From Apple's website:

Just $69.00
Add the AppleCare Protection Plan to your shopping cart after you select your iPhone.


Sometimes AppleCare is available cheaper through places like Amazon... (please use the link to Amazon.com at the bottom
of the page to search for AppleCare for your new iPhone because every order made that way helps the Disney Echo)... and getting AppleCare that way is every bit as good as buying it from Apple: you still will have an extended AppleCare warranty handled by Apple.

So, this poll asks:

Will you be getting AppleCare for iPhone 4?

Your voting choices are:

Yes, from Apple at the Apple Store
Yes, from Apple online
Yes, I'll get AppleCare from someplace cheaper like Amazon
No, I don't need no stinkin' AppleCare warranty
I'm not sure.
Some other answer.

After you vote, please explain your choice by replying.

In the past I've saved money buying AppleCare through Amazon and I bet I'll be able to do that again. There is no rush to buy AppleCare the day you get your iPhone anyway, as it comes with the same warranty already, just not a two-year warranty like AppleCare.

No Applecare for me. I'm not big on extended warranties myself. Not saying they aren't nice when a problem comes up, I just usually take my chances.

AppleCare for iPhone is still not showing up on Amazon.com yet, but you can get it from Apple for $69.00 or for $49.99 from the Mac Pro Online third-party reseller.

I voted that I'd buy it at the store.  But I didn't buy it when I bought the iPhone 4.  Did I say a bad word?

The first 3 months of warranty included with iPhone 4 are exactly like having AppleCare. I'll be getting two years of AppleCare but hopefully cheaper than Apple sells it for.

Amazon.com now is offering the same Apple AppleCare for iPhone 4 (and all iPhone models) at a lower price than buying it directly from Apple. This is exactly the same two-year warranty but at a lower cost.

Apple price: $69.00 with free shipping

Amazon.com price: $49.99 plus $3.96 shipping = $53.95


If you order AppleCare through Amazon.com at the following link it will help the Disney Echo: AppleCare Protection Plan for all versions of iPhone (iPhone 4 included)- Extends original service agreement - Incl. parts, labor & expert telephone service for 2 years from the original hardware purchase date. Apple part # MC004LL/A
