Apple details $100 credit for early iPhone buyers

Apple has posted details on how early adopters of its iPhone can claim their $100 store credit. The iPhone must be activated with AT&T and it had to be purchased before August 22 in order to be eligible for the credit.

The process of applying for the credit is done online, but confirmation is sent directly to your iPhone as an SMS message.

To get started you enter your phone number and iPhone serial number on Apple’s Web site; You will receive an SMS text message on your iPhone containing the access code to redeem your $100 credit. Enter your phone number and your access code in the fields provided to generate an electronic store credit; and then you will receive a $100 electronic credit.

The credit can be used at an Apple retail location or at the Apple online store. Requests for the credit must be submitted before November 30, 2007, according to Apple.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs promised the $100 credit after early adopters were outraged with the steep $200 price drop of the iPhone last week. Many users and analysts felt the cut was too much too soon.
