Rogers Dealers Offering Extended iPhone 3G/3GS Warranties

Share:

On the eve of the release of the iPhone 3GS, it has come to our attention that select Rogers Wireless dealers will be offering warranties for new purchases of the iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS. If you recall last year, there was no additional warranty for the iPhone 3G outside of the 1 year manufacturers warranty.

There are two different types of warranties. Each warranty will match the contract length that you choose. For example, if you have a 3 year contract, then the warranty is good for 3 years. Please note that these warranties have nothing to do with Apple Inc.

Remember, your iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS still has its 1 year manufacturer warranty through Apple and Rogers from the date of purchase, but these new warranties are offered to extend that coverage and will only be available at the time of purchase.

iPhone 3G/3GS Extended Service Plan

Price:

  • Varies from $80 to $100 depending on the Rogers Dealer

Includes:

  • Free Parts and labor repair for 3 years (or whatever length your contract is)
  • Lemon protection (If your iPhone has continual problems, it will be replaced for free)
  • Transferable to other devices (if you buy a new phone before the warranty period is up)

The second warranty option is for liquid/physical damage to the iPhone 3G/3GS and can only be purchased in conjunction with the first warranty. In other words, you cannot buy just the Liquid/Physical damage warranty alone.

iPhone 3G/3GS Liquid/Physical Damage Service Plan

Price:

Varies from $30 to $50 depending on the Rogers Dealer

Includes:

  • One (1) replacement per year when the iPhone 3G/3GS has been liquid damaged or physically damaged

Personally, I am not a fan of warranties. I have never purchased one for electronics and never will. I am very careful with my tech, so warranties are useless to me.

But do you buy warranties for your tech? Will you buy this one for your iPhone 3G/3GS?

    Intriguing concept but the price is way too high. Tough to launch this type of extra service when:

    a) Rogers seems to be reluctant to extend the best possible price to ALL their customers, current & future

    b) tough economic times for all

    I am with you on this. I am not going to spend $ on an extended warranty. If my 3G goes kaput then I will have a great excuse of getting a 3GS 😉

    The Wireless Wave in Costco has a 3-year for $50. And if you don’t use it, you get a $50 costco cash card at the end of the 3 years. Seems like a good enough deal to me.

    I determined years ago that I’m better off not getting extended warranties. The amount I would have spent buying them has significantly exceeded what I’ve spent to replace the occasional stuff that would have been covered by them. Of course, I always have enough liquidity to absorb the cost if necessary.

    Hmmmm I don’t want to spend no more money with Rogers and I never buy extra warranty as I usually take on the project myself and fix it. Now for the iPhone 3GS….. Makes me think if its worth it for 3 years or no? Comments plz 😛

    Well we all know that they have to make money on the warranties. My theory based on personal experience with pretty much every electronic I’ve ever owned, if it’s going to break it will break in the first month. This is mostly computer parts/mp3 players/phones thus far.

  • Apple will be offering AppleCare for the iPhone in the US, so I imagine that will be available in Canada as well. Even though AppleCare only extends your warranty to 2 years, it’s much better to deal with Apple than it is Rogers.

    I do like the extended warranty for liquid/physical damage. $30 for a year’s protection from
    liquid or physical damage is a pretty good deal.

    yeap, the FS warranty is great! I have it, and I’m going to be exchanging my 8GB for the new 3GS and just paying the difference, and not extending my contract what-so-ever!

    If so i think i will buy my 3GS there when they are offering them contract free

    When Rogers replaces the iPhone, do they give you a new phone, or is it refurbished? Do you have an option at all?

    You will still have Apple’s 1 year. Roger’s warranty must be purchased through them, but don’t get it. The FS one is all you need!

    (PS, happen to be in Winnipeg? haha)

    Keep in mind that some credit cards automatically extend manufacture warranties by one-year if charged on their card. I had double-checked by calling my Visa cards before buying the 3GS to see that cell phone/electronics were eligable.

    I bought an iphone through Costco – Wireless etc. in march 2010.  I bought extended warranty specifically because of the offer of liquid and physical damage.  It was supposed to cover my phone for three years and I remember it being just as was indicated above….one replacement per year (for three years because that’s the length of my contract).  I have now just had an issue with water damage and I’m having a very hard time getting warranty coverage – even though this was my understanding of what I was buying – water damage warranty.  I’ve got my receipt, but unfortunately, it doesn’t spell out the terms of the warranty and apparently the costco Wireless etc. that I bought it at no longer deals with apple due to grievances with apple.  Any suggestions of where to go to get my warranty info?
