Applecare+ only if iphone bought from Apple?
I ordered my phone through Verizon website with no problem because I couldn't get through to Apples website.
Now when I try to buy Applecare+ on Apples website they say it can only be ordered with an iphone purchase.
You mean to tell me that anyone who ordered their iphone through their carrier can not purchase Applecare+ ? That is ridiculous.
Anyone else hear anything about this?

Also, for their iMacs and MacBook Pros, I've been told that you can purchase AppleCare at anytime during the initial 1 year warranty period. Not sure the iPhone would be any different.

I still honestly think people are stressing too much about Apple Care +, Apple isn't going to screw people over by letting a glitch on pre-orders to prevent people from wanting to cover their Apple product, people who know Apple know this isn't how they roll...

Already called Apple about it, and the Representative explained that I'd have to take my "unopened iPhone to [my] local Apple store and purchase AppleCare + prior to opening the box and activating the iPhone" I laughed, because there's no way I can go without opening this sucker... I recommend 3rd party insurance though because they replace the phone for $49 as well but cover WAY more stuff.
I'm personally getting GoCare $59 for one year, and $97 for two years, they cover your phone for defects, accidental damage, spills, etc. Even if the iPhone is jailbroken and the warranty is voided! There are a ton of other insurance suppliers out there so do your shopping, AppleCare+ may not be your *best* choice

ballerx44, Apple must be kidding right, who in their right mind would no near an Apple retail store (or what if you don't have one in your area) on launch day? Seriously would you sit in line for hours to get AppleCare+ because Apple failed to prepare for this at the carrier level.
