    so once youve unlocked your iphone, if something happens to it that is not your fault...is the warrenty voided since your no longer with at&t?

    kinda scary if the battery dies or somethin

    please help.

    thanks for that post but that really didnt answer my question. im not worried about unlocking it and that voiding the warrenty..im sayin if youve jailbroken and unlocked your iphone and you do not have an active contract with at&t will apple refuse to replace the device if the damage is not your fault?

    i appreciate the help tho

    Yes. If you change the firmware or hack a desktop software do you expect support on it? You play within their rules if you want their coverage

    ok 1 more time this has nothing to do with unlocking or jailbreakin the device! i know i can restore the iphone and noone will everknow something was done.

    im talking about just not having at&t as a carrier. thats so stupid that apple wouldnt replace it. its apples device.

    so if your phone defaults your screwed and you have to spend 500.00 on a new phone. thats so lame.

    Again, You play within their rules if you want their coverage. Unlocking is NOT playing by their rules. If you don't like the rules order an unlocked model from Europe for hundreds of dollars more.

    I have a warranty with them. They've been very easy to deal with when setting up my warranty. I've heard their customer service when needing to use the warranty is great too, but I hope to not find out

    State Farm offers insurance on the iPhone. all they require you to have is the proof of purchase and proof of vaule of the phone(yes this can be different since many ppl upgrade their plans to get the iphone and the discounted price). its around $30 bucks a year and no deductable. that is just a round about estimate, so dont take that for sure.

    Actually I didn't understand what you were asking, still a little fuzzy. So I don't think you needed to bold, increase font size and underline, to me it just made it seem rude since you didn't seem to explain properly.

    So you're asking if you had the phone with AT&T and then you finished your contract and went somewhere else? Otherwise how would you have it in the US not on AT&T without it being unlocked? bought from Europe?

    See how it is still a bit confusing?

    sorry if you took it that way. i really didnt mean that. however the person that was responding to me was being a little rude from the beginning which is why i put that in bold/underlined. but anyways..im not trying to make this a personal issue. i appreciate everyone here for helpin eachother out so much


    im sorry if im confusing everyone. im suckin right now...well this is my plan..

    go to at&t, get an iphone for 200 + tax, cancel before 30 days (which saves me over $350.00 with no charge ), and finally..get a plan with t-moble and bid At&t fairwell.


    so according to apple i would either have an iphone through at&t, or with no plan at all. my question was basically if say for instance the battery is bad (not my fault) and they see i dont have at&t anymore...will they say "sure its our product..well replace it", or say "sorry buddy you dont have at&t anymore"

    so i guess my question was is the insurance warenty through at&t or apple?

    i apoligize for making this so confusing

    Usually if you return the phone within the 30 days if you look at the contract they will charge you the outright price of the phone if you dont give it back. So lets say you keep the phone expect a bill for the extra 350 on top of what you paid for it orginally.

    see I thought this was what you meant but I had to read it a couple times before I figured it out

    "So you're asking if you had the phone with AT&T and then you finished your contract and went somewhere else?"

    OK got a couple of answers for you, yes I beleive the person is right, if you chose not to stay with AT&T you have to pay the rest of the price of the phone. It's the same here in Canada. You should check though, here in Canada if you get the phone with Rogers with a 2 Year Plan and then you choose to leave Rogers you pay money not as much as the total cost of the phone but pretty close, you might get $100 off. I would say the cheapest way to the phone is to buy it through a personal sale like ebay, etc. The Apple honoring the waranty, I don't know how it is in the US because it seems to be alot more strict there but here when I had dust in the screen of my phone. I made an appointment at the Apple store and took it in, they checked the Serial number to make sure the phone was still under warranty. The didn't check anything to do with my carrier account or anything.

    You will pay more if you cancel, I believe the early termination fee on the 16gb is at least $200 (and that's with a corporate discount)

    to move to tmobile you would have to unlock the phone and void the warranty as AT&T does not unlock the iPhone. That's the only way to get away from AT&T from
    this time.

    And yes, Apple will refuse to replace bad hardware if you void the warranty. When they don't people are lucky.

    My first iPhone cost $600.
