AT&Ts site says (somewhere, don't remember) that all warrentes are going to be handled through Apple, and that they do not offer wireless insurance for the iPhone. That begin said, I'm getting Applecare will be avaliable fore it, though nothing is mentioned through Apple.

I was wondering that too, since I'm planning on buying from the AT&T store.

Remember Applecare DOES NOT protect against theft, water damage, cosmetic dames, etc....it would be only to protect against physical defects after the standard warranty expires.

Insurance for my razr wasn't available through AT&T until about a year after I got it and I would imagine that Applecare is definitely going to be available on the iPhone.

so Applecare only helps if somehow the prodcut goes bad after the std warranty? so if i dropped it on accident and it breaks, Applecare doesn't cover it? that is if its like Applecare for iPhone is like the one for computers

Precisely here are the limitations:

b. Limitations The Plan does not cover:
(i) Installation, removal or disposal of the Covered Equipment, or installation, removal, repair, or
maintenance of non-Covered Equipment (including accessories, attachments, or other devices
such as external modems) or electrical service external to the Covered Equipment;
(ii) Damage to the Covered Equipment caused by accident, abuse, neglect, misuse (including
faulty installation, repair, or maintenance by anyone other than Apple or an Apple Authorized
Service Provider), unauthorized modification, extreme environment (including extreme
temperature or humidity), extreme physical or electrical stress or interference, fluctuation or
surges of electrical power, lightning, static electricity, fire, acts of God or other external causes;
(iii) Covered Equipment with a serial number that has been altered, defaced or removed;
(iv) Problems caused by a device that is not the Covered Equipment, including equipment that
is not apple-branded, whether or not purchased at the same time as the Covered Equipment;
(v) Service necessary to comply with the regulations of any government body or agency arising
after the date of this Plan;
(vi) The provision of replacement equipment during the period when the Covered Equipment is
being repaired;
(vii) Covered Equipment that has been lost or stolen. This Plan only covers Covered Equipment
that is returned to Apple in its entirety;
(viii) Cosmetic damage to the Covered Equipment including but not limited to scratches, dents
and broken plastic on ports, that does not otherwise affect its functionality or materially impair
your use;
(ix) Consumable parts, such as batteries, except in respect of battery coverage under APP for
iPod or unless failure has occurred due to a defect in materials and workmanship;
(x) Preventative maintenance on the Covered Equipment; or
(xi) Damage to, or loss of any software or data residing or recorded in the Covered Equipment.
When providing repair or replacement service, Apple will use reasonable efforts to reinstall the
Covered Equipment’s original software configuration and subsequent update releases, but will
not provide any recovery or transfer of software or data contained on the serviced unit not
originally included in the Covered Equipment.


Remember this is not insurance, just a warranty extension.
