    I could see that being true, but how would they know? I would assume only Apple & AT&T (as well as authorized retailers) have access to that.

    I was going to say how would they know?

    And further that wouldnt make any sense, what if you broke a phone and you got a refurb, they wouldnt honor the rest of your insurance? Something is off with that.

    I just got a refurb coming back from a 9700 ($250 for a 32gb) and its a refurb, but according to the Applecare left on it its only 2.5 months old (Applecare good until Sept 20 2010). I dont see what the difference is or how theyd know vs a brand new one 2.5 months old.

    Do they advertise this up front? Lots of people buy squaretrade warranties up front from ebay and other sites when they buy used phones. I thought SquareTrade had a MAJOR portion of their business coming from used devices?

    When you choose iPhone from their website, there is no option for refurb; so yes, its pretty obvious. They may warranty used items, just not iPhones. What sucks is that you can buy a 32GB refurb iPhone 3Gs for $149! 90 day warranty? No thanks.

    Luck? This is why I have decided against a refurb-2 year contract and a 90 day warranty.

    BTW BestBuy is going to start selling refurbs soon. Theirs will have a 1 year warranty and I am sure they will offer their $16/month service plan.
