    You will need it later when filing the applecare claim.
    Then you send it in and they send you a replacement.
    When I did it last month I just brought my faulty iphone to a UPS store along with the printed out applecare documents.
    They took care of the packaging, shipping and fees to ship it to apple and 3-4 days later I had the replacement arrive at home.

    Is your phone jailbroken? Many of us are having inconsistent home button issues where you need to hit the button multiple times to get it to activate. Sometimes it will do a double-home function when only hitting once.

    Sounds like a trip to the Apple Store is in order then. Bummer!
