    I am a brand new subscriber to AT&T coming from T-mobile. I noticed coverage area is better with AT&T than tmobile by looking on their coverage map websites and also experiencing dropped calls quite frequently around the islands. I do travel to Kauai and my tmobile unlocked iphone 3g doesn't connect as well as my friend's AT&T iphone 3g.

    Anyway, don't want to stray from the topic. Is it necessary for applecare for an iphone 3GS and ATV? I do plan on keeping these till they die pretty much.

    It's not necessary, but I'd recommend it. Its 50 bucks and saves you from buying a $400 used iPhone replacement if disaster strikes.

    I'd do it for the peace of mind.

    As for the ATV, I'd say the same logic applies.

    Alright I just purchased applecare for my new ATV from amazon for $40 :). This is the first time ever where I want to cover my computer goods. I guess since apple products are expensive and indeed expensive to fix. I will need to find applecare for cheap for my iphone 3GS and maybe I'll go to walmart for that since there isn't one for sale on amazon. I don't plan on buying from ebay anymore since it causes me anxiety about the whole issue where I won't go into here.
