Listening to the AT&T rep. I had planned on getting a 16 gig iPhone and had just enough on 3 different credit cards to do so. When I got to the AT&T Rep, he asked if I was going to purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan (which I planned on buying next month). Asking if there were any time frame to buy it (my Sprint Fusic insurance had to be bought within 30 days of purchase), clerk told me it had to be purchased at the same time the phone was bought. So I got the plan and an 8 gig. After opening the phone and activating it, I found out that I have 1 YEAR to purchase the plan. Since I didn't open the Applecare Plan box, it's going back on Tuesday and I'm going to try to exchange the 8 gig for the 16 if they have any left.
