users can reduce signal reception and drop calls by holding the iPhone in a certain fashion (popularly termed as the death grip). Apple is officially denying that there is any problem, but the explanation offered by them is suspicious to say the least.
As it turns out, the death grip has a simply solution – use a case. This prevents the insulating wedge on the phone’s left hand side from getting bridged by the user’s hand. Unfortunately, Apple’s official bumper cases cost $29. I don’t need to say this, but being forced to shell out another thirty bucks just to make calls with a premium smartphone simply sucks.
The good news is that Mobile Fun is currently giving away free iPhone 4 cases, which they claim will solve death grip related reception issues. The Mobile Fun case wraps around your iPhone and its non-conducting silicone material prevents death grip problems from occurring.
If you live in the UK, here is how you can take advantage of this offer:
1. Add this iPhone 4 Case to your basket.
2. Enter the Promo Code DEATHGRIP
3. Proceed to checkout. You will still have to pay for shipping, but the case itself would be free.
This is a limited time offer and is valid until 30th July 2010 or the stock runs out. So hurry up and grab your free iPhone 4 case now. If you are not happy with this free case, Mobile Fun has plenty of other iPhone 4 cases, but they will cost you.
Update: After distributing almost 5,000 cases, MobileFun has closed their promotion as Apple has officially decided to issue free bumper cases to iPhone 4 owners.
