Add it around months 9 or 10 of your contract. At that point, you will know if you going to try to get the new model or keep your iPhone for a second year. If you are going to keep it, get the coverage from Amazon. (Usually cheaper) If you need the phone support, than you will need to purchase the Applecare sooner as you only get 90 days from original purchase.
Battery coverage alone can be worth it.

A quick and easy search conducted within the last 30 seconds shows a price of $49.51 with free shipping. Retail $59.99.
That one looks to be for an ipod. Will it work for the iphone?

My wife and I both purchased AppleCare for our iPhone 3Gs on day one. Since we plan on keeping the phone as long (if not longer) than the 2yr contract, it makes sense to have hardware coverage.
It's no more expensive or cheaper than the plans offered by AT&T or VZW for hardware coverage (~$4.00/mo) but has the added benefit of advanced exchange at no charge....

Buy from a authorized reseller. Language in the applecare agreement can cause the the void the warranty if you cannot product a receipt from an authorized reseller, serial number and activation code
