    If you have a 1st gen iPhone and it broke, you could buy a new one for the full price again-$400 or whatever it was. If you upgrade to a 3G iPhone, pay the subsidized price and it breaks, will you then have to pay the 600 or 700$ for the new phone?:eek:

    That would be affirmative. I would also say "if" the iPhone 3G breaks because so far I haven't heard of too many deaths that weren't "I dropped mine and the screen is totally cracked." If AppleCare is available, might be a good idea.

    Uh, when the first iPhone broke, and it was still under warrenty, it was replaced for free. Even if you broke it, it was replaced for $250, not $400. I wouldn't think this phone would be any different.

    You're saying you would have to pay $600-$700 to get the phone replaced?:confused:

    Um... no. Just like the first iPhone, if it's still under warrenty, they replace it for free. If it isn't, the fee is $250.
