One problem is that Apple's Order Status page is down. You can't check or modify anything right now.
It has that "We'll be back soon" message.
But when I placed my AT&T 4S order, I DID see the Applecare option there along with the other "optional" stuff during the process. But as I said, it was only on Apple's site. I didn't order through ATT.com.

iPhone - AppleCare+ - Apple Store (U.S.)
They better make some exception for those who ordered fromi AT&T.

I'm assuming that now, when people come into the store with a cracked screen and ask if they will fix it under warranty, they'll simply say "We can, but you'll need to purchase the Apple Care + warranty first", and then go through the process at that time.

I can assure you...and guarantee you 100% that if there is an issue where people WANT to buy the Apple Care + plan, but are unable to during the purchase process, that Apple will extend the ability to do so to every person who buys an iPhone 4S.

Sound advice Sean. Not to mention the fact you don't need to buy this. Apple care that comes with phone is enough for me. Heck, my sister exchanged her iphone 4 like 10 times with it. Of course, she drops it like 10 times a day as well. IMO, you don't need insurance. If it comes to that, pay the out of warranty repair.

I got through on AT&T's site first, but when it didn't offer me AppleCare+, I kept trying on Apple's site, so that I could purchase it together, just in case they wouldn't let me add it on later. I would think they would let you add it on later, even if it's within the first 30 days or so.

If you ever plan on handing your phone over to someone to look at it, get AppleCare+. If you have kids, get AppleCare+. The additional $20 cost over regular AppleCare makes it a steal.
Now I just have to call Apple about adding it to my AA&T web purchase. I would have rather purchased my 4S from Apple but their website was down and it wasn't possible.

I called Apple phone sales and got some info about purchasing AppleCare+. As always, you can purchase AppleCare (non-accidental damage, $79) anytime within the initial 1 year warranty. You can purchase it from the Apple Store online, Apple tele-sales or an Apple Store.
As for AppleCare+ (accidental damage, $99) while it is required to purchase it at the same time when ordering online or via tele-sales, the Apple rep told me I could go into an Apple Store and purchase AppleCare+ on its own, without a purchase of an iPhone. I asked weather I should purchase it before I receive my iPhone 4S from AT&T or wait until I get it, she said wait. She said it is not available for separate purchase online or the phone.
I will be going to a my local Apple Store this week to try and purchase AppleCare+ and will post here to let everyone know if the phone rep was correct.
