Apple today released the iPhone 4 free case program as an app downloadable here.   Seems pretty simple and a good way to prove you actually have an iPhone 4.  However, we just got a tip from a reader named Adam:

I just wanted to throw in this little tip to say that I purchased an iPhone 4 July 23rd 2010 and I got an email yesterday saying we will automatically give you your money back by Apple, but then I downloaded the app today and it let me get another free case.

Shame on you Adam and everyone else who tries this.  The options below:

Apple iPhone 4 Bumper – Black

Incase Snap Case for iPhone 4 – Smoke

Incase Snap Case for iPhone 4 – Clear

Belkin Shield Micra for iPhone 4 – Clear

Griffin Motif iPhone 4 – Diamonds/Smoke

Griffin Reveal Etch iPhone 4 – Black/Black Graphite

Speck Fitted Case iPhone 4 – Black Tartan

Speck PixelSkin HD iPhone 4 – Black

All cases currently show a 3-5 week ship time.
