$100... seems like its just a waste of money imo
i bought it on the 4s, havn't needed it. Not buying it for the iP5.
Not a waste of money if you drop your phone.
Nope, I am going SquareTrade. 93 bucks (on sale!) that covers the phone for 2 years incase it decides to take a swim with me, or I chuck it against a wall.
Well it's basically insurance also. Two replacements for $49 each, even covering accidental damage.
If you end up using both of those, you've gotten two years of warranty and two replacements due to accidents for a total of $200. That's about $8 per month for the two year period.
I think you can transfer from your 4s to the 5. You should have 1 year left.
Isnt it only 1 year? Since the iPhone already comes with a year included...
I am 100% buying it. Ironically, I dropped my iPhone on the day of the iPhone 5 announcement and cracked the screen (first time in 5 years). I have best buy insurance so it is getting fixed. But I want to deal with Apple if there is a next time and I want my new phone right away. Best Buy gave me a old slow loaner phone. Also, I want the extra year of warranty.
It gives you an extra year. So two years with AppleCare+
why not AppleCare+ which is for 2 years also?
Never have and probably never will. Im not a clumsy person and in my history of owning all the iPhones I think I have only dropped it once on accident and no damage was present.
AppleCare doesnt cover accidental damage.
AppleCare+ does, which is the only AppleCare for your iPhone
Yes it does.
AppleCare + does, not regular AppleCare.
Edit: Never mind
Can anyone confirm this?
Won't be getting Apple Care for iP5 is a waste of money.
i got dat AMEX so 1 free yr through amex
Yes. You call applecare directly and they can transfer the policy.
Getting it from my next check in a week, and an Apple TV, and a case. Hopefully I'll be able to get all three (well two AppleCare+, Apple TV, and two cases but you get the idea) on the 21st.
AppleCare+ is huge for me because my phones usually get kept for 2 years and get highly busted. I've had to replace several parts in my last few smartphones, and they still end up falling apart by the end of 24mos. Plus, the batteries get replaced at least once from losing steam. With AC+ covering battery replacements, extended warranty, and accidental damage (though accidental damage claims carry the $49 fee), it'll definitely pay for itself. Even if I only use one accident claim and one battery claim, on the 23rd month I might drop my phone and get a whole new pristine one to sell on eBay and buy an iPhone 6!
In the past I've gotten insurance for $8-10/month with $99-150 deductibles and made multiple claims, plus paid for replacement screens and batteries out of pocket, and this will be an enormous savings, plus all genuine Apple parts and walk-in service at a store. Amazing.
I buy my Iphones with my Amex, this way I get an extra year of insurance for free. I've used the coverage once, when I dropped my Ip4 and it cracked; Amex covered me for a full replacement.
I think for AMEX, the insurance is only for 90 days, but they extend the warranty for 1 (2?) years.
the loss insurance is 90 days but yes on the warranty.
5 iphones across family, some since first version.
Never needed service, etc. Look at all the money we have saved over the years.
Not getting it. AppleCare+ is $100 upfront + $50 service fee when it comes time to replace.
I've never had to replace my phone (knock on wood). If I accidentally drop my phone I can just walk in and pay $200 and get another phone. Doing it this way means I don't throw away $100 if I don't use a replacement.
Looks like I was wrong. Regular applecare can be transferred to new equipment as seen below, while applecare(+) can only be transferred to a new person using the same equipment
