What is iCare vs. going to Apple Support?

iCare are an independent and dubious business and have NOTHING to do with Apple.
They scam you into paying very high prices for online advice.
As to your question the iPhone warranty is Country specific and not international.
So if you have an iPhone purchased in a different country to where you are using it -you can not get warranty support locally quite unambiguous.
Your iPhones IMEI/UDID and serial number all identify the original market so you can't try it on !
Solution return with iPhone to country of purchase and seek out warranty repair
Pay a third party (Preferably an Appointed Apple Premium reseller/repair agent) to repair at commercial rates
May be more than cost of replacement phone !
Or bin your phone (Not environmentally friendly) and do what you should have in the first place -Buy/rent a phone from official supplier in your own country.
Warranty and Support would have cost you less in the long run.

I have the same question.
Is there a way to know which country the iPhone warranty has for, so we can be a bit careful while buying an used iPhone ?

The warranty on the iPhone is valid only in the country in which the iPhone was originally sold, or in the case of an EU-sold iPhone it will be valid in any EU country. You would need to have the serial number of the iPhone you're interested in purchasing to be able to confirm with Apple the country of original sale. Better to just buy from an authorized dealer; you'll spend more but be far less likely to have hassles.
