    That sucks!!! Unfortunately, I don't believe lost/stolen phones are covered by AppleCare.

    I believe that AppleCare is tied to the phone, not the individual, so you would need to get AppleCare on your "new" phone. However, I'm not sure they offer it for phones bought second-hand. I would call Apple, personally, and just get the straight dope from them.

    There is no doubt that Apple Care is tied to that particular phone only.
