Anyone thinking the new Applecare+ is a decent alternative to using a case?

    I hate cases on phones. But I know that I'm bound to drop the phone at some point.

    I feel like with AC+, which now covers accidental damage, I can forgo buying a $30 or $40 case. And if something happens... no big deal! I can just bring it in and flip it out for a nominal fee.

    Sure, it's a fair bit pricier than not getting AC+ and just using a case; but I think I'll enjoy having my phone "naked" a lot more.

    Anyone else thinking similarly? That AC+ enables us to go case-less.

    IMO, it does not replace the protection a decent case can offer. It is limited to two accidents...beyond that you're on your own. A decent case and/or screen protector will limit the amount of wear & tear on the phone so if you go to sell it a couple years down the road you will be better off. Plus, if a case can save my phone from breaking when dropped once in awhile, it is worth the saved hassle caused by the return process.

    Just my $.02. :apple:

    Smash the phone right before you get ready to sell it.
