    For your new iPhone 4S, which are you going with?

    Applecare+ so I can have piece of mind going naked. Better than buying a $50 case + Screen protectors, IMO.

    AC+. This will be my first time getting any sort of AC. I'm coming off a 3GS, and I'm not sure how sturdy the glass fronts and backs are of the 4/4S. Since I refuse to carry my phone in a case I wanted to make sure I'm covered.

    Now, if I go w/out breaking the phone I won't worry about getting AC next time around.

    Applecare does NOT exist anymore with the new iPhone. You only have 2 options Applecare+ or nothing.

    Thanks for clarifying. I thought the "plus" was in addition to the previous $69 coverage. So just 2 choices...Hmmmm....

    Also, for those of us who pre-ordered, it looks like we will have until 11/14/2011 to add the coverage.

    Use a credit card that will double the 1 year warranty.

    but I've heard AppleCare+ is only available in the U.S.? :confused:

    so what about other countries.. do they still get the normal AppleCare option?

    There's no accident damage protection with that (outside of the first 90 days, if the card offers that), IIRC.

    AppleCare+ allows two "accident damage" incidents over the two years, with the replacement phone costing $49 instead of the usual $199 they charge for accidental damage replacements.

    I'm going for the AC+ and won't be using a case on my iPhone 4s.

    I am going with AppleCare+ for my new iPhone. I also got the insurance from AT&T to cover loss or theft. I just don't wanna stress if I get robbed or lose my $850 phone. This phone looks like it should be reliable and I want it to last over two years.
