      MobileProtect – the best way to insure your iPhone

      It’s inevitable…accidents happen. When they do, we’ve got you covered. The MobileProtect App runs a few tests to ensure your phone is eligible for coverage. If your phone qualifies, then you can enroll in MobileProtect with Asurion. Please note you must have activated or upgraded your iPhone in the past 30 days to qualify.

      ● What’s Covered ●

      ✓ Loss ✓ Theft ✓ Cracked Screens ✓ Water Damage ✓ Other Damage ✓ Out of Warranty Failure (mechanical & electrical)

      ● What You Get ●

      ✓ Replacement iPhone without paying full retail
      ✓ Next day delivery (cut-offs as late as 9PM ET)
      ✓ Peace of mind that you're covered
      ✓ Easy online claims 24/7/365

      ● What You Don’t Get ●

      ✓ No huge upfront or replacement costs
      ✓ No appointments
      ✓ No leaving your phone to be worked on

      I've been waiting for this for almost three years. I'll gladly pay $13.99 per month so I don't have to pay $600 the next time my iPhone gets stolen.
      For $14.99 to cover lost or stolen Iphones. I might want to look into this for your new I-phone. Heck when I CSR I had to tell people that Applecare plan didn't cover lost or stolen

      Weird, no one wants it.

      Given this unprecedented demand and our current expectations for our iPhone 4 inventory levels when the device is available June 24, we're suspending pre-ordering today in order to fulfill the orders we've already received.

      The availability of additional inventory will determine if we can resume taking pre-orders.
      In addition to unprecedented pre-order sales, yesterday there were more than 13 million visits to AT&T's website where customers can check to see if they are eligible to upgrade to a new phone; that number is about 3-times higher than the previous record for eligibility upgrade checks in one day.
      We are working hard to bring iPhone 4 to as many of our customers as soon as possible.

      Yeah, over 600K in ONE DAY is light demand.

      Nice find Matt!

      How may 3GS's were sold on day one through ATT? The numbers reported for I4 should be exactly TEN TIMES HIGHER

      Shouldn't be hard to figure out.... oh wait.... I don't think we have ever heard a "consumer sold" number from these guys! Damn you ATT! You get to get away with saying anything here because there is no way to validate your claim!

      Apple says 600,000 preorders were made just yesterday (to consumers):

      So did anyone pre-order late afternoon and got through only to find Jul2 delivery?

      I was quite concerned when after an hour I did not received confirmation email for the pre-order. But I did see 24jun on my last page of pre-order (contratulations page).
      "chatted" on apple store chat live- they refered me to the apple store I have set for pick-up. Called the apple store , he verified what my last name was, and found my email addy/apple account and confirmed that I am set for 24Jun pick up.
      Then i got my email nearly after 2 hours... we'll see what happens on the 24th..

      e

      Wow, that's a horrible troll. "Light" demand my ass. 600k is a lot of freaking pre-orders! Should have kept your mouth shut.

      whats wrong with you dawg!

      apple has done really nothing to garner false interest and sales. regardless of what you saw in terms of no people in lines, the demand was and is there. whether you think the people with this demand are idiots for choosing apple is another story.

      maybe this will make you happy, but I persuaded my friend who was an iphone 3G user to get an android phone. His iphone was going haywire on him after 2 years of use and cracked screen and all, and he was looking forward to the June 8 iphone announcement, but I showed him an Arnold Schwartzaneggar sound board app on my HTC Hero, and he cancelled his ATT contract and got the HTC Incredible a couple days later.

      Still, something tells me he is going to regret it come June 24th, especially when he had no qualms with the iPhone aside from the fact that his was all busted up...

      In that case, everyone lied about 3GS. So that means only 60,000 THREEGS were sold on that launch day.

      So there will be 600,000 ip4's shipped to stores on launch day. I'll bet everyone has stock

      You ask for a link or proof, and then you cite a number without a link or proof. Come on now. I'm on your side, and I think that's suspect.

      I placed my order at around 8:30 PM EST through Apple.com, and received a confirmation email around 10 PM EST stating a June 24 delivery date. I feel more confident on that date since I ordered directly from Apple.

      He's the troll we don't feed. Perhaps one in 500 of his assertions is worth any attention at all. Add him to your ignore list, like the rest of us.

      Oh nice, I missed that from firevortex days. Once I started seeing his blather again I could not help but to call him out.
