    like many people that bought their iPhone near the initial release, my phone will be out of warranty soon. Are there any problems that have been discovered that warrant an applecare purchase? The phone is currently working perfectly.

    I'd get it (actually I did for my original iPhone) just for the battery. Odds are that it will get considerably weaker by the time year 2 is over, hopefully enough that it merits a replacement. Too bad I'm loosing out on a year of my AppleCare for that phone :(.

    You can't, the only way you can get 'insurance' on the iPhone is by buying AppleCare (availible online at, in AT&T stores, in Apple stores and authorized Apple resellers.) Apple Care is covered by Apple also, AT&T has nothing to to with it.

    Apple Care is tech support, not insurance. Apple Care will replace/repair a defective unit, but does nothing for you if it's lost/stolen/damaged
