Right out of the box, I'm happy that there are forums like MacRumors where an old curmudgeon like myself can come and learn. Thank you all I recently purchased an iPhone 5 and the Senior Adviser talked me into purchasing AppleCare Plus. I had AppleCare on my late 2006 24" iMac which paid for itself after I lost a HD. In fact, Apple sent out a technician to replace the drive as I have a difficult time getting around. My question is, was this a worthwhile investment on my iPhone 5? Also, what have your experiences been with AppleCare Plus, positive or negative?
