What does insurance or warranty cover ?

I was wondering what the insurance and the warranty on the iphone 3G exactly covers? Does the coverage include: lost, stolen, or water damage? My iphone is new and I want to inquire about what I need to do in case these things occur. Thanks

ATT does not offer insurance for the iPhone.  You would need to check with your home owners or search for other 3rd party providers to see what they may cover.  Apple does provide Apple Care.  That extends your phone support from 3 months to 2 years and extends your warranty for manufacturer's defects from 1 year to 2 years.  It does not cover accidental damage, loss, etc..... It does cover battery replacement though.

I've heard that you can purchase the iphone at "Best Buy". And They will offer an insurance package to you.

But please read the fine print on everything from best buy mobile. Because they may have their own set of terms and conditions.

 

Reading through the forums I've always heard such great things about the apple employees. And Such great service when someone has had to go and have their phone looked at. Sounds like the apple warranty is well worth it.

 

But there's also been frequent complaints of iphone theft. So this is definately a phone to keep an eye on.

Q. Will there be a monthly product service plan offered for the iPhone 3G?
A. Yes. However, AppleCare will not be available through Best Buy.
