Sprint does not offer insurance coverage for the iphone. This would have to be purchased seperately through Apple (Apple+ Care) for 99.00. I am seriously reconsidering Sprint. They leave so many things untold and expect people to pre order blindly.
It's not blindly if you know about it before purchase.
It's been clear from the beginning from Sprint on the insurance coverage for this phone! And you can purchase the protection via SPRINT.
ENOUGH WITH THE PROPAGANDA!
I know only because I had to seek out the info from Apple not Sprint. If you have nothing to contribute to this feel free to not say anything at all. How has it been clear by sprint when they are yet to say anything about the phone as an annoucement.
Yes it is Apple Care I would recommend getting that because all you have to do is take it to a apple store instead of a sprint store to get it fixed. Most of the time they will issue you a new iphone if they can't get it fixed.
Kind of the reason I'm moving to the IPhone (e.g. currently have a Samsung Epic). With the IPhone the buck stops at Apple; insurance, os upgrades, .... With Samsung Epic you have the Sprint/Samsung/Google mix where nothing gets done; except for alot of finger pointing and "soon" responses.
Yeah, don't let anyone tell you different. iphone has very good policies or fixing and returning phones. I think sprint did the right thing in getting this phone. Especially unlimited data is becoming a rare commodity.

Spel3113 might be right. 8*24=192 (not including taxes) That is if they don't decide to up the insurance price again. What I don't know tho is whether the Sprint protection plan covers theft.
Excellent breakdown and yes applecare does not cover lost, stolen phones but if you want that covered there are legitimate warranty companies out there that will cover that for an extrea 50 to 100 dollars more if you feel that will happen to you. I have had my phone for almost 2 yrs and its an iphone 4 and I will tell you I take that everywhere with me and never loose it. Its just one of those phones you can't forget and if its stollen get a police report and 9 times out of ten the cell phone company will work with you.
