"When the iPhone appeared, AT&T excluded it from its standard phone hardware insurance plan. Now it appears the company is ready to launch a plan specifically for the iPhone, at a rather steep $13.99 per month, significantly higher than third party warranties available from SquareTrade."
Apple Insider offers a pretty good comparison between the AT&T plan that is supposed to be offered and Square Trade, which offers several different types of device plans. Also, under certain circumstances (depends on the size and also you have to sign up for another two year commitment), you can get another iPhone at Apple for $99.00 USD to $199.00 USD if your iPhone breaks. Or if you buy at Best Buy they have a great warranty replacement plan for around $15.00 USD I think. Not sure about you, but it doesn't quite seem worth it to me. If it were lower, such at around $5.00 USD per month I probably would consider it. What are your thoughts on this pricing?
