    My guess would be yes. It would be the same as with any other smart phone. I think mine is about 5.99/month on my current device.

    They currently offer Asurion at corporate stores - Authorized dealers do their own thing.

    I don't think Asurion will cover Apple products. Thats why you have the option to get Apple care.

    Apple care is only extending the warranty. Its not insurance.


    Asurion does cover the iPhone 4 on At&t. Its $11.99 a month with a $200 deductible

    According to Asurion.com once you choose Verizon, No Apple products are listed.

    And just for clarification I do not want apple care. Apple care doesn't cover breakage or lost/stolen.

    I may stand corrected but they will NOT cover the Ipad sold by Verizon.

    Why would you want to do that?

    Unless your phone is stolen or lost, Apple will repair your iphone for 199 if its not covered by their warranty.

    So while Apple Care isn't exactly insurance, you don't really need insurance. You don't need to extend Apple Care another year if you plan to upgrade in one year.

    If you lose your phone or its stolen, are you willing to pay $700 for non contract? Just depends on whats important to the individual

    I had an iPhone on AT&T with Apple care. I can't coment on lost or stolen but they do cover breakage. If if does not cover breakage or lost or stolen why would anyone get it?

    I suppose it does depend. I've never lost or had a phone stolen from me though and can't imagine doing that. I'm more concerned with dropping it. But at least its only 199 if i do (if apple doesn't cover it..they can be generous). But I haven't done that either (now i'm jinxed..lol)

    I will get the Apple Care, better to have something than nothing. In the past, Apple Care has come in handy with a warranty claim on an iPod.

    I have an iPhone 4 with AT&T and I had to purchase outside insurance because AT&T didn't offer insurance for iPhone users.
