Apple Drops Return Fee for iPhone 4

Apple has dropped its 10% restocking fee for customers looking to return the iPhone 4.

The announcement came via a press release this morning. Apple stated that if you are not fully satisfied, you can return your undamaged iPhone to any Apple Retail Store or the online Apple Store within 30 days of purchase for a full refund.

ComputerWorld was able to confirm this with an AppleCare Support Representative.

Apple may have done this in part to quell lawsuits brewing against the company. For example, in a lawsuit filed Wednesday Kevin McCaffrey and Linda Wrinn accuse Apple of knowingly selling a defective product, adding that they "are unable to return the phone without incurring a substantial restocking fee."

Why does it take 2 weeks to do one stupid mathematical equation to calculate the signal and how many bars to show? Oooohhh I know.. Because they want people to keep buying their faulty product. For anyone who has 4 or 5 bars righ now, you actually have 2 or 3 bars.. Is basically what apple is saying. THEY TRIED TO MAKE THE PHONE LOOK LIkE IT HAD BETTER RECEPTION THAT IT REALLY DOES BY TWEAKING THE CALCULATION IN THE FIRST PLACE! It\'s now come back to bite them in the ass. Don\'t feel sorry for them. Don\'t stick up for them to trying to trick people into thinking true signal is stronger than it actually is! Just feel sorry for whoever decided to play with the equations in order to make this phone appear to have better reception because I\'m sure they got fired.

WTF are people crying about its an iPhone if your not happy then the next time something new comes out keep you punk ass home and wait until the reviews come and disclose the bugs. If you went from another carrier to AT&T Hey that was your fault next time think before you do something! The article says substantial loss, really? $19 is a substantial loss? C\'mon Man! Some people just need to take responsibility of their own actions! Yea I got my 4G two days before realease date the signal cuts out it has all the typical AT&T issues but i chose to buy it! But I still love my 4G! All you cry babies STFU!

Actually wouldnt it be more like 40 or 50 bucks, since 199 is your price after the att discount? and the restocking fee is 10% of original price?

Thats because its ILLEGAL in the UK to charge a re-stocking fee on ANY purchace .. Know your consumer rights .. if in doubt GOOGLE is your friend :)..

what about if the phone was bought from a retailer, like Best Buy. you would return to that store correct, and any restocking fees they impose would still be valid?
