    Does anybody have any idea on what Verizon sales reps get currently for selling Applecare for iPads or iPhone come February? I'm trying to understand if there's any advantage to purchasing directly from Verizon or Apple... in other words if Verizon reps are getting a commission on Applecare might I be able to swing a deal on accessories or other package bundles?

    Not likely.

    AppleCare is a rip off for the iPhone, IMO. I have it for my MB though. I buy all my electronics with my Amazon Visa card. It doubles the manufacturers warranty if you use it to purchase the device.

    if you want a warranty go with square trade better coverage including droping it in the toilet or run over buy a car. however also keep in mind that Apple will exchange even a busted iPhone or dropped in the toilet for $199 US. Square Trade for 2years is $99 16GB and $125 32GB for the Verizon I just checked. covers in part.

    It's an accessory, so probably not. And you're better off getting Applecare from Amazon or B&H or somewhere so you can save a bit off of MSRP.
