    So last Sept when I bought the 3G I got apple care with it...

    I have dropped the iPhone a few times and the back is a bit dinged up, but I did notice a crack around the vibrate switch, that extends all the way around it.

    Would my AppleCare cover me and would I get a new replacement iPhone...Would they allow me to upgrade to the new 3GS instead of the current 3G, or would I get the option to pay a bit less to upgrade?

    Also...would I be better going into AT&T store where I bought this to ask, the Apple Store, or just call Apple directly?

    Thanks :)

    No, they won't allow you to upgrade to the new 3G S, but they'll replace it with another 3G if you can show dropping it didn't cause the crack (as it's a known issue).

    Case by case (no pun intended) basis when it comes to case damage or cracks. It wouldn't hurt to ask; keep us advised.....:eek::eek::eek:

    they won't let you upgrade but i'd say there is a pretty good chance of getting it replaced
