    I bought a used 1st Gen iPhone and I was thinking about buying Applecare for it, but when I checked the status on the Apple website, it says that it's not covered under service but is eligible for phone support until 11/09.

    That doesn't seem to make any sense to me (Macs have phone support expire before the actual warranty expires), but what does this mean regarding AppleCare eligibility? Just wondering. Thanks.

    I don't think you are able to purchase Apple Care on the iPhone so that is probably what it means.

    It probably means the phone was purchased 11/07, still has phone support, but no technical support. If that's correct (and you should be able to verify) you should still have ~4 months to buy Applecare for it (1 year from purchase date).

    Well, here's a screenshot of what I see. It doesn't seem to make any sense to me.
