I'm a bit confused as to why Apple are not offering Applecare in the UK yet it's available for US customers. Any ideas?

I too have been wondering this ever since I got my first gen iPhone way back when.

I thought that with the launch of the second gen iPhone they would have offered AppleCare to us but it doesn't seem that way at the moment!

Quite annoying really.

It is very annoying - US users get an extra year's cover for £35, whereas if UK iPhones break after the first year we're screwed.

Not much we can do about it as Apple concentrates on the North American market. Prices approx. double Apple Store US to Apple Store Aus. for accessories. E.G. ADC/DVI adapter US$99 AU$199.

The only option I can think of is getting a third-party extended warranty or insurance, as the handset is 159 though I doubt it is worth it any repairs are probably going to cost more than the handset...if it is possible to buy a new handset or whether they would charge you the PAYG price as the handset is subsidised on contract.
