    Will Apple still allow adding AC+ over the phone on a phone I will receive in November? Apple's delivery dates suck so gonna order from Verizon.

    I was able to add it over the phone when I received my iPhone 5 last week. it doesn't matter when you order it, but when you receive/activate it.

    Cool. Hoping that was the case. Closest store for me is 2.5 hours away.

    I did it. Had to ask to be "escalated" since the initial person wouldn't do it even though I told her that I had been told if I lived over XX miles away (50, maybe?) that they could do it for me OTP. I also told her I had done it for my 4s and ipad 3 without issue. She wouldn't budge but got me over to someone who would.

    I only live about 30 minutes away from an Apple Store. Since my phone wasnt activated yet they let me buy it over the phone. He said otherwise I would have to go into the store.

    I was able to buy applecare+ over the phone 2 weeks after I purchased ip5 on launch day. No questions asked. I live about 80 miles from closest apple store.

    It just depends on the rep you get. I was able to purchase AC+ over the phone a few weeks after I purchased the 5. I live about 12 miles from an Apple store.

    i added it 3 weeks after i purchased. I made sure to call while by an Apple store in case they wanted to evaluate it but they didnt.

    I think some of the Apple reps are clueless. On the day I received my iphone 5, I called them requesting applecare+ and specifically told them I live 200 miles from the nearest apple store. The rep would not sell it to me unless I brought it in to an apple store. Again I told her I live 200 miles away from the nearest apple store. Again the answer was no. Told her she was clueless and was going to squaretrade. Since they record the calls, I called back, asked for a supervisor and told her the employee's name and her refusal to sell me applecare+. Unhappy customer=unhappy rep after supervisor chews her out.
