Hi I have an iphone 3g. The warranty expires in June. Can I renew the warranty for an additional 2 years with apple care?
ps. I bought this phone from ebay like a week ago.
also when I check the warranty on the apple website it says its under limited warranty and technical support ran out already.

And no, the owner does not have to transfer warranty to you. The information is server-side. If you have an iPhone under warranty even if someone else bought it first and activated it in their name, you can still get a replacement. Remember when that guy stole someone's iPhone and got a replacement iPhone under warranty, and Apple let him? Yeah. Warranty does not need to be transferred with Apple products.

As you know, Applecare is Apple's two years extended warranty.
Providing your iPhone is still under its one year warranty you can purchase Applecare from Apple.
Unfortunately for you, as the original Warranty on your phone has expired, you are not eligible for Applecare.

"Every iPhone comes with one year of hardware repair coverage through its limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary support.1 The AppleCare Protection Plan for iPhone extends your coverage to two years from the original purchase date of your iPhone. Just one phone call can help answer questions related to the iPhone OS, Apple-branded iPhone applications, and interconnectivity between your iPhone and your Mac or PC"
The OP's warranty has NOT run out yet.
