Best Buy giving free Side Shield to iPhone 4 owners As of today, Best Buy Mobile has begun offering free Side Shields for iPhone 4 owners, helping those that are having problems with dropped calls.
The shield is clear and is applied to the outer edges of your device.

ZAGG, the company behind the Shield, says it was designed specifically to address the antenna issues of the smartphone.

The shield, as well as installation, is free to all consumers who purchased the smartphone at a Best Buy, or if you are a BB Reward Zone member and purchased the phone somewhere else.

Best Buy will also sell the shield for $10 if you do not fit the above criteria.

Furthermore, the retailer is offering 20 percent off all iPhone 4 cases until August 7th.

"Consumers are looking for immediate solutions and the Side Shield is a great option," says Scott Moore of Best Buy Mobile. "At the same time, we know that customers are always looking for ways to personalize and protect their smart phones. That’s why we are so focused on having multiple options—people want to choose what’s right for them."

"people want to choose what’s right for them"

That is an beautiful sentiment. What is right for me is Flash support, a keyboard, and an open OS...for iPhone owners, nothing feels as comfortable as being bound in chains and thrown in a dank prison cell (as this simulates being locked to iOS, and being unable to communicate with others due to antenna issues and a bad network).
