    So it's really $150 and you may not even need it.

    I'd rather take my chances and pay the $199 if I have to.

    This is actually pretty nice to have, and it's not too pricey either. Good stuff.

    It's $49 PER Accidental Damage...up to two on one device. So pay $50 each time you crack a screen. Then it would be the normal $199 for a replacement phone....

    I wonder if they would allow you to change to the "new" iphone.

    So at the end of the year, "Ooops, i dropped my iphone. Apple+ please replace it with the new one!"

    The other way to look at it is you get 2 damage replacements for the cost of one without.

    If you are accident prone it could be a good deal if you plan on keeping the phone for the full 3 years.

    Whenever you break your iPhone you buy this :D

    It's a great deal IMO, especially for people like me

    My 3GS crapped out after a year and a half and I had to use a crappy droid smart phone to keep my unlimited data plan. Wish I had Apple Care. I see how it's worth it now, but when I get it on the new phone, I bet I won't even need to use it.

    Obviously not.
    Why would you even think they will upgrade you for free to the new model?:rolleyes:

    Haha, you mean when you do break it, buy the AppleCare at that point?

    It covers two years from date of purchase, not three.

    Whether it's worth it or not depends on the individual and the likelihood of accidental damage.

    Compare to AT&T at $8/month plus $199 deductible per incident.

    One difference being that I think AT&T covers lost/stolen where Apple doesn't.

    That's pretty nice. I may buy AppleCare for the first time ever.
