I got my 3GS this past November and got the Extended Apple Care a little after Christmas with money from that. I paid around $70. I believe it was. I activated it that day. Since I'm past the 30 days that I Picked it up and not into that year of it yet will they refund me the amount that I paid at the time? Or is there anyway to get that extended year onto my year that I would get when I buy an iPhone 4?

no extending for you

I don't know if you will be able to return it but you can't put it onto iPhone 4. It will make your 3Gs more valuable when you sell it.

No, they don't prorate AppleCare. Nor can you transfer it to a new device. You can transfer it to a new owner.

does Apple care transfer automatically through the phone or do I need to transfer it separately to the new owner??

Yes but you should call and let Apple know

Apple Care is actually attached to the device itself, not the owner.

It is attached to the device SN but it is good to call Apple once you've sold the device and tell them that you've sold it and give them the name of the new owner. Then they can change the information on the Applecare to reflect the change so when the new owner gets in contact with them for any reason there isn't a big hassle. I've bought my friend's Macbook Pro previously and that is what we did, and there was still an issue when I called once to get the MBP fixed.

I bought a used 3G with Applecare attached, it started to crack around the mute switch, took it to the genius bar, they looked it up and said "This phone has apple care" and gave me a FRU replacement. No hassle at all.

Could be because they always have a drawer full of FRU iPhones, vs having to actually repair / send for repair a Macbook Pro. Dunno, I have always been very happy with Apple Customer Service ... They have always done the right thing for me.
