      Just like AT&T, Best Buy will not offer insurance on the iPhone...

      You are correct - what everyone else (including the "BB Dude") missed is that BB IS pushing the $15 (per month!) service plan - I just got an iPhone 3G at BB this morning and I have NEVER had such a hard sell to sign up for that rip-off $15 plan. I had not one person, not two, but THREE people from BB try to sell it to me - the original BB salesperson, the BB Mobile Dept Manager, and finally the cashier. Crazy.

      No each time, and the BB Manager even tried to argue with me that my Amex Platinum protection plan would NOT cover my IPhone damage. How the heck would he know?

      The plain truth is that $15 a month is a rip-off. 6 months of paying that and you could have bought a whole new iPhone 3G-8gb. Not worth it. Bring it down to $5.month like it used to be and maybe you might get people to go for it, but not at that price.

      A moderate hard sell was for the accessories - they try to get you to buy these "packages" which include a bluetooth headset (some of which are at a ridiculous $80) plus screen protectors, protective shells, car chargers, etc etc.
