Steve Jobs finally addressed the issue, offering free cases or full refunds for any dissatisfied customers who bought the phone. What are we hearing now about the issue now? Not much.

He did some channel checks, and nearly two months after its launch, the iPhone 4 is still hard to find. New units are only trickling in to AT&T
