    I would be new to AT&T and I didn't notice any insurance available for the Iphone on the AT&T website. I'm wondering if I get it from Best Buy, maybe I could get some type of coverage through them? I know some users recommend the Applecare Protection Plan. If it makes a difference, where would recommend purchasing an Iphone 3GS?

    With bestbuy, you can get the accidental damage protection I believe. AppleCare doesn't protect you dropping and cracking the screen.

    I have done both Apple store walk in and with my 3Gs I did AT&T online FedEx and by far the online/FedEx was the best way to go, no lines and no BS.

    I personally got mine from Apple.com and it got FedExed directly from China which I thought was pretty cool.

    I got mine from the apple store yesterday because non of the att stores in houston had them. Granted I'm an existing customer, but I was in and out in no time. Much quicker than the att store. I came from a bold. Loved the phone but not refined like iphone to me. I am not a business user either. At the moment i am missing my hard keyboard

    Is the iPhone 3Gs still ridiculous to get a hold of?

    Or is it safe to just stroll into a corporate store, or even Apple to pick one up?

    IE- is the craze already calming down?

    JAJA they knew iphone was a mistake their wasnt any hype like the first iphone LOL.

    Why do people keep comparing iphone to blackberry. I have blackberry 8900, 8320, 8220, 9000,3g and recently added the 3gs. Iphone mostly for people that think it makes them look cool or because its an advanced itouch. The multimedia on the iphone is by far the best and it doesnt compare to Blackberry. Now bring in the most important part to the equation push email, bluetooth, security, browser download, all of which my new 3gs can't do. Yes jailbreaking will help but my blackberry does that out of the box.

    Comparing Iphone to BlackBerry is like comparing a Lambo to a ZR1.

    The lambo has the looks and oos. But the ZR1 has the walk to back up the talk.

    you can get the protection plan from them with geek squad thats what i did but its 15 dollars each a month and i have 2 but its well worth it. bring it in an unlimited amount of times for any reason and they give you a replacement for the time being while being fixed or if they cant they give you a new phone at no deductible way better than applecare

    I'm taking a drive up (a little over an hour) to the nearest apple store to pick one up today. Hopefully the online availability checker is accurate because I'm looking for a 32 gig white and it says they're in stock. Anyone know how often they get shipments in?

    if you read what i wrote then you would understand, if the screen breaks batt messes up anything happens to it accept loss/stolen. its fully cover other than apples 2 times a year thing.
