Recently Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Inc, promised to fix the issue of “weak signals” in iPhone 4 and Free cases to all iPhone users in a press conference. But it seems that things are already been picked up by other mobile manufacturers, specially after humiliated statement by Steve where he dragged other mobile manufacturers in the iPhone controversy by saying “None of the Phones are perfect“. Now after criticism by Nokia its time for Samsung who has its own way of encountering Steve statement – A Free Galaxy S phone for all iPhone users.

As per the Wired, Samsung is handing out its latest released Galaxy S phone to all iPhone users, as a replacement, who are frustrated by reception problems. An account on Twitter called @samsungukmobile is contacting people who’ve tweeted about their difficulties with the handset, asking them to submit their contact details to receive a free handset.

One of those offered a handset was Tiffany Nieuwland, who told Wired: “My iPhone and I have been inseparable for almost a month now, tomorrow being one month since the iPhone OS 4 launched. But the honeymoon period ended this week as repeated dropped calls, and a sudden unexplainable inability to make or receive calls or send texts left me disgruntled.

“So I did what anyone else would do: I vented my frustration on Twitter. Imagine my surprise, then, when this morning I am tweeted by Samsung offering me a free Galaxy S, their latest phone. Too good to be true? I decided to investigate.

“I called a friend at Samsung, and though she was initially sceptical, it has now been confirmed: the campaign is legit. Samsung is so confident about the superiority of the Galaxy S that they’re sending free ones to existing iPhone customers so they can decide for themselves.”

It’s completely an unconventional way of marketing which, for sure, can possibly set a grand prelaunch stage for Samsung for Galaxy phone. An amazing way to make people “hand-on-experience” on new device which is powered by Android 2.1. It’s entirely possible that Samsung has taken a gamble that getting a few of the devices out in the wild, so that people can see and play with them, will be worth the initial outlay in terms of the effect they’ll have on sales.
