In a press release issued on Friday, Apple announced that the iPhone 4's antenna issues weren't hardware-related, but that the formula to calculate signal strength was flawed. Also in the press release, Apple stated that customers could return their iPhone 4s for a "full refund" within 30 days if they weren't satisfied. Sounds great! But even better — it's been confirmed that Apple will not be charging its usual 10 percent restocking fee if customers do change their minds about the new iPhone.
Previously, it would cost you up to $30 to return an opened iPhone, but now, if you aren't sold on the new gadget after playing with it for a month, return it, get all your dough back, and consider your alternatives — the Droid X and HTC EVO 4G look like mighty fine candidates to me!
