    Hey guys...

    I was wondering what your thoughts are on the above. obviously we don't know anyting for sure, but what do you think is going to happen about it?

    There's no way i'm carrying around a $600 phone uninsured... plus... i'm gong to be in England as soon as i get it so everyone is going to want to steal it.

    Applecare? Insurance from At&T?

    It'll be interesting to see the offerings. Presumably AppleCare won't cover theft or accidental damage, so I think it's up to AT&T to come through with something.

    Hopefully AT&T will offer some form of insurance for the iPhone to protect against theft and/or accidental damage.

    already asked ATT...

    they will be offering no insurance at all on this phone.


    Said fraud prevents them from offering insurance on all their new high end phones.

    Cingular/AT&T never offers insurance on high priced phones. Too many people call up and report them broken or stolen just to get another one for free. They stopped insuring high priced phones a few years ago. They recommend using your home owners insurance.
