    Anyone chose TMobile's insurance over AppleCare? Any benefits of going with TMobile?

    Thank you.

    T-Mobile covers theft/loss.

    Carrier insurance covers lost and theft while AppleCare doesn't.

    So it looks like a more comprehensive coverage would be TMobile right?

    For sure, tmobile insurance is even better now that apple charges 79 for replacement.

    It's not actually Tmobile insurance. It's third party.

    I think if you do jump for 10 a month it includes insurance as well

    Read the fine print. Someone I know had it through Verizon for just a few dollars per month but didn't realize it had a huge deductible. Promptly cancelled it when his iPhone broke and fixed it himself.

    Thank you all for your replies. T-Mobile's covers insurance and jump at the same time - it may be worth looking into it.

    Exactly: insurance plus the option to upgrade twice a year makes Jump a better deal than insurance alone.
