Worth it if you are this guy and dropped the phone in the toilet.

Actually, AppleCare+ does cover accidental damage now, for 2 incidents with a $49 deductible.

Apple still replaces them. It's at the genius's discretion whether or not he would charge the customer for the $199 replacement fee

If it has been turned on with water damage then that isn't good. Turn it ASAP and put it in a bag of rice without a case on.

It's not $650 for a new phone if you get it wet. Accidental damage is $200 for a replacement.

I know some one who did exactly the same, they took it back and said it got wet and wasn't working and the apple store swapped it out out of good spirits anyway.

No problem if you have AppleCare+. I guess you don't or you wouldn't be here now. Penny wise and pound foolish I guess.

Sometime ago I almost drop my n95 8gb in the toilet, it was too sudden I decide to hit the phone away instead trying to grab it and manage to safe it from being toilet bowl's lunch. It would be good to take note of this as you know this kind of matter may happen any time especially if you like to bring your phone to chill in the toilet.

Spoken like someone who's never changed a diaper or worked on a farm.

[excrement] happens. Soap works. OP said there wasn't any waste in the toilet.

I will never understand how so many people drop their phones into the toilet.

I mean, How? How is that even a thing???

Do you hold the phone directly over the bowl, do you lay it on the edge of the toilet seat? How???

I'm guessing there falling out of shirt pockets. Either that or careless wiping.

I guess I'm one of the few that enjoys time on the thrown with ZERO items to distract me. Outside a good sports section, that's the one place in my house where kids, dogs and my wife know not to bother me.

The one time my son insisted I told him to just come on in. He did, but then I never offered the "courtesy flush" and within 30 seconds he left and now never even knocks

Don't call people foolish for not buying Applecare+... It is a ripoff for MOST people and I would call you foolish for buying it.

It costs you $100 even if you end up never needing the replacement. If you do it will cost you a $50 deductible so a total of $150.

If you don't buy Applecare+ and you never break your phone it costs you nothing. If you do it costs you $199 to get a replacement phone.

So it costs $50 more but ONLY if you need it... With Applecare+ you are paying $100 no matter what... That is a good gamble.

If you lose the gamble then it costs you $50 more... Easy decision for most people.
