iPhone 4 case program

We've been hearing reports that some people that ordered free iPhone 4 cases from Apple have already been receiving their reception savers.  Some other customers, unfortunately, haven't been so lucky.  There are reports that Apple has been canceling free case orders from users in Puerto Rico.  The reasoning?  Apple says that they "do not ship to international, freight forwarder, APO, FPO, or P.O. Box addresses."

This is pretty disappointing news, especially because there are iPhone 4 owners everywhere affected by the device's reception problems.  Usually I would understand Apple's point in this situation, but considering how big an issue "Antennagate" has been, I think it would be in the company's best interest to just hand out a case to every iPhone 4 owner that wants one.  Have any of you had your case orders canceled?
