    I had bought my mbp this September via a friend who was at Work&Travel this summer. She brought it to me.I was reading the threads over here and I decided 1 year warranty is not enough so I want to buy an Apple Care.

    However it is not sold here. I was looking at the apple.com and according to what I understand to activate the Apple Care I should enter the code in the box.

    Is there any problem if I buy a Apple care and ship it to a friend in U.S. and later he tells me the code and I register to the Apple Care. I ask it because there is no Apple care Product in here Turkey and I cannot register with an address here. should I register with an U.S adress?

    Since a mbp is a portable my apple care will be worldwide and I can get help anytime I need here?


    I tried to search but I could not find that topics. any ideas about this??
