Apple is taking a hit in the media, and this is not going to help. If you have an iPhone that is defective or not functional, Apple WILL NOT honor any hardware warranty if you do not have an active AT&T subscription. So, if you had a plan, and cancelled- your phone-less iPhone is no longer covered if it fails in the normal 1 year warranty period. Here is the link: http://www.tuaw.com/2007/10/15/apple-limits-iphone-service-to-atandt-account-holders/ Apple limits iPhone service to AT&T account holders Posted Oct 15th 2007 10:40PM by Erica Sadun Filed under: Apple Corporate, Bad Apple, iPhone If you buy an iPhone and don't have AT&T service, it looks like Apple will be treating your iPhone as an iPod--with no 2 year service guarantee or even, for that matter, a 90-day service plan. Jake Dugard cancelled his iPhone account receiving poor AT&T reception. When his phone stopped working properly shortly after, he was told that Apple would not service his phone. Repairs depend on an active agreement. It makes sense to me that Apple offers a much longer service time for under-contract iPhones than it does for iPods, but it doesn't make any sense that a no-contract iPhone isn't covered at least under the iPod's one complimentary support incident within the first 90 days of product ownership. Dugard and/or his friends apparently recorded his service calls but, as an update, has now removed them for the time being from public view. If you followed the earlier link and cannot find them, that is why. Thanks to iPhoned Home Update: Quoting the relevant text: "iPhone comes with one year of hardware repair service coverage and up to two years of technical support during the time your wireless agreement remains active with AT&T."
