    This question may have been asked and answered already. Will you be able to purchase an applecare protection plan on your verizon iphone any time within the initial 1 year warranty like you can if you purchase directly from the apple store? Thanks.

    AppleCare is their thing - once you buy a device, you can get AppleCare on their terms from anywhere that will sell it to you.

    I would think that would be correct.
    You have to buy it before the original warranty expires which is one year.

    When I spoke with an Apple representative at our local Apple store a few days ago, he was convincing me to purchase my iPhone 4 directly from the Apple store, and his reason for this was the only way to purchase Applecare for the iPhone is to purchase it through the Apple store, nowhere else.

    My Local Walmart has AppleCare boxes on the hook among their iPhone accessories.

    As does almost every AT&T store I've set foot in, They even offered it to me at the time I did my exchange to get an i4 but I turned it down as I wanted to wait until I had gotten my next cheque.

    Will AppleCare be available for purchase from Verizon Wireless?

    Yes, AppleCare will be available for purchase from Verizon Wireless except for all Florida addresses, including direct fulfillment ship to Florida addresses.

    This it from the FAQ from the Verizon site. I think Florida customer can get it but it as to be directly from apple. It can't be purchased form a 3rd party.

    VZW states you can't buy AppleCare from them in FL. Not that you can't buy it, just not from VZW, you have to get it directly from Apple.

    Are their advantages purchasing AppleCare over a company like SquareTrade?

    AppleCare is extension of warranty to two years, and full tech support after the first 90 days free - it does not cover loss, damage due to drops, water exposure, etc. or theft.

    My experiences with Apple Care have always been good. I have it for my ipod touch, and it has really helped when I have had questions. The techs I have spoken with have been really knowledgable. I am seriously considering getting it for my new iphone.

    OK, but what are the general costs on this, and how does that differ from a third party insurance provider?????
