2 year warranty is godsend :-) There should also be a law on atleast 1 full upgrade that kmanufacturers should be forced to offer

this is great news! iPhones are so poorly designed. It's so breakable especially that home button which breaks down from normal use.

Apple may have added the 24 month warranty, but they are saying ZIP, ZILCH, ZERO about it, don't want anyone knowing about our fair warranties!

If the "peehs" trust a company that trick their users, to upgrade for every small feature added; why not withhold information that would give the user a possible free phone from a warranty.

I see it day in day out,even 30 euro cheapest of the cheapest phones have a 2 year warranty where apple only give its ifans one year,which is an illegal practice. And by god do those iphones have an innate ability to go faulty just after the 12 month warranty is up. Most common is the home button locking, silent button locking,freezing during iTunes update or syncing,microphone going,the list goes on. The unfortunate ifan in an 18 or 24 month contract simply has to pay apple up to 200 euros for the "out of warranty repair",wait 12 months till their upgrade is due,or as apple hopes the customer will do just simply go out and buy a sim free its off contract version of the years 'new' iPhone.
