    Just wondering...the squaretrade warranty is $99 (will be $120 after July 5th)...but you have 90 days after you bought the phone to buy the warranty.

    So could I wait the 90 days, and if I dropped my phone during that time, buy the warranty and get it fixed? Do they verify that your phone isn't messed up already? This way it would extend the warranty by 90 days (if I did this instead of buying the warranty on day 1).

    The warranty start after the first year of Applecare. Even if you bought the warranty, there's a certain period of time you have to wait before they'll let you file a claim, I think it's 60 days since the start of warranty. This is done to prevent people from doing what you're doing.

    What do you mean after the first year of Applecare?

    Applecare doesn't replace shattered phones, so this warranty (I presume) would start the day I bought it?

    Kind of sounds like the warranty starts 1 year and 60 days after apple care starts (which is when you first buy the phone, i presume)
