Yes, as I said I saw the warranty. The fact that I saw that is the very reason for my post.
Let me rephrase:
The Apple website says one thing, the Apple employee who would be rendering the services says something different.
Why? Is the employee wrong? Am I misreading the warranty and the website & employee ARE saying the same thing and I'm completely missing it?

"...Apple's One Year Limited Warranty..." from the link given.
Which do you think is more likely to be correct? The warranty published by Apple on it's own website, or the response you received from somebody in a shop trying to sell you an extended warranty??

The default hardware warranty is for one full year. The iPhone may be returned for full refund for up to 30 days from date of purchase. The basic one year warranty includes 90 days of free telephone technical support.
Is it possible you just misunderstood the various terms and limitations of the default warranty? Note that there are several term limitations for different aspects of the warranty coverage.

And that is probably what the employee told you. But it is always best to read the warranty, don't go by what the salesperson tells you.
You can also purchase AppleCare + on a new iPhone when you get it. If you re-up at an Apple Store they can add it right then for $99. It will extend your phone support to 2 years, warranty to 2 years, and it covers 2 instances of breakage with a $49 deductible. If you purchase your iPhone from someone else you have 30 days to go to an Apple Store, have it inspected and be able to purchase AppleCare +.
