If AT&T insurance is legit, will you purchase it?

    Now that iPhone 4 has been confirmed, has anybody had a conversation with an AT&T rep about this... I skimmed through the keynote and didn't hear Jobs say anything about it... I figured he would if it was true.

    Furthermore (just a side not), that AT&T insurance actually seemed kind of "cheap" if it is legit... One of the nurses at work said she pays $16.99/month at best buy! That's CRAZY! If I remember correctly the AT&T plan was $13.99/month (w/ a deductible).

    If the insurance is in fact legit... will you be purchasing?

    I'm considering forgoing Applecare and getting a SquareTrade warranty/insurance.

    Put me down for SquareTrade. First phone insurance for me. I have purchased Squaretrade insurance for all my outdoor cameras.

    I had a phase where I went through 3 3G phones in less than a year due to water damage/dropping them, and then I got a case and started being much more careful. Since then in the past year my current 3G phone hasn't been damaged at all and is in pristine condition.

    Overall, I don't feel the need for insurance anymore, if you had asked me a year ago I would have probably bought into it. Anything over $10 a month seems steep to me, so if that's the case I'll forgo it and pay up if on the rare occasion I do need it due to negligence.

    I don't know how people damage phones so much... I left my white 3Gs out of a case forever... it didn't show scratches (that was a plus) but I've never dropped it or anything... hm.

    Why would he?

    It's a developers conference.

    What does device insurance have to do with software development?

    He didn't say anything about data plans, either. And that, at least, would have some relevance to developers. (Because it would clue them in on data usage expectations for their software.)

    Because although he has never mentioned it, you know that he knows that it is a concern from a lot of people... and I know he was demo-ing the iPhone itself which is available on many different carriers across the world, but since he talked about the AT&T upgrade eligibility I figured he would touch on that to make it more "appealing".
