Cases to cure iPhone 4 glitch

Apple will issue free cases to owners of its iPhone 4 to alleviate reception problems, Steve Jobs, the company's chief executive, said in California yesterday. If that did not work, they had until September 30 to get a full refund, Mr Jobs added. However, the promise was of little use to those who bought one of the phones on the UAE's grey market, as they are not yet officially for sale. Many users, such as Christophe Vu, an IT consultant from London who lives in Abu Dhabi, have already bought cases to address the problem. "So it doesn't bother me," he said.
