    Hi All,

    I'm grandfathered into unlimited data on my current iPhone and don't want to lose it...I also want to get applecare+ this time through.

    I tried preordering on apple.com and it makes me choose between 2GB, 5GB, and 10GB data plans - no option to keep my existing unlimited plan. I tried ordering on verizon's site and it lets me keep my unlimited data, but does not let me order applecare+. Any solution here?

    Thanks!

    You can purchase Applecare+ when you receive your device, it doesn't have to be at time of pre-order.

    If you did NOT purchase AppleCare+ at the time of your preorder....you can only purchase it at an Apple Store. The reasoning according to Apple is that the AC+ is not available to any phones purchased prior to Oxt 7th. The website cannot verify when u purchased your phone but the store can.

    Does that also include AppleCare+, or just the plain old AppleCare?

    Incorrect. The guy is talking about AppleCare Protection PLUS.
    You have to get it at the time you buy your phone...

    Just FYI I was told last year by my local apple store it is cheaper to purchase it in the store from them than online. I don't know if that is only my local apple store or all of them.

    They just told me when I go to buy it next time contact them first.

    You can purchase it anytime within the first year.


    Also when I pre ordered my phone last night I had a selection for unlimited so I selected that since that is what I had.

    That is what I did last year as well.

    Im one of the lucky ones that ATT gives me the discount every year even thought I sign a 2 year agreement. :D

    Important Note

    AppleCare+ must be purchased together with new covered equipment. See AppleCare+ Terms and Conditions for complete product details.

    Service coverage is available only for the iPhone and its original included accessories for
