Just noticed that on the Apple Canada site they are now offering Applecare for 3g and 3gs phones.

Seems everyone who bought an iphone approx 18 days ago last year when the 3g came out is S.O.L.

Pretty lame. I am going to try back in a bit and speak to someone else in Customer Relations.

Apple's "out of warranty coverage" costs $229.

On the phone now with Customer Relations. They are investigating the issue and said they have had a number of calls today (yet nobody got an official answer??)

Will post again when I get some clarification. Is it even worth it or not? What do you guys think? My iPhone was already replaced once in that year.

It seems I could upgrade my phone to a 3GS for $199 and extend my contract for another 3 years or try and get apple to allow me to spend the $79 bucks for applecare.

iPhone comes with 90 Days of technical support. AppleCare Protection Plan benefits are in addition to any legal rights provided by consumer protection laws in your jurisdiction. 2. This plan extends your service coverage to two years from the date of your iPhone purchase. The plan must be purchased while your iPhone is still under its original one-year warranty. Service coverage may be subject to certain restrictions.

So basically you can buy it like for a mac, under one year and don't have to buy it during iPhone purchase. Shame that I already have a $90 warrenty plan from The Telephone Booth who won't fix my iPhone unless my 1 year with apple is over >.>. Oh well..Maybe next year's iPhone :P

Do you think that The Telephone Booth has the capability to fix an iPhone?

Do you guys think I'm better off just upgrading to the 3GS? I would pay $199 and be able to sell the existing iphone for hopefully a good chunk of that?
