    Do you think you would be able to purchase Apple Care for the iphone through Verizon or go through Apple? I don't know how ATT has been doing this. It makes more sense than going with the insurance that VZW offers.

    Yes, you can get AppleCare - it will be $69 to extend warranty to two years... they may also offer Asurion for loss/theft protection - have'n seen info on that one yet.

    Keep in mind ALL AppleCare does is extend the warranty it's not insurance ..

    ^^^ Exactly...so many people think AppleCare is some kind of insurance on the iPhone, and get a big surprise when they walk in with the plan ready after they've dropped the phone and busted it and Apple hands them a bill before starting work...

    Not trying to say AppleCare isn't worth its cost, its a very good buy if you plan to keep your iphone for more than a year at a time without upgrade, but apple newbies tend to forget to read what they pay for.

    If I've said it once, I've said it a million times... add it to your homeowners/renters insurance policy... 9 time out of 10 they'll insure it... they'll ask for an amount, make sure you include the sales tax on top of full retail price, just had to do this for my gf's phone... worked like a charm, and if by chance they wouldn't

    State Farm Personal Effects Policy $39 a year, no deductible

    Good suggestion... I'll call my insurance company (AAA homeowners) and inquire
