    You have 30 days to get Apple care. I would thing you could get to online but I would call to do it just to make sure it's done right.

    I thought it comes with a year, and just like the MacBooks, you have that year to purchase additional coverage.


    iPhone was here

    AppleCare gives to 2 years service the include 2 breakage or water damage. It cost 99 bucks also I believe it gives you 2 years phone support. The Apple care also will cover the charging block and cord. I was told by the rep a Apple store you had to buy it within 30 days.

    That's not what the sales man told me at the AT&T store. I'm gonna go to Apple and get a definitive answer. I payed 450 for my phone and dident want to shell out another 100 on the spot.
