    From Apple's site
    "Is the AppleCare Protection Plan transferable?
    Yes. If you choose to sell or give away your Apple product, you can also transfer the ownership of the AppleCare Protection Plan. Please see the AppleCare Protection Plan Terms and Conditions for complete details."

    To a person, yes, but to amazon??

    It looks like you can also "cancel it" and get a partial refund.

    No you cannot transfer it they would not let me transfer the AppleCare for 4s to my iphone 5 so I got a partial refund on the 4s and just repurchased it for my iphone 5

    After they charge the refund fee there might not be much left. I'd sell the phone on ebay or hit up a gamestop they are offering top dollar.

    yes I called AppleCare and got a partial refund. I explained to them that I am purchasing the iPhone five and would be selling my iPhone 4s and I requested a refund of the unused portion of my apple care +. It took about three weeks and they sent me a check in the mail because I had canceled the credit card I had previously bought it on. Actually received the payment Friday and I received $47.54 back of the $99 I paid.

    I'm not sure what refund fee people are talking about. I purchased applecare+ for my iPhone for 4s in October 2011 and I canceled that on September 23, 2012 and I received a check in the mail for $47.54 as a refund

    Called applecare+ today. He asked why I hadn't transfered it to the new phone (grrr, I asked that question to the guy who set up my new phone).The guy on the phone was great, and issuing me a refund for the remainder of my $99.
