You have a one year warranty on a new Apple iPhone (or other Apple products). If you buy it new and then sell it, the warranty is still good for a full year from the date of the original purchase.
If it's a refurb, you get 90 days, unless it's a warranty replacement. In that case, you get the balance of the original 1 year warranty or 90 days which ever is greater.
As usual, the VZW rep is wrong. IMHO, wireless sales reps are one rung above lawyers on the "necessary evil" ladder.

As others have said, your iPhone might still be covered under the warranty depending on when the original owner bought it. You can see how much time is remaining with Apples online warranty tool. Simply input your iPhones serial number into the field. This will tell you what your warranty options are and how much time is remaining on it. https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do

Plus Apple support is great. As long as you don't lie to them they are pretty good about helping you. I had a coworker whose son threw her phone out the window of the car and shattered it. She went to the store with him and they told the story exactly how it happened, and she left with a new phone.
