One of our AT&T ninjas just hit us up with some news that will excite those of you who have a chronic case of the dropsies and own an iPhone. AT&T will be launching a new insurance service starting June 6th, named MobileProtect, designed specifically for the Apple iPhone. The insurance plan, which will be run by Asurion, will carry a price tag of $13.99/month and will be available for purchase through Apple’s App Store. The charges will be billed to the credit card on file with Apple. The deductibles range from $99 for an 8GB 3G to $199 for a 32GB 3GS, which is pretty steep — but not quite as steep as $699 for a new 32 GB 3GS off-contract. You must enrol

If I read this correctly, it's not really from AT&T at all, right? It's through Assurion and AT&T won't be selling it through their website or call centers--only available through iPhone app store.

It will be "from" AT&T on your monthly bill... Assurion is the insurance company tho.

The same company that does Verizon and Sprint insurances... Possibly others.

Just like if I get insurance thru work, and it shows up on my paycheck, I'm actually getting insurance from Blue Cross or what have you.

Actually you wont see it on your Att Bill, its going to be billed to your credit card directly.

You will have to go to the app store and purchase Mobile Protect app within 30 days of your purchase or upgrade, like stated above.

IDK if the websites up : mymobileprotect.com

Glad I won't have to deal with the "What do you mean I have to pay for a deductable? I'm already paying for the insurance!" calls. It's bad enough at 50 and 100.

Beginning June 6, 2010, eligible iPhone customers (those who have upgraded to or activated a new iPhone in the past 30 days) have a new option for complete protection from loss, theft, accidental and liquid damage, and out of warranty failure.

MobileProtect is available for customers to enroll within 30 days of upgrading to or activating a new iPhone by searching "MobileProtect" in the App Store. The monthly recurring charge of $13.99 per iPhone will be billed to the customer's credit card by Asurion.

NOTE: The iPhone insurance is NOT from AT&T. It is provided only through the apple app store, cannot even be provisioned by AT&T. Assurion is the carrier, direct your anger at them or Apple.
