    Am i right in thinking that the 3G iPhone is only under warranty for one year?

    If so what happens if the phone becomes faulty after 12 months but you have a contract for 18 months?

    Do you pay full price for a new one? Or at the subsidized price?


    How much is Apple care for the iPhone?

    No such thing as Apple Care for iPhone at the moment, I think after the 12 months of warranty It's £130 for a replacement iPhone. (Well for a replacement original iPhone it was £130), but you may be able to get the battery replaced for around £60 I think.

    If you lost it, they can't do anything about it. You would have to pay full price for one.

    Im sure there was AppleCare for the original iPhone.

    Also, most plans cover the phone for the length of the contract.

    You carry on paying your service fee regardless of whether you're using the phone or not.

    ye, you can pay an extra £7.50 a month incase you lose/have stolen/break your iphone. that way they give you a new one for free (im 90% on this, not entirely sure), but you then have to take out another 18 month contract. its basically to protect you so you're not paying for another 6 months, or however long you have left, of your contract for nothing.
